A word from Norfolk Chop House
We saw the need for a classic steakhouse with an atmosphere that blends the history of Norfolk with the contemporary tastes of today. After years of planning and preparation, we are pleased to introduce Norfolk Chop House. Our number one goal is to provide quality food at an affordable price in an atmosphere that is warm and welcoming. Serving only Certified Angus Beef steaks and local farm products including veal, lamb and pork, our menu also includes fresh, local seafood and unique offerings flown in daily from around the country. Carefully prepared in our state-of-the-art kitchen, we only serve the freshest vegetables available and offer an extensive wine list and local beers on tap. Continued

  • "This steak house is under rated. They do damn good work. I love their steak also they have cool bar specials several days a week."
    Dined on 12/11/2013
  • "Totally empty when we arrived apart from one other couple. It was a Friday evening and although it was early at 5.30pm it was totally dead. Food was good but not amazing. Cesar salad was very average but steaks were good. I think though overall even though the staff were super polite and friendly the total lack of clientele and not having any ambience as a result I would not go back. It was my husbands birthday and I had told the staff at the time of booking but it amounted to not a lot. I would have expected SOMETHING even a chocolate at the end to make it special."

  • "While everyone in our party had an excellent meal, I think my veal chop was the superior entree at the table. We'll definitely be back!"

  • "We stopped in for a nice quite dinner for two. The ambience was very nice. There was 80's music playing softly in the background. Our Server was fantastic. The food was amazing and reasonably priced. Can't wait to go back."

  • "My wife and I tried this restaurant prior to a trip to the VSO Pops show and were pleasantly surprised the food was excellent. They were short staffed the night we went so the wait was a little longer than we would have liked but overall an excellent experience. We will be back."

  • "Could not recommend this restaurant. Salad taken from me within 5 mins. Could not eat steak, even though it was returned since it was under cooked. Witress went missing for some 20 mins. I left without eating and with a bill over $100. Went out to a empty parking lot to have the valet tell us he was busy and we could get our own car. Left the restaurant angry and hungry and had to pay money for this experience. Whats wrong with this picture?"

  • "My wife and I ate here the day after Valentine's Day. I made reservations on-line and made a request to be seated in a quiet romantic spot. I stopped in the day before and dropped off roses and a card. They placed us in an excellent location and had the flowers and card waiting at our table when we arrived. It was our first time at the restaurant so I wasn't sure what to expect. I wouldn't tell my wife where we were going so it could be a surprise(she hates surprises!). She loved this surprise!! The food was delicious, the ambiance was perfect, and the service was attentive. Apparently the staff felt we waited to long for our main entree so they gave us a free dessert. We didn't even ask for it! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE NORFOLK CHOP HOUSE!!!"

  • "I have been to the Chop House 3 times and on every occasion the food was some of the best to be found in Norfolk. Unfortunately, on this last occasion that the service was so bad it left me with a bad taste in my mouth. We will definitely return but I will be selective about the server. The waiter was down right insulting to us as he took the order. He acted as if we were inconveniencing him by forcing him to ask us how we wanted our steak prepared, the choice of sides , etc.His form of asking was "Same questions as before". In addition, he seemed to want to get involved in our dinner conversation, which I felt was highly inappropriate.In summary One of the best restaurants in Norfolk."

    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Great experience, especially for Valentine's Day. Very elegant and sophisticated atmosphere. Glad we didn't get seated in the middle of the floor because it seemed a little cramped. It would've been nice to have a bit of bread at some point."

  • "We were looking for a decent steak place in Norfolk. I was impressed by the valet who took our car and gave us a pager to notify the valet when we were ready to leave, so the car would not only be ready when we left, it was well on its way to warming up, which was great on a frigid night. There are no tablecloths on the tables, which is not a deal breaker, but I believe they promote themselves as a fancier restaurant. The salad was average, the onion rings were frozen and the steak was also only average and was delivered to the table warm, but not hot. As the price was a bit higher than chains like Outback, I would say this place is good, but not great by a long shot. At least it is not a chain. I still would not hesitate to go back."

  • "My wife and I dined here for our 6th Wedding Anniversary and I must say that the food was exquisite, service was well above par, and the drinks were great. Did I mention the food was awesome? I had the surf and turf with the crab cake, the fried oyster appetizer, and a salad. The details were given due attention as evidenced by the amount of dressing that went on the salad-it was deliberate and perfect. My wife enjoyed her ribeye as did I my filet and crab cake. If not for the children crying and whining in the background, the night would have been absolutely perfect. The food was excellent, the waiter polite and attentive, the ambiance-brilliant. They should not allow children into a place like this, but still I would come back regardless."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Food was good. Service was wonderful. Crabcakes were the best ever. Comprises of lump, jumbo lump and absolutely no filler!! Filet was really good. Didn't need any steak sauce. Salad was ok. The crab dip wasn't great. It seemed like it had to many onions in it. Needed more crab. Didn't eat dessert but the menu sounded really good. The only major downfall was the gouda escalloped potatoes were room temperature. If heated to a higher temp. They would have been good."

  • "Food was great! Service was even better, valet was also great, but do expect to spend a decent amount at the end of the night. I went in expecting that, and had no care for price of what i planned to eat/ drink, but if you are worried about price, you might want to choose elsewhere."

  • "WONDERFUL meal, service was excellent, everything was great. We will definitely go there again."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "This was a great dinning experience however, it was a great place if you are on a diet because nothing is really seasoned. I like the fact that they do group parties, but the noise level can be to much. They should try to section off groups. The group that way there when we ate was very loud and the laughter and loud talk echoed threw the place. The service though was excellent."

  • "This was a truly wonderful dining experience and look forward to our next visit. Yum, the New York Strip was delish!"

  • "We had been wanting to try the Norfolk Chop Shop but always put it off. We finally made reservations to eat out and it met and exceeded our expectations. It was very quaint. The tables were not too close so that if it were packed, you were not on top of your neighboring patrons. The food was fabulous and we did not feel rushed to eat and leave. It was an awesome experience and we will definitely return."

  • "The only issue we had is that we were seated by the door, and it was quite cold. The draft was cold. We asked to move tables and the hostess seemed annoyed with the move."

  • "From the valet parking, to our waiter "Tucker"; from cocktails to dessert; the Norfolk Chop House was simply fantastic! Superb menu…great bar…this is a very special place for a very special occasion! Fantastic addition to Norfolk's fine dining scene. Thanks for a great celebration."

  • "I had a reservation for 8 on NYE made several weeks in advance. The table was ready at out arrival and we were greeted promptly. The service, while pleasant enough, was extremely slow from drink delivery to order taking and food delivery. For the cost of the meal (nearly $200 per couple with wine) the quality of the meat was mediocre and four of the meals were overcooked and two had to be sent back. It took an additional 20 minutes to get those meals back and so our dining was off on timing. While we did receive an apology, nothing else was offered to compensate for the inconvenience and quality. My friends filet had to be recooked as it was overdone and the replacement she received was fatty. Would not recommend based on this experience."

  • "This restaurant was a great spot for date night. The server was very friendly and attentive and the atmosphere was great. It's fun how they valet park your car for you despite the parking lot being right next to the restaurant. The food was very good however we did have a few slight issues. First, part of our appetizer was badly burned and inedible. Second, we both ordered steaks but ordered them cooked differently. I have mine medium and he has his medium rare. However mine was medium rare and his was medium. The waiter was extremely apologetic and you could tell he felt incredibly bad for switching the orders. The wine list was good! We'll definitely be back!!"

  • "Mom-in-law was visiting so we took her to the Chophouse for dinner on New Year's Eve. We all had a lovely time. We asked our server if it would be okay to not rush through dinner and she was very accommodating. It was a relaxing atmosphere, we didn't feel rushed at all. It's a chophouse so it's not overly formal but good for a romantic dinner, business dinner, or family. The valet parking is one of the best organized I've experienced. We've dined here handful of times and enjoyed it each time. We also attended with a large group business dinner party on one occasion and that was well serviced. Would definitely recommend."

  • "The food was good, just okay. Got the petite steak and it was indeed petite, in fact when it arrived at the table I said, "wow, that's small..." The baked potato was done right, nothing to write home about. The butter spread and the rolls were the best part of the dinner, really good! I got the Creme' Brulee and Champagne and Chombord for dessert, that was very special! This is a nice place, it was our second time there, but at 160.00 we both felt that was too pricey and it probably will be our last time."

  • "This was a dinner to celebrate the holidays so I wanted to try some place new to us. We were greeted by a valet that parked our car for us and gave us a remote pager so when we were ready to leave after dinner, we could just page him and he would have our car waiting for us. The dinning room wasn't crowded at all. We arrived before our reservation time and they seated us right away. The steak I ordered was cooked to perfection. I ordered a side of asparagus but was disappointed that it wasn't enough for two like most other chop houses. The service was excellent. I'd definitely recommend this to my colleagues."
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "We started at the bar for a drink and noted the copper cups for the Moscow Mule; however, we were served our drinks in a glass because the bartender said the specialty cups were for display only due to them being stolen by customers. Also, at dinner we requested a substitution of a soup for a salad because we had already ordered a caprese salad as an appetizer. We were told no. Overall, we were pleased with our experience but would hesitate to travel the distance for a return visit."

  • "This was our second trip to the Norfolk Chop House. Our first trip was underwelming, but wanted to give it another shot. . The wine list is a bit sparse, but there are respectable options. The steaks were a 7 of 10, the appetizer specials were creative and tasty. We shared the cheesecake for desert and it was mediocre. All in all we expect more at this price point. On the brighter side our server was fantastic. He was engaging, efficient, and a pleasure. Thanks Tucker!"

  • "My $36 steak was thin and had little taste....$3.25 for a kid's Shirley Temple?!?!...average service. Prices do not match service or quality of food."
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "Not impressed. Maybe it was because we were a late table (still 2 hours before closing), but for the amount of money they charge, one would expect the food to be better prepared. Lobster was completely unseasoned, 3 out of 3 steaks at the table were over cooked, crab soup was ridiculously salty, calamari was extremely chewy, and salads left much to be desired. As for service, meh.. We waited at the front for a very long time before anyone noticed we were there. Our server was nice enough though. Really wanted to like this place, but we all left unhappy."

I would highly recommend a trip to the Chop House for that special night but make sure you ask for Gregory!"
