The service and food was superb! With summer coming to an end, we opted to request outside seating. The esthetic was gorgeous - the only downfall was the flies that came in once our food was delivered. My mom and I both ended up with flies in our glasses of wine. Our server and the bartender were incredibly kind and replaced our wine, along with giving us napkins to cover the new glasses. Aside from the uninvited guests, everything was superb!

Service and atmosphere were wonderful. Our wait person was professional yet friendly and helpful. We felt "safe" as far as Covid -- the distancing and mask policy. My meal was not my favorite meal I've had at Chop House, but it was still very good. My salmon was seasoned a little too much for me and I didn't love the succotash. I only say this b/c my past experiences have been perfection -- at least to my palate! Thanks for providing a safe and special dining experience during these unique times!

I hope this was their off night. The rib eye was awful. The lady behind me tried two and ended up with salmon. I heard her husband state that it was not very good. It had so much fiber and fat which made it impossible to cut. You had to tear it apart. I had eaten there quite a few times in the past, but this was certainly not worth the money. Don't plan on going back

This was an epicurean delight. When we approached the restaurant, we felt as if we were in a very run down part of Harrisonburg, a city we had never been to. However, when we walked nto the restaurant we already felt as if we had landed in OZ. The restaurant was in what appeared to be an old factory building that had been re-purpose. The brick and wood inside were beautiful. The food was amazing, especially the focaccia bread. Do not be deceived by the surrounding area. Take a chance and enjoy this food… You will not be disappointed.

Timing seemed to be off between servers and kitchen. One hour wait to be served salads. Entrees came out about 10 minutes after salads, causing both salad and entree plates being on the table at the same time. A second glass of wine and mixed cocktail was received after entree was finished.

Food was not cooked properly and had to wait forever for the food. Bread was torn pieces of bread that was brought out while it took 45 minutes for our entrees to arrive. The chicken wings were good but the steaks were under cooked and very tough and no flavor. We were informed by our person delivering to food to table that we were cutting wrong. Would have expected much better for the cost of the meal.

We had an anniversary dinner there. We were very well taken care of, had a great steak and pork chop, wonderful bottle of wine, and a great atmosphere. Get some discount gift cards at COSTCO and go to the Chop House.

As always, the Local Chop and Grill House doesn't disappoint! The filet mignon was perfectly prepared and incredibly tender and flavorful. The star of the night though was the scallops with the cognac peppercorn sauce. Outstanding dish and highly recommended! The summer peach salad was fresh and tasty. Our favorite dessert, the Creme Brule, was not available, but both the elderberry panna cotta and the ricotta cheesecake were wonderful substitutes. Neither was very sweet, which we liked and both were light and refreshing. Service by Tim W. was outstanding and he helped make the evening a pleasure. We asked ourselves why we don't go to this wonderful local restaurant way more often and the answer is...we WILL!

Our meals of duck breast and shrimp and grits were outstanding. We really appreciate the explanation from Ty and the front page of menu about precautions during this pandemic. We were at Massanutten for 1 week and this was our only dining out besides blackberry desserts in the Shenandoah National Park. Felt very safe here and well fed. Thanks for the wonderful experience.

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.
