This Beloved Milwaukee Steakhouse Is Ready to Reopen

The Milwaukee ChopHouse is reopening this weekend.

The Downtown steak and seafood restaurant, which has been closed since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic in March 2020, will officially reopen for business on Friday.

Located in the Hilton Milwaukee City Center, 633 N. Fifth St., the Milwaukee ChopHouse will return to its roots to offer its classic steakhouse menu with a contemporary twist. Guests can once again enjoy their favorite dishes, like Wagyu carpaccio, lobster mac ‘n cheese and Strauss lamb chops as well as its selection of wet- and dry-aged steaks, various seafood options and a vegan and vegetarian selection.

Some dishes and cocktails will also incorporate fresh honey from the restaurant’s rooftop beehives.



What’s Brew City’s best? We’ve picked 16 of our favorite Milwaukee craft beers for a March Madness-style tournament, but it’s up to you to pick the winner! Will it be bright and hoppy? Dark and malty? A zippy lager? Every one is worthy of the title; who will claim the sudsy crown?

The restaurant’s Chef’s Table experience, which takes place in the Chophouse’s working kitchen and features multi-course meals paired with choice of cocktails or wine, will also return for guests who book in advance.

The Milwaukee ChopHouse is managed by Marcus Restaurant Group, which is part of Marcus Hotels & Resorts, a division of Milwaukee-based Marcus Corp. The restaurant focuses on locally-sourced products and sustainability by expanding the Hilton’s own vegetable and herb gardens, as well as participating in programs to reduce food waste and increase recycling.

The Milwaukee ChopHouse will be open Tuesday through Saturday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. The restaurant will be closed on Sunday and Monday. Reservations are recommended and can be made online.
