We loved this place, but recently things have gone downhill. I had catfish and it was well oveooked, being quite dry. Hard to goof up this as it comes breaded and frozen. My wife had a Cobb salad, but the chicken strips were not good,...More

It was quiet enough to enjoy conversation around the table of four, we shared an appetizer plate with a variety of unusual cheeses, jelly and crackers that was very good. All our entries were good.

Great local cafe. Great steaks, angus burgers, salads. Chef specials usually everyday. Business or pleasure, you won’t be disappointed.

We have always had fantastic food and service here. It’s very large compared to other establishments in town and so they can accommodate large parties. The owner and chefs really know their stuff. I love the French Dip Sandwich and the Wings! The beer selection...More

My wife and I had a great time at Chops & Hops. I am new to Trip Advisor, but felt that the food and especially the staff at this local restaurant deserved a good review. My steak was cooked perfectly, and my wife thoroughly enjoyed...More

We live local in Watkinsville and enjoy walking to lunch and dinner. Our experience recently was disappointing. We had a party of ten and nearly every meal was poorly prepared. The hamburgers were undercooked, the steak was red and the guest had asked for medium...More

Heard about this place from a customer of mine. Unfortunately we did not have a great experience. Bar area was nice. Bartender was great, informative about the beer and friendly. We were seated upstairs. Waitress seamed rushed. Didn't go over specials or items on menu....More

It depends on the time you want to visit. Early dinner is a better chance of a short wait. Dinner at 7 -8 could be longer with no reservation. I would suggest making a reservation especially on a weekend. It is worth the... More

This really is a great place to eat AND drink. I tried to post a link to their website, but apparently that violates the protocols. If you Google "Chop & Hops Athens" you can get a link to their homepage and the full food... More
