Description: THE VALLEY'S FAVORITE SINCE 1992! Our Motto: Fresh.California. Happy! Born out of our love of food and hospitality, Kaiser Grille has been synonymous with quality and value for over twenty years in the Coachella Valley. Founded by Kaiser Morcus in 1992, Kaiser Grille quickly became a hotspot for locals and visitors alike. After a ten year hibernation in Palm Desert, his son, Eric is taking the helm in his new restaurant. We are located at the former Chop House location in Palm Desert. Fresh from a remodel and menu change, we are located just a few blocks away from where it all began over twenty years ago. Yet, as we all get better with age, we hope that this time of rest has given us more passion and inspiration to provide more enjoyment for your dining experience.

We always go back for the steak, prepared to perfection. But, don't overlook all their other options.
Rack of Lamb, Prime Rib and some of the best seafood in the desert. The creamed spinach is one of our favorite sides, but they are all good and you can order a large or single serving. The atmosphere is warm and friendly, a great place for a special occasion. We suggest a reservation because they do get busy and we wouldn't want you disappointed. Excellent wine list by the glass or bottle. We love the fact that the staff never rushes you so, sit back and enjoy the evening and the food.

On a recent vacation in Palm Desert, the concierge at our hotel recommended the Chop House. We were looking for a steak house dinner and since we don't do steak house as often as other options, we relied on the concierge for help. The quality of the food and service were on par with other chain steakhouses that are much more costly. The quality of my filet mignon was as good as I have ever had. It was served exactly as ordered and the flavor was excellent. A decent size wine list included both reasonablly priced and higher end selections. The staff was friendly and helpful and the interior of the restaurant is comfortable.
Well worth a try if you want a good quality steak dinner without mortgaging the house.

We went to the chop house on a Saturday night. We were seated immediately. Reservations were easy to make via leaving a message. The service and food was excellent. My food was hot we'll prepared and the presentation was nice. The food arrives on a staggered basis so that you are not rushed. The wine list has many great wines. We enjoyed ours. It was amusing that the loud people next to us did not enjoy their meal. I over heard them talking before the meal with disparaging remarks about the restaurants. They also appeared to have too much alcohol before coming to the restaurant. They were rude to the waiter but he handled it well. As a culinary chef and faculty member I felt his pain. The restaurant and meal was excellent. The people friendly and the valet parking a nice touch. We will return at sometime.thank you hcrottler@comcast.net

My wife and I dine out quite frequently and we just had one of the best experiences ever. We have dined at both Chop Houses but this time was exceptional. It started out by the hostess greeting us with a big smile and a big welcome to the Chop House. From there it only got better. Our server, Paul, greeted us, took our drink order, and then told us about the chef specials. We ended up getting a filet and a new york steak. Both were cooked to perfection and the taste was great. Once dinner was served, the manager, Berry, came over to introduce himself and see how our dinner was. He stayed and talked to us for about 3 minutes making sure everythinig was good with our dinner. Then a few minutes later Paul came back and checked on us as well. We felt like VIPs until I noticed that they did this with every table in the restaurant. We finished our dinner and had the chocolate lava cake that Paul suggested and it was delicous. Upon leaving, we were thanked by Paul, Berry, and the hostess. We have since told several of our friends and neighbors about our dinner. We will definitely be back soon.
