Nice, quiet dinner

The avocado and crab salad along with oysters "rock" were excellent but the chocolate cake was amazing.

Went here on our final night to have a nice dinner. Wow were we blindsided. My Cosmo tasted like battery acid and husbands Manhattan was the same – sent them both back. Caesar salad was bland, better one at the Blue Moose Pizza restaurant. I got a shrimp/pasta entrée that was marginal. Husband ordered a medium filet and it was... More

Went for lunch the other day. The chairs on the deck are designed for munchkins, the tables very small (so they can pack more people in) and after 45 min to get lunch we wished we had just gone to McDonalds. The food would have been just as good, and not cost $75 for two. Pulled pork sandwich is dry... More

Great food, great drinks and best of all suited for all the ages. Took our granddaughter for a night out and it was superior. Kids menu with Mahi Mahi grilled to perfection! Gramps had fabulous trout and my oysters were perfect. Wine list covers the bases. Great service from Allie!.Worth the price for quality food and service.

Food is average at best but did not come close to being worth it for the price. Salmon had little flavor, crab cakes were just ok and oysters were tasteless.. Server tried hard but given price was simply out of her league. Location at bottom of gondola makes it attractive but food is not worth it.

The worst restaurant on our visit. First we had to brush our seats off and the floor was dirty. Caesar salad was so bad that the 3 of us that ordered it left more than half on our plate. Service did not ask about it. Main dishes - so so. We had to ask for one of the sides we... More

This place does all the usual stuff you expect in a steakhouse. and it does it well. Nice room with decently spaced tables and decent service. Wine list mainly US wines and some notable vintages.

We ate at the Chophouse about 4 years ago and the food was terrific. This trip the steaks were not good cuts of meat. I had a filet that was so dry and tasteless. The whole restaurant seemed to have gone down in the way it looked and there was as a random magician walking around...weird. If you are looking... More

We ate hear on a Friday night and the steak was excellent. It's a nice American steak house with all the normal cuts and sea food options. And given where it is, the prices are quite reasonable. Worth a visit if you are in Lionshead.
