Located in the heart of Southwestern Montana, the Livingston location was the original Chop House that began May 22, 2001. In 2004 we relocated a few blocks down from the original location to an old railroad receiving warehouse just a few feet away from the main line of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad now known as Montana Rail Link. The food is fun, the service is great and you will leave knowing you did't just have dinner, but a dining experience.

Surprisingly great all the way around

My family and I went to the restaurant knowing it was good but it had been a while since I last visited. Let me start by saying it was a Friday night and they were extremely busy so while we had made reservations it still took a little while to get a table (but there were nine of us).

We love R&C but last night was unpleasant. We went on Sunday night to try the crayfish All 4 ordered them.We were served the tiny crayfish with either 1/2 ear of funny looking corn(like they cooked dried field corn) or boiled potato, even though the ad says corn and potato. One in the party could not eat that corn and... More

I have always enjoyed the Rib and Chop house. Good food and good service. Prices have always been acceptable. Went there recently and am disappointed in a couple of things: 1) I think that soup or salad should come with ANY meal, and then you should get choice of side with that. I mean, come on, how much does it... More

All the items for our party of 4 were delicious - from the burgers to the chicken. The salads were fresh and colorful. We appreciated the extensive wine list, as well. Our waitress was very friendly. On this particular night, all the tables were full and the place was packed!

This is our go-to restaurant. The staff is awesome...friendly, fast, and they deliver outstanding service! The food is consistently good and the ribs are great! Pay the extra $1 and get a full size dinner salad that is fresh and delicious. The venue is generally crowded, and the bar seating has the full dinner menu. Sitting in the bar is... More

We were so happy that our Motel 6 gal recommended this place for dinner. We felt like we were at a place near home, not like a tourist. The food was great! Highly recommend it!

I live in Livingston and hit the Rib and Chop every other month or so. Always busy. Hate the very old classic rock/pop that is always on. Bar has TVs for sports but not a great sports venue. The food is usually very good and wait staff is great. Amazing how busy it always is considering Livingston has other good... More
