Really enjoyed our dinner, and we'll definitely return. Our server, Steve, was charming and just the right amount of attentive. They serve the O'Connor beers on tap, yay! Looking forward to trying out the more informal batt menu, too.

I took my wife to the Norfolk
I took my wife to the Norfolk Chop House for her birthday, so we wanted a romantic place for a special occasion. We also brought our 4 month old son, so we went on the earlier end (5:30) in order to keep ahead of bedtime and be at the restaurant at a more kid-friendly hour. We often take our son out to eat with us, and it can be touchy if he needs attention. The Chop House went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. The staff carried him around to give us time to eat, stayed engaged with us while respecting our rare date-night experience. It was one of the best restaurant experiences I have ever had. The food (steaks) was fantastic, as was the regular wait service. Nice space, too.

Stephen, our waiter, was absolutely fabulous. His choice for our wine was spot on. I couldn't have even imagined a pairing this good. The food was wonderful. Our appetizer of crab stuffed mushrooms was great. The mushrooms were fresh, the crab tasty, and was very light as to not fill us up. Overall experience was superb. We will be back.

Excellent evening. At 6:30
Excellent evening. At 6:30 pm on Good Friday evening, only one other couple was dining. The number of diners significantly increased by 7:30 pm. The filet and pork chops were excellent and cooked to order. The mashed sweet potatoes lacked seasoning and were a disappointment. Free (other than gratuity) valet parking is an excellent feature.

Excellent food, excellent service and great prices. Our server was great, really made us feel welcome.I highly recommend The Norfolk Chophouse for a special occasion or just casual dinning.

I made my first visit to the Norfolk Chop House on Friday and I was not disappointed. The waiters were helpful with food selections and wine pairings. The food was fantastic and I would recommend the filet or duck. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for. Highly recommend this restaurant.

My newly established fiancé
My newly established fiancé found this little gem and I am very glad she did. From the beginning I liked the feel and mood of this classic chop house. I found out, (from my fantastic waiter) that this building was at one time a car dealership and another time a furniture warehouse. The restaurant was almost empty when we came in, 1 hour after opening, but it did not take away from the experience at all. From the get go I could tell that our waiter knew what he was doing. Stephen was perhaps the best server I have ever had in all my experience with fine dining. He was able to guide us through what he saw as the best choices for what we wanted. Our appetizer was delicious and our entrees were incredible, add in a fine desert and voila.
4/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had a group of 20 and the waiters were entertaining, attentive, and well mannered. Food was cooked to perfection. Will visit again.

Went to Norfolk Chop House to celebrate son's graduation. We had an early reservation (5PM). Place was very quiet - but only 5 tables were filled while we were there since it was so early. The staff was very attentive and the food was delicious. Price was what you would expect for a steakhouse. Would recommend it.

Hats off to the Norfolk Chophouse
Hats off to the Norfolk Chophouse for a wonderful Mothers Day dining experience. Our waiter provided great service was very knowledgable and attentive to all our needs. The food was excellent. It exceeded all of our expectations, from appetizer to dessert. The wine, suggested by our waiter, was a delightful California Pinot Noir that paired well with our perfectly prepared steak fillets. We will be returning very soon.

My date and I started off
My date and I started off with the Calamari, the Thai Chile Sauce was an excellent and fresh twist on a classic appetizer.
I had the Filet with a side Caesar and the baked potato. The salad was fantastic, the shaved Parmesan and lemon zest really added to the flavor of the white anchovies. My filet was ordered Medium and came out perfectly done and the baked potato was fluffy.
My date ordered the NY Strip with side Caesar and mashed potatoes, the Strip was also ordered Medium and was just as perfect as the filet.
For dessert my date and I had the Creme Brulee and it was absolutely superb.
Service was excellent, the atmosphere was quiet and the decor was well appointed. Do not judge by the exterior!

Norfolk chop house has great
Norfolk chop house has great food. My husband is from TX and we had been searching for a local steak place that meets the quality of our favorite steak houses in TX. Norfolk chop house is it. We have been there twice, the first time we went I got one of the sauces on my filet and the sauce was room temperature to warm. On our second visit I got the Oscar option on my filet and again it was room temperature to warm. The steak was still good and I still ate every bit of it. I will probably not be getting any of the sauces on any of my future steaks. The cooler temperature of the sauces took a little something away from the steak. Norfolk chop house is the place to go have a nice last minute date night with the one you love.

Great food, great service, beautiful restaurant, and reasonable prices!! What else do you need???

A great find in Norfolk for steak!
We began with cocktails and two appetizers to start. The beef wontons were delish and the Oysters Rockefeller allbeit a pit pricey at $16.50 per half dozen were creamy and tasty. Our entree came with a choice of salad and potato. My wedge was generous but lacked the special maytag blue cheese dressing I had hoped for. My 7 oz filet was perfect as was his New York strip which was tender and juicy with good steakhouse flavor. We were so full that our friendly wait person allowed us to take home a complimentary birthday desert to share later. This was a chocolate or caramel type cheesecake which was extremely rich and delicious. We will definitely be coming back to the Chop House restaurant!

Great Food and Service
Not an impressive exterior, however arrived the free valet service certainly made up for it. Although they didn't have our reservation we were seated right away. Not a large dining room, but allows for an intimate setting or small family gathering. The food was delicious, portion was larger than we expected and the service was outstanding.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went here for Father's Day and everything was great. The dining area is set up nicely. The steak and salmon were also seasoned well.

Norfolk Chop House shines
My wife and I had a very enjoyable dinner. The Manhattans were spot on. We started with Calamari, which we both like, and it was good. The Calamari is not the traditional rings with a dipping sauce and is worth the cost to try it. We both had the Ribeye cooked medium rare and loaded baked potato. The Steaks were properly cooked and tasted great, no need for additional steak sauce. The potato was loaded and complemented the steak. For salad my wife had the Ceaser and I had the wedge, both were finished. We had a bottle of Paul Hobbs Cab with our steaks and enjoyed every drop. Our server was Jason and he was very friendly and attentive. We consider the Norfolk Chop House our go to steak house.

Good Steakhouse in Norfolk
This was our 1st visit to Chop House. They have valet already to park your car for you and give you a buzzer for the end of your meal so it is ready for you when you are leaving. The outside of the resturant looks like like a warehouse but inside is a very good looking steakhouse. We had the she crab soup for a app, it was very tasty but was a bit runny. I had the NY strip and it was cooked to perfection and had a nice char on the outside. Wife had the Crab Cakes which were a good size and flavorful but were a little to wet. Overall it was a nice place and would go back again.

Tuesday June 25th Experience
Restaurant selected to introduce a corporate executive new to Norfolk, from Atlanta, a dining experience in Norfolk, outside of the downtown area, that offers historic significance to the neighborhood of Ghent, excellent interiors/ambience, quiet enough to talk, exceptional non "chop" options (seafood) with excellent wine list!
I had not visited the restaurant since it first opened. All above expectations were met, the service was good (a little slower on first visit to table than would prefer, after water was poured), the food was presented beautifuly,perfect temperature & timely. Our server was perfect in answering our questions about the building history & very agreeable to substitute vegetables for starch offered. HIghly recommend!

Dining at Norfolk Chop House
Dining at Norfolk Chop House is always a great experience. The wait staff are very attentive and the selection of daily specials based on local, in season products are a hit each time.

Best Salmon in a restaurant
I hardly ever order salmon in a restaurant because it is always over cooked and disappointing. Not this time. This was one of the best pieces of salmon I have had out of my home in 10 years. Congrats. My 13 year old son is on a mission to try cheese burgers across the region and then submit a review. He thought his bacon cheese burger at Chop House was terrific . My husband's cordon bleu was also wonderful. We will go back>>>>

Best meal yet
We have dined at this restaurant on several occasions and this was by far our best experience. Everyone was very pleased with their meals except the only comment was the teryaki sirloin was somewhat tough. The wedge salad received rave reviews as did the specials of the evening ordered by several in our party. Cassady was our waitress and she was delightful and very attentive.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was great!
My parents and wife took me for my 30th birthday. Steak, sides, drinks and service were all great! Everbody loved the experience.

Awesome food and great service. Will definately visit again...soon.

We have been to the Chop House several times and each time, the food, service, and overall atmosphere have been outstanding. We usually go there for anniversaries, birthdays--any kind of special occasion
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
our first time to the chop house
we had the excellent raw oysters and chop salad for appetizers and were glad there was a summer lite option of delicious rib eye, broccoli and mashed potatoes. No room for dessert, but perfect!

Very pleased with The Chop House
My wife and I were delighted to have such a wonderful experience. We arrived and sat at the bar for a drink. The martinis were perfect and the bartender was friendly and attentive. We were seated and everything from our first contact with the server to our completion of our dessert was excellent (it was my wife's birthday). The server was excellent - - friendly, helpful, attentive. He stopped at our table just enough in case we needed something but not so much that it was annoying. The meal was fantastic. My wife and I were very pleased. I especially loved the filet mignon done to perfection. We will return and we will recommend The Chop House.

Great dinner. The salad and rolls were just ok, but the steaks were amazing! We also had a chocolate lava cake for dessert that was very good. We had an excellent server who was also fabulous. They have some places to improve, but overall it was a great dinner! We will go back in the future.

45 Year Anniversary
We marina our boat in the Hampton area and was looking for a great restaurant for a special event. This was definitely the place. Everything was wonderful. Three of us had prime rib which is only served on Sunday and my husband had filet which is said was the best piece of steak he has had in a long time. Salads were fresh, did not like my coconut shrimp app which was over fried and not much taste. They brought a complementary dessert with a candle to the table after dinner which was cheese cake that tasted like key lime pie. Place was very nicely done and we would definitely go there again. Bill was 110.00 with a 20% tip per couple. Had asked for private dining and did not receive it. Maybe next time.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have passed this place several times on my way home and have been wanting to try it. Finally, my husband and I made a stop. We are so glad we did! The steak and sides were delicious! The creme brulee was amazing! Highly recommend the Chop House!
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best food ever tasted
I was in the restaurant business for a while and it's hard to come by good food and good service! Normally it's one or the other not both! This restaurant has both and let me tell you I would buy the same dinner choice again!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We visit the chop house for the first time last sat. It was great!! The service was awesome, the food delicious!! Def worth it! I had made reservations for 8 pm, it was my husband birthday. We arrive exactly at 8 and our table was ready waiting for us! I say that's awesome service. I will def be back to the chop house!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great place for a special occasion or for a goup of friends. Some restaurants put too many tables in a small space and you have no privacy - that is not the case here! Our server was fantastic and checked on us often but also would just walk by and glance over and let us have our time alone (Anniversary Dinner). We both had steaks and they were cooked exactly as we had ordered them. The valet service is wonderful too!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoy eating at the Chop
We enjoy eating at the Chop House and we will be back. We generally get the same thing; Calamari, salad and a steak and this time was no exception. The steaks were cooked properly and very flavorful. The calamari is Asian style and is excellant.

Good Date Night Spot

Saturday evening at the Chop House
The occasion was a birthday outing with close friends. We have dined at the Chop House several times previously and have most often had an excellent meal and service. This occasion was met all expectations for the quality of the food. The Chop House is the place to go in Norfolk for a really fine steak. The hostess was very friendly and accommodating. I explained it was a birthday celebration, and asked if the staff offered any amenities for such occasions. The answer was affirmative, and the after dinner treat with a candle was much appreciated.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a great place to go for a special occasion and an outstanding meal. The steak I ordered was out of this world and the service was perfect. The ambiance was very good; great setting in a historic building
Dinner was certainly not cheap but it was worth every penny
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
We decided to go to Norfolk Chop House as an alternative to driving to restaurants in Va Beach. We were SO GLAD that we did. The food was excellent and the service (Tucker) was top notch!! Thank you for a wonderful evening!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and service was absolutely superb. I've brought large groups and the service was just as good as it was for just a few. Come out and support Norfolk's restaurants. You will be happy with this one!
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful, Just Wonderful!
I love when I find a place where the atmosphere is very warm & inviting! The Chop House is DEFINITELY that kind of place! It's great for any and all occasions and they can accommodate any size party! I am and forever will be grateful for this gem & I'll always be a loyal customer!
10/18/2013 5:00:00 PM
If you like places where the special is not just a menu item marked down $.50, but a new dish specially prepared for that day only, then you will like it here. The quality and preparation of my steak was excellent. The rolls are phenomenal.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Visited Norfolk Chop House for a girls' night out to celebrate a deployment milestone. Will definitely return for a date night with my spouse. The food was amazing! Our server, Stephen, was phenomenal... he was friendly, personable, accommodating, knowledgeable, and took very good care of our group of seven. I don't know why this place wasn't packed on a Friday night... it SHOULD be! There's nothing negative I can say about this place... make a reservation and go there! You won't be disappointed!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place to eat!
The food was very good. We loved the look of the place inside. Very nice!
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
Very Nice Spot
The only problem I had with the place was the location. The food, staff, & ambiance were grate. I was fortunate enough to have a very good waiter.

4th Anniversary night out
My wife and I had a wonderful night out with outstanding food at the Chop House. Our service was fantastic thanks to Gregory. He was very informative and suggested good wines and food options. I would highly recommend a trip to the Chop House for that special night but make sure you ask for Gregory!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
We went here for a dinner on a Friday night. The food was really good a little pricy but the guide was amazing. The server was very attentive.
