The food was excellent as always. Our waitress Stephanie was the best. I highly recommend you try the banana flambé that Harold makes, hands down the best desert in Aruba 👍🏼

Nice ambiance. We had to sit outside next to the pool (covid related). Except for the chairs, which were switched immediately for more comfortable chairs, it was a very romantic place to dine. Good and timely service, friendly and professional. Food was very good and wine list acceptable.

We have had traditional Aruban Keshi Yena before, but the one we enjoyed as an appetizer at The Chophouse was amazing!! Our server, Stephanie, made our evening extra special — she really made some great suggestions and took wonderful care of us.

We also had a fabulous seat poolside with a great view of the palm trees and sunset. What a terrific place!

The food was delicious, a great assortment of makis and a filet mignon juicy and soft, and the service by Harold (our waiter) was top notch!

Suggestion to make sure prices on opentable matches the one on the menu. Price on opentable in florin. While price was actually in dollars.

Love this restaurant for food and service.
Quiet ambiance, pianist, and adult clientele.
If your looking for a relaxing evening with great food this is the place to go.
I had the Tomahawk Pork chop that was cooked perfectly and melted in my mouth. The rest of my party had fish and steaks. Everyone loved their food.

Food was wonderful, Harold our server was outstanding. The 15% service chg., listed on bill was a surprise & something we wanted explained to us. We left our server a tip, but a small one because of the service charge. The 15% should be highlighted on the menu and mentioned prior to receiving the bill. Otherwise a wonderful restaurant to visit,eat and enjoy for a special night out.

Service was efficient and friendly. Rib eye was ordered and prepared correctly. Fried calamari appetizer was cooked perfectly, but over seasoned - very salty. Waiter was apologetic and said he would mention it to chef. All in all, a very good meal.

Nice location, short walk to beach from entrance. Wasn’t busy the evening we were there, so table choice was open. Nice live piano music in background. Service was very good, and waiter was attentive. Wine list was adequate. Food was hot and plate presentation was very nice.Steaks were delicious, and cooked as requested. Nice evening. Would go again.

The service was poor. The waiter did the best he could but they seemed extremely short staffed. I had to return to the bar twice to order my drinks.
My meal, Aruban Stew was fine. My guests order, churrasco steak with gourmet baby potatoes. He received a plain steak with a side of mushroom sauce and mashed potatoes. We didn’t mention it because we weren’t sure how much longer it would take to get it right. The steak however was the right cut and cooked to perfection.
The drinks were very good as well.
Overpriced

The waiter, Harold, was lovely. Helpful and knowledgable. It’s a classic steakhouse - dark wood and white tablecloths. I would say that the food was good - not exceptional (I have a VERY good steakhouse locally - so a tough comparison!). Certainly enjoyable. I especially liked the choice of smaller steaks. Very nice wine choices - -many by the glass - and well-priced. Especially nice — the hotel bar (Ikes) had a lovely singer and $8.00 martinis (Friday night). Gotta love that!

The Chophouse was excellent!! Everything from the service to the food was perfect. I had one of the best steaks ever. It was tender, juicy and very flavorful. All this in a lovely setting. To top all this off we were presented with a large sparkler topped dessert as it was our 40th anniversary! I will forever carry fond memories of the Chophouse!

This was our second time at The Chophouse and we now make it a must go when in Aruba.

Excellent drinks, appetizers and, of course, steaks. They have filets from Argentina which are magnificent and much less expensive than their USDA choices.

Harold our waiter was the best! Great relaxing atmosphere with live piano makes for a superb evening.
