WE HAD A DELICIOUS MEAL AND GREAT SERVICE. I CANNOT STOP THINKING ABOUT THE CREME BRULEE.
Excellent across the board. Always try to visit when in Charleston, WV.
I took my wife here for her birthday. We sat in the bar/lounge area where it is quiet and cozy. Our waitress was attentive but not overbearing. The wine list, though not extensive, is full of great choices. We both ordered steaks, and they were prepared perfectly. Prices are on the higher end, but that is what you'd expect to receive this level of service and quality.
Linda was fantastic. Always a perfect evening with perfect food at the chop house. Thank you!
My wife and I split an 11oz filet, it was cooked to the proper temperature, full of flavor and extremely tender. We were traveling so unfortunately we can’t go to The Chop House more often.
Strip steak was difficult to cut and under cooked. Otherwise good place for a working
Excellent food. Bianca was our server. She was very friendly and knowledgeable.
Great food and service.
Fabulous dinner, atmosphere, and the service was the best ever!!
Renee was wonderful! Some other fantastic people here are Jamie, Derick, and Jennifer. They are all so friendly and attentive to us. We dine here regularly because of them.
It’s not a cheap date but you absolutely get what you pay for. It’s a luxury splurge. My wife and I have had 2 anniversary dinners here and everything has been absolutely stellar. The service is top notch, the decor and ambiance is very romantic for couples.
They’re a steak house so that’s what I’ve gotten both times; once a bone-in NY strip, once a filet. The flavor of the steak is absolutely fantastic. Cooked perfectly and excellently seasoned. Both times my wife got the scallops, which are the best I’ve ever tasted. Their martinis are very creative and delicious. And the most recent visit, we split the chocolate decadence for dessert, which was stunningly good.
Be aware that for 2 people, drinks, meals, a side, and dessert plus tax and tip will probably run you $150 or so. So for us, this is a special occasion place only. But as far as fine dining goes, this is as fine a place as Charleston WV has to offer.
Food was fantastic and Chris, our waiter was outstanding.
Enjoyed celebrating my daughter’s new house at this restaurant. Loved the cheesy popovers, the scallop appetizer, the pablano chili Mac and cheese and the crab and lobster cakes.
Very good food. Steaks cooked as ordered. Sides were great. Salad was standard but enjoyed. Strong martini.
Service was fine, but not the best I’ve had at an upscale place. They handed me a colleagues’ steak (filet 8oz vs 11oz) and we had to exchange. The waiter was standing there and didn’t acknowledge the moment. He also didn’t ask us to check the temperature to make sure we were satisfied. Little things like that weren’t on par with other steakhouses.
In reservation, said it was our anniversary...even brought flowers, prior, and asked host put them on table beforehand. Got there - nothing. They didn’t read the reservation...nothing special...even got,placed at a bar booth, rather than a nice table. Something went wrong.
Outstanding service, meal presentation was quite impressive, server extremely knowledgeable on all menu items as well as specials
Great food and wonderful service. Love this place for a nice dinner every time.
This meal was a special get together. The ambiance was great, and the food was superb! The Chop House is an upscale restaurant, so it's not a place that I could afford on a regular basis, but it's a place that is worth treating yourself every once in a while - :)
Great food, great wine list. Would highly recommend it. Thanks.
Very nice early dinner. Split entrees and salads with separate plates for the kitchen. Great bar tender. Most reliably good restaurant in Charleston.
Stopped at The Chop House based on reviews in TripAdvisor while we were on a nationwide road trip.
Food (filet mignon special) was very good. Wine was also very good. Service was excellent- our waitress was very attentive without being too omnipresent.
Our only complaint is that the prices seemed high for the location
All in all the experience was very good. Would recommend.
Phenomenal service, food is even better..was seated quickly and entertained by the staff. Best of everything.
Waiter disappeared after entree, and was unable to get dessert.
Service was above and beyond, the quality of the food was exceptional and melted in your mouth. The mix of ingredients enhanced all flavors.
Not worth the $. Steak was overcooked and not as tasty as I had hoped. Sides were ok. Bread was dry and without flavor.
This is definitely one of the nicer restaurants in the Charleston area. I would break the review out like this:
Service: Outstanding. Our server was attentive and omnipresent without being intrusive in the slightest, and knowledgeable and helpful about the menu.
Food Quality: I had the NY Strip (impeccably cooked) and a baked potato and my wife had the filet with mushrooms. We both had cheesecake for dessert. All of the food was very high quality and certainly makes this place somewhere that we'd want to return.
Price/Value: This is the biggest drawback of this location, and it's a BIG one. Dinner for two, with tip, was in the neighborhood of $180. That's with no appetizer and soft drinks / water for beverages.
Overall: This is definitely a special occasion kind of place, and the food quality and service are as good as you'll find anywhere in the area. That said, their prices are, frankly, a bit on the pricey side for the area (about in line with a Ruth's Chris). They do have a prix fixe menu that may be a better value, so may have to try that the next time we go.
I would definitely recommend this for those that want a special meal in the area. Just be prepared for the sticker shock at the end of the meal.
Superbly cooked 8 oz. filet mignon to requested specifications, between rare and medium rare. Great steamed broccoli.
My boyfriend and I went here for the first time for a date night. The restaurant is beautifully decorated. The staff was very genuine and helpful. We were seated quickly. We had a couple of issues with our waitor, he had forgotten a beer and a side that we had ordered, got the side and never got the beer. It is a long wait time once your food is ordered. I think, besides the steak, some of the food is pricey for what it is. If someone wanted a fancy date night and wanted to easily pay over a $200 bill, that’s the place for you.
One of the best meals we've enjoyed in the past several years! Our server, Terri, was delightful too!
The Chop House chain typically has wonderful food, so my experience may have been a one-off. I ordered a steak with fries (typical American choice). The steak was very tough, even though it was cooked perfectly. The fries (Frittes?) were pretty dry and tasteless and there was no malt vinegar available to spice them up. Not bad by most steak house standards, but this was the Chop House. I expected more, and better.
The service was impeccable. I had a very friendly server, Tiffany who was very attentive and took care of me.
So this is a mixed review. Food was , meh, service was great!
The bar downstairs, where we waited with a drink while our table was made ready, had a real buzz to it. There were lots of local beers available (some on tap) and a good selection of wines by the glass. After finishing our drink, we were shown to out table. The overview of the menu was comprehensive, and the sommelier most helpful. The food arrived quickly, and was outstanding - a word of warning though, the helpings are large, so if you want dessert it'd be a god idea to avoid the appetizers.
We had reservations, but the restaurant was so packed we had to wait about 15 minutes to get our table. We had to speak up and tell a couple that we had reservations, because this couple told people behind us to sneak into the booth that they were vacating. Hostess was not there to tell them no. Food was very good. Noise level was pretty high, but we think that was due to the crowd in the restaurant before the concert that was nearby.
Food was absolutely amazing. My wife and I are foodies, and we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food selections. Very very good, the Chilean sea bass was the best I have ever had. Highly recommend! Excellent !
We initially had to wait so long for the server to come to our table and take drink orders that I considered leaving. This was a Thursday night and the restaurant was not crowded. Waitress came over after another employee saw me looking around for help. Steaks were cooked as ordered. A couple other small complaints about the service I won’t belabor. Point is, if I am paying these prices, I expect excellent service and we did not get it.
Great time celebrating graduation with daughter. Huge portions.
The food was very good except for lamb chops which were tough. The service was very good as well although there was a long wait to get our food ordered. The quality of the meats was very good and the side dishes were delicious. And extra bonus was that you received the discount because we were there for a birthday. We were not expecting that. Love the ambiance.
Visited for an anniversary/birthday celebration. Service was spot on! Bryant did an amazing job making sure all of our needs and wants were met.
They had a party when I was there at 7 and I guess didn’t have enough help. The food was great but a two hour dinner because of the slow service.
The food was wonderful with excellent service! Loved the atmosphere. Great dining experience!
Very good food at a reasonable price. The service is very good as well. Recommended.
