I can't say enough positive things about this restaurant. I made a reservation for 15 people on a Saturday night less than a day before we had my aunt's 90th birthday celebration there. I made a note in my Open Table reservation that we were celebrating a 90th birthday and wanted a quiet table. I also noted that two of us were vegan. When I arrived, a long table for 15 was beautifully set for us with abundant space to move around in a quiet alcove. Birthday decorations were on the long white table cloth, making it very festive. A staff person greeted me and asked if I was one of the vegan guests, which I was. She told me what the chef recommended as vegan options from the menu. I had seen online a veggie burger, which she didn't mention. It was not on the dinner menu. Still, she said the chef would prepare a vegan impossible burger for me at my request. My meal was excellent. It included a salad I shared with the other vegan guest. Without asking, they served our shared salad on two plates. They offered a taste of the wine I ordered. These are some examples of the excellent service. All the meat eaters said their meals were also excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Was very quiet because we had an end booth in bar area and bar was not too busy.
Lamb chops were great and steak on 39. menu was great. Vegetables were very barely warm.
We waited way too long between servings and the waitress told us they were busy in the kitchen but the restaurant was barely half full. Chops, you need to work on that. We waited excessively long for one dessert. Waitress again told us kitchen was very busy and my thought is, so, go back and get it yourself...it is at the end of serving this table and you might be blowing a tip.
Overall, we would go back. The manager is great and friendly and wants to please. Waitress was very good but she was not around much through the last half of the meal...she was busy, we guessed. food is basically quite good and I am quite sure if we had complained about cold vegetables, Chops would have taken care of it nicely.
Bread was a rye and just did not fit the restaurant...too much like rye deli tasting.
We will be back!

When the locals never heard of the establishment it is just a fancy restaurant with overpriced food. The presentation was great not so much the price. If you’re trying to impress someone take them there otherwise spend your money elsewhere and save your money.

Went to Chops in Va Beach for Father's Day dinner with my wife. It was excellent. The wait staff and customer service is top notch. We are locals and have gone to Chops for years, but as I have mentioned in previous recent posts, they brought on a new manager and the improvement is significant. It might be a little expensive, but it is well worth it. And Happy Hour / Bar menu provide a great option as well. Our waiter was outstanding and so was the food. We'll be back for sure!

Took my husband there for Father's Day. He truly enjoyed himself. I took him there because he loves a good rib eye, however he decided to try the chops. Man... was he in heaven. He stated that it was the best chops he ever had! I ordered the sirloin and it was very good also. Very nice restaurant, we will definitely be visiting again. The staff was AMAZING!

Great for seafood or steak. I had the the 3 course meal option. Despite being near the ocean, it is not an overpriced tourist trap. It is an actual upper level steakhouse with reasonable prices. I would definitely go again which I can’t say for a lot of places near the ocean front.

The food was amazing!!! Plenty of gluten free options. Our server (Lauren) was wonderful! She new the menu very well and could answer all our questions. We had a sampling of both steak and seafood. All of the food was delicious! We sat outside and had a beautiful evening. My favorites were the scallops with parmesan spaghetti squash as well as the filet.

Wow!! First time going because while I’ve heard how great it is, you just don’t get that feel from looking at it, in its strip mall sort of setting. I like the patio but for the quality, the exterior is a bit understated. First note, if you’ve ever felt that way, abandon that feeling and get your a$$ to Chops!! :) We both had the specials that evening; swordfish with fresh vegetables and mash and a beautiful surf/turf with a buttery soft filet mignon and the best lobster tail I’ve ever eaten in my 40+ years of life. Every detail of the food was perfect; cook, presentation, timeliness, sides, and most importantly, flavor. The interior of Chops is very pretty with a clean, classy feel to it, welcoming. While the food and wine were the best part of the night, the service was a very close second. Joshua was our attentive water guy and he was kind, professional, on point, and subtle. It was incredibly obvious how devoted he is to the mission of Chops. Joshua was paired with Ian, for us, Ian being our server. Note number two...if you can request a server, you should ask for Ian!! This guy!! Ian was absolutely brilliant in every facet of serving customers. From his happy, positive attitude and ability to converse with every walk of life to his impeccable appearance and execution in and around the restaurant. We felt happy and welcome from the moment we sat down and were greeted with his smile to the moment we left with bellies full of delicious food. In case you didn’t already get the gist of this review, I HIGHLY recommend Chops. It comes with a price tag but it’s about the caring experience and phenomenal food - worth it without question!!

First of all, Grady was awesome! He has to be the best server in all of VB! Everything was amazing a a perfect pick to celebrate our anniversary. I only gave it a noisy level because of a big group of guys near us. But once they left, it was much better. Get the vanilla pork chop!
