Restaurant Review of Republic Chophouse in Green Bay, WI
By Patricia Summerfield
November 3, 2011
For dinner I stopped in Republic Chophouse which is a fine dining restaurant located in downtown Green Bay. It is an elegant upscale restaurant which is designed in a contemporary style. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The rich colors of chocolate browns and gold fill the place. As you walk in, there is a large bar with cocktail tables and with a few cozy enclosed areas in the lounge area. To the right is the dining area where there are comfortable booths for more of a private atmosphere. For a more open setting there are tables towards the front. They also have towards the back of the bar a glass enclosed private room for larger parties.
As I walked in the host asked me if I would like for him to take my coat and hang it up for me, and then he proceeded to sit me at a booth with a menu and informed me of my server’s name for the evening. My server came, introduced himself and brought me a glass of ice water. He asked if I would like a cocktail first before ordering; I ordered a glass of their house cabernet wine. After bringing my wine, which was a 6 ounce pour, he informed me of their specials. After perusing the menu I decided on ordering their 7 ounce flat iron steak for $30.00 which includes your choice of a either a garden salad or a cup of their du jour soup. I chose the salad. My server then brought a plate with three 2 ounce containers of whipped spreads for the bread basket. They were red pepper, cheddar cheese, and butter. The bread basket contained small slices of ciabatta, multigrain and white pretzel bread sticks. The breads were very fresh and tasted delicious with the different creamy spreads. My salad was served to me next and it consisted of mixed dark greens, with a red onion ring, tomatoes and cucumber. The salad was nicely chilled and very fresh. Soon after my entrée was served, it was presented on a white rectangular plate with a sprig of fresh rosemary off to the side of my steak. The 7 ounce flat iron steak was carved out of bone and prepared with a rosemary and wild mushroom ragout, finished with white truffle oil drizzle and fresh shaved parmesan cheese on top. It looked very appetizing but I noticed I did not have a steak knife. My server quickly brought me one. The sauce on the steak was the most stand out feature of this dish. The intertwined seasonings gave it an ambrosial flavor. The meat was semi tender of texture.
My server throughout the meal was pleasant and polite but I was surprised and annoyed when I received my bill. My house glass of wine cost $13.00 which is extremely pricy for a house brand even by large metropolitan city standards. I questioned my server on the price of my wine and he informed me that they carry two house wines, one is priced at $9.00 and the other for $13.00, and when someone orders the house wine they automatically get served the much higher priced one. I feel that this type of practice, for any type of establishment, is not forthcoming or in good faith to their patrons. So I am giving you the heads up when ordering your cocktails at Republic Chophouse.
Bar Review of Republic Chophouse in Green Bay, WI

It was after 11 PM and I just got home from a late night of work. My four legged furry friend greeted me at the door and we settled in on the couch for some cuddle time and TV. That's when I got a text message. Who in their right mind would text me at such a late hour? Just one of my favorite people, that's who. He said his crew was out and about and that I must meet up. After I promised to take my pooch on a hike the next day I took a hop, skip, and a jump downtown. Republic Chophouse to be more precise. It was just late enough that there was a front row spot just begging me to park my car in. I obliged and walked in to this evening's hotspot. There is a huge parking lot across the street and after a certain late night hour it's free to park in. And free is always a good thing.
Republic Chophouse reminds me of so very many upscale Chicago bars; beautiful dark wood throughout the bar part, very dim lights, candlelight, and a trendy clothed crowd clinging to fancy made drinks. The thing that reminds me I'm not 3 hours away, are the prices and the fact you can park and not owe your first born in order to do so.
This place offers a wine list, martini list, and a cocktail list. Wine prices start at $8 a glass and move on up. The martinis on the list are $8, as well as the specialty cocktails. Have no fear my beer loving Packer People, there are more than a couple beers to choose from on tap. Blue Moon, Guinness and Stella are to name a few faves while they carry more of the Bud and Miller products in the bottled variety.
When I arrived I had a shot and a pint of Stella waiting for me. I was in for quite a night. The bartender was super friendly and very nice to my very drunk friends. I tried to take a quick look around before I was swallowed up by my party monster friends and the Republic Chophouse is actually kind of spectacular looking. It really is. The exposed brick and the dark wood throughout the bar side added with the lit candles makes the atmosphere so warm and cozy. It would be perfect for a quiet date night or well, as I was privy to, a late party scene. There are also several rooms you can reserve or rent out for parties, business meetings or whatever event your little heart desires. Just make sure you call ahead and not just show up with your group in tow saying, "I'm here!"
My late night evening out with friends was a blast; thank you Republic Chophouse and thank you friends.
