We came here for a birthday dinner. The place was very busy and had a fun atmosphere. I ordered a half rack of ribs and was not impressed. It was a very small portion and mediocre. Other plates were better portions. Staff was super nice.

We booked a reservation at the Rib and Chop House during a very busy time of year, bringing along a group of friends who had never been there. For the first time in many visits to the Chop House we were disappointed. Our group's table was in a thoroughfare for both customers and wait staff, the food was slow, the... More

No complaints about my steak, it's the same chain as Wyoming s Rib & Chop in Cody. I will give the air flown Alaska salmon a miss as Montana is still cowboy country where i expect beef to be beef. Service at the bar is not the best tonite as i was served by a rookie bartender. Could not get... More

We have made many trips to this restaurant for special occasions and as a treat for out of town guests. Normally we encounter excellent service and superb food. However, in late September we brought two good friends from out of state and were disappointed with the whole experience. Everything was a little off that night. Service was good – but... More

Great dining experience if you don't mind a "little" noise. Food was super, prices average, atmosphere great. It's not for someone looking for a quiet candle light dinner.

This place has wonderful ribs! We were staying overnight and this looked like the best place in town to eat and I think it was! Top notch restaurant! Very busy so make a reservation. Service was very professional, crab cake appetizer was delicious and we chose squash casserole and garlic mashed potatoes as our sides which were to die for!... More

Place was packed, once we got there we waited to get a seat at the bar. Had a great Cocktail, our bartender was new and he did a great job! I believe his name was Brad. It was very loud in the place but it was a fun loud. Football games were on the big screens and got to visit... More

Been coming here for years but something has changed and likely won't return! The service is terrible, the food is just okay and the menu changed while prices went up. Management can't seem to keep good staff as turnover is high. During our visit we waited at least 15 minutes to get a drink at our table. The servers don't... More

Located in the heart of Southwestern Montana, the Livingston location was the original Chop House that began May 22, 2001. In 2004 we relocated a few blocks down from the original location to an old railroad receiving warehouse just a few feet away from the main line of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad now known as Montana Rail Link. The food is fun, the service is great and you will leave knowing you did't just have dinner, but a dining experience.
