I just want to say that I NEVER click on these links to write reviews. My experience at Chop House was so great that I am making an exception. Phenomenal experience, food, service, and atmosphere. Douglas was a spot on waiter that knew his stuff. He made our anniversary dinner flow flawlessly. 10/10. Will return.

My wife and I went for dinner with 2 friends (who are also business associates) and had a great evening. The waitress helped us with a very good wine choice (Malbec). Our main courses ranged from duck to salmon to steak and all were exceptionally well received. We couldn’t resist dessert which befitted a truly fine dining experience. We moved to the area last year and will be back to dine here soon.

The service was great and friendly, always filling up our water glasses the second they were empty. The food came out fast and hot and was absolutely amazing, I would definitely come back whenever I can.

They have simply the best steaks we have found in this area. Generous portions, cooked to perfection with choices of rubs, toppings, and sauces.

It was for New Year's Eve, so the menu was not typical and the restaurant was completely full. The food was wonderful and the venue is very comfortable and stylish. We had a late seating, and unfortunately, some of the choices were already sold out. All of the courses were tasty and nicely presented. The steak is superb!

Dinner was 3/4 great and 1/4 mediocre. The two steaks were chewy and the lobster was over cooked. The salmon, chicken, soup and deserts were perfect. Service was fantastic. In the end, the cost outweighed the quality of cooking.

We came for my son's graduation dinner. We were seated on the outside porch which has been attempted to be turned into inside dining! No ambiance what so ever. Cold air leaking in - indoor-outdoor carpet - no art work....extremely unappealing considering the cost of the food and wine list.

Our server was excellent and the food was good. I did not care for the "pick your sauce" theme of the menu. The whole point to fine dining is to trust the chef, and the combinations he chooses. I can't say that we will return.

Dinner was good. Like the choices of cuts and the rubs/sauces. Steak and salmon were a bit on the dry side. Good wines by the glass. Neautifulnfor a holiday dinner and we will go back.

The Local Chop and Grill House was wonderful. Not only was the server friendly, but she went out of her way to make sure my food was gluten free and light dairy. The chef even accommodated me with a special salad dressing that was not on the menu but paired well with the beet salad I ordered. Both my husband’s and my meal was delicious! Meals are farm to table so some items change with the seasons and are very creative. Excellent all around! Be sure to make a reservation especially on busy nights!

 (Baltimore)·Dined on October 27, 2017

This is probably the best steakhouse in Harrisonburg, but that may not be the standard by which you judge a good steak. Lacking is a decent executive chef or grill chef or presumably they wouldn’t encourage patrons to cover the flavor of the cut with a selection of rubs and sauces (at least they didn’t offer A-1 or ketchup). Don’t expect an exceptional, bone-in option but do expect a steak cooked properly to your request and a nice selection of local brews all at a reasonable price.
