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.

    My wife and I celebrated a special occasion and were very pleased with our dining experience at Emeril's Chop House. We started with a relaxing drink at the bar. We were seated in a timely fashion. From start to finish, the service flowed impecably. Wine glasses were filled in a timely manner. Appetizers and main course were also presented without any rush. Our steaks were done to perfection and exactly how we ordered them. They also had an extensive wine list, which we chose a fantastic Cabernet. I did think the price was a little steep, but worth it and matched well with the fantastic cuts of beef that we enjoyed. If you want to have a great meal and gamble, dine at Emerils' Chop House and stay at the Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem!

    Have been to the Sands many times but this was my first time at Emeril's Chop House. Extremely satisfied would be an understatement. I had the 26 ounce porterhouse and my wife had the veal chop. They were cooked to perfection and the service was outstanding. Well worth the money - I will be back.

    We went for my husband's birthday and arrived about 15 minutes before our reservation. We were told that they were running a little behind, but that was fine, we'd gotten seats at the bar. We weren't seated until 45 minutes AFTER our reservation time, but the staff could not have been friendlier or more apologetic. There had been a wedding reception that had run over. Our experience was very pleasant and we would definitely go back for another special occasion.

    The food decent just not sure it was the "Wow" or "bam" we expected from eating at other Emeril restaurants for the price. The beet salad was so good. The French onion soup was average. The beef tips were overlooked on one side with a lot of rub & the collared greens were very soggy. The fillet was good but a little more charred in the outside than one would like for medium. Service however was exemplary.

    Gabling in casinos is always exciting if not rewarding. To find an outstanding restaurant and have an excellent meal is therefore sometimes an uplifting mood changer or, if you're winning, a celebratory event. In either case, the food at Emeril's Chop House at the Sands Casino in Bethlehem, PA. hits the jackpot. Delicious and up to all expectations. The biscuits in the bread basket deserve special mention. On our next trip to this venue I'll have the best of all possible dilemmas: whether to have the same dish again or further explore the menu.

    I received a complimentary dinner for two from the Sand casino for Emeril's Chop House. A reservation was made weeks ago and unfortunately it was not documented that it was a complimentary dinner. The staff was more than gracious to accommodate us and we were seated immediately upon checking in. The waitress was pleasant and the gentleman that assisted was so pleasant. I was impressed on all that was included in a complimentary dinner. The time spent in the casino was horrible but the dinner was fantastic. Food, staff and service were great!

    We actually travelled 70 miles to try this restaurant as we had eaten in Emeril's restaurant in Florida and Nevada and it was worth the trip. The service was exceptional and the food was delicious and plentiful. The wine list was extraordinary. We were kept advised on the status of our courses. We were not rushed out though the restaurant became quite crowded.

    As always it amazes me how the service and food can be so amazing at the table but the hostess group can be sooooo bad. My date and I arrived for our 7:30 reservation at 7:15 and were told "they were running on time, could we please have a seat in the lounge?" No worries we got a drink at the bar and were chatting at 7:50 they still hadnt come and got us. I went over to ask and was given a huff by the hostess. when I asked if there was a problem she just looked up at me and said it will be a couple minutes. I looked around it was a Wednesday night and over half the place was empty. When I asked how long a couple more minutes was she said "fine we can seat you now". emeril's really needs to get some better service going upfront.

    This was the second time I've visited Emeril's Chop House and it did not disappoint. I've been to quite a few different high-end steak houses and without question the flavor of the ribeye at Emeril's wins hands down. Phenomenal food. Outstanding service. Only the noise level is a negative.

    First we waited 30 minutes for the very slow waitstaff to take our order. The appetizer was mediocre. My beet salad came with beets that still had the root and other beets that had brown spots. The entree they brought me was not what I ordered and when I finally received the pasta and cheese it was oily and the cheese sauce had separated. Finally I ordered the banana cream pie, which I had before at Emeril's in New Orleans and was amazing. This version tasted like it was a boxed frozen pie. I could only eat a few bites it was so bad. I can't believe Emeril allows his name to be associated with this place.

And the filets we had were done perfectly and just melted in your mouth. My hat's off to everyone at the Chop House, you do an amazing job.

    For was not the best calamari tough and chewy. Soup very good. Caesar salad ok but have had better jar dressing. Pasta had very little crab and 3 medium sized shrimp. Not hot just warm. Tuna was supposed to be seared cooked ok but the sesame seeds seemed to be not seared with the tuna and no seasoning what so ever. Also noodles underneath were just warm not hot. On both dishes we were warned the plates were very hot but the food was not. Very disappointing expected to be much better. Maybe that is why it was very easy to get a Friday night dinner reservation. On a plus the wait staff was very good.

    Food was good, I tried the house Cosmoplitan coctail. It was terrible. Changed to Barcardi & Rum. Satisfied with my new cocktail but was still charged for the Cosmo that I turned away. We were seated in front of the wine cabinet. All night we had the waiters butt in our face as they bent over to open the cabinet. Very uncomfortable and unsightly.

Cooked beautifully, and tasted delicious. We didn't get a side this time, as it was too much to eat last time we were here. I definitely will be returning.

    Atmosphere very cold, boring, uninteresting. Food is pricey but that is ok if food is good but this is not the case. We ordered one filet which was ok, nothing special and one pasta dish. Faralle with shrimp, lobster and king crab. Honestly pretty lame..lobster overcooked, shrimp very fishy tasting crab was good but overall the dish was bland somewhat tasteless and below average. I've been to all three Emerills restaurants in Sands Casino and really have nothing positive to say about any of them..Sorry Emerill 3 strikes and you are out..If I had one positive the martinis were very good.
