Description: THE VALLEY'S FAVORITE SINCE 1992! Our Motto: Fresh.California. Happy...
THE VALLEY'S FAVORITE SINCE 1992! Our Motto: Fresh.California. Happy! Born out of our love of food and hospitality, Kaiser Grille has been synonymous with quality and value for over twenty years in the Coachella Valley. Founded by Kaiser Morcus in 1992, Kaiser Grille quickly became a hotspot for locals and visitors alike. After a ten year hibernation in Palm Desert, his son, Eric is taking the helm in his new restaurant. We are located at the former Chop House location in Palm Desert. Fresh from a remodel and menu change, we are located just a few blocks away from where it all began over twenty years ago. Yet, as we all get better with age, we hope that this time of rest has given us more passion and inspiration to provide more enjoyment for your dining experience.

Chop House Steak Emporium

In Palm Desert on vacation we decided to try the Chop House as an alternative to LG's, Ruth Chris, Morton's, and Fleming's for a red meat dinner. It was good but in our opinion it didn't measure up to the aforementioned specialty houses. Not that it wasn't good but it lacked that exceptional... read more

Perfect service and wonderful food. Steaks were done perfectly medium rare as requested! Loved the fact that I could get a ribeye that was not the usual double portion (they have one if that is your thing). Hubby loved the lobster mac & cheese.

You can't go wrong at the Chop House. The steak is made to order and the side dishes have the homemade taste. > I will be going back

On a recent business trip to the Palm Springs, CA area, I and my associates had an opportunity to eat at the Chop House. I had a 12 oz grain-fed Rib eye and mashed potatoes. The service was excellent and the food, absolutely delicious. My steak was lean, juicy and cooked to perfection. The mashed potatoes were creamy but just... More

A big group of us were wandering around palm springs looking for a dinner spot on a saturday evening with no place in mind and came across the chop house. We had to wait maybe around 5 mins after being told it could be about 20 mins and were seated to a nice long table in the middle of the... More

Because of their value menu I rated it highly. They offer a lot of very nice choices for a reasonable price. Although, we all thought the entrees lack flavor and were rather bland. Especially liked the various choices of side dishes, the brussel sprouts were exceptional.

I really enjoyed the steaks they were very delectable, perfectly seasoned and cooked exactly as ordered. The service and atmosphere matched well in this wonderful restaurant. A nit pricey but if your looking for a well cut steak this is the place to visit.

The sole was covered in a light batter which I had not expected, but I just took it off. it came with mashed potato and green beans. Owing to a very small portion of beans the previous... More

Feb. 15, 2014 Reservations were made for 6:30 and for a specific table where we enjoy having our dinner. The manager took the reservation and asked if we could come a little early because they were going to be busy that night. We arrived at a minute after 6:00 at the hostess desk and she told the young girl to... More
