We were in town for just a night and based on other reviews decided to give this place a try. It's a nice small intimate setting with white table cloths and the level of service that implies. We sat at the bar and had a...More

Not the most stylish or trendy restaurant in town, but there's no better steak in Rochester than this Old World classic. The service is excellent, the drinks generously poured, and the food is excellent down to the smallest detail.

What an awesome place this is. Went there on a saturday night, reservation strongly recommended. Their drinks are really good, the bar has basically everything you could want. The place is a little tight but we got a great table for 6. The chef/ kitchen...More

Walked in to a TINY place with no waiting area. The bar is small and is not a place to enjoy a cocktail or two before dinner if that is what you are looking for. It took 10 minutes to even get the bartender to...More

Max's Chophouse came highly recommended so my husband and I tried it. We looked forward to the best steak - but didn't happen. Max's is a small place, mellow, loungy atmosphere. There is a good size bar. We were promptly seated. Our server was very...More

This is the best I've eaten in Rochester, so far. I am an out-of-towner who comes to Rochester to visit my son once or twice a year. We have made the rounds of the best restaurants in town, but this one comes out on top....More

The Chophouse is small. Reservations are suggested. Inside there are tables along one wall and a “back room” that holds about four tables. It is at the end of the bar and not really separated from the front of the restaurant. The wall behind the...More

Absolutely tremendous food. The prices are high, in line with upscale restaurants, but well worth it. This was one of those dinners where you are raving after every bite. Service was prompt, attentive and professional. Highly recommend.
