This was the second time dining at Chops. It is truly one of the finest restaurants in Virginia Beach. My wife and I ordered separate specials. She most definitely won with a fish dish with a superb sauce. I ordered a surf and turf. The turf was a filet, which I ordered medium and wish I had ordered medium-rare. The surf was a lobster tail with a sublime hollandaise sauce. It was finished with puree potatoes and asparagus. My only wish would have been a sauce for the filet to add a flavor note, though I wish I knew how they seasoned the beef as it was wonderful. Fudge cake and Baileys finished a perfect meal.

From the moment you walk in, to the time you leave, they make your dining experience something special. You feel like you are the only table they are waiting on. The food and drink selections were wonderful and everything we tried was cooked to our likings and perfection. This is definitely one of the best staffed and managed restaurants in the VAB area.

My Christmas Eve and 40th Birthday dinner RUINED. I have had better fast food. Waste of money. Food was disgusting. Service sucked, and any restaurant in their category should know how to cook a steak right. Not use jarred sauce, cook pasta, and make a salad. And you ALWAYS make sure the steak is cooked right when you are paying over 50 for it. Absolutely disgusted.

Great quality food and service in a wonderful environment. They were very open to adjusting my dish in order to meet my dietary restrictions. The scallops were very fresh and perfectly looked which isn't always easy to do. The waiter and staff were attentive without being too over board. We will definitely go back again.

The negative was that I wasn’t seated in the dining room. However my friends preferred the bar area So you cannot please all the people as the saying goes.

We went here for my mother’s birthday and had the best time!! The service was Amazing! We had Ian as our waiter, and we unanimously agreed that he is in the top 3 of the best servers we have ever had. Anywhere. The cocktails were good and strong! We tried the mussels and calamari apps- both were very good! Everyone in the party seemed to enjoy their main as well. Thanks for a great dinner!

The October wine dinner was fantastic. The dishes the chef creates and pairs are incredible and take the already wonderfully executed regular menu at Chops to another level! The service was exceptional. Cannot wait until next month’s event.

First time here. Staff was very attentive. Wife had the price fixed Salmon which she enjoyed but didnt care for the rice. Also had the crab soup that she liked. I tried the rice and thought it was dry. I had the full rack of the lamb chops medium rare. They were cooked perfectly and tasted fantastic. Best lamb i had in a long time. Subbed the sprouts for the carrots. They were good to. We come to VB a couple of times a year so we will be back for more Chops.

Although somewhat standard fare on the menu, all the dishes we ordered were great, the space (really three different spaces under one roof... a very casual outdoor seating, a casual indoor, and the more formal, white-tablecloth seating in the rear) was great as well, and our waiter, Ian, was a master of service and emotional intelligence, connecting with all diners and providing a personalized service to all the tables he was waiting on. A great respite, within walking distance, from the flip flop, board shorts environment of the beach.

We dine at Chops every time we’re in Virginia Beach. The service is wonderful and the food is excellent. The cowboy ribeye is the best steak in town!
