It's always busy, but over rated. Table was cluttered with a separate dish for each dinner item which is annoying. (Put it all on one plate!) They do have the best ribs around. Steaks are tasty too but mainly due to the heavy garlic, salt, butter they put on. Dinner salads have alway been really weak and disappointing for the... More

The Rib Eye we shared was cooked perfectly to order. Plates came out sizzling hot so meal stayed warm too. Service was good although the constant checking back was a bit much. Would come again given the chance.

My husband and I like to come here from time to time and we noticed we sat in the bar with our one year old because if she got noisy or cranky we didn't feel bad. Ryan is really great at making sure we get a fresh plate of apples and it seems whether we buy steaks for our whole... More

This is a popular local restaurant. They do have good steaks and ribs. The cedar plank salmon is hit or miss, which used to be my go to here. The last few times I ordered this it not only smelled super fishy but was burnt on the edges and close to raw in the middle. However, if you like oversized... More

Recommend with high marks. Not fancy but really good food. People were nice and treated us like locals. We had many meals here and can honestly say that all were great.

Rib and chop house has always ranked on the top of my list for Montana favorites. But on my last visit to Livingston it was mixed. We ate there three nights in a row. So that should tell you something. First night I had a basic cheeseburger and fries. Burger was great! But fries, well I probably could have counted... More

Nice atmosphere. Excellent service. The potato was enormous! The steak was served on a sizzling plate cooked as I requested. The meat was tender and flavorful.

Outstanding on all points. Martinis,gumbo,salad,steaks and sides. A great selection of wine by the glass. Too full to enjoy an undoubtedly fine dessert. Great service from our server Mark and those that assisted him. The managers made you feel at home too!

We travel through Livingston every year and do our best to time it so that we hit this chop house for dinner. The food is great. I am particularly fond of the pork chop. Best chop of my life and they have yet to disappoint me. Good beers on tap, good service. Better make reservations or you may not get... 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.
