So Sad its Gone. This was our favorite restaurant in the Richmond area. We had been going there for about 10 years, loved the food, staff was fantastic, cannot say enough about the place. Our family will truly miss all of our friends that we met over the years, especially the manager, Larry, a fantastic guy. The Meredith Family
RESTAURANT IS CLOSED FOR GOOD. i just wanted to let everyone know that HILL CITY chop house is now closed. So sad...had a lot of good memories, met a lot of great people my 7 years being there. So I just wanted to let people know that its closed and NEVER OPENING BACK UP!!! No more crabcakes, boatload of shrimp, 5.99 lunches.....so sad my heart is heavy but just wanted to share the news!!!
Steak and seafood. My family has been going here for years the rolls are great the seafood good especially the Boathouse shrimp. But we went in there recently for dinner and they would not serve me the boathouse shrimp they said it was only a lunch special and brunch special. I told the server that I always ordered it at lunch, brunch and dinner that the dinner price is $6.00 dollars more and a little bigger. It is not on the menu though the server said she knew that other people ordered it all the time as well. The server needed the manager to put the order in he said he would not do it. He was to busy socializing on the bench. To lazy to get up.He never even came to the table. We havent been back since it is unfortunate that when you like a restaurant and the food is good that a manager not wanting to do his job can ruin it for you. They should put the shrimp on the regular menu it is great. Then the manager wont have to be bothered.
Best Food Around!.
I have dined at this restaurant for several years and quite often and I have never had a meal I did not love! The steaks are excellent and the lunch menu is wonderful, affordable and you never leave hungry after lunch or dinner. The boatload of shrimp and the steaks are my favorites, but everything I have ever ordered there was delicious! You can't beat the price for the portion and flavor of the meals there.
If you haven't been there, you need to go. It's number one on my list!
Good food ......lousey service!!!!!.
This use to be my favorite place to eat. Loved the roast beef. On my last visit I had a waitress with a totally BAD ATTITUDE. Arriving at my table we had to wait awhile. So we asked another waiter to get our waitress. When she arrived we had to get her attention. When she finally spoke to us I could not understand her and I told her so. So she gestures with her hands as if to say DRINK DRINK in a rather rude way. In a rascist way. I was offended. So when she went to get our drinks I whispered to my wife that this lady was rude to me and she had noticed it too. When she brought our drinks I noticed my glass was dirty. It had food particles in it.
We brought it up to her. She did not even apologize to me or even talk to me. Good no tip for her. I have eaten there for lunch for the past 3 years but will not return. I can go down the road to Ashland and have the same roast beef at a competing restaurant. Believe me food tastes the worst when you have bad service!!!!!!
5 Star Restaurant.
By far the most for any family. High Class, Best cooked and tasting steaks and OH their yeast rolls are to live for.
VERY reasonable pricing. Best prices in VA.
This is located in Virginia Center Commons on number 1 Hwy. On the Right coming from 295 and on the left coming from 95 at Atlee and Elmont.
If you don't try this place that's OK
It just means more for us here in Ashland and surrounding areas.
I have eaten at the Best and the worst and by far this IS MY NUMBER 1 DINING EXPERIENCE!!!!!!!!!
Thanks to all at River City Chop House.
AWESOME SERVICE. ASK FOR ASHLEY She works Saturdays and Sundays. She is an excellent waitress.... very attentive - hard to find a good waitress these days!
great food, bad management. My fire department eats here every year when attending the state fire training school in Caroline. We always choose this resteraunt because of the quality of the food and the prices are not bad at all for the quantity. However, it remains in question if we will return another year as we had an extremely unpleasant experience this year with the manager Larry.
It's food so good, it's not to be missed. I'm a food expert. As a traveling horseshoe farrier, I eat well & out alot. I'll spare you the details but I'm looking at 387lbs on my portly 5'5" frame. When I'm in VA, I stuff my face @ the Chophouse. I like to eat alone but that doesn't stop the staff from chatting w/me. My wife sometimes comes (you know, ball and chain...) and she knows all their names and thinks they're good people too. I enjoy the fat & juicy COCONUT shrimp because it's heavily breaded (w/coconut). And the sauce, oh the sauce will melt out of your mouth & mess the napkin. I forgot the bread! They give you bread BEFORE the meal, no matter what! No one does this anymore and I appreciate it. Did I mention it's all you can EAT bread? It's a slightly sweet tasting treat & it's not just hot, it's PIPING hot! The butter on the side looks like a little scoop of vanilla ICECREAM. You know what I mean, it's funny how they do that. OK, I usually just get soda to drink since the liver thing a few years ago (12 steps), but they have a good assortment of the hooch if you need it. Big people drinks are all there. I like the soda @Chophouse better than the stuff at the store. They give you more if you run out so theres that too. My other usual appetizer is the chicken tenders w/fries (they give you slaw with it, but I don't believe in cabbage) and it's a meal itself! I estimate it's about 3lbs of white meat that they MAKE there. NO FROZEN JUNK HERE! The fries are SEASONED. Then I get the half slab dinner-babyback ribs. RIBS!!! For the main course, I like to get the 20oz K.C. strip with a side of 16oz All AMERICAN sirloin. I ask for a triple helping of mushrooms & onions to get my five veggies a day. There's a manager there I think might be sweet on my wife since he always talks to us but it's alright! The atmosphere is slightly chilly (OK since I sweat when I eat) but very nice & old timey. They have booths & ketchup IS provided. The glasses are like the ones I have at home. The mints are green PINWHEEL type.
Best hot bread around. I have been visiting the chop-house for several years and have always enjoyed the hooottttt bread!!! hott bread is the best around. The fried seafood platter is amazing and the crab cakes ares always pan sauteed to extra-dimensional perfection. The steaks are glorious The cook even offers to meet and greet when available.. he is so personable and friendly oh god his name is tony !!: ) If you have time to stop into the chop house definitely do so!!!
