We have been there many times...this time was good , not great... filets we're incredible...sides of mushrooms and onions and spinach were also wonderful...do not waste your money on shrimp cocktail or Caesar Salad ...total disappointment but wine and bread made up for it

The best food on the island! I loved every moment of being at the Chophouse! Try their vegan options as well! You will not regret it!

The portobello ravioli was a great appetizer but the steak was over cooked and was not a great quality cut of meat

The Chop House had a very nice and diversified menu from steaks to seafood.
The presentation and quality of food was perfect. The service was helpful and professional. Highly recommend. We also cam back another day and had the Sushi - a must try.

I ate here twice during my stay. Service was poor both visits. I was shocked as I have stayed at Manchebo before and my dining experiences at The Chophouse were stellar. I felt very much ignored on my first stay, so much so I didn't stay for dessert. My second visit was equally disappointing. Ten minutes before anyone asked if I'd like a cocktail. Once I ordered, it took nearly an hour for my entree to arrive. It was obvious from all the scurrying around there had been some kind of issue with several orders. Very disappointing.

We chose to eat at the chophouse after a vow renewal on the beach. The atmosphere was perfect and the service was outstanding. The food was delicious. We will plan to eat there again next time we are in Aruba!

Food was good quality but not cooked as ordered and the waitress took over 30 mins server also
Times to check on us or bring food or the check. Not that we were in a hurry but there were only 12 people in the entire dining room so the service was incredibly slow for the amount of people.

Amuse OK, straight downhill from there. Caesar salad under dressed, no seasoning. French onion not seasoned, bland as all hell. Beef stroganoff, not a creamy attempt, more of a noodle stew, again zero seasoning. Worst for last, wahoo overcooked by 5 minutes minimum. Theoretically a meuenierre sauce, I would have DARED the chef to come out and taste it in front of us. We have returned two dishes LIFETIME. This made three. Service was lame, table for two not at peak business was never bussed. Odd side note, what kind of steakhouse has 5 cabs on the wine list?
Real rubbish imo. They did take the tortured fish off the bill fwiw. You could have driven a nail with this hunk of fish

Service was amazing, definitely the best service we have had on the entire island (which made the entire experience enjoyable). The food portions were huge! The fish was the best part. They also have a unique cocktail menu with reasonably priced martinis so you can actually enjoy more than 1 drink. The basil martini was the best!

We were here for our anniversary dinner. We have eaten all over the island (our 6th time to Aruba) and opted to try the Chophouse. We sat in “Ikes Bistro” which is connected to the Chophouse. Ikes offers the outdoor seating, poolside, while allowing you to order from the Chophouse kitchen. The food, waitstaff and experience was amazing. I say this after disappointing meals at Made Jennets (our go to) and the Vue (horrible food and experience). Like Papiamento’s, Barefoot and Pinchos, you will not be disappointed here.

Was really excited to try this restaurant. Unfortunately our steaks were tough. We ordered an 8 oz filet and a ribeye. The sauces were delicious and the ambience was great.
We had much better steak at El Gaucho.

The food was good but with issues. We both ordered our Filets medium rare but both were cooked well done. Couple other people at the restaurant were also complaining about the steaks being overcooked as well. The desserts and service were very good.

Our waiter, Alex, was amazing. Totally attentive yet never hovering. We ordered both sushi and steak. The porterhouse was divine. Started off with the best Unagi I ever had! The “Skinny Jeans tuna” was also fabulous, as was the complementary amuse bouche (The chef sent out a second one when we raved about it!)
We have been coming here for a few years since it opened but this was by far the best meal yet. Although there’s no piano player these days and it was empty due to Covid, everything was still completely up to snuff.
