Description: 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.

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

Thank you for your kind review, Ricky! We're so happy that you and your group decided to visit us and had a pleasant evening. We take great pride in our choice-cut meats, so it's great to hear that everyone was able to enjoy their experience. We thank you for your patronage, and we hope to see you again! Best, Eric 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

Saturday 2/1/14 we ate at your resturant. We were a group of five people. We had the tamalk steak for two. I have never eated a steak that had tons of fat and was very tough. It was also tough to cut with a steak knife. If you are going to sell steaks for $85 a piece you better get... More

We have been to the Chop House in Scottsdale, AZ so we knew kind of what to expect. We were not disappointed! Wonderful cocktails and wine, great dinner and excellent service. We will return.

Second time dinning at the Chop House and again the experience was outstanding. The food was great, the service was fantastic, and the decor of the restaurant is a throwback to the time when restaurant were built for comfort. The lighting and woodwork in the restaurant are something that the new hi-tech super chrome and noisy restaurants have long forgotten.... More

I just expected a nice steakhouse and got exactly that. I ordered an 8-oz filet that came perfectly cooked as ordered (medium rare) with a caesar salad. My wife ordered the chicken (also very enjoyable) and we shared a "small" dish of asparagus (way plenty for two.) Our server was knowledgeable and efficient. You won't be disappointed!
