it really depends on what style of cuts you like
if you are feeling like a boss one night u could get the bone-in ribeye (most expensive steak) but if you just want a casual lunch steak just get a 9oz sirloin or maybe a sirloin oscar with your choice of toppers both equally delicious!

the place is very nice, just like the upscale places in DT.

I've been there about 3 times now. one time my steak was overdone, i asked for medium rare, and it came out medium. Told the waitress and she didnt argue with me, but came back and said "The chef said this is medium rare, but if you like we can remake it" I was kinda ticked but i told her im not pissed at you but at your kitchen. If the kitchen remade it without adding the "you are wrong" comment, i would have been alot happier.

French onion soup needs to be more browned on top, couple times they came out looking they were rushed out of the oven before its properly done.

I'll visit again tho, hopefully its better next time

I thought the entrees were not very good at CHOP... i think even the Keg is better. HOWEVER, their appies are incredible. Their steak bites are so good. =) I haven't gone back in over a year.. so i can't really say if they've improved.

the only appy i get from chop is onion soup, and then the bone-in ribsteak for entree. One more thing to add is : The fish sucks at CHOP, i've heard that from at least 5 friends, but steak is good!, so go there for steak!

Went for my friends birthday about 4 months ago.

Bathrooms were incredible, prob the nicest thing about that place haha.

We all thought the food was OK, not worth the prices though. Appetizers were really good, especially the French Onion Soup and Steak Bites, but the entrees seemed lacking in terms of execution. My friend had the Prime Rib and he thought it was an ok cut, he said he preferred the Keg's prime rib. I'm not much of a steak person myself so I had the chicken, which again was ok, but nothing that I am running back for. Another friend had the Chop Burger and she only finished half of it, she mentioned it was really salty.

I like the environment more than the food, overall was quite average IMO.

Hey man im sorry to hear about that bad experience you had, but back then we were under the management of a different head chef which is now gone.. but now there is a regional chef thats running the show, and nothing leaves the kitchen unless it is perfection. I welcome you to come back again, i'm sure you will definately enjoy your meal

thx bcrukes, i did a review on Chop a year ago and I've been back multiple times, the last time I went was December and haven't been back. why? just cause I've had a lot of their dinner stuff and also the lunch menu and it's time to try something else.

I have to say the outdoors patio has gotta to be the best I've been to at least in Richmond, yes the bathroom is nice and big but I've been to nicer places.

Shit johnny you finally got the job?
Haha I've been to chop about 3x in the last 5 months

Love the mashed potatoes

LOL my friend ordered the iceberg wedge last time really regretted it lmao

Had a bone-in rib eye last month I think it was, and it was pretty good

Gf usually orders the chop salad with chicken breast, I really don't like it with the steak, feels like some teriyaki sauce or smth.

Also had the top sirloin oscar, should've asked for the sauce on the side, gf's mom didn't like it but we thought it was pretty good.

What things do you recommend?

You guys have the best washroom btw

Been there twice for food, both times were below average in terms of food quality for price paid.

The fish was overdone and dry the first time I went. Second time I went the seafood pasta was not well done either.

I only go there for drinks and appy's now since the Lounge is a very nice room.

went there about a month ago
food was just average, didnt really pay attention to the price since i wasnt the one paying
but what was interesting was my one of my aunts had diarrhea and threw up at the same time that night, about 5 hours after eating at chop.

Doesn't it take more than 5 hours to be affected by the last thing you ate?
