It was my wife’s 34th birthday and they fulfilled the request I made. It was amazing with a breathtaking view outside. I was really impressed with the quality of food and service we received.

Edmonton
About the restaurant
CHOP was created for people who love sharing, connecting and everything steak. We are proud to offer a menu that shares our commitment to sustainable beef sourcing, serving high-quality cuts of 100% Canadian beef. It isn’t just the meat that’s special – it’s also how we cook it. Our Montague broiler cooks at up to 1800 °F, giving a beautiful crust and flavour to every steak! We slow roast our prime rib in a humidity-controlled oven, keeping it mouth-watering and tender. And we put this level of care into each of our hand-crafted drinks, and from-scratch dishes, including plant-based and seafood options, with something for everyone to enjoy. All of this quality comes with friendly hospitality in warm and energetic rooms. Open for lunch, happy hour, dinner and late-night!

My wife and I always have a great time at RBB. Excellent food and ambiance. It was our servers first day and she was a little bit shy and quiet but still provided great service.

Clam chowder and French dip was excellent. All the food was excellent for everyone. They used to have Sunday brunch. They should bring it back. Service was good.
