We had not eaten at Chubby's in 40 years. Yes, different location but I can say I just may have had the best NY Strip I have ever had. And we have eaten at every well known steak house house in the country. Service was great as well. I can say it won't be another 40 years between stops.

Food was great. Service was excellent. It was a slow day for sure but based on our experience my guess would be that it would still be a wonderful experience no matter the crowd.

The wedge salad is the best. The small portion was plenty for two of us to share. The filet was cooked as requested and very tender. Service was on point.

My fiancé had the steak and loved it. I had the salmon and the sauce that was served with it was nauseating. It had an overwhelming raw garlic flavor. I didn’t take more than three bites of my dish. Our server did not ask how our meal was, she would disappear for long spurts of time leaving my fiancé without a beverage.
We got our dessert to go and we chose the cheesecake and the filling was great but the crust tasted of dish soap.

Having heard such great things, we were extremely disappointed.

The food at Chubby's has been reliably excellent in my half-dozen visits there, and if they do slip up on something (rarely), they will make it right as quickly as possible. On my most recent visit, 4 of my party enjoyed the three-course prix fixe Summer Sunset menu (available from 4-6pm) - a subset of the full menu with multiple options for appetizer, salad, and main course, all at a remarkably reasonable price. The wine list is sufficiently varied in choice and price. Try the $30 Lacourt Pinot Noir (and let breathe for 10 minutes) if you want an excellent wine at a lower end price. If you can go on the weekend (Sat. or Sun.) ask for Perrie as your waitperson - friendly, knowledgeable, and an all-around sheer delight.

Appetizers of shrimp bang bang was good as well as the lettuce wedge. Everyone lobbed their entree. Short ribs, skirt steak and filet mignon with the trifle mash potatoes. Everything served in a proper amount of time.

Apitizers and entrees were very good . I don’t like rosemary on beef but that’s my problem lol. The entire staff was very friendly which made the meal even more enjoyable. Out chairs were the only ones without cushions my only complaint. The wedge salad was loaded with bacon and blue cheese just the way I love them

Food was great. Server was phenomenal. However, there were 4 of us and we ordered 1 app, 2 soups, 2 porterhouses, a filet and a ribeye and we were there for 3 hours. It was an hour before the app and soups even came out. There were less than 5 other tables and two of them came after us and left before we did. My husband and I took home half of our steaks and potatoes but less than half of the potatoes were in our containers when we got home. For what we paid it would have been nice to have all of our leftovers. Most likely we will not be back.

our server Perri/Perry was great, she made suggestions and was over often to make sure things were ok, the calamari with white sauce was fantastic, the porterhouse was great, the Prime rib special was not so great, the flavor was flat, the portion was great, but no flavor, it was disappointing. We will go back but stick to the standard items

The food was pretty good. I had a NY strip with mash. My issue, which is a pretty big one since this steak costs $40... is that I ordered medium well && got well charred. I would go again but I'm not accepting an overcooked steak next time. Thanks!

Steaks were noticeably overcooked and lukewarm. Server apologized and gave free dessert but kind of stinks spending 40 dollars on a not so good steak. Regretted coming here. Maybe just a fluke as it has otherwise good reviews.

I've been to Chubbys many times over the years, and have always enjoyed the meals, the ambiance, and the service. My only issue with this visit was that my filet mignon was over cooked, which made it a bit tough, but other than that, we had a great visit.

I ate here pre-pandemic and it was excellent. This time, a Friday evening at dinner time, everything was just good or so-so, nothing was exceptional, or even great - my steak was good, but over cooked; my wife’s filet oscar was absolutely drowned in hollandaise sauce. I’d even go as far to say my salad wasn’t good at all - a caesar that was very yellow and lacked in flavor. I’ve had just as good meals at outback for much less, and that should be embarrassing for a restaurant with their reputation.

Decided to give this place a second try and it was a no go Went for my sons birthday. One waitress throughout the whole place cause we didn't see her for an hour. Busboy took a dive down the steps and everything shattered. They forgot our appetizers. Whole night sucked there never again and food was not good

The ambiance was very quaint and beautifully decorated. The owner took time out to engage in conversation with our guests before we arrived, which I thought was a very nice touch. The downside was that we were only offered a limited menu and not the bar menu that I just noticed online. I would have appreciated more options. The bread was cold and stale. It was not crispy, it was so stale that it could not be cut or ripped apart. I ordered a filet mignon medium rare and it came out rare. The mashed potatoes and steak were luke warm when served. The steak was very tasty, but undercooked. I wouldn't mind the prices if the food was up to par, but stale bread and undercooked, lukewarm food just wasn't worth it.

This restaurant was a high-end steakhouse restaurant. Because of this, I had reasonable expectations commensurate with the expensive price-point.

1. The server who took my order said bread would be out shortly. 20 minutes later it still hadn't arrived and I had to ask for it. It was brought out shortly thereafter with butter that was rock hard. By the time the butter melted enough to be edible, the bread was no longer warm and I didn't want to eat it.

2. The young man who poured my water and brought the bread also delivered all of the food complete with one word syllable grunting. The food should have been delivered by the server who took my order.

3. The calamari appetizer lacked seasoning, and was bland and tasteless.

4. The Caesar salad had no anchovies and when I requested a few, I was told they weren't available. Even local diners have anchovies available to customers upon request.

5. The mashed potatoes served with my steak tasted awful. The asparagus served with it was cold and undercooked. When I told my server, she did not offer to replace them.

6. I also informed the server that I was very unhappy with my meal and service. She did not ask for my reasons why, and charged me the full amount of the meal rather than taking a percentage off the bill for my lack of satisfaction.

7. Every aspect of this dining experience was unsatisfactory and I do not think it was fair for me to pay nearly $50 for a completely sub-par meal and service. I will never eat at Chubby's Steakhouse again.

The food was very good. We ordered off of the sunset menu, which is a great value. The restaurant has a great atmosphere, warm and cozy. The bar is beautiful. The wine selection was very good. Overall, we had a great time, and in downtown Gloucester City. I would definitely recommend Chubby's 1 1/2!

Our waitress was amazing, fun, professional, and courteous. She made our Mother's Day dinner perfect. I believe her name is Lori, but I'm not sure. Pretty blonde girl, sometimes works behind the bar. She along with the other wait staff who worked in unison, made f a great day.

Three of us signed a chubby's on Tuesday we had encouraged the one visitor from the shore to go with us because we had such a good experience a couple months ago the food had noticeably improved unfortunately I cannot say that for this last visit it was a mixed experience. The server was stretched thin which caused everything to be impacted by that fact she was playing the role of hostess bartender and server the only one for the whole restaurant. I had to wait 15 to 20 minutes easily to get a drink. The one person our party ordered a filet Pittsburgh style rare and it came out almost well done. The server graciously offered to make another one he declined because we were already eating are entree but she did take it off the bill. Two people had ordered salads their second course and they forgot to bring those and when I reminded them of the fact I asked that they would not start the entrees yet because we wanted those salads they said they would not it was obvious to me when my short ribs of beef came the sauce around it was all congealed and had been sitting under heat lamps I didn't appreciate the disingenuousness.
