“Excellent meal and service”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

We came for the food and left impressed with the entire evening. Service was excellent, great menu, good wine list, and excellent cooked steaks. The place is a bit loud for my taste but everything else made up for it. I'd put this up against some of the nicer steak joints in Chicago and the Midwest. An excellent showing for a (relatively) small town. I'll be back!

“A bad experience turned good”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

the food was good and the service was even better. We had reserved the chef's table a semi private dining area but when we got there there were already seating someone else because there'd been a failure in the reservation system. It could've been a frustrating and difficult time because we were entertaining clients but the manager managed to pull it out and we were put in the hands of a truly excellent service person. He and a good meal made a great deal of difference. It is certainly pricey at everything is priced à la carte.

“Overpriced and tough as a Bull”
Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

Went to the Chop House last night. I ordered the veal chop, and the remaining 3 at the table ordered the Filet. The steak was very good, but small portions for comparable prices at well known steak houses. The veal chop came and it was tough as hide, and I couldn't even cut the meat from the bone. The sinew which formed most of the cut, fought my knife like a gallant bull and won the fight.

The total bill came to over 325 dollars without tip. Overpriced and overrated.

“Smokey and average”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

Was there for a corporate dinner, approximately 20 people. Service from the entrance through leaving is excellent. Had the filet cooked medium. It was cooked well, but somewhat dry and not very flavorful. I'm not a foodie, but I would say it was under seasoned. I had much better a few weeks before at another steak house across the street. My dessert was great, as were the others at the table.

The biggest negative for me is the cigar smell. I noticed it right away walking in, and unfortunately the private group room we were in is downstairs where cigars are smoked in the open.

This is the place if you want overpriced, average food with great service and everyone to go home reeking of smoke.
