The Chophouse on Bankhead offers a casual but delicious dining experience. We provide prime steaks, fresh seafood, pastas, fresh vegetables and desserts all brought in fresh from local providers when available. There is also a large selection of wines and a full bar. Our menu is on par with many restaurants found in larger cities but at more East Texas prices.
Brad and Stephanie Hyman
Brad and Stephanie met and are graduates of Texas A&M University. They have 2 sons Chase and Cade who are both graduates of Mount Vernon I.S.D. and currently enrolled at Tarleton State University and Texas A&M University. Brad has worked in the crop protection industry for his entire professional career. He is Executive Vice President and manages the U.S. business for global chemical manufacturer Nufarm, based in Melbourne, Australia. Stephanie has worked in the pharmaceutical industry throughout her career and is a Senior Executive Rep with Merck & Company where she has been for 24 years. Upon moving back to Brad’s hometown 11 years ago, Brad and Stephanie began investing in buildings in the historical district in downtown Mount Vernon, including the G.P. Hill Building, that after extensive renovation and conversion to a restaurant, is now home to the Chophouse.
Brad & Stephanie had a vision that Mount Vernon had much to offer as a destination for dining, tourism, etc., but that there would be a journey to undertake as the local economy was struggling as are many other small rural communities around the country. The Chophouse is continued evidence of the success Mount Vernon is having now attracting numerous restaurants, bed and breakfasts, live music, the Don Meredith Museum, and the list is growing. They are excited to have the Chophouse team here in Mount Vernon and know that they will deliver the best customer experience in Northeast Texas!
The Chophouse seats 75-100 and provides a dining experience to include appetizers, soups/salads, main entrees to include steaks, seafood, pastas, deserts, wine and spirits.
