Great food and a very knowledgeable staff!
Our meal was great as usual. We wanted to put in a good word for our server Jamieson. He was wonderful. Attentive and efficient but not obnoxious. He engaged us in great conversation. He knew the menu extremely well and helped us with our order. We would definitely request him if he is available the next time we come back.
Still the best filet in Grand Rapids! And, if you get "John" as your server, then all the better!
First time visit and the service was great. I did go there on my birthday for the special but I'll be back soon for date night.
I am a steakhouse snob and always preferred Ruth's Chris over any steak house. I will now only go to the Chop House when I am in the mood for a great steak. I have never been disappointed when dining at the Chop House and always look forward to going.
From the moment we walked in the ambiance was inviting and warm. We loved every moment. The appetizers were delicious, the French onion soup was amazing. We both had the bone in filet and it was cooked to perfection. Our waitress was June. She was attentive, and extremely kind. We would definitely go back!
Our waitress was excellent! I am unable to eat a steak, but my husbands was perfect! The crab lobster cakes were too breads for me. I'd go with something else next time. We were sad to discover they were out of their amazing au gratin potatoes. Relaxing, pampered atmosphere made it a special evening.
Food was amazing and the staff was beyond amazing! ! Karly, our waitress, made everything perfect! So friendly and thoughtful. Really showed that she cared for the customer and wanted them to enjoy their meal. Her recommendations where spot on and her asking if wanted a picture to capture the moment, those are the extra details that really put your restaurant over the top for us and we can't thank you enough.
Based on reviews, we made a reservation here for our 28th anniversary. Food was DELICIOUS, but our server made us feel rushed the entire meal. She asked to take away the bread plate even though we had eaten only ONE piece of the bread, she asked to take my husband's appetizer plate when 1/2 of his appetizer was still on it. She then came by the table when he was 1/2 way through his steak, and STILL had his knife and fork in his hand, and asked if we needed "a box". At that point, I asked her if there was some sort of time limit on the table. DEFINITELY NOT the tone we were looking for to celebrate. As good as the food was, we won't be back, and don't recommend if you're looking to spend time eating a great meal. It could have just been the server, I didn't notice any other tables in our area being rushed in this manner....
Our server was very attentive and pleasant. Food came out timely and prepared perfectly!
We finance and I went to Chop House last week for my 40th Birthday. We have been to the Chop House a few times before. The lamb chops appetizer were just ok. I ordered my filet medium and it arrived rare. The garlic mashed potatoes were very bland. My finance ordered the Dover Sole. The waiter destroyed the sole while trying to de-bone the fish. The waiter was breathing so close to the fish while de-boning that my finance was hesitant to eat her food. The half off price for the birthday brought the bill from $160 to $80. Still not worth the money at $80 for the quality of food that we received. We decided that this was our last visit to Chop House.
Bartender was amazing!
Love the old school feel of this place. Earlier reservations mean you have the place to yourself.
We had a wonderful first time experience at the chop house. Everyone made us feel so special and the food was absolutely delicious! We will be back for sure!
The food and service was awesome
The Chophouse is our goto place for a special dinner. We've taken our children and their spouses to dine also, to introduce them to excellent food. By far our favorite place for a fine dining experience.
What a wonderful dining experience. We went out for my husbands birthday and a date night before baby is due. The service, ambiance and food was excellent. We will defiantly be going back!
The Chop house has never let me down from a business or special occasion event!
Once again everything was great. Each visit has been a unique experience. Interaction with wait staff continues to be a fun experience. The food is always second to none. The Perfect Manhattan is, as always, perfect.
On Date Night. Recommend their house salad. Goat cheese is a favorite of mine and their dressing had great flavor. We both had Filet. Mine was cooked, temperature wise perfect, but there was too much charred edges on the meat that conflicted with the taste. My S.O. ordered Medium and was cooked well done. We also ordered the shrimp add ons. No problems, except their were 3, and your spending a pretty penny for them. I recommend to anyone to add a sauce. The steak is moderately seasoned and thats all you're getting. Steak on a plate. For sides we ordered the mushrooms, mac n cheese, and au gratin potatoes. Mushrooms were okay, they helped compliment my bland steak. Mac and cheese was not a hit. Too much crumble topping. Potatoes were a huge hit. Neatly prepared, great taste and they looked fun to eat. Last, dessert. We shared the Creme Brûlée and was overcooked. We had just got back from Jamaica and raved over a passion fruit creme brûlée but this was no comparison.
I hate to give such a negative review but for being steak snobs, and our first time there, it was a disappointment. Not to say I won't be coming back because I enjoy the atmosphere but it was not the food experience I was hoping for on my first visit.
Great dinner with friends. We had the cowboy steak. Yum.
The Chop House never disappoints!! The food is amazing and the service is top notch!!
We went here with 2 other couples for a birthday celebration. It’s a restaurant we love using for special occasion. It’s pricey but never disappoints.
Wonderful evening- low lights romantic setting.
Our waiter Andy gave us great service.
Tried it for the first time and fell in love! Food and drinks were fantastic and worth the price. Our server did not do a great explaining how meals are priced (as first time customers). Price for entree does not include side, but sides are big enough for 2 people. Overall a quiet, romantic spot with excellent food. Definitely dress up a bit or you may feel out of place. All the deserts were either cheese cake or chocolate so be prepared for that.
Have you ever had so much steak you can feel your heartbeat during your meat sweats? Fantastic.
If you want great food, there is nowhere better than the Chop House. It's pricey so we only get the opportunity to go here for special occasions. I was a little disappointed with the ambiance this time. We were placed at a table looking directly at the server station in the middle of the restaurant. My chair was bumped into at least 3 times as servers were trying to get to and from the server station where they punch in orders and place dirty dishes. Our table was practically on top of the table next to us so not quite the romantic experience we really hoped for.
The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. The staff provided excellent food recommendations.
The chop house offers the finest dining experience in Grand Rapids Michigan downtown. Plan on at least 1.5-2 hours of dining pleasure. The always satisfy customers happy or complaining and I would not hesitate to dine there again. To date I visited the chop house 10 times.
To The Staff at Chop House:
Thank you! We asked for a cozy table since it was a special occasion and were seated in a very nice area. The service and presentation were excellent and the food tasted exceptional. We had a great eveing dining with you!
The experience was amazing. The service was outstanding and the food was delicious. The Chop House gave us a great feeling when we left. The hospitality was truly outstanding we will be back.
Your wait staff and bartenders were next to none. OUTSTANDING . Top of the line . Catherine at the bar was so friendly and attentive we are back in town in march and already planning to visit her at your establishment . From start to finish a smiling friendly waiter or waitress makes the whole meal and evenings an opportunity to get away from the grinds of today. See you in march
Went there for my birthday. Jordon our waiter, he was awesome. All around great service and meal. Will definitely go back
As always, you came through with flying colors!
Not only was the atmosphere and cuisine great, the service was impeccable!
their servers are awesome...very friendly and interactive with customers..first time there, so I'm not sure if the kitchen was slow due to being busy or if that is a common thing thərə because it was over an hour for our dinnər to be served from when we ordered, and the server was defiantly apologetic for this...still, got 50% off the food since we went on my wife's birthday, and we would likely go back because the food was delicious...
I was there for an anniversary dinner. We were seated next to a main thru way, all wait staff moved by constantly and quickly. We were seated opposite on a table. It was so noisy that we basically had to raise our voices and almost shout to hear one another. Absolutely, no intimacy. Difficult to even hold hands. It became stuffier and stuffier as evening progressed. I was very happy to leave and get fresh air. Even the people that left just ahead of us, first thing out of a woman's mouth from a pair of women, "Fresh air! I could hardly breath in there." The wait staff was prompt. The waitress was good. The food was ahhhhhh, so good.
Great food and service.
Birthday dinner! Fabulous in every way. Best table in the house too, thanks to the awesome staff.
We went for Valentines Day and as usual The Chop House staff went above and beyond to make sure our evening was tremendous. Food was amazing, and always love the ambience and drink/wine selections.
Chop house is definitely a steak. Other dishes are hard to have the same delicious taste
