Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our initial comparison is to Charlie's Steak House in Tampa, but here you'll be very pleasantly surprised with the value. Like any traditional steakhouse, you've got the dark woodwork, veteran bartenders, veteran servers and great service all around. The food here is excellent. My wife enjoyed the 8 oz. Filet, I had the Chilean Sea Bass. The chefs do wonderful things with seasonal vegetables and will mix things up daily based on freshest ingredients. We also enjoyed a Spanish red we hadn't tried before, AltoMoncayo/Veraton. Our waiter, David, was exceptional. An evening here is definitely worth it. Trust me, you can't make food this tasty at home.

We recently visited the Hanover Street Chophouse in Manchester and it is definitely the real deal for steak. From the stained wooded atmosphere to the excellent and well stocked bar, this is indeed an old-style steak house. We had, of course, two steaks, both were of very generous size and were prepared perfectly. Excellent service, great cocktails, and a nice appetizer, we would highly recommend this spot to anyone looking for a quality carnivore experience.

On the "Good-Meh-Suck" scale, the Hanover Street Chophouse is a solid Good. We had a solid meal with a few missteps. This is a Covid review and they did a fine job making us feel comfortable. The wait staff was great and attentive. As for the food, the Lobster Bisque was disappointing as it was a watery consistency. The Truffle Tater Tots were a big disappointment as they were like mashed potatoes in the shape of a tater tot. I would not get these again. As for the positives, the steaks were all good (my Delmonico was not the best I have ever had but was still OK). The Lobster Mac and Cheese was spot on and the Caesar Salad was good as well. We had a non-meat eater so they opted for the Chicken Parm which was huge and we were told that it was good. Overall, I have been to better steakhouses BUT this was a good place and we will return taking note based on our previous orders. I would give this 4.5 out of 5 if I could but I can't.

So. We had a table reserved tonight and anticipated an enjoyable evening. Things went awry as soon as we arrived. I have a handicap placard for medical reasons. So I saw an one blew handicap parking slot and pulled in and parked the car. I was immediately told I couldn’t park there and was told i had to give the valet the keys because all the parking slots in the parking lot were for valet - including the handicap slot! WRONG! It is a designated parking for handicap vehicle ONL! Not valet parking per NH RSA265:69 - ONLY a vehicle displaying the placard can park in that slot. The valet was doing his job as instructed but the restaurant violated the terms of the NH RSA. A violation, depending on jurisdiction, can cost around $300 for an individual and comes with a mandatory court appearance. Since this was a business decision whereby it instructed its employees to ignore the statute, I will be contacting the NH Department of Safety regarding the matter and lobby for a fine if $500 or more. The statutes are in place for a reason and no business can skirt the law for their own conveniences. The meal was it’s usual well prepared, presented and served, but it was tainted with the aggravation of the blatant disregard for the convenience of valet services. I gave it a 3-star versus the usual 4.5 or 5.0.

When you read the reviews you have to wonder what is it about this place that there are so many weird incidents? I was recently there dining with a business associate when a woman on a cell phone call at another table appeared to get into an argument with the person she was speaking to on the phone and literally started shouting and screaming into the phone. Realizing that everyone in the restaurant could hear and was looking at her she finally got up and took the phone and conversation to the ladies room but it didn't do any good as you could still hear her. We were surprised that the restaurant didn't ask her to stop the call or leave, but they did nothing. After about 10 minutes of listening to this ranting and raving, she finally came back to her table, where her food was waiting and was texting and balling over whatever happened on the call. Needless to say, she hardly ate anything. Aside from that, the food and service was excellent and so was the ambiance until the situation with the phone call, which was a real shame, and the only reason I gave this place 3 stars. To be honest, I don't know that I'd go back or recommend based on the incident that I experienced as well as some of the other crazy stuff that I've read in other reviews. This is probably the best restaurant in Manchester and it ain't cheap, so to put out this kind of money and have to tolerate these crazy types of situations is unacceptable.

Booked a reservation for my husband's birthday 3 weeks ago and left a vm on Sept 21 and birthday 25th that it was canceled and when I called told by the hostess that it was all booked for the night and was cancelled. She told me to make a reservation for a different day??? The owner, Steve Clutter, continued the costumer unfriendly thread. My husband and I will never return, sorry we went before.

I have been to the Capital Grille in Boston as well as others claiming to be the best in fine dining when it comes to steaks and meats. However, Hanover Street Chophouse surpasses them all by far. I had the most tender bone-in rib eye ever and my folks shared a filet mignon. The wine was paired perfectly. The music was live (piano), but at the far end of the restaurant near the bar, so we could hear it, but it didn't impede our conversation. Our waitresses, Emily and Rachel, were amazing; professional, amiable, courteous and attentive. The bathrooms were extremely clean. Tony, the manager, took the time to make his way over, introduce himself and make sure everything was to our satisfaction. This is one location I would highly recommend if you like steaks and are in the area. Prices run a bit high, but you get what you pay for.

My husband and I went for dinner for my birthday. Very disappointed. Our salad and App were ok, but it took a very long time for our entrees. Our server, Rachel seemed to be off and she was not attentive enough to our liking. For this caliber of a restaurant, we expect more. I ordered my filet medium. It was medium rare on the outsides and rare in the center. It was not edible for me, other than a few bites. Again, our server, Rachel was very inattentive to the situation and not empathetic at all. She asked to take it back and re-fire it. No! For the $$$... it should be perfect the first time. She did not relay our disgruntlements to the manager. That should have been done immediately. We had to ask for Tony to come to the table. He did and asked for us to come back. This is not the first time this has happened, and we gave it another try. We are done.

They made a special drink for me the last time we went, based on the ingredients I wanted to try! I asked for a half-sized second drink and they accommodated me. Of course, the food is always exceptional, and the service impeccable. I consider this one of the two or three top places to dine in the area.

Reserved a private room for a party for my husband for eight adults and 6 children for this Saturday. We asked if a server would wear a mask in the room as my grandchildren are unvaccinated and my husband has health issues. We received a call yesterday from the gm saying they were canceling our private room because of the request. I’m flabbergasted. This would have easily been a $2000 check. Been going here for years, never again.

The best steak I have ever had at a restaurant was at the Old Homestead in Atlantic City. Went to the chophouse on a Friday night. It was busy with a young crowd. Never had a Delmonico steak but heard a lot about them. It was on the menu so I could not pass up the chance. My son in law had a French onion soup the last time we went out to eat in another restaurant months ago. I envied him as he ate it. The Chophouse had it on the menu so of course I ordered it. It was full of onions with a great cheese on top. Definite home run! My delmonico came, a 16 oz. aged steak. Cooked to perfection. The taste was incredible! Juicy beautiful meat. Im a big eater but didn’t want to overdo it so took half home. The onion soup is a huge meal in itself. I finished it the next night and it was still delicious. My wife had the lamb and loved it. My daughter had the delmonico also and my son in law the filet mignon. We were a very happy family that night. On the drive home all we could talk about is the meals we ate. Thank you Hanover Chophouse! You and Old Homestead are the tops!

Not the special dinner we hoped for. We were hoping for top notch high quality steaks and appetizers but only received average food. I have been to many great steak houses in NJ, NYC, Vegas, the Caribbean and the list goes on. I honestly recommend Texas Roadhouse over this place for better steaks and way better value.

During a Christmas visit to visit our son, we wanted to go somewhere special. The Hanover Chop House seemed to fill the bill… and it did! This was a most pleasant experience from the moment we walked in, our waiter was very attentive and she was busy!! Steaks truly outstanding. It was a Tuesday 2 days after Christmas and reservations were needed. We had two times available. I thought that they may be short staffed with the holidays. That was not the case; fully staffed and very busy. This is a wonderful special place. The water view is a bonus.

This certainly is currently the best restaurant in Manchester, and likely in New Hampshire. But like a few reviews have noted, there is a perceptible decline in value occurring. For us it was with the service. In the future we'll likely drive to Burlington, MA instead of Manchester for fine dining.
