We visit about once every two years as that is just enough time to forget the last meal there!!! Seriously, was not happy with the last experience as we brought our friends in for their birthdays. They love their beef and I was hoping for the best. Normally I go into great detail but with this review I believe it's... More

Being a chophouse, I would expect the cook to know how to properly cook a steak. Because many places overcook their steaks, while ordering, I specifically discussed and explained that I wanted Extra Rare and my wife wanted Medium Rare. What we got were two steaks both cooked Medium and you can't uncook a steak! The appetizers came out late... More

We heard good reviews about the steak here and we had to try it. We were not disappointed! Service was great and the steak was perfectly prepared.

I visit this place with family for our Xmas dinner. This place has nice ambience. That is probably the best thing about this restaurant. The service was not that good for the price. The waiter was slow taken our order and when the food arrived we had to send it back because it was cold. When they brought back the... More

River Stone Chophouse is one of my favorite locations. Great management, staff, and the Chefs are always at the top of their game. I have been a customer since 2009 and feel at home here. Fine dining and great staff--what a powerful combo.

Gathered with family to celebrate Christmas holidays. Restaurant was full, but we had no problem making reservations a day in advance. The staff were well trained and made for an enjoyable evening. The six of us each ordered a different meal, from seafood to steak. Everyone was pleased with their selection. The restaurant was full but I still expected the... More

Made reservations after looking completely through their web site. No dress code. After arriving in nice clothes I was informed that no hats were allowed in the dining room. This was a dress hat not some camo work cap. I said thanks but no thanks and left. On the way out I looked in at the bar. Much to my... More

Our meal was very good and our server was excellent. The three course meal offered had great choices. The only thing was that we were not allowed to do was to change out the vegetable or potato for a different vegetable or potato. The crab cake was delicious and the NY strip steak was properly done. All in all it... More

My wife and I double dated with her brother and his wife. We chose to go to the Chophouse for restaurant week. It was 3 courses of deliciousness. I had the NY Strip, my wife and her brother had the Delmonico, my sister in-law had the airline chicken. Cooked perfectly, seasoned well, great service. I would highly recommend the pecan... More
