Love the Chop House, but you do really need to get reservations way ahead of time.
The bread was the most delicious I have ever had. I am 100% Italian so I know bread. Wonderful meal, steak was perfect!
We were greeted immediately and shown to our table. The waiter was very pleasant and went over the specials and took our drink orders promptly. We had a few appetizers - one which was so delicious - Brussel sprouts and cauliflower in a delicious and spicy sauce. Calamari and wings were yummy. I had the salmon entree which was cooked well with the pimento grits...it was a nice departure from a rice or potato side...atmosphere was nicely spaced away from other diners..it was very cold out so I didn’t notice any outside area but the room had high ceilings and no one was near us. I would definitely go back and my steak eating friends all thought it was worth repeating.
So my husband and I came here 8 years ago. We were dying to come back. It wasn’t the same due to Covid but the food was amazing. Wasn’t impressed with our waitress. She was nice but not an experienced waitress. We will be back.
Good food and service. Definitely be back. Great Experience.
Service, food quality, ambiance were all outstanding. Thanks!
Awesome food and service
Warm welcome and decent seating, would prefer not sitting along banister distracted by arrivals. Knowledgeable waiter but slow on service, main course was hot and delicious; only con is a little heavy on salt (chicken) nice atmosphere
Anna was absolutely wonderful!!
Fantastic steakhouse, the best steak I’ve ever had and the sides were amazing. Not a lot of selections for appetizers or desserts, excellent selection of alcohol.
The pandemic has made many changes here, but none have impacted the great food and service! This is my favorite restaurant in Harrisonburg!
Wonderful restaurant. Service was excellent and food was amazing
I was expecting a much better food than what we ate
Lovely atmosphere, great food and service. Reservation recommended
We were seated upstairs near the servers area - we heard "corner" each time a server entered the back area - easy to figure out this was to let other servers that they were entering the partially blocked corner area to prevent collisions.
Menus were on printed paper so they could be discarded and not reused - good idea to reduce germs. Table and silverware was neat and clean.
Service was slow - our dinner appointment was at 5pm and we got there 15 minutes early and had to wait outside until they were ready to open. Once seated service was slow.
Our son and his wife ordered the steak roast for two and it took nearly an hour for us to get served. We also had the fried duck, and filet mignon were excellent. The duck fat fried french fries are great but serving size could be larger, as well as the other 'sides'. They have beer, wine and whiskey - great choices.
We celebrated our friend's birthday and enjoyed our dinner very much. Everything was cooked perfectly. Our waiter was delightful (I think it was Jonathan) and was very helpful in helping us decide what to order. The beet salad was excellent! We highly recommend The Local Chop & Grill House!
Wonderful steak house. Limited options but that is what most people like about it. What they do, they do very well.
The staff was extremely accommodating, the food was phenomenal as usual, and our waiter was quick + knowledgeable... he got our orders perfect and never forgot anything! Overall a great experience and I will continue coming here.
Our server was awesome! Really knew his stuff and I really appreciate that when I go to restaurants. It was fun to be able to BYOB, the corking fee was expected but still very reasonable. Food was delicious, small portions were expected. Slightly bummed they didn’t do anything for my fiancé’s birthday...but I will go back just for that mac and cheese!
Food was AMAZING!! Worth the trip down from Massenutten. 5/5 recommend
Great atmosphere and food!! Sat in the Bar area, nice and quiet dining experience!
The filet mignon was a great quality cut and it was cooked perfectly the way we asked for it.
Quality ingredients. Expertly prepared. Relaxing atmosphere. Great special occasion meal. Try the brussels sprouts!
Food and atmosphere was great.
Food was perfect as always, excellent service, we love this place for a quiet evening together.
Good stake, ok salad, service was good, we asked for vinegar on the salad but got ranch!, didn't mention it.
We had a wonderful anniversary dinner there. We were visiting from outta town and were very pleased and satisfied with our experience and the food. Even in this COVID time we had a wonderful evening. We sat in the bar seating area and were very pleased with the noise level and table spacing. It was more of an intimate setting. Would recommend for a nice dinner out and are willing to spend a little extra for the quality and service.
We had a date-night meal here to treat ourselves at the end of a visit in town, and it was just what we were looking for. Definitely a bit fancy, but we didn't feel it was over the top. (I wore jeans) The steak was cooked perfectly, the wait staff was fully versed in the menu and while she was warm and welcoming she was also professional (Jessica I think). While it was pricey, we definitely got what we paid for and it was worth it. The wine selection offered some of the whole spectrum, and we were able to find something that suited our budget and our pallette. Overall a great place.
We had a wonderful experience! The food and service was tremendous! We highly recommend this restaurant for any special occasion!!!
This restaurant was perfect for the occasion I was there for (my boyfriend’s birthday). He loves steak and he couldn’t get over how great his ribeye was....or the bread and chive butter combination! I ordered the roasted chicken and was told it took 45 minutes to cook and it was worth every second. It was so moist and seasoned perfectly and ironically enough the chimichurri sauce it came with paired well with my boyfriend’s steak. Our waiter Ethan was fantastic and gave us perfectly detailed explanations of our drink choices. If you like strong cocktails this restaurant is for sure a win win haha. Additionally, we were spread out from surrounding parties and I could see all of the staff and kitchen staff properly masked! And the lighting and decor were perfect mood setters. I’ll definitely return the next time in the area!
Fantastic waitress - they are so good about food allergies - we love this place! Get the oysters for sure!
Excellent food, taste and presentation. Great place to go for a date night.
Chris B is the best!
This is the best restaurant in Harrisonburg... Management has done a terrific job of distancing tables, and the wait staff - Tim - particularly efficient and cheerful. I so enjoy entertaining there.
Everything was amazing! The food was beyond amazing. This is definitely a place that we will visit again.
Wonderful as always!!
Delicious! It surpassed the hype, and we look forward to going again in the future.
Fantastic service and food, very nice atmosphere, fairly covid safe as well
Shared an excellent steak dinner with house made cocktails served in the bar. They made the room comfortable despite COVID-19 measures. The bartenders took great care of us. Highly recommend this restaurant if you're looking for an upscale American steak house!
If you don't get the mashed potatoes then you done messed up.
