Steakhouse

The Chop House opened its doors in December 2009, offering a new food concept within a Dublin 4 pub! Our focus is to produce high quality dishes using the best of Irish produce. As the name suggests our main ingredient is Irish Meat, the winner of which is our beef. We source this from 2 farms, 1 in Co. Louth, 1 in Roscommon. You will find it difficult to resist a steak once you have been presented with our now famous “Meat Board”, which showcases cuts such as Ribeye, Fillet, Sirloin, and Porterhouse, along with Lamb and Pork choices. Our menu also includes a variety of excellent fish dishes! Kevin Arundel the Chef/Owner and his head Chef Kevin Gallagher have adapted their skills from Michelin star restaurants, to suit the more relaxed environment in The Chop House.

    The food was amazing and all 3 of our group were impressed by the standard of the food. The staff were friendly , attentive but not overbearing Would definitely go back Although it isn't cheap it is pretty much in line with similar places in Dublin Atmosphere was lively without being too loud

    Food is amazing here. As are the drinks. It’s a little pricey but the quality is incredible so you get what you pay for. The service was the best we’ve experience in a long time. We weren’t intruded upon but our glasses were never empty, we weren’t left waiting looking for staff and plates were cleared at the perfect time. All Covid protocols adhered to. Wonderful evening.

    Always first class food from Kevin's kitchen and Joe and his floor staff always make you feel like an important guest, not just another booking. Cannot recommend The Chophouse highly enough. Fantastic pint of Guinness and a comprehensive wine list too (they also do a great Passionfruit Martini to round the evening off).

    Food and service was excellent as always in here. At the end of our dinner we git a bit unlucky though with a lot of quite high voice young people came to sit next to our table, but other than that the dinner was excellent, so thanks The Chophouse chef & team!

    The Chophouse has exceptional food with great flavours and is really excellent! The only fault I would have with our lunch was there was a huge gap between two of our party ordering a starter and then the main courses arriving. Everyone was very hungry in our group and I felt it was quite slow in terms of getting our mains. Otherwise we really enjoyed the meal and will be back again.

    We were delighted to finally get a booking at the Chophouse after many attempts and our meal did not disappoint! Our filets were well seasoned and expertly prepared- definitely the best steak I’ve had in Dublin! Our server was very attentive and personable and recommended an excellent wine to pair with our meal. The sticky toffee pudding was the perfect way to end a truly delicious meal. Would highly recommend this restaurant.
