We were looking for a restaurant to accompany a show at Shea's. Because the show was fairly early on a Tuesday evening, many restaurants do not serve beyond 9:30 or 10:00 pm. We checked out the Buffalo Chophouse and were told that we could get...More

Coming up to Buffalo to see my daughter at UB and treat her to a fine dinner. While she enjoys a fine grilled steak, she dreams of roasted Prime Rib. Is it a frequent non-menu item or will she have to suffer through a Rib-eye instead? If you do make it on occasion, our reservation will be for Monday, April 18 and we would really appreciate the courtesy.

Don't know what they serve on a regular basis. Have you called Russells? I'm more sure they do prime rib on a regular basis.
does the chop house serve Easter Bunch
