A word from Emeril's Chop House at the Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem
In the casual and comfortable setting of Emeril's Chop House, the warm design evokes the timeless craftsmanship of American industry– bronze metal ribboned screens outline the entrance, earth tone colors of leather & beige mohair furnishings contrast with the restaurant’s transparent reflective surfaces & circular crystal pendant light fixtures. The chef’s food bar has a leather panel front & hand finished white-washed oak millwork, & overlooks the open-action kitchen. Two curved wine cellars with polished steel wine racks separate the private dining areas from the rest of the space, & are encircled with a splash of red on the custom carpets. The restaurant’s combination of craftsmanship & elegance is perfectly reflected in the original artwork by local artist Michael Kessler, who achieves his effect with layer upon layer of acrylic paint on wood panel & relies on natural gesture to create his organic forms.

    Enjoyed dinner with another couple. Service was top notch, timely, friendly and not intruding, nor rushing. We felt comfortable staying for 2 hours. Some familiar dishes with just a surprising twist, like the bacon on the wedge salad and the truffle chips...the steak of course was delicious! All four of us enjoyed our choices. Just lovely!

  • Disappointing Anniversary Dinner

    Dined on 11/19/2014
    To celebrate our anniversary,we customarily go to the Mohegan Sun for an overnight and dine at Ruth Chris. This year we decided to go to the Sands and dine at Emeril's Chop House. We were seated and greeted by two servers, one whom we never saw again until she brought our check. We each ordered the Caesar Salad; one steak special and one fish special. The salads were tasteless. The steak dish was well presented but tasteless. The fish was just plain lousy. And after being served, no one returned to check on us! Having said this, we certainly will not return. There is absolutely no comparison or substitute for Ruth Chris!

    We have dined at the chop house before and have enjoyed our visit. This time we did enjoy the atmosphere and the waiters were very good however, we felt the food was not as good as usual and for the price not as good a value as the Italian table, for example. We will probably dine there again however, we were somewhat disappointed with what was a fair to good experience in a place where we expected exceptional, especially at the prices paid. D. Cetani

    As a steak house, the chef should accommodate the customer as the meal is requested. When a person prefers their steak well done, it should be well done regardless of how the chef likes it.

    My husband and I had dinner at the Chophouse after an afternoon of gambling and were looking forward to a relaxing dinner.....my husband ordered the bean and tomato soup which was puréed and a little bland but his main course of salmon was cooked perfectly and in his words "perfect". I ordered the beef tips and shrimps over a bed of mushroom risotto with a drizzle of arugula pesto. It was one of the nights specials and it was delish....my only complaint was that it was served in a bowl and had a difficult time cutting the beef tips....We only had a glass of wine each as we had a 2 hour drive back to NY....I would highly recommend this restaurant and plan on going back... PS the bar made me the best cappuccino ever...

    My husband and I were looking forward to a nice dinner out. We arrived on time and we were seating right away. The waiter wasn't very friendly. He didn't come back to check on us very often. The worst part was the long wait for our food. It took 45 minutes for our dinner to arrive!! This was way to long to wait for our meal. The waiter never came over to apologize for the long wait or even explain why. I don't know if our food had just been sitting and waiting to be delivered. My steak was dry and not that warm. The table we were sitting at had air conditioning blowing right down on us, so I was freezing the whole time even though I had a sweater on. I have dinned here before, so I was very disappointed at the service.

    We recently ate at the chop house during our stay at the Sand's casino in Bethlehem Pennsylvania. Assuming that the meal would be large, I ordered just the blue cheese wedge salad and French onion soup, thinking that I might sneak a bite of my wife's cowboy ribeye steak. The waiter brought it out, having had the kitchen cut it in half for us to share. It was huge, and more importantly, it was delicious! It was done medium Pittsburgh style. Might be the best steak ever had! Only criticism we have is that it was a little too dark in the restaurant, and it was a bit cold sitting near the window. Considering everything else though it was a 100% enjoyable experience. Understandably pricey, but worth every penny. GO there!!!

    Our reservation was at 8:15 and we didn't get seated until 9. The wedge salad was good. I got the 9 oz filet which was not very tasty. Thankfully they give me 3 different dipping sauces but without them it was average at best. My wife got the salmon and the next day her comment to me while she was eating her left overs was "I always say I wish I could make salmon like this. Last night was this first night, I didn't say that. I make better salmon." We also got a side of asparagus which was way too salty. In summary the food, was fair but for the price I expected more. If you live in the area like I won't recommend this place when there are so many other good choices in the area. We won't be returning.

    Emeril's Chop House is the "one and only" restaurant I visit when I decide to treat myself to dinner while at the SANDS. The ambience is welcoming and comfortable yet gourmet and special. Each dish's recipe is designed thoughtfully and with a heart for the culinary art. No matter what I choose from the menu, I am never disappointed and am allowed to savor the dish which is complimented with a very fine glass of wine. I would highly recommend a visit to Emeril's Chop House at the SANDS.

Was by-far one of the best steaks we've had in quite a while. Best bring your appetite with you when you go....at 22ozs., we had to split it & still had a filling meal.

Sorry but emmerils chophouse isn't le bec fin. The service was a little slow maybe by design but efficient. The food was good . A little overpriced but expected in casino venue.

    we were looking forward to the well touted restaurant. it is not inexpensive by any stretch of the imagination. we weren't looking for a bargain, we were looking for a culinary experience. when you see prices like that you expect the experience and the level of food to be just as extraordinary. just not so. the food was acceptable and the service was VERY slow. they were not very busy, it was a sunday night. i asked for a glass of chardonnay 3 times, which i finally received 1 hour later. our food took 1 1/2 hours to come out to the table with prompting by us because we had tickets to a show. we thought two hours was a satisfactory amount of time to have dinner before a show. continued below...

    Our experience at Emeril's Chop House was perfect. The atmosphere, attention to service and detail makes us want to return again and again. We began with perfectly executed cocktails at the bar prior to being seated. Our starters were the James River Fried Oysters and Prime Steak Tartar. The oysters were fried perfectly and combined Andouille and three cheese béchamel. The steak tartar rich and flavorful. We ordered the Creekstone Filet Mignon and the Prime New York Strip and both were cooked precisely medium rare along with the creamed spinach. We ended with the New York Style Cheese Cake which was smooth as silk. in addition, I was treated to a slice of birthday cake since we were celebrating my birthday.

    Wait staff very friendly, knowledgeable about the menu items, and attentive. Cocktails were unique and inventive, as well as tasty. Food was well prepared and served in a timely manner. Had the cowboy ribeye and loaded fingerling potatoes, both were delicious (steak was pricey, but worth it, I think). The restaurant's interior was attractive, clean and neat. The only negative was that the view from our seating location was not very appealing--you are looking out at the valet parking line, and beyond that some rather dull landscaping and city streetscape; still, it was nice to be seated near a window that offered an exterior view, which was a relief from all the sensory overload brought on by the casino environment. Still a great night out.

    Let's start by arriving in the cocktail area and wanting to have a drink before dinner. Waiter told me "this is their busy night so can't provide service to our table." $36 for a dozen tiny oysters. The rib-eye was paper thin and way over-seasoned. Crab leg was ice cold despite being told it would come out steamed. The three shrimp side dish was a $14 joke. Waited 15 minutes before out plates were cleared and the exorbitant check (for the poor service and food) was brought. Next time we will have a slice of pizza at the food court.
