Great food and service. Ordered Expresso Martinis to cap off a wonderful birthday dinner - poor mixology on the drinks - very disappointed / asked to speak to the manager - who was very rude to us - couldn’t be bothered hearing our feedback -...destroyed the evening. Very expensive evening - left us with bad vibes only for the management — won’t return.More

Thank you Jim for sharing your side of the story. Please allow me to explain the restaurant's side. Our bartenders do indeed make a great Espresso Martini and it is unfortunate that you did not feel the same way. We understand tastes vary from person...More

After our second failed experience at Ruth’s Chris, we decided to give Chops a try. Even though we were a bit hesitant based on some of the reviews, we are so glad we gave them a chance! Their service was spectacular! From the front of...the house, to our server Hayden, to the food runners, there was absolutely no complaint whatsoever. The steaks were perfectly cooked and seasoned, the presentation was just as expected, and their sides were delicious!! No other place to find cauliflower smash, or corn creme brûlée... all employees were masked, and though their carpet could use a little TLC, especially heading toward the restrooms, we really enjoyed the atmosphere this place has to offer. We will definitely return!More

Had dinner there last night and I cannot express what a major disappointment this meal and service was. I found it funny that you are seated at a table with linen table clothes covered up by paper over the top. $75.00 for an entree and...the waiter is not trained well enough to refill drinks. After stopping by the table three times saying he will be back with bread, I asked him if he did not feel he needed someone else to handle our table as I still sat there without a drink and we had been seated 22 minutes. The food was average at best. I ordered the mashed potatoes they literally were a small boat floating in butter with an ice cream scoop of mash potatoes. We laughed at the pretend like upper restaurant this place tries to make itself out to be. The quality of the steaks were average to any average scale restaurant (Outback, etc) . We decided when the service was so incredible horrible that we would never return back here - Ruth's Chris and this place are not even in the same ballpark. Talking about ballpark, the first basket of bread was harder than a baseball and he much later returned with a basket of fresh bread and said the last was old bread. Nice. The bacon appetizer is actually a square of fat which we discovered in our mouth and with a tiny bit of ham meat on it. The french fries were good. That they got right. I found it interesting that the host came to selective tables to see how their meal was but anyone that our waiter was servicing did not go to that table. Was this a judgmental call or did he already know this particular later should never be waiting alone??? Two words: Ruth's ChrisMore

First visit for special occasion. For a “chops” restaurant, we were not impressed with the quality of the meat. It was however cooked to order. But they ran out of prime rib. The sides were just average, baked potato was charred on the outside. Service...was good and atmosphere nice. Excellent wine list.More

Thank you for dining with us at Chops. Our Prime Rib is made daily and we never serve left overs from the previous day. In order to do this, the Chefs must predict how much to cook each day and inevitability there will be days...More

Chop’s has always been one of my favorite places to meet up with my mom after work for drinks and appetizers. We love sitting at the bar. Food and service were exceptional! The jumbo lump crab and lobster cake is a favorite of ours!

In town looking for the weekend and looking for a nice place for dinner. Found Chops on trip advisor and want to thank all the great reviews because we choose to dine here and it did not disappointing! Don was a fabulous waiter and explained...all the wonderful steak options to my husband and then seafood for me. My husband went with the 22ounce bone in rib eye with delicious onion rings and a side of amazing sweet fries. I had the cedar plank salmon with spinach and cauliflower mash, OMG 😋 I seriously cleaned my plate! Also want to add that the bread and olive oil with butter was spot on. Also have to say that they had a great wine selection and we enjoyed on of our favorite Frank Family Cabernet. Thank you for wonderful service and amazing food. We will for sure be back next time we are in town!!More

This was our first visit, by will not be our last. We were here as guests of a company we do business with, so I can’t comment on prices, but the food was excellent. I had a small filet and my wife chose grouper. Both...were very good. The salads were huge, and fresh, and desert(key lime pie) was to die for and twice as large as a desert should be. Their wine list was first rate and I enjoyed a frosty craft wheat beer. Our servers were excellent and prompt and got things right the first time...well done!More
