This restaurant, sports bar combination has a large dining room separate from a large bar with multiple televisions. The dining room areas are reasonably quiet. The food is excellent and very well prepared although the kitchen is a bit slow. The service is competent. The wine list is small but good and reasonably priced. The daily specials include lobster, prime rib, and a variety of other dishes all of which have been excellent. I particularly enjoy their Filet Mignon ala Mare which has a large filet with shrimp and scallops in an excellent sauce for under $25. All main dishes include soup or salad. Their burger menu is large and the burgers are great. On our recent visit, my son had the prime rib and it was wonderful. A generous cut was well prepared and under $20. Their selection of beers is great and their are daily specials. Their Sangria was well made, full of fruit and very tasty. I heartily recommend this restaurant as appropriate for groups, families and couples.

When entering the chapter house restaurant there are ashtrays outside the entrance doors, these ashtrays are burning from uncrushed cigarettes. This acts as an air fresher upon entering the restaurant.

When you do enter you are greeted by two hostesses very nice and very friendly. In our case there was a bit of a wait 15 minutes or so. The restaurant seemed busy, but more on this later.

When the two of us sat down we decided to each order a specialty burger. I ordered the Wisconsin whipped cheese burger and my fiancée ordered the cucumber burger. We also ordered onion rings. After one half hour our meal came. The whipped cheese on my Wisconsin burger was cold, so was the bun, the burger was luke warm. The cucumber burger had huge chunks of cucumber more for a salad than a sandwich. Why offer specialty burgers if you are not going to take the care to make them special? By the way the burgers were served with potato chips, really after charging $9.00. ? The onion rings were served cold and greasy.

I mentioned earlier the restaurant seemed busy, well we waited half hour and others waited even longer for there meal, most ordered hamburgers.

Our waitress did not offer anything to us to make up for the bad service. When we left the resturant there was a sign that said celebrating 25 years. Hmmm of what mediocrity?

So to sum it up if burning ashtrays, slow service and cold food delight you than chapter house is for you.

Great place for a burger and a beer. You must have the whipped cheddar sauce. It is great. Sandwiches are good. Dinners are plentiful. Service is very good and polite. Try it!

The food is good, and the people there are really nice! The best bang for your buck is the extensive Burger menu!
