Excellent dinner for my girlfriends birthday
Always a great experience! Bummed that there wasn’t any creamed corn, but when it’s made fresh-not ordered & frozen/canned...you can’t always win.
We were there very early due to other plans for the evening. We walked in and realized the brightness outside would take us a few min. to have our eyes adjust. It was way to dark inside at 5:00. I would think someone could adjust the lighting as the night goes on. There were probably 4 other tables in the restaurant. We were seated in a corner with my back facing some door that went into the kitchen. I felt like my money wasn't good enough to be put at a table not in the corner. There was another table of 2 people seated right next to us. They were seated at a 4 top that wasn't shoved in a corner.They arrived just about the time we were getting ready to leave. Not sure if we will be back. There are many places in Grand Rapids that serve the same quality food and have good service to choose from. I realize all restaurants have "bad" tables. Those you don't usually don't seat till the rest of the tables are sat.
We enjoyed an excellent elegant dinner. We love this place!
Each course was perfect. Although it’s really only the classics, they do them right! Best food we’ve had in GR this year.
Was expecting a much better steak for a $200 dinner
Outstanding food and outstanding service. Wait staff always professional!
The Chop House has a very welcoming atmosphere. Feels like an extension of one’s home but with an outstanding chef and staff.
The Chop House has a nice atmosphere however, the pricing for what you get is too high.
I had the Cowboy Steak with Oscar sauce, potatoes, Pork Chops and Lobster Bisque.
The Oscar sauce was bitter and runny, the Potatoes where not smooth as they should be.
The Pork Chops sat on the plate with no garnishment and had no flavor.
To compare this to a Mortens is an understatement. Go across the street to Judson's.
We always greatly enjoy the scallops, service and ambience at the Chop House. What changed this time was our impression that the salads, soups and sides have gone up a notch in quality. And those popovers - delightful!!
AWESOME food and time!!!
We had a wonderful anniversary dinner at The Chop House. Everything was cooked perfectly and great service by Jen. Thank you!
Dual Anniversary & Birthday Dinner ~ As always, we fully enjoyed our dinner celebration at The Chop House. We shared the Calamari appetizer, a bowl of Lobster Bisque and the Wedge salad. For entrees we ordered the Beef Wellington (cooked to perfection) and the Espresso Rubbed Filet with a side of Au Gratin Potatoes. All of the food was very flavorful! Service from start to finish was A+. We were able to sit, relax and just enjoy.
My party was early and I was late. Texted them and they miss informed me. They said that they were in the cigar lounge but were not. I had a change to tour the lower level and it was nice. Almost wanted to take up smoking but passed. Andy was our waiter and informed us the cigar lounge won't be available to smoke till after 11pm. The bread before the meal was great along with the salad I ordered. Main meal was filet mignon-8oz. Done to perfection, medium-well. Melted in my mouth, if I can get by with saying that. It was my birthday and had to save room for dessert and that was the brownie with layers of more chocolate on top. Top it off with a scoop of sorbet and 'Happy Birthday' written with more chocolate sauce on the plate. Very nice over-all.
My husband and I had heard that The Chop House in Grand Rapids was a great place to celebrate a birthday. So we made our reservation for September 3, 2019. We had a great time. The food was above our expectations. Our waiter was excellent!! He took time to answer our questions and made some recommendations, which all turned out to be a great choice~ My husband had a 16 oz. New York Strip steak that was dry-aged for 45 days. He is still talking about how good it was. I went with the Dover Sole with an Almondine sauce. It was a great choice. Our dinner was one of the best that we have ever had. We will for sure be back~ We just talked our daughter and son-in-law into making a reservation to experience The Chop House.
Exceptional, Brandon was outstanding as our server!Thanks for a wonderful evening!
Everything was fantastic and delicious. Would highly recommend the lobster bisque. The icing on the cake was when our waiter, Brandon, found us in a separate building after we had left, bringing us the leftover box we forgot. Above and beyond what we expected. We noted it was our anniversary, and even though we did not order dessert, they brought us out a beautiful plate of VERY decadent chocolate truffles, wishing us a happy anniversary written in chocolate drizzle. The sides are quite large, so splitting one or two between 2 people is very reasonable. The garlic mashed potatoes were our favorite.
We had a wonderful and exquisite dinner! The staff was great and made great recommendations for dinner and wine. The ambiance was quiet and made for a nice candle light dinner.
We picked The Chop House to celebrate my 50th birthday and we were not disappointed. My wife had a Salmon dish and I tried the Beef Wellington. The service is remarkable and the menu has a nice variety.
Wonderful wait staff excellent , food great
Food and service was excellent. The only complaint;I wanted to go to the cigar bar, but not open till 10 pm. You need to make it available earlier.
Great dinner celebrating a birthday. Service was very attentive and helpful. Filets were prepared to perfection and lobster bisque was delicious.
We enjoyed our recent visit and meal at The Chop House - Grand Rapids. The food, drinks, and service were all very good. It was a little too dark in the restaurant, but the overall ambiance was very, very nice. I had grilled salmon, french onion soup, a wedge salad, scalloped potatoes, and macaroni and cheese. It all tasted very good. I would definitely come back for dinner here again, and I would recommend this restaurant to others.
We have had better servers in our past experiences. Food was delicious as always. Great value if you're going on your birthday don't know that we would go any other day.
The Chop House is great! We always have a great and delicious meal there. It never disappoints!
While most of the evening was as good as expected; as the evening continued the temperature in the dining room became uncomfortable warm. Also it was quite a wait for the desert to be served. We will come back, but for the cost, you expect more.
Only a once in a lifetime meal.....to expensive to eat there more than once
The food was fantastic and the service was the best I have ever had. Would strongly recommend to a friend.
Yes I would recommend the Chop House to a friend as it is the nicest formal restaurant left in Grand Rapids. However it is very expensive and they have reduced the size of their side dishes and their appetizers. We got the sea food platter for a part of four and normally it is just beautiful and overflowing with wonderful shell fish, however it now overflows with a lot of green salad to make it look great. Very small portions of crab, lobster claws instead of real lobster tail, four medium shrimp and four oysters for an outrageous price. Cutting corners on this signature appetizer if fool hardy! I will not be fooled again. Disappointed.
We had a wonderful evening food drinks and service were excellent. Grayson was a pleasure. We will be back
The food and the service were both excellent! Will definitely return again.
Exceptional food and service. Wonderful experience.
The food was fantastic, the service even better!
We were greeted with enthusiasm and promptly taken to our table. The server was very cheerful, efficient and prompt at accommodating our requests. The food was great and they had no problem with us splitting an item.
The lobster I got was just fair. The steak my wife got was outstanding and the service was great!
Sea bass entree was excellent again.
The service was amazing! Food was impeccable. Not cheap but worth the price. We had a wonderful time
Best birthday experience. I wish I could remember our servers name because he has been our server for the last couple years for my bday. He’s incredible and always make our experience perfect. Tall guy with shaved head and goatee
My wifes birthday and it was great. Kim our waiter was more than excellent. Great place and great staff.
I took my fiancée here for her birthday since they give 50% off food if you come in on the day, though we likely wouldn’t otherwise pay that much for a meal.
We got in a little before our reservation to enjoy a happy hour drink at the bar. Hard to beat $5 cocktails and wine of the day! The bartender was friendly and attentive - good start to the evening.
After a bit we sat for our dinner. Our server was friendly and informative, giving recommendations and educating us a bit on their food. She did a great job throughout.
We started with a wedge salad and lobster bisque then each ordered a steak and split the brussel sprouts and king crab gnocchi sides. Here’s where the lower review comes from: our steaks were very bland and fairly flavorless. Even at 50% off, I was quite disappointed to pay that much for so little flavor. The brussel sprouts were so-so, and the rest of it was good. We ended with their creme brûlée cheesecake, which I highly recommend to anyone who likes either.
All in all, a great experience but we probably won’t be back. It’s very difficult to justify paying over $100 (with a 50% discount) for a dinner out that we didn’t thoroughly enjoy. If you’re looking for great, flavorful and juicy steak, you may want to look elsewhere.
