The staff was very attentive and helpful. The steak and shrimp were over seasoned. Too much salt and pepper period. I couldn’t eat my main meal.

I had the 8 oz sirloin and my husband had the 20 oz cowboy cut...we both LOVED our steaks. The mac and cheese was ok. The cheesecake was delicious. The waiter, Trevor, was very kind and attentive. The manager checked in with us as well and was personable. Absolutely recommend this place and will be coming back .

I am so lucky to live so close to such an excellent restaurant! It’s difficult to say what Chops does best because every dish I’ve ever had has been perfection. The team at Chops always makes you feel singularly important - they not only ensure a high class, top tier dining experience but they also approach their service with a genuine, welcoming demeanor that makes every patron feel like they’re the only one in the restaurant. We come here regularly - and for good reason! Cannot recommend Chops highly enough!

We love Chops and have been enjoying this restaurant for years. However, I latest dinner cemented them forever in our favorite steak restaurants list. We ordered the shrimp appetizer and were delighted when they were not only delicious but also hot!!! The kitchen was amazing this night, with every dish coming out fast and being hot and delicious! We had the filet, lobster and salmon - may I just say the lobster was the best I have ever had any where in the world, whoever made that deserves an award! The steak was perfect and the salmon was on point! The wine list is okay but the glass of Meiomi that I received was perfect - must have been a fresh bottle that was allowed to breathe. The kitchen, bar, and of course the service were stellar! I highly recommend this restaurant to EVERYONE!

Chops met expectations as the reviews reflected. I had an anniversary dinner reservation at 7pm on Nov 6th and we were brought to our table within a minute of showing up. Finally being seated, our server immediately greeted us and told us the dinner specials. He gave us time to think it over, while serving us our drinks, which took about a minute to receive! Our meals were also served in an extremely expedient manner, while maintaining “Michelin” quality. Highly recommend this restaurant for dates or anniversaries that want a mellow ambience and professional service. Outstanding job to the staff of chops and to our server.

The taste and presentation of the food did not match the ambiance of the establishment. Although we made a reservation, our table was not ready, we watched them as they pulled a table from a six top to make it a two top, then clean and set it up. Our server was nice, however the service was slow. The brussel sprouts were over cooked, potatoes plain and mushrooms bland. The steaks were tender but needed salt and pepper. One of our ribeye steaks had been french cut but the other was “forgotten” about.

Outstanding experience, only down side was wine pricing follows the old paradigm of double retail, moe restaurants should realize fairer prices will generate more wine sales.

I cannot recommend this restaurant enough!! 💕 My fiancé and I booked this restaurant for our “should have been honeymoon dinner” after our wedding was delayed due to COVID. Our server was unbelievably knowledgeable of the menu and flavor pairings- as she helped guide us to food and drink selections she felt we would like (based off our answers to her questions). Each drink and course we ate were exceptional, fresh, and high quality! They also did everything they could to help us “celebrate” our day and make us feel special. I have eaten at some fantastic restaurants all over the world, and I would put Chops on that list now. We will definitely be back!

Date night in Virginia Beach was Phenomenal!! "CHOPS" made our trip worthwhile from the friendly greeting by the hostess and manger/owner to Olga our Amazing Salesperson to the Chefs that prepared our meal. Scallops were top notch. The Mai Tai and Martini hit the spot. My lady's Shrimp Risotto was EXCELLENT and my Pork Chop "omg"my Pork Chop were off the chain" meaning it was THE BEST I've ever eaten and I made sure to let the Chef know in person. Thanks for the AMAZING experience. WE will be back next year!!!!

We have found our new favorite! Great seasonal appetizers as well as traditional ones. We had spaghetti squash with scallops as an appetizer - amazing. I would have ordered it for dinner I loved it so much. Calamari was also great - large portion and light, not greasy. We all looooved our steaks - better than Ruth's Chris for sure. Wine options were terrific. Awesome service by Olga and everyone was super positive and attentive. We sat outside on a foggy night because the temperature was perfect. The only drawback is the street noise on occasion but fun to people watch.

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary there and wanted to be able to be at a place to bring our pups. So we chose outside dining and it was wonderful. The staff so accommodating about the pups and the food from mai tai & calamari ,to the shrimp risotto & the surf and turf were fabulous. Caesar salad and cheese cake nothing special, but overall the ambience & worth the visit.
