    Definitely not the fancy steakhouse we were seeking. Food was expensive, Ill prepared and tasteless. We had to send our steaks back 2 times. No manager intervention. Extremely disappointed

    We were told there were no more baby back ribs but as we were leaving saw a fresh rack delivered to not one but two other customers. I ordered sea bass which I commonly order. When it arrived it had a very fishy smell which I have not experienced in the pat. The taste was worse than the smell. Not sure if it was being POC or just bad overall service and food.

    Limited menu. The menu was not what was online nor on open table. We came for the seafood tower, it wasn’t offered. They were having happy hour and live music. It was so loud you could barely hear our own conversation. The service was mediocre at best. Drinks were good. Oysters and shrimp cocktail, excellent. Did not offer any entree fish options besides sea bass. Had the French onion soup and Cesear salad, both good. But not what we were expecting from the Vail chophouse.

    Maybe we caught them at the wrong time but we waited a long time to get served and the food was not prepared the way we asked. There were multiple attempts to make it right. Drinks were good but all in all I would not recommend this place for the price.

    Less than ideal. So many amazing restaurants in Vail, so this one would be close to last on my list. Food was just okay. Service was terrible! We were excited for a steak dinner and were super underwhelmed.

    There was a musician that was playing VERY LOUD so that we couldn't have any type of a conversation. The sea bass was a ridiculously small portion, especially for the price. I won't ever eat here again.

    My husband and I had booked reservations at the Vail Chophouse because it was close to where we were staying and the menu looked good. Our last night I’m Vail found us with a great table on the patio. My husband ordered the crispy chicken breast and I the sea bass. My meal hit a hiccup in the kitchen and I was unable to eat with my husband while the kitchen worked to correct the error. Kari our waitress, and Tony the manager on duty, made an unsolicited decision to comp my entree, the glass of wine I had while waiting, and our dessert. This was done with smiles and frequent check ins to see that everything was to my liking. It was so refreshing to have a team at a restaurant do the right thing and make the effort that Kari and Tony did to ensure that we enjoyed our evening to the max. The food was excellent and the service spectacular! We will definitely return and highly recommend you try the Vail Chophouse - you’ll be glad you did!

    We got there at 4 and left after 7 because we were having so much fun. The food was awesome and the drinks were even better. Kevin from Austin did a great job waiting on us. However the real highlight was listening to Phil sing. He had us all cracking up and loving every song. Just the whole experience was a blast. Can’t wait to go back!

    Very limited menu. Overrated … steak good not great for price. If you want to have a smaller steak there were no options for that. We are all about paying for a good meal but we were disappointed. I felt they called it chophouse and jacked up price. The service was good and the view was beautiful!

    This is the second time in a month our food was over cooked. For $59, a medium rare steak should be medium rare. Martini was crazy expensive at almost $24. Server was very nice and efficient;however, we won’t be back for a while.

    The food was terrific. We were a party of five and each had a steak, salad and ordered the charcuterie board and lobster Mac n cheese for starters. Every thing tasted amazing and all of our steaks were perfectly cooked to the level we each requested. Our waiter, Kevin, was great. He was attentive, took his time with us when while we ordered, and helped us decide what to eat. We also ordered dessert and it was gone in seconds.
