Chops/Lobster Bar - 50 Best Restaurants - Features - Atlanta Magazine

Chops/Lobster Bar

“Which is better: Bone’s or Chops?” is one of the eternal questions of the Atlanta dining scene. I choose Bone’s, but that doesn’t mean I disregard its closest competitor. Chops has always drawn a frothier crowd than most steakhouses, probably because it strutted onto the scene at the end of the overblown eighties. The finest among its beef options is the dry-aged porterhouse, a cut that encompasses filet mignon and New York strip. Dover sole, dressed with lemon and capers, will tide over displaced fans waiting for the much-delayed reincarnation of Pano’s & Paul’s (also owned by the Buckhead Life Restaurant Group), where the fish was a signature dish. Chops has an ace sidekick: the downstairs Lobster Bar, an homage to New York’s tiled, vaulted Grand Central Oyster Bar.

    I always choose Chops for my birthday dinner. Service is always great. The SA lobster tail is always impeccable! The steaks are some of the finest cuts of meats the peppercorn sauce! You just cannot go wrong choosing Chops!
