One of our favorite go-to chop houses is… wait for it… The ChopHouse in Gibbsboro, N.J. The last time we were there, we had a delicious steak based dinner. This time we went toward the summer time favorite of seafood, greens and a medley of other surprising samples at one of South Jersey’s most acclaimed steak and seafood houses.
We weren’t sure where to start as the whole menu looked amazing but decided to keep things light and summery with some fresh salads to start.
We barely had room for more food but knew if you’re coming to a chop house you have to try the steak and sides so we asked for small versions of the steak and sides.
After another eating pause, we noticed the ice wine on the dessert wine list. After hearing so much about how amazing it is from our guest, I had to try it out and see what the fuss was about.
Another nice thing about the Chophouse is that right behind the bottom floor level there is a beautiful lake with geese (who obviously get fed a lot) and a path to walk off those calories and take in the amazing views of nature. Make sure to take a stroll this summer after your lobster fest!
