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.

  • Excellent Food But Kitchen Was Slow

    Food and service was great. Long wait for dinner to be served. 8pm reservation but food not out until 10pm on what appeared to be a slow Wednesday in the restaurant. Been here several times and never had an issue and will go back but management needs to make sure orders are delivered more timely.

  • Great steak
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/26/2014
    I thoroughly enjoyed my dining experience at the Chophouse. I had the t-bone steak which delicious and cooked to the perfect temperature which I ordered. however the roasted garlic cauliflower could been better. I felt it was a bit on the dry side and needed sauce, perhaps A hollandaise. the bread served with the meal was very good. the service was also very good, friendly waitresses. as a side note the background noise from the slot machines was a little distracting from The dining experience

  • Poor Service for the Price ...
    Noanie
    Dined on 8/24/2014
    The food was very good (although Ruth's Chris is still our 'best pick' for steak) but for the price tag the service was truly abysmal. After seating we were promised a bread basket. Time passes. Eventually a waitress arrives to take our dinner orders. I mentioned that no one had taken our drink order as yet. She did that and at the same time took our dinner order. Time passes. I see our drinks on the bar waiting to be picked up. Time passes. My started salad arrives ... before my drink. Finally the waitress sees the drinks sitting on the bar and they arrive. Bread basket wandered to our table some time after all that. For $150 including tip, I expect service and food to come in the correct order. Think twice.

    The purpose of the visit to this restaurant was to celebrate a birthday. We are a group of over fifty plus women who enjoy good socializing. The service was terrible we waited over an hour for the food. The waitress never came to check in on us. The manager did take the price of five steaks off the bill. It was not about the price. It was about the staff not providing the service promised. The reservations was last weekend in the sand Casino.

    This was my first time at this restaurant. I had eaten previously at Emeril's Italian Kitchen but wasn't sure what to expect here. The wine list is notable and the servers are very knowledgeable. The calamari was very good. It was in a spicey tomato sauce with peppers. The sauce is in the bottom of the bowl so mix it up before you eat it. We both had Caesar salads which were more like a lunch-size for me and very very good. Sharp parm strip on top was a nice touch and ground pepper was offered. I had the Touranados of Beef and Scallops which was prepared perfectly. My husband had the filet and lobster. While the lobster type was not his favorite, it was prepared correctly, just the stringy type not the solid white meat type.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010VIP
    Dined on 8/20/2014
    I had read several reviews before going. Now I am surprised that not many mention the noise level in this restaurant. They might as well have put the tables right on the casino floor. “DING DING DING DING WHEEL… OF… FORTUNE!!!!!” The food and service was OK, not great at these prices. The 18 0z $48 strip was ordered rare and came out medium but we kept it because the quality was good enough to bear overcooking. My biggest complaint was the side of “white truffle chips” with parmesan. I asked before ordering how they were prepared. I was told they are like potato chips, shaved thin, fried and seasoned with cheese. Now, I know that truffles are expensive and I did not expect a large portion for $14 but I did not expect potato chips.

    The wine list is extensive. Appetizer and steaks were amazing. The atmosphere great for a romantic date. The service was just the right amount of attentive. The only thing wrong was the cauliflower side dish was under cooked and over powered with nutmeg and the fingerling potatoes were not as delicious as the menu description would have you believe, but who really goes there for the sides? Overall, a great dining experience.

    My boyfriend and I were celebrating the 2nd anniversary of our first date. We were 15 minutes late being that we were not familiar with the area. We didn't have to wait long to be seated and our servers waited on us well. As soon as we sat down, they told us happy anniversary. The ambience was great, we felt a little overdressed...lol. The food was great, I had filet mignon and my boyfriend had rack of lamb. At the end we were surprised with a plate with 4 godiva chocolates with fruit and "happy anniversary" written in chocolate and a candle. What a way to end a great date. We will be coming back, such a great place.

    The steaks are great and seared perfectly. Prime cuts are super tender and flavorful, didn't try any dry aged cuts. This is not a cheap dining experience. Be prepared for ~$150/couple with an app, a shared side, and a couple drinks.

    My wife and I ate here for a nice evening out away from the kids. The ambience is very nice and the service was top notch. The prices are pretty high, but everything is extra. Salad... extra, sides...extra. The wines are ridiculously expensive. We bought a half bottle of the cheapest wine for $25. They say you get 2.5 glasses out of it... no. You get 1 each. The salads ($9 a piece) were quite large but not very flavorful. The side dishes are made to split. They were good but again at $9 a piece. The filet was good, but not over the top. When you pay $38 for just the filet you would hope for the best. It's a nice restaurant, but you easily spend $100. Save yourself some $ and go to Outback where you can get more for less.

    Out of first wine selection. Common Pinot Noir and under $100, forced us into the higher dollar section, would have expected consideration. Service was suspect, staff wasn't on the same page. Had to ask for an ordered side dish, one server was getting us water the other asking us if we wanted coffee.

    Food was good but not outstanding, as one might expect from a higher level restaurant. My wife appreciated the smaller 6 oz filet mignon which was cooked to her liking, but my braised beef was a bit dry, it was tender but lacking the juices that characterizes braising. Disappointing that there was no beer available on draft (especially at a steakhouse) and they didn't stock my favorite after-dinner cordial of Harveys Bristol Cream. Service was excellent and they remembered my wife's birthday with a birthday greeting when we were seated and a nice little presentation with desert - very nice touch

    This was our first visit. It was our 24th wedding anniversary and we wanted to do something different. The Chop House was recommended to us by friends. We arrived early and were seated right away. The wait staff, the food, the ambience, all perfection. The timing between the delivery of every plate was perfect. The wait staff asked if we were celebrating anything special and presented us with a plate of chocolate dipped mini cannoli's with "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate on the plate! Nice touch! We will definitely be back!
