"THE POINT" pays homage to the Pleasure Point area of Santa Cruz in which we are located. A landmark for over 35 years (formerly portola house) has been reborn into The Point Chophouse.
The Point Chophouse & Lounge is a neighborhood restaurant where generations of local families, friends and visitors to the area meet to celebrate in a casual setting. Whether seated in the cozy, quiet booth of the dinning room or choosing the more festive lounge and bar area atmosphere; we invite you to enjoy. Our selection of good honest food, local draft beer and wine and premium cocktails offers something for everyone...even the little ones.
We consider ourselves a traditional steak "chop" house with a emphasis on our version of California comfort food. We present our cuisine in a simple casual form, we believe the food should speak for itself. Our food is prepared with local, fresh and seasonable foods. We offer house-made desserts that rotate seasonally. Whenever possible we source sustainable food services and local vendors and we use only USDA Prime Aged 100% Black Angus beef.
We look forward to cooking for you and whatever you choose to eat we promise it will be our best."
