A very well run dining establishment. The food was all well executed. Our waiter was tops. We were just passing through the area and wanted a nice, relaxing dinner. It was a great choice.

Food was good as always. Service was a little lacking. Considering we just came off of covid it was understandable.

Great friendly fast and professional service. Food was great. Medium portions but still very good. Outdoor seating gave us the quiet serene diner I had anticipated for her Birthday! They even threw in a candle on her dessert! Great touch! Will go back again!!!

My husband and I got away for the weekend, and decided to give this place a shot for dinner. I am so thankful we did because we already can’t wait to go back!! Ethan was our server and bartender and he really went above and beyond for us! The food was PERFECT. And the drinks were especially great! They were all very unique and he tailored to our taste! Thank you all for such a great evening out! Keep up the good work!

There was no valet running and this location is a nightmare to park without it. I specifically asked for a dining room table for my reservation but was seated at a bar table with no other options. It essentially ruined what was supposed to be an intimate date night. Service was slow and inattentive, our drinks had long since expired before our server yelled from behind the bar to see if we needed another round. My wifes comment was that the bread was the best part of the meal, hardly a resounding endorsement for what has typically been sn excellent place to dine.

Mike was quite accomodating in reaching out to us to confirm our appointment and ensuring that we had the accommodations for our party. We were celebrating my husband's birthday. The food and service was exceptional. We had heard about the restaurant from several employees at Massanutten and I must admit it was just as outstanding as the staff had advised us. We will be back when we visit the area again.

Service is driving this five star review, and ambiance and food following closely. Though we had a custom request, the restaurant was able to accommodate, and helped make our dinner into a special memorable event. Thanks for all involved from management, to hostess, to servers (even those who weren't our specific servers, went out of their way to help).
The patio is so nice. Quiet, and the music selection is perfect to make your own little world.
The food was top notch too. The meatloaf sandwich surprised me, I didn't know you could make a meat mix that soft. The salmon was great, and duck was good too, though maybe the sauce is a bit rich. The only thing was the Calamari was a little too salty. But that wasn't enough to even put a dent in our mood and dining experience. Thank you team Local Local Chop and Grill House.

We ate outside and the road traffic was quite loud and we had to deal with flies throughout our meal. We have eaten there many times in the past and chose Local Chop and Grill to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. We were so disappointed-our steaks were tough and over cooked. They now only provide you with one side, you pay for the second which used to be included. In the past when we have gone to celebrate a special occasion the dessert is presented with flair-we for a small scoop of vanilla ice cream in a plain dish. I am hopping that these changes are just because if the times we are living in, if they are not we will not be going back

This was our first dining experience in several months, and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. We felt like the staff was taking care to make sure we felt comfortable. Thanks for making our anniversary dinner still feel special during these uncertain times.

The last time that I was at the Chop House was about 7 or 8 years ago. My memories of the food were just as good as the dinner we had last Saturday. The menu seemed to be slightly abbreviated which is understandable given the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic.. What we had was outstanding and I would highly recommend the Chop House to anyone who seeks a wonderful meal.

We enjoyed our dinner at the Local Chop House and think this is likely one the top restaurants in Harrisonburg. In a town where everything seems to be either a chain or a local lunch counter, this offers a nice chain. The prices are high for the area but I thought they seems reasonable for the quality of the food and for the service. All of us has the filet, so we can't really offer an opinion on other selections, but we all found the steaks cooked as we ordered. The waiter was very good at explaining exactly how the steak would come out at each temperature. The house-made coffee ice cream was a nice finish to the evening.

Big fan of everything we have ever had off the menu at Chop House. Wine selection is also great. Definitely need to bring a few bucks but you get what you pay for:) Also a very nice bar for apps and drinks if your not into the full blown meal.
