This was my second visit and we went to celebrate my MILs birthday. I would never choose this restaurant, but on this occasion, the decision wasn't mine. The restaurant is nice, and overall, it is hard to say bad things about it as they deliver what they promise. I do think it was a better than average experience, but it... More

Went with my wife for our Anniversary. Maybe I hit the wrong night, but the steak was average for both of us. Service was excellent and we were treated very well. Others have told me they enjoyed it, so I may give them another chance, but not soon at the prices.

The good news: the celery soup was one of the best soups I've ever had, and the salmon entree was delicious. Service was excellent. The bad news: the air conditioner blows steadily in your face, the grouper "special" was so tough and fibrous we had to send it back, and the Elvis Cake dessert was an abomination.

Had dinner there a few nights ago and had dinner with my bride. The steak we had was very nice as was to puppy drum fish. Thought the chardonnay we order was a little overpriced at $ 12 per glass but it was the only selection off chardonnay by the glass on the menu. Given the size of their wine... More

I would be remiss if I didn't start by saying this: "Be prepared to spend some $$ if you intend to experience a full dining experience at the Chophouse" Having said that, I can't think of a better way to celebrate a special occasion than to treat someone to dinner here. From the time you walk in the door, you... More

For a place with the words chop house in it's name, I would have liked more non-seafood options on the menu. Nevertheless I ordered the filet mignon medium well, which usually means a beautiful cut gets ruined. Instead I was served the very best steak I've ever eaten. And I eat a lot of steak. I will happily return to... More

Everything we were served was great. We were served complimentary goat cheese crostini. The she crab soup was the best we've had. My husband had the smoked strip steak, which he very much enjoyed. But as good as the food was, the service was even better. Our waitress, Tosha, was delightful. She knew the menu perfectly and was very attentive... More

Beautiful atmosphere for my husband's special birthday celebration. Even with our groupon, it was pricy. Steak was very good, but everything else was so, so. Veggie selection was very limited, and with the price of steak, they were an added expense. Also, our drinks were more expensive than anywhere I've been recently. We won't be returning.

They steak was delicious and cooked to perfection. I would wager that it was the best steak I have had in Hampton Roads. The cocktails were tasty and the server was very nice but seemed a little nervous and it took a LONG time to get wine with dinner. The fish tacos were the biggest disappointment on the menu. Just...
