“Too noisy - when live music in there it's unbearable”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

Ordered the tuna special - very disappointed. Tuna was not tender, we were expecting much better.
However, the scallop appetizer is great!
They also measure the wine - to us that's pretentious...the markup is incredible so hey, do like Catherine's or Old Erie and pour a generous glass.
It's a good spot - just room for improvement and hope to see changes made.

“Great Food and Beer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

This is my favorite restaurant in Chester. The variety of beers on tap is fantastic. I really like the buffalo wings and homemade potato chips. The atmosphere and service is great. The staff is very friendly and I recommend this restaurant to everybody.

“Mine..........all mine.......my precious.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012 via mobile

You know the old saying, "don't judge a book by it's cover?" This restaurant hiding in a Chester strip mall knocked us out one Saturday evening. Fabulous service, sublime food, wow!!!! We want to hide out in the kitchen and stay!

“Great Choice For Dinner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

This was a perfect choice for taking friends to for dinner. The atmosphere is nice. Dark setting with low lighting and candlelit tables. Service was perfect. Food was great. Had the sliced filet mignon sandwich. It was cooked perfectly and tasted even better with the au jus dip. Fairly priced entrees. We will return for more dinners at Christopher's!
