We were very impressed by the quality of food and the excellent service we received. We were in a large group and only heard high praise for the entrees, appetizers, and desserts. Very pleased. I wish we lived in the area so we could go...more often.More

Went for takeout lunch and had the veggie plate. Pintos were good but the sweet potato casserole with corn flakes (?) was not the best. Key Lime, my favorite dessert was below average, as well. Unfortunately, my first and only visit. Sorry for being negative...but this is my truth.More

3 couples, 5 different entrees. Duck, crispy outside, very good orange sauce, 2 leg/thigh combos. Flounder, football sized whole flounder including bones. Halibut, hefty piece over stew of veggies. Salmon, extremely large piece on bed of turmeric rice with a super flavorful sauce. Chicken, breast...with mushrooms over Yukon gold mashed potatoes. All were served with a vegetable of the day. Everything was excellent. We had to follow up with Baileys chocolate cake. Yum! Very good food but pricey. Good for a special occasion. Staff was good & knowledgeableMore

Just saw on several search engine's that falsely claims Choplin's was Permanently closed. I couldn't believe it. We were just there ! I called to make sure (because I was feeling devistated that our favorite restaurant had closed. This is an error on several search...engines . They do not know whether it is by accident or puposely done, but obviously hurts their business. Get the word out. THEY ARE OPEN AS USUAL and their Website gives their correct hours and phone number, so call them. On to my Review from the other night.... The strip mall where Choplin's is located, does not do it justice! It is our go to for Anniversaries, Birthdays, Graduation celebrations from HS, Undergrad, Masters and PhD for our son (His Favorite, too!) I have traveled the world and Choplin's rates right up there with the best I have ever experienced! Also a great lunch menu for a date with a family member or friend. I meet there with friends in the afternoon several times a month It's quiet enough that you can actually hear each other talk and the service is superb! Always!More

Really good value. Appetizers are all enough for 2 or 3 people. Main courses all healthy size portions of high quality. The restaurant is very busy so it’s not really for a romantic evening. Lots of tables of 6 or 7 and a significant number...of families with children. Brussels sprouts for appetizer and duck for entrée were our favorites.More

One of the most overall incredible restaurant experiences of my life. Choplin’s is right off the highway and yet provides a top notch, extraordinary culinary evening. The halibut was perfectly cooked, crisp, moist in a beautiful broth that was divine. The pork chop was tender,...flavorful and not overcooked, as most restaurants fall pray to. Housemade cheesecake was not the sweet cloying dessert you often find, but rather flavorful, moist, with a wonderful ricotta texture. Our knowledgeable, attention server was delightful and enhanced the entire experience. She shared with us that the chef/owner closed for renovations during COVID and included the staff in working on renovations to keep them employed. This is a top notch restaurant any way you can measure a restaurant.More

We enjoyed a great meal at Choplin’s. This is clearly an area favorite since it was completely full. Danielle, our server, was attentive and accommodating. The crab casserole is a great appetizer, the grilled salmon snd the ribeye were great entree’s.

Enjoyed a delicious lunch here with 5 others. Had lobster bisque ana great salads. Also Sirloin beef tips that were so tender and so delicious! Server was okay, little slow at times but friendly. Never had a bad meal there. The chef knows what he...is doing and makes it memorable so that you never want to cook at home again. Cozy atmosphere too.More

This restaurant is not taking the coronavirus seriously. No social distancing between tables, another couple were sat directly behind us, so instead of having some more wine and dessert we left. Very very disappointing as the food here is fabulous, but as long as they...don't respect the issue of customer health and safety we will not be returning. Particularly as cases in this state hit yet another new high today.More

Chopin sent a delicious dinner, ordered by our daughter, to us at the Pines. This helped to make our 65th Anniversary special. We are quarantine and we really appreciated their delivering the dinner and adding a great dessert as a gift. I have always enjoyed...going to Chopin for a meal which has always been good.

My husband and I were looking forward to returning to Choplin’s for a nice dinner on Valentines weekend. We had eaten there for lunch a few years ago and had an impressive meal. We had an 8:30p reservation and arrived 45 min early, realizing it...would be a gamble if we would be seated early. The place was crowded and the hostess was frantically running around the restaurant performing multiple other tasks, including serving the entertainment drinks, rather than managing arriving guests. We waited 20 minutes and never got an acknowledgement or the chance to even check in for our reservation. I was shocked by the level of disorganization and chaotic vibe within such a highly-acclaimed restaurant. We had no other choice but to leave if we wanted to eat before 10’clock and salvage our evening.More

Fantastic food. Some of the best around the Lake. The only complaint I have is the appearance of the ceiling tiles. It just makes the restaurant look out dated. A quick change out would really spiff this place up nicely.

Choplin's does not have a dress code. I would say I feel better wearing business casual at night but jeans and a tee at lunch are fine.
