Chops is a great dining space. It is a lively ,friendly yet still a bit trendy restaurant with a not quite beachy atmosphere . All four of us were pleased with our selections and a very good bottle of wine did not harm the experience. If you haven’t been ,give it a go , if for no other reason then it’s great location.

Let me start by saying the service was great and the atmosphere was good. Here is the bad. First our steaks came out rare. After cutting them, we asked the waitress to return them and have medium steaks returned. The open kitchen aloud us to see the chefs response. He was less than trilled to cook them as we ordered. It was easy to see his reaction because not only was he maskless but had no net on his large beard. When our food did return, the steak was better except much like a diner or cheap restaurant they simple heated the very same ones we had sent back. In addition now the lobster was chewy and seemed microwaved or something. For a $230 dollar meal I expected better.

Went for my boyfriends birthday and we had Cody as our waiter. He was very attentive and friendly. The rack of lamb was the best my boyfriend has had. I got the salmon which needed a little salt. Other than that it was a great experience and we will be going back.

First of all, the service by the waiter and manager was excellent.
The food on the other hand was not so good.
My wife likes the Chop's Style Chicken Milanese grilled, which she ordered.
When it came, the chicken was so tough that it was difficult to cut even with a serrated knife and it was dry and seemed like it was old chicken. Also, what was supposed to be arugula was mostly a spring mix with a little arugula. We sent it back. When it came back, it was not as tough, but it was so heavily seasoned (including the arugula) that she could not eat it. The manager comp'ed the entire meal, but it could not entirely make up for a ruined anniversary dinner.
As for my meal, the Chop's salad was good and was a good size portion. The Fettuccini Alfredo with shrimp was not something that I would order again. The noodles were tough and chewy. The shrimp did not seem as if it was incorporated into the dish until the end, they were whole and still included the shell on the tail sections.

One of our favorite restaurants. We want out to celebrate our last weekend together before my partner deploys. Our server took excellent care of us as usual, the food was so good. Highly recommend the mussels appetizer. And they took extra special care of my 8 year old and made her feel like a princess. They even surprised us at the end and brought my partner out a Gelato to send him good luck for his deployment. We were incredibly impressed as usual. It was my mom's first time joining us and she is determined to come back as well.

I was in town celebrating a birthday and solo camping trip. The service couldn’t have been more friendly or knowledgeable.

The martini I ordered was made perfectly, just the way I like it. The wine list is expansive and I appreciated the assistance from the server in choosing a good pairing with my meal. The crab chowder was a little salty for my taste, but it wasn’t a dealbreaker. My main course of prime rib (a Friday special apparently) was delicious, as were the side dishes I selected to go with it.

I look forward to a return visit the next time I am in Virginia Beach.

Fast and courteous service! Food was delicious. The Jumbo fried shrimp was good but we felt was a bit overpriced for the size. Overall the service was excellent and we enjoyed our time here.

The ambiance is great for a special occasion. Food was very tasty. We had a minor challenge with one of our food items, but the manager was able to resolve the issue very professionally and showing true commitment to customer service. Our waiter Daniel was the best! Even got a great wine recommendation from him!

I arrived 15 minutes early for my reservation and was seated right then. Everyone moved quickly and efficiently. Anna was an excellent server. She knew the menu and had good conversation. The filet mignon was well seasoned and tender, even cooked well. I didn't have room for dessert. Everything was really nice. I'd recommend!

I ordered the special and thought the portion size was a joke. I had steak and lobster. The steak was small but the lobster tail was pathetically tiny. I have had giant butterfly shrimp that were bigger. The risotto was overcooked and the char on the asparagus was on the wrong side of done.
The ambience was great and the servers very nice.
My fellow diners enjoyed their meal. We would not recommend this restaurant.

We were sat right away with our reservations. The outside of the restaurant was beautiful. But when you start walking in … the restaurant was very dated . Almost like a steak house in the 90s. Even the plates and silverware. My drink was ok. Not the best martini I’ve had. The rare Korean tuna. It was over cooked and not flavored well . The crab and corn soup was good. I stopped at the starters….. I wasn’t wasting anymore money with what I was tasting . My husband steak was good . But his sides were meh. Overall if they would update the menu with fresh exciting options.. I would definitely be back .
I did enjoy my server though.
