“Good Chop House experience”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

We enjoyed the chop house experience at this restaurant. We tend to frequent these kinds of restaurants and this one was consistent with what you would expect at this venue. Excellent quality food - the bone-in ribeye and prime rib were awesome - and the wine selection was very good. Service was courteous and knowledgeable. I know from other reviews that some consider the pacing of the meal slow, but I enjoy the deliberate pacing of a good 5-course meal so didn't mind at all. Pretty typical of others I have been at. The atmosphere was a little loud, but not unduly so. It didn't bother us, but would if I had wanted a more intimate meal. Overall, a place I would visit again if in the same area. By the way, for appetizers the smoked salmon was only OK but for sides the brussel sprouts were great. Pricing typical of chop houses in general - don't go if you aren't ready to drop some silver. Since we were there in December, nice view of the ice skating rink right outside.

Awesome meal before a great concert. Casual atmosphere and courteous wait staff. Food was a good variety and well prepared. Servers were friendly and on top of the game. Never felt hurried and made for an enjoyable evening. Burgers and steak this time there, outstanding!!

“Have the lobster corn chowder!!!”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

When we go to a place like this, we like to go all out. And let me tell you - it was well worth it! We went on a Friday, and they were featuring half price bottles of wine, so that was a nice surprise! We had the featured duck appetizer, which was fabulous. We followed that up with a cup of the lobster corn chowder each, and it was to die for. It had just the right amount of kick, and was just amazing. I'd go back for just that! But the rest of the meal did not let us down by any means! I had the 6oz filet mignon and the hubby had the aged Delmonico. We were both very pleased with our steaks. We also ordered bleu cheese potatoes, which I knew I wouldn't eat, but the hubby was suuuuper excited about those. We both had dessert (creme brulee and cheesecake) and a cocktail following dinner. Everything was absolutely fantastic. And our waiter was superb. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the menu. He gave a perfect wine suggestion. And we never felt rushed to make a decision or get moving. He gave us plenty of time between dishes to enjoy before stopping back by to see what else he could do for us. We loved the leisurely experience. We will be going back. Not often, because yes, you do drop a significant amount of money for dinner. But not an unreasonable amount, by any means. It was well worth it.

“Great steaks”
Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

Bass Street Chophouse is a nice part of the QCA food scene. The dry aged steaks were delightful. They were very well prepared. I like mine "black and blue" and it was perfect. The comprehensive Scotch whiskey list was a real treat. I don't know if anyone has a bigger wine list in town.

Only thing stopping a five star review is a couple of service bobbles. It took a long time to get our first round of drinks (really long). The real knock was getting our appetizer and salad at the same time. Not really a good thing.

We will probably go back.

“Better second time”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

We wanted to go here for a long time because people had raved about it. Our first Name a couple of months ago was really not impressive. We had gone with friends who had moved back to the area. Before a recent trip out of town we stayed in Moline the night before our flight. This time the meal was out standing. Service was excellent and the English cut of the Prime Rib, you could've cut with a butter knife. The only downside was I couldn't finish it and had no way to take it with me. Would definitely go back.
