“Best in Whole Area”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

We've lived in Michigan for nine years. We've gone to many of the best restaurants in Southeast Michigan, but this was our first trip to The Chop House. Part of the reason was the cost. The other reason was that we had no idea the whole experience would be as superlative as it was.

Since we'd waited for a special occasion to visit the Chop House, we wanted to be certain to enjoy the full effect. We had some of the specially blended Woodford Reserve bourbon and that was the excellent start to the evening. I especially appreciated their menu on an iPad. You can see the food and it explains how it's prepared, etc. It really makes you feel secure that you are ordering what you really want.

The service at The Chop House is the most attentive (without being intrusive) we've experienced. We really felt valued. Our waiter made us so comfortable and even let me in on the secret that the fellow at a table across the way was going to propose. How they managed to get everyone in on the surprise was amazing and when he dropped to one knee, his (now) fiance was floored. You could have heard a pin drop. The applause when she said yes was terrific. The servers were all amazing. For example, when our entrees came out, it was choreographed that my husband and I had our plates meet the table in front of us at the exact same time.

The food - well, it's the best I've had - probably ever. There's a whole lot of it, too! They pride themselves on their quality, but they don't skimp. Everything from the crab cake appetizer to the dessert. All meticulously prepared and presented. It's, simply, the complete package!

We WILL be back.

“Best of AA”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

The Chop House in Ann Arbor is a reliable favorite for everyone. You will get what you pay for with every dish, and the large price tags are worth it. Although every dish I have had there has been exceptional, I highly recommend you listen carefully to their special meat offerings and select one from them, they are well worth it. Like many other Main Street restaurants, you can get a big discount on your birthday. This is a beautiful and elegant dining experience, and great for a romantic date or a celebration. The service is always excellent and portions are generous. Well worth it for a special occasion!

“Best filet I've ever had!”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

Bone in Filet mignon was spectacular and my wife loved the lamb chops. Very expensive, but worth it!
