Have tried the Chop House a few times and have never had a bad experience, however, I have never been wowed either. The food and service is OK but the last time we went for a family member's birthday the waiter had terrible body odor. Unfortunately, that's all we really remember about a $200 dinner.

Great Bar, Food was OK but nothing exceptional. Good choices on menu. Men had the New York Strip Steaks which were somewhat on the tuff side. Ladies had the Fish which both said were excellent. Prices are somewhat on the high side for what you get. Would eat there again but will get something besides the steak.

I was there for the first time and now I know why I have heard so much about this place. The food was excellent. We went for my nieces 30th bday and we received such friendly service. There were at least 3 servers, 1 of which was from Jersey near us. We had nice conversation with all of them &... More

From the moment you leave your car with the valet the experience of great service begins. The pleasant greeting from the hostess, the great bartenders (excellent beer selection) and the awesome wait staff. Our waiter Brian, who we have had as a waiter in the past, makes our visit special. He provides good suggestions and is not pushy. He is... More

We had a very nice steak dinner tonight, with good side dishes. The bread was disappointing (gummy in the middle), but I suspect that was an aberration for this restaurant. Although we are local, we will not eat here often because of the prices, although the food quality was good. If you happen to have any mobility impairments, be sure... More

The steaks were okay and the drinks were good but I was hoping for better than 'okay.' We had the special because the server really pushed it--wished I hadn't.

From the atmosphere to the food to the outstanding service, Local Chop and Grill House compares to any fine steakhouse in NYC. Scallops were tender and tasty. The tempting selection of sides makes choosing very difficult. A really fine meal in a lovely setting. Excellent attentive server! You feel like an honored guest from the time the valet takes your...

Great food and service. Nice atmosphere. Nicely renovated. Recommended to anyone local or visiting. Desserts were a bit small for price but very tasty.
