We really enjoyed our dinner. The service was good. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was cooked as we ordered and seasoned well. I really enjoyed the elk tenderloin. It was cooked medium rare and the sauce and sides tasted so good.

Shrimp gnocchi was UNBELIEVABLY AMAZING. Took leftovers and was just as good as the night I had them. My friends St Louis ribs were the best she’s had according to her and then there’s the dessert!!!! Complimentary blueberry cheesecake for her BD and my chocolate mousse pyramid was perfect!! Incredibly great food- highly recommended

Great food, although it seemed like there was a whole apple in my chicken apple walnut salad, and it was a bit more than I needed to balance the chicken and greens. My husband enjoyed his Bison Steak Oscar!

I would like to recognize the head hostess. He was exceptionally nice and helped a fellow customer pay me the honor of being a Vietnam Veteran, by buying me and my wife's dinner. This honor has never been given to me before since Vietnam War. Your hostess made it so the man did this without me knowing till I was ready to pay my bill. At first the hostess said he just wanted to buy me a beer for my service but latter I found out he bought both my wife's and mine dinner. Im very sure the man who did this so honorable juster was so glad to know have me thanking him so much for this honor. I know this doesn't seam like munch but to a service man that was booed and spit on when he returned from a war he was sent to by his country it means so much I cant say! If I could have paid him for helping in the task I would but he would have none of it! Instead he told me he and the rest of the staff thanks me for my service!! I am so indebted to him for his kindness! Michael L Frazier

I brought my fiance here for Valentine's day and wasn't disappointed! Hannah was a wonderful server and the food was amazing! I had the elk chops with barley risotto and it is quite possibly the best meal I have ever had. Thank you Hannah and the Chop House for a wonderful Valentine's celebration!!!
