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.

    Overall a good dining experience, however, the food wasn't as good as I expected. For the price I would have rather gone to Shula's or another steak restaurant.

    Four of us were there on Sunday night. We were treated royally and the food and wine were mostly delicious. One friend had the same dish I ordered, scallops and beef tips. She loved it, but I found the scallops too salty. Otherwise, it was lovely! I look forward to my next visit.

    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.

    We have gone to Emeril's Chop House about 20 times and have always had a terrific experience! The staff and food are terrific. The food is always cooked to perfection. I highly recommend this for a special occasion or business meeting with a client. You will not be disappointed! We will go again in a month or two.

    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.

    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.
