Outstanding table preference accommodations! Beautiful restaurant & fantastic service! Overall a good experience. Steaks all (5) lacked a bit of that grill flavor and searness and most importantly were all a bit colder than expected and both baked potatoes & mashed potatoes were also not very hot. Didn’t complain paid the ful 500.00 check +tipped 20% deserts were the favorite part of our Easter Sunday Lunch

I think price / value for Ann Arbor is bit on the expensive side, the food was very good, but steak prices were close to Miami

Went to the Chop House for my birthday. Unfortunately, the service was not up to par for a restaurant of this caliber. The server was younger and just didn't seem to have the finesse and attention that I have experienced previously. Lobster bites were OK, I have definitely had better elsewhere. The steaks were very good, but I did not care for the mac and cheese at all. Warning, if they ask you if you want sherry topper with your lobster bisque, you will be charged extra for this. Felt ripped off by it. Also, to use the restroom you have to go downstairs where there is a cigar bar and very unpleasant. Given the troubles of parking in AA and other items I have mentioned, there are much better steak places to frequent. No plans to go back anytime soon.

We enjoyed our meal overall, but I wish that we realized before we ordered how large the portions are. Everything needs to be split there. Also, if I'm paying $50 for a steak, I don't think I should have to pay for sauce on it (another $10 - $12). Service was good; desserts were delicious. The creme broule is my favorite.

It's a sad day for me to even have to write this but I felt compelled to do so after our recent experience. We've been dining at The Chop House for years and noticed a major difference in the food quality when we visited this past weekend. Poorly prepared, food quality overall and smaller portions but yet the same price or even more than the last time. What happened?? After chatting with a few employees, we learned there are new owners. What a shame for such a fabulous establishment to take such a nose dive. Letting the relationship go with Zingerman's was a big mistake...not even sure what to call the things served for bread service. Just yuck. The calamari was a huge disappointment...utterly swimming in sauce even though we requested light sauce. The calamari itself was chewy and I do believe we counted 3 cashews in the entire appetizer. This has always been a favorite appetizer of ours...never again. I could go into greater detail but why bother...such an utterly disappointed visit to one of my treasured spots. We'll be looking for a new favorite. Side note: the service was stellar once the server realized he had been sat but we suspect he wasn't told as we sat there for nearly 15 minutes before we were even approached for a drink order. New owners - pay attention. People are talking and it's not good!

I took my husband to The Chop House for his birthday. They have a wonderful birthday discount and I thought it would be nice to try. What a great experience! The atmosphere and service is top notch, and the food is something to write home about. The crab and lobster cakes were delicious, our steaks were cooked to perfection, and the creme brûlée was the perfect ending to our meal. We will definitely be back again.

Service from the host to the waiter was exceptional. Food was prompt and cooked to perfection. A wide range on information was provided for ever part of the meals leaving no questions behind. The atmosphere is set for intimate encounters with candle light. With a table seated at the window you get a great view of Ann Arbor. Only inconvenience was the front door slams quite loudly and shakes the front of the building.

The food was so good I felt guilty eating it. I had the beef wellington and my son had a filet, both cooked to perfection. The star of the show, however, was the king crab gnocchi. It was truly a memorable dish. We'll be back.

I was just talking about the Chop house to a coworker about their happy hour. They are excellent, and definitely worth the money. Plus, its half off on a dinner for two on the food portion on the day of your birthday. Bring ID they will check.

Brought my husband to The Chop House for his birthday. The staff were great and very professional. We were very disappointed in the quality of the steak. We both ordered the Porterhouse. The steaks lacked flavor and had a lot of grizzle and tough areas. For the price we expected a much higher quality product. It leads one to believe that they serve lower quality product when it is a birthday meal.

All the dishes except fresh oysters and jumbo shrimp cocktais were too salty including french onion soup, lobster bisques, and evev steaks were heavily salted! However, the desert was excellent!
I would recommend this restaurant to my friends with the recommendation of requesting much less salt! Heavily salted foods are the number one enemy for our health! Unfortunate that this restaurant is not following the trend for health, less or no salt in foods!!

Seems that many of our party members’ favorite have been changed or are no longer on the menu, including the salmon no longer comes with the cornbread under the salmon or with other accompaniments it used to have, spoon bread is no longer on the menu, lemon bar no longer available for dessert. When guests come hoping to enjoy favorite items, they are naturally disappointed when they are no longer available. Other favorites in the past, going back years, that have not shown up for years tho we might like them to, are what were sumptuous dark chocolate crepes with white chocolate filling and S’mores.

We always enjoy celebrating birthdays and anniversaries at The Chop House. The service is excellent. The food is usually top notch. On our last visit, we ordered broccoli for a side dish. The broccoli was a bit overcooked and was not served hot. That is why I rated the food only 4 stars this time.
We will definitely be back because everything else met our expectations.
