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...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.

Great hostess, waiter, servers, bar, food. We went for an early-ish dinner at 6:00pm. Business was already going well, we were seated in a timely manner (we had a reservation). Comfortable seating. The waiter was extremely knowledgeable about all items on the menu and complimentary...More

I decided to try this place after receiving a coupon for half off my second entrée. I was pleasantly surprised with the overall ambience, cuisine, and professionalism of the staff. The appetizers were fresh and bursting with flavor. The entrées were small but priced accordingly...More

Wife and I visit Choplin’s on a weekly basis usually for lunch. Very good daily lunch specials—don’t miss Thursday’s turkey dinner—not only tasty but an excellent value. Dinners are nice as well with excellent ambiance. Don’t be dismayed by the “shopping center” location...interior is what...More

All were delicious. Dessert was Baileys chocolate cake (gluten free) also delicious. No complaints....More

I’ll start off by saying the food was good but for their pricing, it should be! Also for the prices, service should be second to none. $28 for a chicken dish is quite steep considering (at least for our visit) they couldn’t handle the amount...More

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Choplin’s. The bang bang shrimp appetizer was some of the best we’ve had and the scallop and halibut entree’s were delicious. The service is top notch and our only recommendation would be to replace the ceiling tiles.......More

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.
