I feel compelled to start by saying that I've worked in hotels my entire career and am extremely sensitive to service and execution. That being said, please ignore any negative reviews for this restaurant. It was superb! I've been fortunate enough to eat in some pretty spectacular restaurants and I can honestly say that Orchard Street Chop Shop ranks among... More

My friends and I visited this establishment on Saturday night for restaurant week (3-course meal for $29.95). A couple ran late, we sat 15mins after our reservations time (our bad). Our server took our drink order, about 15 mins later we got our drinks. My cocktail was delish! About 5-10mins later, we ordered our selections from the pre-fixe menu options.... More

My name is Keith Lara and I live here in Dover, NH originally from San Antonio, TX. My wife and I had some friends visiting a few weeks back so we came to the Orchard Street Chop Shop for some fine dining. The menu is great because they also have selections for the vegetarians as my friends wife is. My... More

My wife and I came in an ordered the Tomahawk Steak which is a huge 28 ounce bone in rib eye. The steak came out cooked a perfect medium rare. It had perfect marbling and such great flavor! The creamed spinach was delicious! The atmosphere was comfortable and the server was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. Overall it was an excellent... More

Not thrilled. We sat for an hour watching other tables get their meal. The steak was "meh" the Malbec I ordered tasted like vinegar. The service was slow....I've eaten and drank upstairs and it's been good. Not impressed with the dining downstairs

Busy parents finally got a sitter to go out for a nice meal. From the moment we arrive to when we left it was an amazing experience. Food was amazing and the service was even better!! Thank you for a great night! The Smiths from Dover NH

Three of us went here for my sons 22nd birthday. They were very accommodating when I had to change the number and time of the reservation. The restaurant was not at all busy for a Saturday night. The server couldn't have been nicer but everything came out so slow. Even requests for refills of drinks so I can't blame it... More

Thank you for your feedback. We are in the process of repainting many areas of the restaurant over the upcoming months. We replaced the floor just last year. As for the restrooms and wait station, we clean and organize all areas on a nightly basis, but will make sure to reinspect those areas. We prepare all food to order without... More

I am now going to start responding to TripAdvisor reviews. I am very puzzled over this review because when these folks were done, I went out and spoke with the table. They told me that they were very happy and most shook my hand. We were talking about mutual friends that live nearby and were thanking me for shucking so... More

What a great place to spend an evening! This is a refurbished fire house in the old city of Dover, New Hampshire. With children, the couches near our table contributed to making the evening a pleasant one. The Gaspacho Soup and the Oyster Rockefeller Appetizer were excellent!

Stopped by here for our anniversary dinner since we had always been intrigued by the steak and menu. We had a wonderful Uvaggio Barbera wine with our Chateaubriand, but to be honest, even with a medium-rare order the steak was a bit overdone. Flavor and texture of the steak was wonderful, as was the potatoes and asparagus. Our desserts were... More
