New Chophouse in Greeley

I called at 6pm to see if we needed reservations and was told we don't take reservations until 8pm and we do walk ins until then. Well we get there and lo and behold they do take reservations. So the older hostess with the interesting hair ( see review below) starts patronizing me and being a bit condescending about getting us a table. She was a bit taken aback when i refused the table in the front doorway and said we would wait for a better table. They quickly got us one and we sat down.

First of all I expect a place the has and old time steak house atmosphere and old photos on the wall to have some kind of cocktail list. After asking for 2-3 cocktails all of which they couldn't make my companions and i ordered basic martinis.

I got the Cesar salad and they ordered the Wedge, not bad acceptable. I ordered potato and horseradish encrusted salmon, one of us ordered the short ribs and our friend ordered another salmon dish. All well prepared, not a generous portion but not stingy. My side was the collard greens which were great, tasty, not over cooked, nice tangy hint of vinegar but..............they didnt drain the oil/grease from them so my plate was floating with bacon fat which soaked the salmon. The waitress wondered why I had my plate tipped up on a knife so i told her to drain the fat.

Over all it was okay, but I think the prices are too high for Greeley, fine for FTC or Denver but were not in those places. I wish them well but I miss Harvest which had amazing food, amazing prices
( remember the half chicken for 13.00 with 2 sides?).

One final thing yes 2 sides, would it kill you to offer a veg and a starch with the 19.00 salmon?
