A sheer sense of beef exuberance, to the tune of Glenn Miller. – The Scene
Comfortably stuck in the past (National Air Races posters and faded photos of Cleveland Indians dot the dining room), the ChopHouse's 1940s ambience is so complete you'll be wondering if you're doing enough for the war effort. The swinging sounds of Glenn Miller bounce off the brick walls, tall glasses of the house microbrews foam and everyone fondly flirts with the bartenders.
Start with the grilled portabello mushroom appetizer, a dish that can cure even the greatest depression. As for the main attraction, the most extravagant feature of the steaks and chops are their size. In addition to steaks, choose from salmon, lobster, lamb, shrimp or tuna. The accoutrements include chunky mashed potatoes, grilled asparagus and generous dinner salads. More casual fare includes burgers and salads. Accompany any meal with one of the brewery's handcrafted beers.
Excellent food and service! – Had reservations for 8 and only 3 showed thus greatly reducing the waiters tip, he remained professional and accommadating. We all ordered steak and lobster tail, the food was superb and we are planning to return soon! Yes we left a large tip.
Best of the Warehouse District – I had a great meal and a great experience at the Cleveland Chophouse. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. Try their microbrews, they are excellent and the bar has an ice rail which was "cool".
Red Meat is King – Had the peppercorn NY Strip with a monstrous helping of garlic mashed potatoes. The food was fabulous, the cornbread covered in melted butter, the asparagus, portabello mushroom caps were all just incredible. We ordered some IPA's which were ok, and the Cabernet and Single Malt were top notch.
Great Steaks – I chose the chop house for my birthday and the food was great! Spinach and artichoke dip was piping hot and delicious. We each had a salad that was out of this world. The steaks are huge along with the 4 cups of mashed potato served with the steak! The only disappointment was the complimentary "brownie" and ice cream they gave me for my birthday. The brownie had absolutely no taste and was dry as a bone. Perhaps if they would have brought the dessert menu, they could have made a few extra bucks. I would definately recommend them to anyone craving a huge steak! The micro-brewed beers are also highly recommended!
What happened to my first review? – Someone has a vedetta against the chophouse because I previously gave this establishment a glowing review.
To summarize what was said before, it was an awesome experience. We (My date and I) went to the restaurant late on a friday night in Septemeber 2004. We arrived at 10:30 and had virtually NO wait. Our waiter was very attentive and our food was great. My date had a steak covered in crumbled blue cheese, and I had shrimp scampi. The sweet cornbread is to die for. We spent about $70 for the two of us and that included alcoholic drinks.
Please don't let a few negative reviews stop you from trying this wonderful restaurant. You'll be missing out on a treat!
Dont Waste Your Time – Went to the Chop House for my birthday and was VERY dissapointed. Our server was quite unpleasant. She did not even know what was on their salads as far as types of lettuce, cheese or available dressings. I ordered the bacon wrapped fillet mignon. 1 slice of 7 hour old reheated bacon around a very tough piece of meat. When inquiring as to if that food was standard, she gave me the answer of " Well you get what ya pay for." Pass this one up!! Ponderosa is better!!
Warehouse District Wonder – Exposed brick and warehouse atmosphere invite a family friendly yuppie crowd to this easy to find hard to park location. The steaks are cut thick, seasoned properly and served with the best white cheddar garlic mashed potatoes east of Vegas. Sunday brunch has a wonderful selection of made to order omlettes & waffles along with carved beef, turkey and ham and specialties like mussles and Clevelands best dessert selection. Not cheap, but well worth it. Also has microbrewed on premise beer selection that is good, but not up to par with Great Lakes Brewing Company (but no one else is either). A must try.
Great Steaks, Decent Brews – This may not have been the best steak I ever had, but it was the best one in recent memory. The portion was huge, although some of it was fat. Still, the taste was superb.
As for the brews, they have a selection of about 5, with a seasonal that rotates. I really liked the American Pale Ale.
We were there on a weeknight so they were not too busy, and the service was good. Overall, if you want a great steak and a good ale to go with it, check this place out.
