Came here for an early Father’s Day dinner. Food was delicious, and the staff were all really wonderful. Our server, Ian, was very attentive, friendly, and recommended great wine. Would definitely come back here.

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.

This was one of the best meals we have had out in a long time. Our steak and lobster were unbelievably tender and flavorful. The hollandaise sauce and strawberry vinaigrette was the best we have ever had. Service was outstanding!

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!

This is a nice restaurant about 2 blocks off the oceanfront in Virginia Beach. They honored my reservation and we were seated quickly and on time. It was 6PM on. Friday night and not overly crowded. The decor was nice and comfortable. The menu was not overly extensive and pricing was a little upscale. The server was attentive and not overbearing. Food was very good. We had the salmon and the swordfish special that were cooked perfectly, moist and flavorful. They offer a pri fix menu of 3 courses for $39.95. The concerns we had were that we had a 3 course meal and were in and out under an hour. The menu prices on the internet were different(lower) than on the menu. There was an offering on the menu for a $30 bottle of wine ( a Chardonnay or Cabernet) with what appeared to be the pri fix menu. I asked the waiter about it and he said he could offer a bottle but not for the $30 price. We ordered glasses of wine from a pretty extensive by the glass offerings. The last few items are what affected our not recommend comment.

My 23rd anniversary dinner with friends. I planned on a steak and planned to spend a lot. My friends and my wife chose the meal set which included a steak, therefore I chose that as well. We had the blood orange cosmo which was very good. The steak was just like i like both taste and prepared. Our server Grady was excellent. We were well taken care of. We will be back

The food was very good and our server was awesome, however, I asked for a Medium Well steak and sent it back TWICE and half of the steak still came back VERY red in the middle. The manager came over and said I must want my steak well done and was a little condescending. They gave our party of five free Lemoncello at the end of the meal, but for the price we all paid, I just expected better service on the Manager’s part.

We stopped in Virginia Beach on our way home from a vacation in South Carolina. Chops was so delicious. I ordered the 6 oz filet "oscar style" (the added crab, hollandaise and chopped asparagus was a great touch). My husband got the grilled sirloin with a side of asparagus. Everything was seasoned perfectly and both steaks were so tender. Great cocktails, too. I recommend trying Gaston's Manhattan.

Our server (Becca, I think- sorry if I'm wrong!) was attentive and made sure our drinks were always full, but was not at all overbearing. Gaston was also great- made us feel very welcome. Perfect night for outside dining! Will definitely stop back if we are ever in the area again!

Excellent food and service. I would suggest that if bacon is part of a meal, it should be stated on the menu so those of us who don’t eat pork can avoid that particular dish or side.

Me and my daughter had an amazing time here. She had jumbo shrimp for an appetizer, pork chop, mashed potatoes, and Brussel sprouts for dinner, and New York cheesecake for dessert. The waiters were friendly and assisted us very well, and they gave us fancy glasses for our drinks. I really liked the energetic and cheerful atmosphere, and the kind and lively staff. All the food was amazing, and we both loved it here.
