The reasturant is very casual open seating, menu is generic and food is OK but when you pay $13.00 for a martini spoiled the night This ain't NY

Chow's is a popular place all meals of the day. I think the main attraction is pretty good food at a reasonable price. I like the Thai noodles or mixed seafood linguini. My wife likes the pot roast or lamb burger. The bartenders here are...More

Always a reliable option. A bit overpriced but it's an upscale restaurant in Danville. Burgers and salads are excellent.

Lots of heaters, very pleasant atmosphere. Inside can be noisy but outdoor dining is quiet & relaxing. This is "bistro" menu dining. Nothing very complicated but a nice variety of soups, appetizers & main courses. Bar is very good & desserts can be very good!

I do not understand why this place is so crowded, beyond the fact it is a young people's noisy hangout. This is not the place for a quiet dinner. There is an area with tables outside, a lot quieter but obviously an option when the...More

There were plenty of dogs on the patio when we were there on a Sunday for brunch. And no, I don't think they were service dogs.

At Chow, we only use organic produce. We are proud to use products from local vendors and to use those products to make everything in house. Our Danville location has a bakery kitchen that makes all the fresh produce and then sends it to each of our locations. If you love our jams, salad dressings or anything else, please note that our Lafayette location has a Farmers’ Market with these products. You can now add Chow’s Cooking to your Home Cooking! Enjoy!
