Amazing food and service!
Had a wonderful brunch which was $18 that included a soup or salad and an entree. Fabulous! And the service, as always, is outstanding!

We both got the sea bass and we both commented throughout the meal that is was the BEST sea bass we have eaten. Delicious! It's a shame it is so pricey,so we will save it for a special occasion.

I took my wife my wife out to dinner for our 3rd anniversary to The Chophouse and I was really impressed. Our waitress was very friendly and checked on us at the proper times. Our food was amazing!! I had the Kona encrusted steak which the waitress recommended and it was out of this world. I got to witness the respect they have for their customers first hand. I watched the food server get our dessert and noticed something out it. He showed it to our waitress who then took it to the head chef and it was corrected to her standards. I like that they take that much pride and quality in their service. I recommend this to everyone.

We brought friends we hadn't seen in a fairly long while, so it was a special occasion. We were seated on the beautiful new enclosed deck overlooking the lake as the sun had just gone down. From the beginning, service was exceptional - attentive, thorough and professional. The rock shrimp appetizer was great, and the caprese salad featured fresh, locally grown tomatoes drizzled with a perfect balsamic dressing. We sampled beef and seafood dishes, and the salmon and Chilean sea bass were to die for, glazed and cooked perfectly. My martini was terrific as usual, and there was a new beer my husband tried (forget the name) with a 10% alcohol content - really good. Our friends were so impressed; I know they will want to come back. Bravo!

What a Spot!!
At least two couple-friends love the place for its fine food, so for our 35th anniversary we decided to give it a try -- we were not disappointed.
Were seated on the enclosed porch, a great view overlooking a scenic lake, with the option of dinner indoors at a quieter booth or table -- given the view and mild weather, we stayed put.
She enjoyed the 8 oz filet, I had a Red Snapper, both of which were done perfectly. For dessert, the Chocolate Lava cake, not to be missed.
A fine evening, and we will definitely go back, hopefully soon. One slight cloud: the area became progressively more boisterous, and the room noisier and difficult for conversation -- we could have decamped for the interior, but we were loath to give up the view.

Love the new bar
Loved sitting@ the new bar enjoying a cocktail and the amazing view before dinner.
Dinner was fabulous as was the service. We will be back soon!

One of the best restaurants in south jersey. Had a nice Sunday night dinner (although place is generally empty on Sunday evenings). Only complaint was the corn on the cob that was served with dinner. Looked more like feed corn and I would never serve it! I asked for a replacement and it was just as bad. They definitely needed someone in the kitchen that knows what fresh produce should like like, especially when the best corn of the year is in season right now! This issue is rare however, at this place:)

Great place for a romantic
Great place for a romantic dinner. Great view. We are already planning to go again. The menu has lots of options if you are not looking for a full meal.

The Chophouse never disappoints! I had friends in from Baltimore and they were thrilled with the restaurant choice. They loved the outdoor seating and the view. The giant bar and friendly bartenders were great. We moved to our table which was outdoors as well but was climate controlled and no bugs! The service was great! We were catching up a lot and were not ready to order which was not a problem at all.
The food was delicious! The Kona rub ruined me to steak any other way!!! I don't know what they put in that but it was so good - I need it now!!!!

Went for happy hour and sat on the patio. It was a beautiful evening, not too hot, and I had the Crab and Heirloom Salad which was loaded with lump crabmeat and, even though I thought there should have been more or a variety of heirloom tomatoes, it was a very enjoyable dish on an early summer evening.

Better than Capital Grille
Went here for our anniversary after just having been to Capital Grille in July. In our opinion, Chop House won on all fronts. Capital Grille is a little more formal, but menus and pricing are comparable. Raw oysters were great, as was my wife's caprese salad, which was different with grilled tomatoes. Wedge salad is always a favorite of mine and this one was great. We have learned at places like this to just got the steak plain, no fancy sauces etc. Let the steak do the talking. My cowboy steak was done perfectly & very flavorful, but a bit chewy in spots. Wife had the filet oscar which she also had at Capital Grille. She said the Chop House was much better with fresher everything. No room for dessert, and service was perfectly paced.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a wonderful Saturday evening dinner at the Chop House. The food, the waiter, the view, all were spectacular. I hope I will have an opportunity in the near future to dine there again. Everything was so perfect and clean and all the wait staff was extremely helpful, polite and friendly.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
been there a few times this summer and always enjoyable.

Food and service were excellent. Did get a little loud as evening progressed and sometimes difficult to have conversation with dining companions. Overall ambience was great!

Wife's Birthday Festival
Second time visiting. Food was great, made formamemorable evening.

We had the most delicious steaks, fantastic wine and attentive service. Will return again, and again, and again. Nicholas was superb in caring for our dining needs.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I visited this resturant to cross it off our list. Let me tell you, this place is fantastic. The service was mindblowing. Our waiter, Bob, treated as if we were the only people in the place. The personilzed service was outstanding. The food was some of the best I've ever had, and we've dined all over the country. I highly reccomend The ChopHouse for any occasion, especially special occasions. I would love to return with a group.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice view of lake and great food. The Cesar salad with crab was incredible with at least 10 large lumps of crab meat. Also very well balanced cocktails. The chophouse martini was great!!
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
I/and all of my friends continue to come back because tis consistent and great quality. employees are kind and friendly and the age group is perfect and the drinks are always a plus!!!

I really appreciate that we
I really appreciate that we have a very nice, special occasion restaurant in our neighborhood. Actually, it's good for special occasions and other occasions, too. I love the addition but wish it were less noisy when it's crowded. We ate in the main dining room and it was perfect.
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food! Great service! Excellent wine list! manager must have come over 3 times to check on our table, not that it was necessary because the service was amazing!..
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Calling it "noisy" is a misnomer. It was difficult to talk to one another without shouting due to the noise level of the people sitting at the fire-pit less than 5' away. Lots of trolling going on with the drinking adding to the increasing noise level. Perhaps we should have eaten inside away from the noisy pick-up crowd. (Don't know if it was any quieter there, however.) Friday night at 6:15 was perhaps not the best time to enjoy the fantastic food that we ate. We'll definitely go back, but we'll certainly choose a week night or lunch.
I might also mention that the valet parker lost our car!!! We had to find it ourselves by walking around the parking area.
THE FOOD WAS GREAT!
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Steaks great. Chilliean sea bass not good. Rubbery . Cob salad bacon not crisp but chewy . Appetizers great. Cheese cake just ok.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
ChopHouse has always been
ChopHouse has always been a favorite of ours. The Filet MIgon has never dissappointed us. Always prepared perfect. Our evening included Lobster Bisque, Oysters, Lyonanaise Potatoes and Garlic Spinach. Topped off with cheesecake and pureed strawberries. Our servers were very attentive and spot on when it came to each coarse. We also got to enjoy the new addition which overlooks the lake. Great ambience. We look forward to returning.

Great steak, great service!!
We had a great reception upon entering the restaurant. Everyone is very friendly at the front. We were offered the opportunity to sit outside or inside in the dining room. Because my wife gets cold easily, we opted to sit inside. Our waiter Nicholas was outstanding!! He provided recommendations and was attentive. The other three or four service staff - clearing the table, bringing items, filling water glasses - were non-obtrusive but diligent in their work. Two of us had the 8 oz filet, cooked to perfect medium temp. My wife had the Kona crusted sirloin, also very tasty and cooked perfectly. My daughter had the lobster mac and cheese, also very good. This is probably the best steakhouse in Southern NJ.

Great place to have a family gathering. Food was great.. Dessert was a nice way to end the meal.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent but expensive. Bread
Excellent but expensive. Bread was a little tough, way beyond croucant. Restaurant was not crowded. Service was prompt and efficient. All in all a great place to dine.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Menu was of a typical high end steakhouse. The creme brûlée was amazing. The only thing I would not recommend was the lyonnaise potatoes they were a little oily and not as crispy as we would have liked. We went thereto celebrate and anniversary and the bill was $150 plus tip without drinks so its pricey.

Good Business Meeting Locale
Chophouse has solid food coupled with great service. I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere which made for an effective meeting. It was not noisy-- and the outdoor bar is great. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxed atmosphere for clients outside of the office.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I don't go
My husband and I don't go out to dinner often. We decided to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary at the Chop House (a huge splurge for us) and we could not have been happier with our choice! The food was amazing and we had a fun, sweet and attentive server!. We were lucky to sit out on the enclosed deck which was very romantic and relaxing. Thanks Chop House!

I really love this place.

Best Restaurant in South Jersey
Chop House always has the best food and great service. The steaks are perfect and the spinach w/ garlic and mashed potatoes with truffle oil are our favorites.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Arm and a Leg
Everything was great until we got the bill. I know it is an upscale restaurant and you can expect to pay for that, but the prices are really over-the-top. Thank God I had a substantial gift certificate to help pay the bill or I would have to skip the car payment this month. I would recommend only for special occasions and when you have a generous gift certificate to help augment the bill.

One Place We Visit Every Year
We go here every year for our anniversary. It's close to home, their food is better quality than many "downtown Philly" steak restaurants but with a much nicer ambience and convenient free valet parking. Service is always great, always have someone else walking around asking how everything is, very helpful in making recommendations, and always have great seasonal additions to all categories on the menu! Try their specialty rubs for steaks and their specialty cocktails.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were seated promptly
We were seated promptly
Waitress - Dawn was friendly, informative and very pleasant and efficient
The food was excellent
but we were a little disappointed - it was restaurant week and their restaurant week menu did not have one steak or chop as a choice
otherwise - very pleasant
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Resturant is a bit pricey but the food is fresh tasting and well seasoned. The drinks are weak but have a great appearance. I did like the valet parking, that is a nice touch. Nice friendly atmosphere. The waiters are very attentive, never had to want for anything. The steak was prepared to perfection and the Salmon was nicely seasoned with a fresh catch taste.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
The meal we had was excellent. The service was second to none. We can not wait to go back.

Good food—friggin loud
The Chophouse has great food and excellent staff. It is loud however, so conversation can be a bit tricky. In the end I would recommend this place, especially for special occasions like birthdays or anniversaries.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went there with my family to celebrate my birthday. Food was excellent, service was very attentive. The wait-staff even kept up with when my daughter switched seats because she was chilly near the vent!
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Really open,not cozy in main dining room,but looked really cozy in back room. Service was great,and food was good.Did think it was a bit noisier than I like.Overall it was a good place for a nice dining experience.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was our first time dining at The Chop House. As it was a little chilly the evening we dined, the complimentary valet parking was a much appreciated surprise. We arrived about 10 minutes early for our reservation and were seated immediately. Our server Bob arrived at our table promptly, and was very helpful in explaining the menu, offering suggestions, and answering any questions that we had. Throughout dinner and dessert he was very attentive and visited the table several times to check on us. The food and service were excellent at all levels. Dining at the Chop House was a very pleasant experience and we plan to dine their again as well as recommend it to friends.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
All food great except that
All food great except that "Chilean Sea Bass" was NOT. Was a meaty fish that was white. Should have told us they didn't have it.

Service was excellent, kona tips were awesome
$40 for 8oz filet special was just ridiculous!!

sterling service and excellent food over several visits.

they make a quality drink that is not watered down. The food is always fresh. The servers always warm with a smile. Chop house is a comfort zone!!!!! That's a compliment

I live in Philly, & have become a Philly food snob. I thought I'd never find a restaurant in NJ that meets some of the Philly restaurant standards. I have never had anything from here that I did not like. The food is amazing, bottom line.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
The service is amazing and the servers are so attentive. Steaks are wonderful, salmon is delicious and the side dishes never disappoint. Martinis are great, wine list is excellent and the oysters are superb. The enclosed deck are is nice and cozy - love the fireplaces and ambiance.

Nice Night Out
My wife and I recently went to Chophouse to celebrate her birthday.
The overall experience was great. The quality of the food was very good and all of the staff was very friendly looking to help make our night very enjoyable. Unfortunately we arrived after dark on a rainy night and therefore could not see the great view over the lake. We've gone on days with longer daylight and really enjoyed the view. Either way, we had a nice night out this last visit.
