Anyone been to 801 Chophouse in KC?

Planning a trip to KC this weekend and wondering about this restaurant as it is not far from our hotel.

  1. Yes, I have been. They also have locations in Des Moines (original) and Omaha - I have been to the KC and Des Moines locations.

    It's a prime steakhouse, so you will pay a premium, but the steak is quite good. Everything is served a la carte, and the blue cheese potatoes seem to be a hit, although they weren't as strong in blue cheese flavor as I would have hoped. I wasn't impressed by the seafood, so I would avoid it, especially with Bristol next door. Great wine list, wonderful service and ambiance. In Des Moines, they recently implemented a pretty stellar happy hour on food, so if you are looking for sliders, shrimp cocktail, oysters, that could be a good, inexpensive option.

      I've been to the one here in Des Moines numerous times. It's good but not world-class and not as good as it was 10 years ago.

    2. Thank you. We will most likely go to Bristol and to another, better steakhouse another night. You've been very helpful.
