The Chop House has been consistently top notch. The most tender lamb chops I’ve had in many years. Though a solid upscale meal the service was warm and inviting (thanks, Malina!). One of my recommended places for a higher end meal in the Ann Arbor area. Take your time and get dessert.

Our family loves the chop house. The cocktails are wonderful, and they have a happy hour with $5 drinks if you sit on the bar side (where it's first come first served). But it's worth getting a reservation, especially if you plan to eat here on the weekend. The filet mignon with the au poivre sauce is so delicious, and just melts in your mouth. The accompaniments we tried were also wonderful, including the spinach with garlic, garlic smashed potatoes and potatoes au gratin. The lobster bisque was also incredible. So far we've been too full to try the dessert, but I'm sure that will be equally impressive!

Both our steaks had to be returned to be cooked more;
They forgot the Oscar and didn’t apologize at all. Took 15+ minutes to bring it (Oscar) out after the fact and then realized the steak and everything else should be warmed up again because of the delays in delivering everything we ordered and then to re-cook the steaks. Total disaster for a $400 meal!

Had the lobster bisque (without the sherrie sidecar) and French onion soup to start, both were outstanding. Husband had the steak au poivre, I had the beef Wellington and we shared the potatoes au gratin. Be warned the beef Wellington is done very rare but that's fine with me and it was amazing! Husband was very happy with his steak. The potatoes were a huge serving and just ok, but got a tip from the waiter that he fried them up for breakfast so we had steak and potatoes for breakfast the next day :). Finished with creme brulee and a French coffee, everything delicious!

We had a group of 5 visiting Ann Arbor for the weekend. We took in the Michigan football and hockey games and, in between, wanted to treat ourselves to a special meal. We couldn't have made a better choice than the Chop House. The food, service and atmosphere were phenomenal. This will be an annual destination.

Disappointed that the table I requested and the server i requested were not honored. I specifically asked for a certain server and table and that was overlooked completely.I don’t believe they read my comments for the evening, I had guests from out of town and I wanted a certain table and server. Perhaps they didn’t see the notes I had left in the special requests section.

Positive:
The food was phenomenal. The steaks were some of the best I have ever had. Their crab gnocche was also amazing. The Moroccan shrimp was great.

Negative:
My wife and I waited about 10-15 minutes for anyone to come to our table after being seated, so that was disappointing. Our service otherwise was great. Lastly, the drinks were disgusting. That’s not hyperbole. My old fashioned tasted like watered down grain alcohol with a hint of citrus. My wife’s pomegranate martini tasted like cough syrup. Simply inexcusable at such a place.

I gave the restaurant four stars overall because the food quality redeemed the negative aspects. If you desire a drink before/with dinner, I suggest you have wine or beer.

We have been here twice a year for 10 years for birthdays.
First year we were disappointed with the steak....one cowboy and one strip steak.
They were thin,grisly and no taste.
The bread basket is no more,replaced with a heavy,cheesy popover.
Drinks,shrimp cocktail, augratin potatoes,Brussels sprouts and dessert were as goo as usual!
Let’s get back to a great steak!

This was probably one of the least attentive service we have ever had there. We usually go 3 times a year. We were just the two of us and it seemed the larger table got the most attention. Bummer. The Cowboy steak was rare. Medium rare was our order. The flavor was excellent however. The wedge salad was meh. I usually get it with ranch dressing. They changed ranch brands. This one is terrible. I’d like the old one back. Hidden Valley Ranch powder with mayo is what it used to taste like. We celebrated our 13 yr anniversary. We received two fudge balls and happy anniversary spelled out in chocolate. Nice touch. Thank you.

Service was very responsive. Waiter was helpful in describing temperature of meats. Pricey with all sides extra. I did not appreciate a big difference in flavor of the steaks. As part of Main Street Ventures , we chose this for the birthday discount. When we mentioned the birthday to the waiter, we received the full bill (expected, so as to reflect the actual amount to tip), and no instruction that if we provide a drivers license, the bill would be adjuated. We double checked that this actually was Main Street and then asked. Only then did the waiter mention this. I

Service was prompt and it was on a gameday. Appetizer was calamari and although it was good, it was not as good as the last time I dined here. We ordered the hand rubbed aged Waygu steaks. They were delicious but I believe I can grill meat from Wal Mart or Sams to the same outstanding level for significantly lower cost. I don't believe I'll go back again unless its for a special event and even then there are other great restaurants in the area that might take preference.

Food was fantastic. Service was ok. Plan to spend $$ but if the price point surprises you then this isn’t the place for you.

They tried to handle our allergy concerns well but my son with a dairy allergy had goat cheese on his lamb lollipops the first AND second time they brought it out.

They forgot my Voss water and my daughter’s lemons for her water. When they brought the Voss water out they mixed it with my tap water instead of getting me a new glass.

Our shrimp cocktail never came out. But that was ok because we over ordered. I didn’t double check to see if we were charged.

Other than those hiccups the service was otherwise good. Ocean Prime in Troy is our go to place for special occasions and we have never had any issues like this at that restaurant over the last 10 years.

The food though...... wow!! Everything that everyone at was just super. We had a large party and this is what we had......

Appetizers

Lamb Lollipops-perfectly made
Ahi Tuna-sushi grade and delicious
Oysters - Bluepoint (the two sauces that came with it were to die for!)
Seared Sirloin Tips - excellent
Scallops - I’m personally not a scallops fan but this was so good!!

Soups

French onion
Lobster bisque

Entrees
Venison
Dry aged Prime
Ahi Tuna
Beef Wellington
Filet Mignon ah Poivre

Accompaniments
Mac and Cheese
Asparagus
Broccoli
Baked Potato
King Crab Gnocchi

Everything was perfectly cooked. From a foodie perspective the food was top notch. The service for $1000 dinner was not quite what one would have expected.

I would probably return as a couple but I’m not sure that they handle large parties very well from this hopefully isolated experience.

Another incredible meal at the Chop House. We try and go here a few times a year and every single time it exceeds your expectations. It feels like the first time each time you come here. The food is always perfectly consistent and the service staff is fantastic. Our waiter remembered us eating there from almost a year ago and was just amazing. Highly recommend great for a special meal or a celebration. It’s definitely an experience eating here. The beef Wellington was perfect cooked and the puff pastry was crazy good and my mother’s ahi tuna was pretty amazing also. Thanks
