Description: Rib eye cooked for 18 hours in a smokey marinade, then gently grilled to order, might just be the best cut of meat you will eat in your life. At Chophouse the signature Blackened Slow Cooked Rib Eye is incredibly popular because it is incredibly good. The slow cooking process makes the steak as soft as butter and busting with flavour. It is just one feature on an outstanding menu of hearty meal options including six varieties of steaks, ribs, burgers and plenty of tasty options for the whole family. Chophouse is an authentic steak house in New Lambton. Before you begin your dining experience you can view cuts of meat hanging in a chilled display area adjacent to the kitchen. From here you can also watch the chefs at work, stoking the wood fire and cooking steaks to perfection. The classy restaurant brings a touch of rural to the city, with timber features and cowhide chairs to welcome guests. There are a large variety of beers and wines to accompany whatever amazing meal you choose.

We diner here on a Saturday night and booked early to make sure we got a table. And we're glad we did because it got busy from 7pm.

The waitress was lovely, she left us alone to eat our meals although it would have been nice to be offered a top up on our drinks.

The food was delicious. I had the Rattlesnake steak which is covered in spice crumbs, and my friend had the burger. Neither of us could finish our meals because they were large. My friend enjoyed her burger too. Dinner was about $60 of 2 meals plus 1 drink (I had the water and would have ordered something else if the waitress had come back asking for drinks).

Overall, it was delicious, albeit a bit pricey.

We had dinner at Chophouse last night. This would probably be the worst meal I have ever eaten in my life. We made mistake of ordering what we thought were entrees. If they were edible these entrees could have each fed a family. Ridiculously sized portions of fried to a crisp things - but hard to determine by taste what they were. The calamari was so fried and tough that it was inedible and I did not know whether it was calamari, chicken or esky foam. My friends mushrooms were the same. As for the so called "aged" steak - it was awful.

Service does not mean you keep loudly interrupting a table to ask if everything is OK. Service does not mean you ask how everything is when you take away half eatern plates of food and you then say "That's great". Surely the half eaten plates are a cue.

I heard another staff member apologising to another table about the food. And they had a reduction in their bill. We did not get that offer because the wait person thought that it was great that much of the food was not eaten!
In short we will not be back!!

Ate here mon night and unfortunately were disappointed with our meals I had the wagyu which was tough not rested at all, bit of a worrie for a 48 dollar piece of meat,not to mention the wait staff had no idea of how it should be cooked, and the size was suspect. There were other issues with missing cheese from the salad and cheese burger. The jus was thin and tasteless. Don't think I'll be back was hanging for a great steak.

Had a mixed grill to be able to taste a little of everything and I was not disappointed. The steak was cooked perfectly, the ribs marinade was DELICIOUS. Fries were way too salty and the dessert was too sweet, had churros where sugar was not scattered but that were coated with sugar. Could not finish them. But for the meat part, everything was perfect
