We had a post-OU graduation party/lunch here and really enjoyed it. The service is excellent as is the food. Prices aren't bad either.

Always great food & decent prices. Happy hour has a lot to choose from as far as food and drink specials. It was much better when the manager Tim was there; but still a nice atmosphere.

I took my daughter to Rochester chop House for her birthday dinner. Because the portions are quite large, we actually split a filet dinner. Our server Jeremy was a wonderful server, pleasant, friendly, and professional. Refills were promptly made. The filet was cooked perfectly. I...More

We went for a Valentines Day celebration, and were not disappointing. It's a little pricey, and mostly loud, but worth a visit.
