A great restaurant starts with great food. And Chophouse passes this test with flying colors. Everything we ordered was just wonderful. And they do have some dishes that are not standard on restaurant menus. But a great restaurant also has wonderful service and Chophouse servers and other personnel treated us in a wonderful manner. It was clear they were to serve us and it is not a bad thing to feel pampered once in a while. Our server Val took great care of us. The Chophouse can stand up with the best of restaurants one can find in Chicago, San Francisco, or New York or other big cities. I hope they keep maintaining their quality.

This was the second time we've been to the Chop House in GR. The first time was amazing. This time we felt as if we were being rushed out the door from the time we sat down. We ordered drinks with the waiter hovering as we decided on wine. Then he immediately asked about salad soup and appetizers. We asked for a minute to decide and he was back in 30 seconds wanting to know what we decided. He tried to get us to order our entrée at that time and we asked for a bit of time. He was right back again in 30 seconds. The entrée was delivered as the appetizer was removed and even with dessert the entire experience was over in one hour. We were never asked if we'd like coffee. Our bill was delivered to our table before the dessert was delivered. The appetizer was great. The asparagus were like rocks and tasteless. I wanted a filet medium rare but he waiter said it would be better medium as the middle would still be red and warm if medium. I got medium and it was way overdone for my taste. I'd get medium rare and not listen next time. Crème Brulee was awesome. Wine was excellent but waiter was in too big of a hurry to ask if I wanted more. With reservation at 6:30 I suppose the waiter wanted to turn the table but a customer was lost in the process.

We dined for a birthday celebration! \nThe appetizer (crab and lobster cakes) a bit overdone.\nThe wedge salad was excellent as was the lobster bisque. There was a nice assortment of breads. \nService throughout the evening was excellent!\nThe entree selections (filet of beef) were delicious although a bit more rare than medium rare. The Bernaise sauce was a nice addition. The mushrooms were very good.

My husband and I do not get out much and twice a year we look forward to spending our birthdays at chop house. Normally it's a wonderful experience however this pass time wasn't as expected. I ordered the Beef Wellington as done every other time. After returning home that evening, within a couple of hours I became pretty sick. I had not eaten before so think possible food poisoning or the steak may not have been cooked enough. By morning I was OK but definitely not how I wanted to spend my birthday.

Our permanent home is in Savannah, Georgia and we also have a condo in downtown GR, and the Chop House is our 'go to' place for dinners on special occasions as well as a few other times a year. The food is outstanding, and our service on the 20th was just sensational. Our server carefully recommended wines for us and he is extremely knowledgeable. For any steak lovers visiting Grand Rapids, head across the street to Chop House from Ruth's Chris, and you will not be disappointed.

We have typically dined on average at the Chop House 3-4 times per year. It was always a 'treat' to look forward to. However, the last experience may be our last. The service was rushed and made us feel as if we were being hurried. I felt our server was in favor of rushing us out of there. He asked me if I was still working on my cocktail, in which I said I was, as it was half full yet. I kid you not, literally 2-3 minutes later, as I was conversing with my party, the server returned to grab my drink. This time he didnt bother asking if I was finished. He also, grabbed the bread and I asked if I could keep it to finish. His response was, 'trust me, you wont even miss it'. Granted, our food was quickly presented to our table, but I did want the bread too. Then to end our dining experience, he picked up my plate that I still had 1/4 of my filet left on it. This time, I did call him back as I wanted to take the leftover scraps to my dog. Pretty embarrasing position to call back the server for my plate that I wasnt finished with. I felt like the service was not worth putting up with even if the food is top notch. Unfortunately, our dining experience was disappointing and not the 'treat' it used to be.

My first Visit to The Chop House was 1/21/17. I was really excited to try it after all the hype that I heard. After all, its supposedly one of Grand Rapids best steak houses. In a nut shell I was quite disappointed. My friends filet was over, my veggies were amazingly bland, and the Wellington was not something I'd ever order again or recommend to anyone. Ruth's Chris is across the street and everything was better there excluding noise level. \n\nBest wishes!

We dined December 29th with my son and family who were visiting from out of state. All service was top notch which I have come to know from the Chop House. The four of us had a great time, our waiter was superb (Travis) and the food was incredible as always. We had several appetizers, great wine, and for the first time in over 20 visits, I tried something other then the filet mignon... Travis suggested we try the bone-in filet and it was delicious! The sea bass and diver scallops are something everyone should try too! And, the Creme Brulee is the best anywhere. \n\nTravis was very attentive, friendly and courteous and easily picked up the tempo of the table. Everything was prepared perfectly, presented and served in 'unison' and we laughed and had the best of nights. No matter how good the food is, the server is what makes or breaks the night. Chophouse is our very favorite place to dine or to celebrate special occasions, and has been our choice for years. We even chose it over the 1913 Room at the Amway Grand when it was in business across the street.

Been many times; great service but not this time. Waiter preoccupied and non-attentive. Told him it was my cousin's birthday upon arrival and his response was 'you better have ID and be able to prove it'. Never said Happy Birthday. I ordered a rarer filet but the one I was served was thin, and my cousin who orders medium well had a thick filet, so we asked if perhaps they got them mixed up. Waiter insisted they were fine, and I again asked if they got mixed up as rare is usually thicker, and then he ordered us to cut it down the middle to look. We really didn't want to cut them down the middle as they cool off faster, but he stood there and repeated that we needed to cut it down the middle, which we did, and as we thought, steaks had been served to us wrong so we swapped. \n\nPotato came, but no vegetable, so asked waiter and he said we didn't order it. We got it at end of meal, and he didn't charge, but was too late to eat it at that point. Waiter assumed we were done and ready to check us out, but we told him we were having desert. Again, he seemed in quite a hurry; maybe he was supposed to get off soon and was stuck serving us? I said we would be having our favorite, the creme brulee. He only brings one... we asked about the other and he said 'you just said 'we are having the creme brulee, so I thought you were sharing'. So we shared.\n\nHe was not mean, he just seemed like he was so preeoccuped that he could not get our orders straight, make them good, check on us, and seemed to rush us.\n\nWe left about a 50% tip regardless since one meal was free and we figured he had to share with the other staff assisting and did not want to short them. Hope we never get this waiter again.

We come multiple times a year so we have a great base line to critic our experience. Service was amazing as always. I am disappointed because our reservations had a specific request not to be seated by the stairs because it is always a high traffic area and I was going to tell my husband I was pregnant. So where did we get seated? The table between the stairs and the walkway to the stairs. Very non private. Probably the most exposed table possible. So I waited to tell him because it was hard for me to hear him talk and I didn't want to miss a minute of his reaction. Food was amazing (fillet, crab cakes, lobster bisque, crab bites, calliflower, cream brulee) with the exception of the scallops, Moroccan shrimp and bread basket. I LOVE their scallops but this time they were totally over salted, to the point my tongue curled. The shrimp was delish but the bread it came on was so hard I could barely cut it. Literally had to use my muscles to cut it in half. We don't come for the bread basket but they have this amazing bread with fruit in it so we usually have them bring it to the table. This time their was only 2. Types of bread white and wheat. No fruit bread and no crackers. We were a little disappointed but its only bread. So it was good but not great. Hoping for a better experience next time. We would never give Chop House up because 90% of the food is to die for. :)

Unfortunately our second experience at the Chop House wasn't as great as the first. The entres we selected - were not available. Our waiter forgot to tell us. The timing of us receiving the food was off - we had the smallest pieces of bread I have ever seen. When we couldn't get the ribeye we were charged extra for our meal. My husband ordered his meat between medium to medium well - it was served rare and had to be taken back to be cooked. Unfortunately what we thought would be another awesome meal - wasn't. It is too bad.

Chop House is very nice for special Occasions however; be prepared-for the prices. Everything is alacart, steaks are very expensive. Don't expect to spend less than $180.00 for a dinner for 2. Example: a glass of wine $11.95. This from a the same bottle/brand I can buy at Meijer for $19.00. Not criticising. Just a fact!

Appetizers and sides were delicious and service was amazing. But Chop House is known as good for steaks. Both my husband and my steaks were not cooked right. He ordered medium and was medium rare after server confirmed how medium was supposed to be cooked. I ordered medium well, server stated pink throughout which was good with me. My steak was well and super dry. So if going for steaks, skip steaks and get appetizers and sides.

Disappointing visit. I special ordered a cake for my sister's 60th birthday a week in advance and they dropped the ball. I even called the morning of our visit and they could not confirm the cake was made. Instead, they gave us a cheesecake as an afterthought with messy writing and they charged me $45 for it, twice as much what the cake would have cost me. After spending $450 on dinner, I expected better service than this. I sent the restaurant a message to complain but I have yet to be contacted by anyone.

Went for our anniversary. We had a wedge salad w/ blue cheese which was excellent and a house salad w/vinaigrette. We both had steak (strip and au poivre)and were very happy with the taste and the preparation. Au Gratin potatoes were excellent, hot and tasty along with the popular creamed corn. Finished with a cold chocolate cake. Not to memorable. Will go with something else next time.\nService is always top shelf. Prices are also top shelf. Plan on dropping over $100 per person plus parking. I guess that is why we don't return too often.

3rd time at the Chop House. 1st time was amazing. this last time was not impressed at all\n We get there at 8 on sat night. order drinks. then 15 mins later order dinner.. soup comes out immediately. 72 mins later our steaks come out it was 9:27 when we got our entrées.. i dont mind waiting 30-45 mins. but over a hour is ridiculous. especially at a restaurant of this caliber and price. \n\nI've been in the restaurant biz for over 25 years and if something like this ever happened dinner was discounted or comped completely.\n\nNeedless to say we will.never reture to this establishment. Thank goodness for an abundant selection in west Michigan.

We went here to celebrate my birthday before going to the theater on a Saturday evening. The place seems to book up fast. The ambiance and service are both top notch. The electronic menu is wonderful and even includes pictures of most of the food items. \n\nPortion sizes are generous, the shareable side dishes are probably good for four to six depending on appetites. Its an upscale steakhouse, so expect to spend quite a bit. The food wasn't spectacular for the price, but its a nice way to treat yourself or a business guest.\n\nI would recommend and go there again.

This was my first time at this restaurant and now I can say 2 things. 1 - I can cross it off my list because I don't need to go back there. And, 2 - I'm just glad we were there on a birthday so we got 1/2 off our check. I've never had bland French Onion Soup before, but, this was. I've not experienced being unable to cut asparagus with a knife before, but, now I have. And, both of our entrees were served to us cold. Must just be that my expectations were too high.

We went to a different restaurant for our Anniversary and were very disappointed. So we wanted a redo! We decided to do the Chop House. WE were not disappointed! The service was outstanding. Very friendly and personable. Our food was delicious and cooked to perfection. My filet cut like butter! Great selection of wine as well. Only thing that wasn't the best was going downstairs to the cigar bar for dessert. I don't think our server realized that they had rearranged the tables, and there wasn't a good spot for 2 people to sit. We were off to the side in living room type chairs and a small table....not easy to eat at and we kinda felt in the way. But again, the staff was very helpful and friendly and our desserts were fabulous. So it wasn't a big deal!

We returned to the Chop House recently, having not visited for the past two or three years. We were most impressed by the friendly, professional service and attention to the smallest detail. The menus (on tablets) are fun, and display photos of each item, which is very helpful. Make sure you look at the photo and description, because some entrees come with sides, while others do not, and it may influence your decision to order the a la carte side dishes. The portions are large; it's a good idea to ask your server if something should be shared. All of our entrees (filet, veal chop, strip steak) were cooked perfectly as requested. I highly recommend the grilled romaine salad (good to split between two people). The wines by the glass are somewhat expensive, and the collection of white wines by the glass is a little limited. Dessert selection is outstanding. The only thing keeping me from going right back is that it is quite expensive. They have to pay for all those servers somehow!

The food was *so* bland. We went for my birthday and got 50% off the check. I got Beef Wellington and Creamed Kale/Spinach and he got a bone-in ribeye and baked potato. The Beef Wellington was so bland that I didn't finish it (how is it possible to make a bland beef Wellington?). The creamed spinach had more cream than contents - I had to go fishing around to find some spinach or kale. The ribeye was very plain. It had a good beef flavor, but there didn't seem to be any seasonings at all. The exception was the dessert. The Oreo creme brûlée cheesecake was delicious and only $8 regular price. We won't be back for the food, even if 50% off. I can cook better at home for less than $80.

Since we were eating late, my husband and I split the meal and it was enough. We topped off our meal with a dense chocolate cake - a small portion so it was perfect for dessert. \n\nI would recommend the Chophouse for a special occasion or a place to go for a romantic evening and dinner where you want to enjoy the experience and be able to talk without distractions.

We came for dinner. They sat us next to the server station outside the kitchen. A classy restaurant such as this should not have any tables in such a bad spot.\nThe food was good. The Steak Au Poivre was tender and well-trimmed, but not enough sauce. The Sautéed Spinach was delicious. Service was attentive with water quickly refilled. I will say that the way the servers put down the plates in front of us for each course was strange. They would look at each other, nod at each other, and place the plates down in synch, like they do on Downton Abbey.\nThe real disappointment and what prevented me from giving this restaurant a higher rating was their dessert and cigar lounge. Apparently, they use it for private functions as well so if there is a private party in there, smoking is not allowed. They said smoking can commence after 10pm, but then said that it can't commence until the private party leaves, which can be way after 10pm. They suggested we call ahead whenever we want to smoke cigars to see if there is a private function going on that night, but that is just too unpredictable for my liking. I rate the lounge as a fail and I do not recommend people come here for cigars.

We also had mashed potatoes, Mac n cheese, and asparagus. All of our food was devoid of favor. The scallops were mushy as well as the bacon in the smashed potatoes my wife received. The steak had the blandest cheese on top that did not complement the steak. The sauce for the steak was unbalanced and only tasted bitter. All of our food was in desperate need of salt. The smashed potatoes bland no butter no creaminess just unpleasant to eat. The macaroni noodles and the sauce had not taste. If the asparagus didn't have parmesan cheese on top they would been an under cooked messed but at least the cheese gave a tiny bit of flavor. \n\nThe only positives were good service and an excellent dessert, creme brûlée cheesecake. A definite waste of $250 last night. We would have been better off getting fast food somewhere. Overall the worst meal we've every head at a fine dinning establishment.

I have been to many steak houses and this is one of the better ones I have been to. Great selection and the menu is a la carte as many higher end steakhouses are. Steak was cooked perfectly with fantastic flavor and texture. The 2 sides we split were the creamed corn and mac n cheese and both were great. Nice crunch of the breaded topping on the mac and some of the better creamed corn I have had (I'm admittedly not a creamed corn fan). Service was very good and items were brought out nicely timed.

I chopped 1 star off The Chop House and I will tell you why. First the positives; beautiful decor, incredible service and truly very good food. Why remove a star, you ask?\n\nThere was nothing special about the Caesar salad but that isn't the reason. The menu states that the Cowboy Ribeye is 22oz to 24oz. The steak was beautiful when it came to the table, cooked perfectly and and seasoned quite nicely. However, there was a huge amount of fat on the steak. So including bone and fat, I might have had about 10oz of beef.\n\nI eat at a lot of great steak places and I would go back to The Chop House. I would probably not order the Ribeye but would opt for the NY strip instead because at least I would not encounter an unknown quantity of fat.

The steaks (wet-aged, not dry aged) were very good, large, and the side dishes (vegetables or potatoes for a separate charge) were tasty and the ortions large enough to share.

If I am to be totally honest, I was really disappointed with The Chop House overall. I was looking forward to a high end dinner with my husband, as we do not get a chance to do that very often, and It started off great! The service was wonderful, the menu was impressive, and the prices were about what we expected. However, when our food came, we were seriously disappointed. He ordered the venison, and it was good, but by NO means was it worth what we paid for it. I ordered the swordfish, and it was very dry and very bland for being blackened. We ordered the garlic spinach as a side, and it was so salty, we couldn't even eat it. The best part of the whole meal was the Creme brûlée and the coffee. Sad, because We spent over $150 for a meal we could have had elsewhere for about half that price and it would have been just as good or better.

We had special friends in from Santa Fe, NM; and wanted to introduce them to one of the best restaurants that we have in Grand Rapids, MI. Our evening stated off on the wrong foot when our wives went in ahead of us as we parked the car, and were seated at a very small table for four against a very large concrete post besides the kitchen. Clearly this is the the worst table in the restaurant. After realizing that other tables and booths appeared to be available, I asked if we could be reseated. InitiallyI was refused due to them being reserved; however after a few minutes while we were being served our drinks they advised that we could be moved to a great booth that was now automatically not reserved. We were pleased. We had made reservations for the evening and expected better treatment. Once seated we were served our wine, and during the delivery of bread, the waiter knocked off the bottle of wine and its marble cooler totally off the table hitting our guest's foot and spilling wine everywhere. An apology was granted and ultimately we were given credit for a half of a bottle of wine. This was like an insult and any first class restaurant would normally have credited the whole bottle of wine and been a whole lot more concerned if anyone had been injured. The rest of our meal went well, albeit the occasions a bit tainted. This was a horrible introduction for of our world traveled guests to the Grand Rapids Chop House. This is very disappointing and embarrassing as we have frequented the restaurant several times in the past.

Finally for a steak restaurant they do not know how to cook a filet. Everyone ordered a different temp from medium rare to medium well and EVERY steak came out very rare! Staff acted surprised! Huh? My medium was so rare that it was cold and blue in the center. Like cutting raw meat. Add to all this a $100++ pp, and I just don't understand the popularity.

My wife and I had dinner at the Chop House and were looking forward to it as the reviews online had it rated high. The atmosphere is very nice, dimly lit, great ambience. The service was excellent as well. Attentive to our needs and extremely professional. That's where the positive review ends however. The food was sub par for what was a $250.00 dinner for two. Our oysters on the half shell tasted extremely fishy and had sand in them as well. Not a great way to start. My biggest reason for going was the meat so I ordered the Cowboy Steak ($50.00 something) as it is the fattiest and one of the tastiest bone-ins they have. When I ate it however the flavor was bland. I should preface that I LOVE steak and have eaten at many high end restaurants that showcase that as one of their features. I found Ruth Chris next door to have a better steak than Chop House. If the restaurant were less money I would probably go back to give it a second try. Unfortunately it is not so I will not be coming back.

We have dined here multiple times and I'm always impressed with the preparation of the Filet Mignon. From start to finish, the experience was as expected. My only complaint is the the special 'presentation' of the food (all dishes lowered/served at the same time). Drinks were topped off routinely. I've definitely had better for less $$, but it was a special occasion and the requested destination.

The crew at the chop house never ceases to amaze me! I went here with my realtor and we were both blown away by the food. It's always soo Delicious. My realtor couldn't stop raving about the food between bits. I had the beef wellington which was absolutely exquisite.

Let me start out by saying that the service was excellent! Our waiter, Matthew, i believe, was great! I've just never been wowed by the food. There are a lot of people in town who love Chop House, so you should take my review with a grain of salt. I also don't eat steak anymore, and didn't personally order it at this dinner. I had the crab cakes for my meal and thought they were average. The sides and veggies were all very good and fresh. Wine list is really nice....options at many price levels. We didn't go downstairs for this dinner, but the cigar lounge is a nice change of pace and something a little different if you're looking for something unique to do in GR.

I made reservations for my husband's birthday about 6 weeks in advance and when we arrived, we were put at a table right next to the walkway to the bathroom and then kitchen. People were CONSTANTLY rushing by and servers were abruptly dropping plates on the table behind my chair (setup table?). This really killed the mood. We wanted to move seats, but by the time the waitstaff got to our table, there weren't any options.\n\nOverall steaks were cooked well, sides were great - but there was something off in the Sidecar cocktail. This is our favorite beverage in Detroit bars, and the ratio was completely off. \n\nIf we had a better table, we would have enjoyed our experience much more. We were happy to see a nice restaurant in GR that offered great food and a fine dining experience - something we missed from the Metro Detroit scene.

Waiter made note of the birthday, chef personalized our dessert, and the 50% off the entire bill was great. Big thanks to the Chop House for making this a special experience for us. Can't give this a high enough review.\n\nFood review:\n We got a Ceasar Salad, Lobster Bisque Soup, Baked MacnCheese, Swordfish steak, NY Strip Streak, and a Creme Brulee Cheesecake.

Overall, my biggest issue has been with the front of the house. The last two times I made reservations through Open Table, my party has been shuffled off to the side and told to enjoy a cocktail. As with most people I enjoy a good cocktail, however, in each instance we had to wait 35-40 minutes to be seated. This past Saturday was not overwhelming busy or I would have understood the wait. If I had not been proactive and complained, my wife would have had to wait longer for her birthday meal. What was equally annoying was to witness groups of 4 who had later reservations being seated before my group of 3. In the end it all worked out and the Manager resolved the issue only because I brought it to his attention.

The Chop House is not what it use to be. Went there with reservations on a Friday evening. We were seated in perhaps the worst location of the restaurant. Right above the stairs that lead to the cigar bar downstairs-a definite 'high traffic' area all evening long. Ordered an expensive bottle of wine (which was wonderful)-disappointed in our server that other than the 'first' pour, she never returned to our table to check on it or to top off our glasses. Our steaks (Filet) were ordered medium and arrived medium rare (total red center). We ate around the outside and took the rest home to finish on the grill. The Lobster Bisque was fantastic. All in all food was good-just not the memorable evening that dining at the Chop House always was before.

Clearly it was busy due to ArtPrize, so the Cigar Lounge was temporarily set-up as an overflow / extension of the dining room. What I had anticipated would be a nice dinner with an out-of-town guest in their very comfortable main dining room was relegated to a table in the cigar basement with a clear view and experience of all the the basement had to offer -- wine refrigerator, flourescent lights, pipes and conduit, and the thick cigar aroma, along with line-of-sight (visual and audio) to a rather fiesty bachelor party. Probably all ok if its what you signed up for, but had I know this would be the dinner ambiance, I would have made alternative plans. In short, make sure your reservation is for the main dining room . . .

Best of the best when it comes to the service and preperation and presentation of the food. Incredible ambience, wine list, and side dishes to go with either steak or seafood.

Noise level was high. Not sure what you can do about that given the small restaurant size. We have been there other nights when the noise level was not an issue. \n\nUpdates to furnishings needed - the seat cushion in our booth where it met another cushion was no longer firm. To sit close or in front of the plate you felt you were leaning to the right. I had to change seating spots to sit on the other cushion which was holding its shape to not work at sitting comfortably. My husband then said he was experiencing the same feeling at that seat but managed. \n\nMeal as always was excellent.

My wife and I have wanted to eat here for a long time. We decided to splurge for our 26th anniversary. Our expectations were high with all the great reviews we read. As soon as we walked in we noticed how warm it was. We were sat within 5 minutes. After being sat it took at least 10 minutes for our waiter to make it to our table. He explained the menu and took our drink orders. He came back with my wife's drink and another 5min to bring mine. He asked if we needed time to look at the menu. He had taken so long to come to our table and get the drinks that we were ready to order right away. When he took our drink order he said we would be getting bread for us too. I ended up asking where was the bread a few minutes before the food arrived. The lobster bisque was the best. My wife's filet was perfect. I asked for my Cowboy steak medium rare and it came medium. We asked for ground pepper and he apologized for not offering it right away. A little later he also apologized for not getting the bread out right away too. We noticed the tables on both sides of us were getting great service. We still tipped very well. I guess he was having a bad night.\nI can honestly say we had better service at the Beltline Bar the week before than we did here. \nVery disappointed.\nRandy L.

The oysters are so fresh and the calamari was as tender with a nice, light batter! We tried the Cowboy Steak and Atlantic Salmon for entrees, accompanied by Creamed Corn and Asparagus! All of it was absolutely FANTASTIC! \n\nHarry and Blake were managing that evening, and not only did both of them greet our table, but they gave us the warmest welcome!

We had not heard that much about The Chop House since moving here 3 years ago. We had been to just about every nice (and a few not-so-nice) places in town, but not there. so we decided to visit on out Anniversary. Wish we had gone sooner. I would say that, with Amore, this is the best place in town. We both had filets and they were both excellent in taste and perfectly done. We had Calamari and it was terrific. I had the lobster bisque and it had excellent flavor, but was a little salty. The garlic mashed potatoes and mushrooms accompaniments were well prepared and the desserts (flour-less cake and cheesecake) were flavorful and well made. We had a nice bottle of Shiraz that added nicely to the meal. If I was in NYC, I would say that the service was a bit to friendly and ever-present, but this is West Michigan, and it was very good. So, we will be back regularly. Yes, this place is expensive, but it is worth the price.

Do yourself a favor - go across the street and eat at Ruth's Chris. Appetizer crab and lobster cakes were okay. Ordered medium Filet - came out rare and not even warm. Sent it back. They replaced it with a new steak that was extremely dry - something I might expect from a Longhorn or Branns steak. Will never return. Ruth's Chris is so much better in all ways. Even the Chop House smashed garlic potatoes tasted like they came out of a box.

We went to the chop house for my husbands birthday. On your birthday you get 50% off your meal, which is great bc it's one of the most expensive restaurants in GR. but it is worth every penny!!! Had the smoked salmon appetizer which we liked but didn't love. Had the the lobster bisque which we loved! And we each had 8oz filet Mignon with mashed potatoes and Mac and cheese. First let me say I don't like pink or red steak. But our server TJ recommended I get something called medium plus which is more pink than red. He said medium well would lose the flavor of the steak. I thought I would give it a try and I loved it!!!!!! Best steak I have ever had and I highly recommend it. As for the mashed potatoes and Mac and cheese they were good but nothing special. I've heard their cheesy potatoes and creamed corn are really good. Next time we will try that. Overall a very nice place to eat. Everyone is polite and welcoming and very helpful.

We have dined at Chop House a number of times, and have always raved about it. Until now. We had reservations at 7 Friday evening and arrived at 6:30 for a pre dinner cocktail at the bar. As soon as we sat down, we both noticed the restaurant had a 'different feel' to it, with far fewer smiling staff and a certain loss of professionalism we have always before noted. \nMy wife ordered Beef Wellington, medium and I the Steak Au Poivre mediun well. We have always in the past had our food cooked perfectly to order, but Friday was a disaster. My wife's Wellington was served very rare, so we sent it back. It reappeared only a couple minutes later and it was evident it had just been thrown into a microwave for a couple minutes, so now not only was it I edible, but also very unappealing to look at. To the point my wife just said 'no thanks'. My Au Poivre was also undercooked, more to medium rare, but after the fiasco with the Wellington, I just ate what was passable for me. We were not charged for the Wellington, but did speak with a couple servers and were very disappointed that neither manager working that evening even took the time to come speak with us. Again, we have always been more than satisfied with our dining at the Chop House, but when a dinner for two with nice wine comes in at roughly $350 one should expect, and get, exactly what they order. We live both in Grand Rapids and Savannah and commute back and forth but suspect we will go across the street to Ruth Chris when we next want a steak dinner with nice wine. It truly was an unpleasant evening and experience.

The food and service was excellent, but the cost was at a premium. To be fair, it was some of the best steak I've ever had, and the other food was just as good, but it was over 5 times the price of what I'd regularly pay for a steak dinner. I'm not much for the diminishing returns on prices for gains in quality. That aside, it was a great meal, and the venue had the service and atmosphere to go with it.\n\nI'd recommend it for a special occasion, when you're feeling like splurging to be a bit fancy. Find a discount (they have decent birthday discounts) and treat yourself. However, making it a regular thing would be quite costly.

It was very nice, service was better than most. Nice decor & surroundings, beautiful woodwork and trims. Everyone was VERY WELL trained, and all very professional. The downside to that, was that they didn't interact in a friendly informal way. They were very straightforward in their work, did it well, but didn't feel relaxed.\nBut the reason I'm giving a tad lower rating, is that the cost to be there, didn't relate back to the quality of food. First you need to find parking, then pay for parking - then their pricing structure was high and rather odd. You order your steak, steak ONLY mind you (no potatoes, no vegetables, no soup, no salad) - then you can add on any of the other items, all for an added cost. I knew this was a pricey place going in, so I wasn't worried about that, but when you order a Porterhouse steak (& this steak was $49 - for the steak ONLY), then I would fully expect that this would be the most outstandingly flavorful and tender piece of meat I have EVER had - which it wasn't. Flavor was fine at most, probably should have asked for A1 (but didn't want to insult anyone), but I had some sinewy fibers in almost every bite, I had a nice pile on the edge of my plate when done.\n\nGlad we were there, nice experience, but kinda doubt if we will be back.

The flavor was excellent, but if I'm paying almost $50 a piece for a steak it better melt in your mouth. I had he New York strip and my wife had the cowboy steak. You had to chew a lot with both cuts of meat. I can get a very tender cowboy steak at the Crazy Horse restaurant in Holland for half the price. My New York strip was just as tough. I must say however the flavor was excellent. The ambience and service were outstanding, but I felt the quality of the steak was a real disappointment. I would not recommend getting a steak to a friend.

Hard to hear the people at your table when the restaurant is full. You feel like you are screaming at the waiter and the people you are with at dinner.

Expensive but worth every dollar as we celebrated our Anniversary. Food and service unmatched anywhere in Grand Rapids. Great ambiance as well.

We came for a birthday- so the birthday person's meal was 50% off. Waiter was great, he was friendly and recommended a great bottle of wine. Lobster bisque was delicious, as was the wedge salad. Cowboy steak was very good, filet with blue cheese was good- but blue cheese was a tad overwhelming. Side order of asparagus was blah, side order of mushrooms was delicious. Did not have dessert.

The Chop House is always a great experience. We went here to celebrate my birthday on this occasion. The server was friendly, attentive and effeciant. The food is always good. The appetizers where hot and tasted wonderful. The soups and salads came out at the perfect time. The entrees were hot, great quality and good size portions. This is a great establishment that never disappoints.

We celebrated my dad's 70th birthday there, since it is his favorite restaurant in Grand Rapids. Service was top notch, we had a lovely private 6-top. Great wine and delicious chocolate cake prepared by the pasty chef for the occasion. The only small complaint was that two steaks were switched (person who ordered medium got medium rare and vise versa) and my steak was medium rare instead of medium.

Corey was fantastic waiter. Food was great although my husbands first steak was very grisly. Immediate attention by Corey and manager. A new steak was promptly brought out and it was perfect. Overall wonderful experience.

The Chop House did not disappoint. I requested to sit in a particular area in my reservation and that was immediately accommodated, the service was flawless & the food was amazing. There is no better restaurant in Grand Rapids!

Our waiter was Nick. He got busy with another table and had Kevin help him out. Kevin came to ask us about needing boxes and if we needed anything else. Kevin was an awesome wait staff. If and when I come back I will ask to be sat in Kevin's section. He handled his tables very professional. Nick, well he was average runoff the mill. Could work at Wolfgangs and would still be just an average joe. \nI had a great experience. It was not because of Nick.

The Chop House continues to put out great food and wonderful service. We have visited the restaurant many times and this week was as consistent and enjoyable as ever. We visited Mondy to celebrate my wife's birthday with my 17 year old daughter. Our waiter was fantastic, providing excellent service and recommendations. The dining room was busy on a Monday night, yet everything went very smoothly and timely. The Chop House never disapoints.

We have always had fantastic meals at The Chop House and love the wine pairings on the great menu. Food and wine quality are both wonderful. The service was excellent as well. We return often, especially on special occasions.

Steaks were good but should have been better for the price. Ordered mine medium rare and there was very little juice from the meat. I'm sure it was just an off night as I have always had great food at the GRCH.

This is my second time in the Chop House. The scallops were delicious. The chop salad was just ok for $22. The smashed potatoes were amazing. The NY strip was blah at $44.\n\nThe sommelier recommended an okay bottle of wine for $94.\n\nIt is a good restaurant if you have the money to throw away.\n\nWe celebrate Bdays here because of the discount which is a great deal. Other than that, I dont think we would go if we had to pay full price.

My wife and I love dining out and have been to many nice restaurants over our years together. Outside of a VERY hi priced meal we had in Vegas this was the best experience we have ever had! The only thing better than the food was the pampering and service we received. This is a must try place and if Tesha is available as a server get her!!

John, our server, hit it out of the ball park. And what a pleasure to see Blake in his new role as the Dining Room Manager! The gentleman knows his wine!

We enjoyed the atmosphere and the service was outstanding. Our waiter was present just when we needed him to be, every time. The filets were cooked to perfection, with Oscar style lobster a perfect addition. The lobster bisque was the best I have ever had. You get what you pay for and this was well worth the price. We could become frequent diners at The Chop House.

The service was outstanding. The steaks are excellent. Better than Ruth Chris. Great bar and good drinks. The only disappointment was the wine list. Too few wines by the glass, almost no half-bottles and a limited selection of bottles. \nWe will come back.

The Chop House continues to be one of the reasons I visit Grand Rapids at all. Fantastic experience all around, and I continue to appreciate the transition from dinner to after-dinner downstairs. It makes for a great night. The staff is very well trained. They make sure we 'enjoy' every minute.
