Nice, quiet dinner

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

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.

We had a great dinner about 5 after a long day of skiing. Lamb chops and mac and cheese are great...yes, mac and cheese at a chophouse. We've had all three and they are great. Nice wines by the glass and service was fantastic. Reservations are needed - she snuck as in even early.

We dined here twice during our ski week at Vail in March. The service was excellent and the food & wine selection good. A good place to go with a big group. Prices reasonable by Vail standards.

Really, it was magic, we had dinner reservations but had no idea that they have their very own magician from 5:30-8:30 ish. Other food was very good but the magician was amazing and was all my son could talk about the next day. We would strongly recommend the restaurant for families for the good and entertainment

We went here looking for an amazing steak and were willing to pay for it. Unfortunately they didn't deliver. No indication of whether cuts are grain / grass fed and at $50us for a steak, that's pretty poor. Paid an extreme price for pub grub. Steak was no better than the local pub. Very disappointing.

Ruth Chris prices but not Ruth Chris food. Skip it unless you want to spend $50 on a $10 steak. The brussel sprouts were undercooked and by the tie the server came back to check we were finished. Or would have sent them back. Just go for drinks and an app
