For years the Boulder Chophouse has remained our mainstay for a FAB burger at HH. We were there last night and friends who hadn't been there joined us! Great food all around. We seem to order the cornbread for the table w/ wine,etc and after trying everything on the HH menu, we feel the burger can not be beat! Even... More

We eat here every time we visit Boulder. Last weekend was probably our 8th visit. It was busy. All tables were full. We ordered our usual appetizer and cocktails (crab cakes ) and steaks. I also ordered a salad. Appetizer and drinks came out then approximately 20 minutes later our steaks. I didn't get my salad. Two steaks had to... More

Boulder Chop House is a local favorite. A very relaxed place. The hot bread that they serve in at the start is amazing. The crab cakes, the salmon, the pork chop is really good! The staff is always nice. This restaurant is located across from the St Julian Hotel. Make reservations for dinner. It is often booked.

We had an amazing dinner at Boulder Chophouse & Tavern! I'm really unsure why this place does not have better reviews. We were able to find great vegetarian options AND amazing steaks, pleasing our picky crowd! We enjoyed great drinks and even desserts! I would highly recommend this gem of a restaurant located right across the street from the St.... More

You'll definitely get what you came for - a great steak dinner! Classic steakhouse ambience and a solid steak menu. Crab cakes were fantastic! Prime Ribeye was solid, and last but not least - creme brûlée was superb! Very hospitable staff!

This is a great place for a meal or a relaxing drink. The Kansas City Strip was very delicious. Try it with the Gorgonzola topping. The sharpness of the cheese is complimented well by a sweet sauce. The bread is a very good treat before the entrée arrives! The wait staff is very friendly and prompt with refills. I recommend... More

Took my son and his starving college room mates here. Wait staff was very friendly and helpful. They have a great selection of local Beer. The steaks are as good as it gets. My son and his buddies had the Filets. I had the Prime Rib Eye. Cooked to perfection. We ordered sides of Mashed Cheddar Potatoes that were great.... More

Dinner with a group of 12 men and women to close out a weekend Association Board meeting-The Chophouse was walking distance from the Boulderado Hotel and came recommended. The establishment was upscale without being pretentious. The service staff were accommodating and attentive. The food was generally good and moderately priced for what it was. The sides and hors d'oeuvres were... More

Out of the three of us, two ordered perfectly cooked, juicy and delicious steaks: one porterhouse and one prime rib. I ventured away from steak and ordered the rack of lamb, which our waiter highly recommended. Unfortunately it arrived way overdone and over-seasoned for my liking. I also had a baked potato which was undercooked and a fantastic wedge salad... More

While dinner here is also excellent, we enjoy dropping by there for happy hour to get really good deals on drinks and their bar menu.
