Located off Arroyo Parkway in Pasadena, this is a high end steakhouse. The Chop House serves quality beef prepared as you like it. They also have an extensive wine list. It is both expensive but very good. Valet parking is available.

Arroyo Chop house is a pleasant and reliable Pasadena steakhouse. Lots more steakhouse competition in Pasadena now (Ruth's Chris, Flemings, Del Frisco etc) but i think Arroyo delivers. Like many steakhouses, the prices seems high ($40-50 for an a la carte entree) but the steak...More

Not really! California casual is the order of the day. Dress comfortably but warmly because of the air conditioning, but jackets are not required!

We are happy to serve children. We do not have a child's menu and the atmosphere, as other guests mentioned, is steakhouse ambiance—dark wood, booths, and dim lighting. We do all that we can to accommodate our guests... More

USDA Prime Steaks, served exclusively, are aged, hand-cut daily, and perfectly seared in a 500 degree oven. Traditional steakhouse side dishes include creamed spinach, roasted garlic-mashed potatoes and massive asparagus spears. All desserts are made in-house including the signature Chocolate and Grand Marnier Souffles. The strikingly handsome restaurant exudes a youthful energy that gives the time-honored dining concept universal appeal. Our seasoned staff makes every effort to ensure our guests a remarkable dining experience and are happy to help guide them through the award-winning wine list.
