“Outstanding Food and Service”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We made reservations for a special evening and were not disappointed. The food is outstanding but we were even more impressed with the service. Reservations are really needed as it is a small place, but 4 people arrived without them and the manager was able to accommodate them. He stated that the next reservation was in one hour and he could provide them with a table and service "that would not seem rushed" but would be ready for the later reservation. Wow. That was impressive.
Our food was great and though I ordered the 2 lamb chop dinner, I received 3 because "they were small". We will sing the praises of Chop from here on out. Keep up the good work!

“What are people raving about?”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

My spouse and I dined at an early dinner hour because of a later engagement. The room is very small...which makes it all the more irritating for countless staffers going back and forth, collecting bar glasses, ice,bottles of wine etc...back and forth in your vision. If you are going to open for dinner,have your front bar set, up with all necessary items so that diners aren't constantly seeing traffic back and forth. You will have enough movement with wait service on diners. It does NOT make for a relaxing dining experience and you ARE attempting to make this a more upscale dining experience, aren't you? The meal was rushed and poorly paced as if the servers were told to load em up and ship them out...most annoying and somewhat insulting. All this can be fixed. The meal,however, was mediocre...the sort of food that a competent home cook could produce for Sunday dinner. The lamb chops, though small, were cooked correctly. The soup, although nicely flavored was lukewarm, salad was ordinary, potatoes were fine. But exceptional, creative,worthy of rave reviews...hardly. As Door County flourishes in an ever better economy, at this price point,patrons expect better.

“Trip Advisor...great recommendation”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We arrived at Sister Bay and immediately looked up TripAdvisor for a restaurant recommendation. the Chop was rated #1. It was an excellent choice. The food and drinks were excellent and Elli, our server, gave full descriptions of the specials, available wines and other choices. Elli was very engaging and represented the restaurant very well. While advertised as a steak house, its fish specials were superb. As this restaurant has limited seating, it would be best to call for a reservation.

“Don't want to share”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

We ate here for the first time and I hesitate to share because there are not many seats and .they may be full when I want to go back if I tell people about it. The steak was excellent but a little overcooked. They did offer to replace it but we thought the flavor was good enough to make up for being overdone. Next time we will order rare + because medium/pink didn't do it. Good salad and dessert also.
