Great views!!! Too bad music on the patio stopped at 7 pm. Wishing it would’ve played until at least 8 pm so we could have enjoyed that.

Started out with wrong wine being brought to table. Followed up with steak cooked well done when ordered Med rare. While steak was recooked, sides left at table to get cold.

No bread offered or available , only a single dessert offered for the night.

Overall, for an alleged first class steakhouse, evening was a disappointment

Steaks were great but sides, onion soup, and lobster mac and cheese were only ok. Pricey for what it was. Still a good experience though and the service was terrific.

The Vail Chophouse was OK. The Steak I had was cook just right, but it so over seasoned with salt and other seasonings it was very over powering. The same with the bacon asparagus side we ordered. The location and views are great, services was fine. I can't recommend this place. when there are so many other great places in Vail to spend you time and money.

Pretty good food. - party atmosphere. We had table partially inside/out. People kept on wanting to squeeze through the very small area where our table was all without a mask. No SoCal distancing and very few people wore a mask in. Service was average.

We had the Poutine fries for an appetizer & they were very tasty. For dinner we split the Tomahawk Rib Eye, which was cooked medium rare as ordered and slathered with delicious garlic butter sauce. It came with yukon gold mashed potatoes that tasted like a blend of fresh & powdered potatoes. Strange flavor & not something I would order if given the choice. Our server was very attentive and accommodating. The overall ambience of the place was underwhelming. Nothing special for a steak house.

The name is deceiving. This is not a place you want to go if you are seeking a quiet or romantic dinner. The restaurant area sits behind their VERY busy bar and the band/karaoke was going strong through part of our dinner. It was incredibly loud and almost obnoxious at times, as patrons were allowed to help the band sing. If you are looking to talk with your fellow guests at your table or even hear yourself think, this isn’t the place for you. The food was good, but overpriced for the atmosphere. Not what we expected at all.

Great golf and service overall. When we entered at 6:05pm the live music was literally ear-piercing. I guess it was carryover from after the lifts closed, but as a musician myself who loves live music I couldn’t believe anyone in the room felt comfortable with the decibel level. Two staff that I mentioned the sound level to admitted that it was terribly high but they had no control because the entertainment was somehow tied to management or ownership. I literally would have left hungry except that the music stopped 5 min after we got there. Great steak. Pretty good wine menu. Right at the bottom of the gondola in Lionshead!

Food was mediocre. Tasted and looked like chain restaurant quality. Over-priced.

Server was polite, but he was assigned too many tables, so he was not attentive to our requests for service. Water glasses went unfilled.

Very noisy.

Absolutely fantastic service provided by Andrew and GM Tony. We each had the filet, which was prepared perfectly and matched beautifully with the brussel sprouts and asparagus.
Honestly, we’ve eaten at every restaurant that the valley has to offer, and it’s safe to say that The Chop House has the best filet, hands down.
Looking forward to our next dining experience!

Restaurant was good, our server was great. However the manager was shockingly rude. Two of us in our party ordered medium rare steaks. Mine was clearly over cooked in comparison so I sent it back. The manager then proceeds to bring me back the same steak and argue with me that it was in fact medium rare based on the temperature inside when it was obviously medium to medium well based on the color. After 5 minutes of this she finally agreed to bring me a new steak. I’ve never experienced having to prove myself to a manger. If I’m paying $50 for a steak I expect it to be cooked correctly.
