The Chop House - Grand Rapids Ratings and Reviews

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.

Dined here to celebrate a birthday party. The quality of service provided by the staff, chefs and the management was exceptional. A special thanks to Harry, the general manager for making it all happen. Furthermore, Matt and Harry helped me with last minute changes and even offered me an upgrade. That was a very special night. Definitely dining here again. Keep up the good work.

We enjoyed another great dinner prior to an event at DeVos Hall. Our server, Kim, was not only attentive to our meal service, but had a welcoming wit at the same time. Kudos to the entire staff in the front and the back of the house!
P.S. We love the cheesecake desserts!

The food was excellent but we were disappointed with the table we were seated at. We were there to celebrate our anniversary and it was not romantic at all. We were seated right next to the station were the servers entered and tabulated their orders . That really prevented it from being a special evening for us.

The food was really good and didn't have to wait forever for it. Dining area was very nice and upscale. My filet was served as ordered as well as my husbands ribeye. The sides were extremely good as well. We had asparagus and cheese potatoes...yum!
The wait staff was very prompt with getting us whatever we needed.
The only thing I would change is validating parking, or a refund on parking. That would have been a nice higher end perk to a very nice evening in an awesome restaurant.

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.
Travis 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.

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!

Our annual Christmas Eve dinner was, as usual, exceptional. The holiday ambiance, coupled with the impeccable service, and delectable meal was a tradition that we will continue to partake in for as long as we are able to. As the price is something we can only afford on a special occasion, it's well worth a once-a-year trip for anyone.

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.

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.
Potato 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.
He 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.
We 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.

Such civil and not overly obsequious service. The lobster bisque and french onion soups are fantastic. The bread is just right. We arrived at 515p for a 730p show and it worked out perfect and we did NOT have entrees, just soup, salad, dessert, and coffee.

As always, the food was outstanding and you can't beat the price on your birthday--50% off dinner for two. I had filet mignon which just melts in your mouth, partner had dover sole which he said was excellent. Service is always attentive without being overbearing or too stuffy.
Reservations highly recommended.

Food and service were excellent, we requested a quiet table thru open table to celebrate our anniversary but that didn't happen, restaurant was very busy and the noise level was quite high. For the money the servings could have been a bit more generous on the entrees, I had the bone in filet (very good) and my wife had the Dover sole. We both had the lobster bisque, yum! And shared a salad and desert, we did not go home hungry.

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. I doubt I will ever return to this establishment.

The reservation process seems weird. We had to go earlier than we wanted because they were booked, yet there were many empty tables at the time we really wanted. Prices are getting higher and higher. Coffee was most disappointing, very weak. Still our place to go for special occasions. Food/service was wonderful.
