Located off Arroyo Parkway in Pasadena, this is a high end steakhouse. The Chop House serves quality beef prepared as you like it. They also have an extensive wine list. It is both expensive but very good. Valet parking is available.

Not really! California casual is the order of the day. Dress comfortably but warmly because of the air conditioning, but jackets are not required!

The strikingly handsome restaurant exudes a youthful energy that gives the time-honored dining concept universal appeal.
