I had limited time and wanted a good steak and this place was perfect. I had a small ribeye that was cooked perfectly with great flavor. A nice place that is good for couples.

We had a very large group (12) of business people at the Chop House on a Tuesday night. The restaurant was quiet enough for us to talk across the table partially because it is broken up into sections. The atmosphere is somewhat historic, somewhat hip....More

This restaurant is large, historic looking, and in a great location, but is just missing something. The food was excellent and well-prepared; the server was very good and hard-working; but the place was almost vacant. If it weren't so pricey, it would merit a return...More

We made reservations for dinner for two before heading to the theater. We both ordered salads and neither had much dressing. Had to ask for more. Steaks were cooked to perfection and seasoned well. All in all it was very good.

Meh. Average steaks. Below average wine list. The high rating for this steakhouse is due to the location only. Any chain restaurant would rate higher, given the location. Prices too high, given the quality of the food and wine service.

The Mesquite Chop House is like no other steak house in the South. The Prime Steaks and Chops are grilled to perfection over Mesquite wood and served with an array of unique sides. We choose from only the finest USDA-Certified Aged Steaks available. Always at it's prime is not just our brand, it's how we try to live our lives as restaurateurs. We have built a concept in which high standards permeate all aspects of our restaurant. We are passionate about great tasting food and the pleasure of sharing it with others. Our menu items are prepared with organically grown produce from our very own Cherry Blend Farms in Holly Springs, Mississippi.
