This was our first time to the Sands Casino in Bethlehem and Emeril’s Fish House. My husband and I both had the grilled salmon with the ginger-chili sauce. The portion size was more than ample and we both enjoyed it. The one thing I did not like is that all sides had to ordered a la carte if you chose any of the grilled fish choices. There was a charge of $5 for each side that was ordered. Other menu choices included side dishes. I’m not sure why the restaurant does this but it adds to the cost of your meal. Other than that, we were happy with our meal.

My fiancé and I split an appetizer and split an entrée, and I would have to say the portions were such that we were both satisfied. I know if we had each ordered an app and an entre, there would have been a large bag accompanying us home. Not really big fans of "fried" foods, but the seafood sampler (fried) was excellent. I had a perfect martini, and my fiancé requested a special order drink that she had tasted in Puerto Rico. The bartender made it and even added a little more of the one ingredient she thought was left short. Very accommodating. The ONLY draw back was that the tables (for two) are set too close together. You're actually closer to the person next to you rather than your date across the table. The couple that was to be seated to us felt the same way and asked for a different table when the hostess brought them back t the table next to us. Other than that, I would highly recommend this place to friends and family. Wonderful dining experience.

We went to Emeril’s Fish House for Valentine’s Day. My husband chose from the special menu. His scallop appetizer was tasty but only had one scallop. The lobster ravioli was delicious and plentiful. I enjoyed the shrimp tacos (2) as an appetizer. My entree of fried oysters with sweet potato and cole slaw was delicious but a bit too salty for my taste. Waitress was unobtrusive and efficient. I will return to Emeril’s.

Menu features Southern cuisine but other options included. Seafood apps and entrees were nicely flavored and prepared to expectations. Service was slow and as a result we opted not to try the desserts. Acoustics are poor and difficult to talk during meal.

For the price you pay, you do not receive much food. I have had much better seafood elsewhere.

The food, drinks and service are always consistently good. We love eating here especially when it's not too crowded. I was a little disappointed with the scallops this visit - I usually order them but found them to be a little spicier than I like. The rest of our food was great, especially the calamari.

The food is always outstanding at the Fish House. My wife loved her meal as did I.
Our waitress Krista is so friendly and knowledgeable on the various dishes the restaurant serves. She recommended a pork dish which I ordered, and it was delicious. Another waitress, Amanda, also stopped by our table to refill our water glasses. Both Krista and Amanda were great!!!

I am so disspointed from our last visit on my birthday. The service from the front desk to our server was horrendous, we waited for over an hour for our food and the restaurant wasn’t even close to full. Our waitress was also extremly rude the entire visit, eye rolls and all when explaining dietary restrictions.

My husband and I went here for the first time, I had a reservation and got seated 10 minutes prior to the time which was nice. Our waitress was very pleasant. Our soup came out fairly quickly and was hot and very good. We waited for our main course for about 35 min and my steak was cold. I had to send it back and when it came back out, it was no longer medium due to the fact it had to be re heated. My husband finished his meal before mine came back out so essentially we ate alone. The food was very tastey. My husband had to wait for his mixed drink for about 10 minutes. It wasn't extremely busy due to it being a Wednesday night, so the cold steak and the wait time for our main course and drink was a bit disappointing. I would return and give it another try though because the food was very good. Not that I was looking for a hand out or comp meal, however, it was a little upsetting that nothing was offered to us for the inconvenience.

I did not like walking through the casino with all the smoking. I also did not like having to go into the casino to use the restrooms. They really need a restroom within the restaurant, even just one. Parking was plentiful and easy in the covered deck. The service was really good and attentive. My daughter ordered the crab leg at $18, and it was really a small portion. No way it was enough for a meal, even if she would have ordered two at $36, it was not a good portion. I ordered the marinated flank steak and it was a good portion and delicious. Our party also ordered the mussels and even though it was under appetizer it was a good portion, and the fried gulf shrimp which were nice and large and prepared good. We spent about $40 a person with one drink each.

Made reservations for 8:45 - arrived approx 10 minutes early and was informed they were running late - we could see at least 5 tables that were empty but still had the remains of other diners, so ok, we wait. And we wait, and we wait.

During this time, one of the managers was strutting around like a peacock, he would push chairs into the tables, but ignored the dirty dishes! In my experience, when a restaurant is busy everyone pitches in, not at the Fish House
And the 'hostess' said loud enough for all to hear - her job does not include cleaning up.

No one could manage to even clean up the bar area, dirty dishes were sitting there while the 'hostess' kept telling potential customers that they could sit at the bar - once it was cleaned up.


We were finally seated around 9:45 and there were two tables on either side of us with dirty dishes still on them. Our server, who was quite nice, flew by and let us know she was super busy - then after 15 minutes of waiting (and we were ready by now to just leave) she came and asked us to give our whole order since it was soooooooooooooooooo busy. We did.

My clams on the half shell showed up - clams that were still attached to the shells by the way, and my husband's salad showed up about 10 minutes later. I asked if they had bread or rolls (hubs likes bread with his salad) and we were told they were being baked and not ready.

We had ordered an appetizer to share - it came with the meal.

I had fried oysters which were very tasty but not sure if it was the clams or oysters which caused me to be sick as a dog all night long. Sheesh bad seafood tastes worse coming up than going down.

We thought we'd give the Fish House a try since before renovations it was not good. Well, they managed to make it worse.

STAY AWAY - go to the food court, at least there you can expect bad service, lousy food, and dirty tables and it will cost less, too.

Very crowded but poorly managed restaurant. Large parties took precedence over smaller parties. Waited nearly 1 1/2 hours for cold food. No apologies from a very young inexperienced management team. Emeril needs to pay a visit or get his name off the building!!!

Food was fabulous. Service was slow as it was prior to a show. No fault of our server. She was apologetic but the restaurant needs to have more servers on show nights. Maybe other staff helping to provide refills on drinks or just checking in on the tables.
