Tried to eat there tonight and they tried to poison my wife and I by serving cornbread in a cast-iron skillet that had not been rinsed or seasoned. The bread was full of soap and metal scrubby shavings. The almond rice pilaf had no almonds but they used cheap walnuts as a substitute. The calamari was a bunch of tiny pieces over breaded to make them look big. The prime rib was so salty without the ajoice that it was inedible. When we notified the waitress she got a huge attitude. The manager showed no interest or concern. If you are not featured on the sports pages you get the scraps. But they are not shy about charging. $100 for crap. Don't waste your time or money at this restaurant.

We had a retirement celebration for a coworker at the Denver Chop House....it was the worst dining experience I've ever had! First of all it was a lunch that had been scheduled for two weeks. We arrived at 11:30 and the hostess wasn't prepared for a party of our size, (20 people) like I said they had 2 weeks to get this set up. They tried to seat us in booths so that it would have been impossible to have conversations with each other. The wait staff was also inept, the waiters weren't keeping tabs on who had already ordered and mixed up almost all of the drinks, when we ordered or meals most ordered a baked potato, a few minutes later the waiter came back to inform us they were out of baked potato's....at 11:30 AM. The waiters forgot to bring condiments for our salads that we asked for numerous times, our steaks were road kill. It was in a word horrendous, the worst dining experience ever! I wrote to the manager about our experience a few days after the luncheon, as of now I still have not heard a peep from them. I and most of the other people that attended will not be back.

As stated above, unless you're someone the restaurant recognizes, expect less than great service - tasleless food and upseeling to higher priced wines. It's a shame a place that could be so good obviously panders only to those whose names are know in Denver. I won't be back. There are many place in Denver that offer great food for the price and nobody needs to know who you are.

I was very happy with them when we went for Happy Hour, and got good meals. And I had planned to come back for a real full meal, but I've since re-thought that. I did the Lodo Bites tour, and was so disappointed with them. The whole point of the event was to showcase local restaurants' fare. So they are a steakhouse, famous for their steak, at least for their meat, hence the name ""Chophouse"". Their sample of fare was a cheese plate and fruit plate I could have put together in my kitchen. Not only was there no meat, but nothing that even took any effort, or did anything to showcase their fare at all. If they are going to put so little into the event, don't bother. It did more to damage my previously good opinion of them than to draw me back for more, or any of the six other people I was with.

Last evening, I dined with a party of 10 people. I ordered filet mignon (8 ounce) and the filet mignon which was presented looked like a tiny replica of Texas. Therefore, I don't believe my steak was a filet mignon.
My girlfriend’s filet mignon looked like a filet mignon but it was burnt. She had ordered medium rare. Maybe my girlfriend and I ordered the wrong steaks; as I have heard it is difficult to prepare filet mignons.
The food items that were great: the white cheddar mashed potatoes and the corn bread. Needless to say, this was a disappointing dining experience.

So overall, this was a let down. I was expecting more for the $40+ I put out. The beer (Dry Stout), salad, cornbread and steak were great! Even though I ordered steak medium rare and it came rare -it was still a great steak! I would of sent it back, but it was 10pm and I was starved! Our waiter was nice, but rather slow and kinda inattentive. The Chophouse definitely fails on atmosphere - it is quite loud due to wood floors, brick wall and a ceiling consisting of exposed pipes. Thank God I was with friends and not on a date! Presentation of table and food was also dissapointing. I understand the rationale for putting a paper table cloth on top of the cloth one, but it has a tacky feel to it! Also, the actual plates themselves look liked something a diner would use. If I had paid $20 or so, I probably wouldn't be complaining, but this was not in line with my Midwestern sense of value....

We went to the chophouse for Mother's Day. I had to call ahead and verify they are handicapped accessible for my mom who is in a wheel chair. When I called thery were very polite and made sure we knew there was handicapped parking available for free and the ramp to enter the restaurant. When we arrived they were very courteous and made sure we sat where my mom could easily access. We went for brunch so the prices weren't as high as they would be for dinner. However, my husband ordered the filet minion (about $30) and has talked everyday about how much he enjoyed the meat and how it was perfectly cooked and the bacon that was wrapped around it was the perfect cut. We plan on going back to dinner soon so he can try something else.
I had the steak & cheddar ($10), which is similar to a french dip. It was very good. I enjoyed it very much and had so much food I could only eat half. Both my parents had breakfast meals and enjoyed theirs quite a bit as well. The restaurant was beautiful and we had a perfect table on their porch where we opened the doors and watched the people on the street. I would definitely recommend to go here again. The service was great and my mom thought it was perfect for mother's day.
Pros: handicapped accessible and accomodating, great food, great service, beautiful restaurant
Cons: be prepared to pay about $15-$20/person for brunch and $30+ for dinner

This visit was for my wife's company party and a first time visit for both of us. The bacon wrapped filet was one of the best I have ever had; it literally melted in your mouth. Service was fair, if you consider there were around 30 people and only two servers, it was better than fair. This is definitely a place I will return to for a quiet night out away from the kids.

My boyfriend and I visited the chophouse after the bronco game on sunday. I've always heard great things about the chop house so I was excited to finally try it. From the begining i could tell that the night was going to be a disaster. Our server was not very friendly and couldn't even take the time to introduce himself. I ordered a cup of coffee and when I got it was cold. After he dropped off our drinks my boyfriend ordered his food and our server started to walk away, I had to practically yell at him that I would take the same. His response was ""I assumed you would share."" Who honestly shares at a nice restaraunt, where the portions aren't very big. I ordered my steak medium and it came out rare. Our server never came back to make sure the food tasted ok. Someone else took our plates away and I ended up having to take my steak home and cook it myself. Bad food, Bad service would not recommend to anyone!

I first visited The Chop House because a good friend of mine is a waiter there and I fell in love with this establishment upon being seated. The atmosphere & the service are phenomenal (not just because I have a friend that works there, I've been there without him). I have tried several dishes ranging from grilled Mahi Mahi with a garlic orange sauce to the gorganzola filet with white cheddar mashed potatoes. Every bite I have had at The Chop House has been delightful. My favorite dish by far is the gorganzola filet.
The versatility of this restaurant is amazing as well. Perfect for a romantic night out, yet also great for a group to get together and enjoy an evening together. Go ahead and indulge yourself! Take a cab, have a few martinis and enjoy!

This locally owned chain restaurant stands above ordinary chain restaurants. Our company as a rule ... takes all our visitors here and have yet to have anything but a good experience. We have literally hosted 100's of visitors to Denver here ordering everything from apps to deserts and everything in between. We always have a table of at least 6-8 and we are ALWAYS treated perfectly. Food Snob would certainly let you know otherwise. I dont think its the most romantic place in town evenings, but it is one of the best business spots day or night.

We tried the Denver ChopHouse for the first time on my 60th birthday last month. It was my choice based on posted reviews and the reputation of it being a pro jock haunt. I wanted to see how good the steaks were at a place frequented by those who appreciate a good steak and can afford to go anywhere for one (excluding paid endorsements of course).
Well I was not disappointed! I had the Porterhouse, medium, and my wife the New York strip, medium-well. Both were excellent and cooked just the way we wanted them. Oh, and pass on the baked potato or fries for the white cheddar mashed potatoes. They are to die for! My wife had the rice pilaf, which she says was excellent. The onion rings appetizer was also great.
It was nice having salad, corn bread, steak, and the side as a meal. We used to frequent Chart House for special occasions until they made everything al carte. That's just a ploy to jack up the price of a meal without giving folks sticker shock.
What to drink? While the beer selection is the same as Rock Bottom Brewery (they are both owned by the same firm), that's not bad. I prefer the Pilsner and my wife the wheat, but almost all of their choices are superb. I believe this craft brewed beer selection is one of the best in the Rock Mountain West.
The service was as good as the food and the general ambiance of the place fit nicely with the occasion. Granted the ChopHouse has a more masculine tone, which stuffy Briarwood ladies probably wouldn't appreciate. But, my forty-something wife loved it. She especially liked the heavily padded, comfortable booths and the very attentive wait staff.
So I highly recommend the Denver ChopHouse to anyone looking for a great steak and a reasonable meal price.

We just ate at the ChopHouse, which came highly recommended by a bunch of people. We were not disappointed. The host staff was friendly, the bar staff was great, and the service was excellent. The food, wow! Our steaks were the best we've had, not only here in Denver but anywhere. We will also recomment the Chophouse to all our friends.

We thought we would give the Chophouse a try for a late mid-week dinner. What a mistake. We were made to wait at the bar for a half hour while there were clearly tables open. Once seated, we were finally approached by the worst server I have ever experienced. His poor attempt at humor was offensive. The uncreative and overpriced winelist was only accented by the fact this moron could not open the bottle. We should have left then. But we stayed only to experience a meal that one might expect at Chili's, for half the price. No offence to Chili's, we'll visit you next time for a far better experience!
