This is plainly one of the best restaurants in Ann Arbor -- I would personally put it in the top 3. Food, service, and ambiance all hit the bull's-eye.

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.

Excellent service and great food! When the wine we picked wasn't available, the manager came over and recommended one that tasted excellent for just a few $ more. We loved our first visit here and will definitely be back next time we're in Ann Arbor!

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

The service, food, and atmosphere were terrific. We were celebrating our daughter’s 40th birthday, and the staff was outstanding, helping us take photos, making sure the cake and candles were delivered in an appropriate time, and very attentive to every detail of our dinner. We will definitely go back. One of the best meals we’ve had in Ann Arbor for sure!!! :)

Our visit was a bit tempered by the presence of large groups during a convention week. This slowed the beverage service noticeably. The experienced and professional serving staff jumped in and saved the day. The long tenure serving staff of the Chop House is its hallmark, along with a classic prime steakhouse menu - a major reason to return year after year.

Good food. Our waitress was very nice but one of the servers or busboys (I'm not sure his role) was very curt and impatient. He offered to bring us water and after we told him that our waitress had already taken our water order he gave a very abrasive response of "Well maybe I can expedite that." Our waitress was literally right behind him bringing our water. He had a similar abrasiveness when he offered us popovers. He was young looking like maybe an undergraduate in college. He didn't behave professionally and seemed to be impatient with his coworkers. Neither my wife or I had a full place setting when we sat down so I asked this guy for another fork to eat the popovers. When he brought the fork he did kind of thrusted it out at me in an aggressive or impatient manner. Just really bizarre behavior and body language. Our waitress later brought us replacement silverware. Besides this strange server, I notice there doesn't seem to be much of a dress code. A lot of the men coming in dressed very casually. I even saw a guy wearing a baseball cap at his table. I'm there with dress pants, a shirt and tie. I feel like if I'm going to be spending a few hundred dollars (which is A LOT of money for someone like me) on a meal in what is supposed to be an upscale establishment I should be surrounded by people with more respect for the restaurant. My biggest pet-peeve is people wearing hats inside seated inside a restaurant.
