sterling food and serviceas expected...the food and service was outstanding.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasantly Surprised!This was our first time to the Chop House. We were very happy with this restaurant, service and quality of the food. We will return soon!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and relaxing aptmosphereWe went here for the first time and were seated on the patio over looking the lake. They have large windows around the patio so you get the view without the cold breeze from the water. We started with the shrimp cocktail which was fresh and delicious. I went with the Lobster and Crab Mac & Cheese. My fiance ordered a filet which he said was very good. The tables were comfortable and the music was just loud enough that you couldn't hear the conversation at the tables next to you. I was surprised at how relaxing it was there (I am almost 6 months pregnant so it's hard for me to be comfortable). Nice view, comfy chairs, friendly staff, and did not feel rushed at all. We will definitely be back.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWay over the top!Prices were very high...food was good, menu was limited. Nice place but not one to frequent.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dinnerDinner was very good the steaks were excellent. The Kona crust offered on the steak added a very nice flavor to the meet without being over bearing. The dining are was a little loud for couples evening but that may have been due to a larger group of diners at multiple tables. The service was excellent, the wine selection was good, and the bar area was nice.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAppetizersNeed to improve selections and reduce the pepper stems in the calamari.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMEasy place to enjoy a greatEasy place to enjoy a great meal with complimentary valet parking, rapid seating with reservations, well mixed cocktails and selected wines by the glass, a familiar menu of steaks and less pricey alternatives. Lots of familiar faces of friends dining there make the place very comfortable to socialize at as well.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AM10 year anniversaryWe chose the Chophouse for our special dinner because we'd been there before and were highly impressed. The food was outstanding and the service was top-shelf. We felt the noise level was a little high but that won't discourage us from coming back again...5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeI've taken my husband here for his birthday and he loved it! He likes to try different restaurants and now Chophouse is now on rotation for us.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA Southern NJ DiamondWe do not have many fine dining restos here in Southern NJ, and for my wife and I, The ChopHouse is probably the finest and better than other local steakhouses (Flemings, Capital Grille, William Douglas). One of the reasons is The ChopHouse's BYO policy, another is their personal service. With many regular clients, it pleases us to be seated timely and recognized by not only the wait staff, but also the valet service. The food quality is consistently verg good to outstanding, and stemware is crystal. The ChopHouse has been our #1 go-to restaurant for quite sometime.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Chophouse continues toThe Chophouse continues to impress. Everytime my wife and I dine at the Chophouse we are met with consistent quality of food and service.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerMy husband and I visited the ChopHouse for our anniversary. We requested a nice table, which they gave us facing the water. The service and food was very good, and so was the ambiance until they sat a large group next to us who had been at the bar for a while. There were numerous empty tables so its a shame they sat them next to us. They were so loud we couldn't even here each other talk, which was a annoying, but overall it was a nice dinner.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMExquisite & ConveniantThe Wife & I, have 6kids & desire to get away for a minute, to fulfill the need for a quiet, relaxed couple of hours, to talk & reflect•••
The Chop House offers the amenities we desire, as well the exact or better fine dining experience, Philadelphia or Atlantic City would; accept it's right up the street from us••! They're very accommodative with the menu, service is efficient & pleasant••! It's well worth the surprisingly low price & short wait time to be seated••!
A must visit & definite enjoy••!

Our steaks and salads were very generous portions prepared perfectly.
Side dishes and deserts were also excellent. Our waitress was superb.
The dining room has a lovely view overlooking a lake. The dining room however is very loud.
Wine and cocktails were top notch.
We had a 7pm reservation, our table was not ready till almost 8pm. We enjoyed a cocktail in the bar
while waiting for our table. However waiting an hour felt very long. Especially since we had a reservation.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and the service excellent.The food and the service excellent.

Very distracting!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe outdoor (glass enclosed)The outdoor (glass enclosed) room along with firepit allowed for a beautiful view of the water and a lovely ambiance. The food is a bit overpriced and ok. I have had better steaks and the salad came overdressed.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMvery busy eve. my scallopsvery busy eve. my scallops were ok, not as good as I remembered from a year ago. side dishes overcooked, also not nearly as good as last visit. Will think twice about revisiting since prices have dramatically increased but food quality hasn't. View and setting are still outstanding.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery Moment a Celebration.The staff at the Chophouse are amazing. Everyone greets you with a smile and a comittment to please. We arrived early and wanted to have a drink by the fire pit that is in a room that is only open on Friday and Saturday evenings. They allowed us to taste different wines to find one my date would enjoy. I had the house martini that is so smooth as it is made with a potato vodka which I have fallen in love with.Our waiter Nicholas, was superb in his demeanor and skill. Every morsel of food was superior. The Lobster Bisque is a must have. We shared the Chopsalad, an Chilean Sea Bass, and Asparagus.There were at least 3 server caring for our needs. This is truly South Jersey's 5 star dining experience.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMsterling service...excellentsterling service...excellent food and a lively bar.

I am a fortunate enough to dine at some fine establishments on a regular basis. The Chophouse has always been a consistent favorite but on the latest visit they really outdid themselves. We were celebrating an anniversary and a birthday. The wait staff and management repeatedly noted the occasions and even treated us to desert. It was absolutely first class treatment all the way. The food and service already had us hooked but this night confirmed why this restaurant is our favorite. Great job!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMTasty food, less than ideal tableWe chose the ChopHouse for our 9th anniversary dinner. We arrived right at our reservation time, and only waited a minute or two to be seated. Unfortunately, we were seated at a round table suited for a larger party, but we made the best of it by sliding in next to each other. When we did that, however, we were facing the bar with the NCAA tournament on the TVs, and a lot of foot traffic so it wasn't quite as romantic as we expected.
The food, however, was exceptional. The kona rub steak was very tasty, and the swordfish special was phenomal. The sweet corn, heirloom tomatoes and blood orange sauce were a perfect blend hinting at summer. The chocolate lava cake was worth the 20-minute wait! All in all we were very satisfied.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the view of the water.Love the view of the water. The food is always good.

The New York strip was flawless and the ambiance and service are always excellent.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I enjoyed ourMy husband and I enjoyed our dinner. Ordered from their $35 menu- calamari and pork chops were amazing for appetizers and NYstrip was cooked perfectly to our liking. Service was outstanding as well and really appreciate when a manager checks on guests as well, as he did.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMSteak is king here along withSteak is king here along with king's prices. Dessert was great, especially the Espresso Cake. I would skip the calamari appetizer, prosaic breading and weak aioli dressing. Lamb chops appetizer is first-class. Heirloom tomatoes in salad were the size of cherry tomatoes and without flavor.
Wine selections are unknown names with high markups. But, the beer is served in a large glass.
Exceedingly noisy, hard to hear conversation.
Still, a nice place to visit.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe luckily were seated inWe luckily were seated in the "porch" room, well heated and with a beautiful lake view. Our group was there for restaurant week and the menu was wonderful for the four courses at a most reasonable rate of $35. Appetizer we all enjoyed was calamari, followed by a wonderful green salad with lots of fruit and tomato and mozarella salad...both delicious. The steak was perfect as was the salmon entree. By the time dessert arrived, we could hardly summon up our appetites to eat even more. Service impeccable...not rushed...perfectly timed. Just a hint....the drinks add up quickly, as does coffee or tea...and the check increases very quickly.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is always delicious...The food is always delicious... I was a little dissapointed in the appetizer choices.. My friend & I both chose another appetizer rather than the one offered for Restaurant week..
Other than that, we both had a good time. I have been to The Chop House several times, but it was the first time for my friend & she really enjoyed it..3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMI found it energetic and delightfulI found it energetic and delightful. The food was very good and the service was dead on!!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSouth Jersey Restaurant Week visitThis was our first visit and it was a good experience. The staff and service was excellent; courteous and friendly. The decor is nice and it is probably a very nice location in Spring and Summer with the rooms overlooking the lake. The appetizers were very good; the salmon nachos were interesting but could have used a sauce or some other flavor enhancer. Salads were very good although a bit too heavy on the dressing making it a little soggy. The entire party had NY Strip Steak entrees; all very good but the seasoning was a little light. Desserts were very good; creme brulee was larger than expected, as was the cheesecake; key lime pie was excellent but the portion size was small especially when compared with the other desserts.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFine DiningI love the relaxed feel of this place - dark, small and cozy – like a comfortable living room. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The food was amazing! My waitres was very warm and Friendly. Prices are very affordable."3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was fantastic andThe food was fantastic and the staff was attentive even though it was SJ Restaurant Week and quite busy. Portions were surprisingly generous for a prix fixe event. We will definitely be back.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce in a Life Time MealThe ChopHouse was a once in a life time treat for us. The prices are high. I am so glad we were able to dine there during restaurant week. We stayed with the special menu plus added Shrimp Cocktail and we had four drinks which came up to $112. before tip. The server was attentive and very nice. She checked on us many times through out our time there. The rest of the staff was also very attentive; taking away our plates, refilling our water. It was nice to be taken care of at a wonderful meal. Just what you expect but may not get at other restaurants.
The food was wonderful!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, cozy atmosphereGreat food, cozy atmosphere our server Dawn was excellent !3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMStaff was very attentive.Staff was very attentive.
