    We always enjoy the excellent food and menu at the Chop House. Cannot recall ever being disappointed. Service is excellent. They have improved that by having bar staff deliver drinks to the table, helping the servers. Certainly the most consistent place in Harrisonburg to have a quality meal and quiet conversation.

    Every thing was fine except the steak had a lot of gristle, both mine and my guest. It was local, from Simmons Farm. Not a big deal, but you asked.

    My husband and daughter loved the filet mignon! My other daughter loved her steak burger, and my smash burger was quite good. The charcuterie appetizer was delicious, with a nice variety of tasty things on the plate. :) The service here is excellent, both at the bar and the table. It’s perfect for a special occasion or a date! :)

    Visiting from out of town, we were told this was the place to go. Drinks were small; Caesar salads were ok; scallops were excellent, rib eye steak was so fatty it was inedible. Bread was excellent. Service, especially drinks, was a bit slow. Prices were high for the quality and ambiance.

    I had made a reservation for a table for 6:30 pm. for our wedding anniversary. We arrived at 6:35 and had to wait for a table to be cleared, cleaned and set, even though there were other empty tables. I was under the impression that when one makes a reservation, a table is RESERVED? My wife's Filet Mignon was very good and cooked exactly as she had requested. My 12 oz steak was a disappointment--- 33% fat and was undercooked. I did not make an issue over it because I didn't want to cause my wife disappointment on our special evening--but I am commenting on it now. I travel for a living and dine in restaurants throughout Europe and Asia, and I feel that this meal was both over valued and over priced. I think a $200 dinner for two should meet higher expectations.

    We were originally seated near two tables with aloof parents who brought young children that should not have been at a restaurant of this caliber/price point on a Saturday night. That said, we told our server that we would not be staying if we could not be reseated. She got the manager involved who moved us to a private room that was not going to be needed for about 90 minutes. It worked out great and the extra effort and attention was much appreciated.

    We came on a Thursday evening and the sunroom was quiet. Everything we had was delicious. The filet mignon was melt in your mouth and cooked perfectly. Anything made with the pimento cheese is delicious. The fries that are fried in duck fat are scrumptious. I would 100% come back again.

    In the past we were made to feel very special throughout the dining experience. Felt as if everyone involved with our table was just going through the motions. The table bread was very good as was the cheese cake. However, the sides were simply average or below as was the case with the asparagus.

    We had heard good things about this restaurant and were looking forward to our first visit. Our 7:30 reservation was promptly honored, but things went downhill from there. We could see from the tables around us that service was very slow. The salad was served almost 30 minutes after we were seated. An hour later, our main courses had not arrived. We left. The parties on either side of us complained about their meals. Not only was service slow, but one of the entrees was cold. Another did not receive an ordered side dish when the main course was served. They were finished with the meal when the side finally arrived. Local Chophouse were having a very bad night and did not do much of anything to mollify unhappy customers.

    One of our favorite restaurants in the Shenandoah Valley. Cleverly renovated using part of Harrisonburg’s old City Produce Exchange Building on the north end of town, the restaurant is comfortable and charming with a handsome bar and nice sun room. There are a free parking lot and on-street parking right in front. The menu includes locally sourced food and seasonal specials. The food is prepared well and the service is attentive. The menu accommodates various food choices including vegetarian. Reservations are recommended. A great place to celebrate special occasions.

    The service was very slow. They were out of burgers and meatloaf which is what most of us wanted. The appetizers were small and over cooked. Overall I would not recommend it or would I go back. I did here the food was good, maybe we just got an off night. It was a Saturday evening at a 8:00 reservation.

    Reservation for two people, celebrating wife's birthday while on vacation. The host acknowleged wife by name and wished her a happy birthday. No acknowledgment by server. Extremely long wait to be served entree. Patrons arriving well after we placed our order received their food before we did. Food was good. Will not dine there again because of this experience.

    It was my mother’s 88th birthday and we couldn’t have had a more perfect evening. The restaurant is an older building that has been beautifully renovated. Attention has been paid to every detail. Our server was exceptional, going above and beyond to make sure the evening was special. The food was incredible. Everyone in our party was static about their meal. And the desserts. Well, let’s just say that we’re still talking about what we had. The wine list is extensive and we were very happy with our choice.

    The food and service were both incredible. From entering the building to exiting the experience was perfect. A special thanks to Jimmy Breland the General Manager. He took time on my way out to show me the bar area and supply details about the restaurant. After speaking with Jimmy for several minutes I realized why this establishment is 5 star. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit, you won’t be sorry.

    We were a little disappointed in the meal. This is a restaurant with high expectations because we have had 3 great meals here over the past three years when we visit the area. My ribeye steak was too thin and fatty for a restaurant as good as Local Chop House. We will be back next year.

    We dined at this classy spot, Local Chop & Grill, in Harrisonburg, for my Girlfriend's Birthday, on Saturday, September 17th, 7:30pm reservation. Front Hostesses welcomed us with smiles, and were professional. We were guided up grande stairs to our table. Our server, Chris, was very courteous, patient, knowledgeable and professional. I am also a fine dining server, in the industry, so I feel that I'm always starving for exceptional hospitality. Chris was awesome ! Normally, I don't write reviews, so that should give you a hint of how over the top Chris's service is. First, my girlfriend and I shared the shrimp & grits, as well as sharing one tomato Bisque. Chris coursed it out for us, with seamless service. Entree courses were the NY Strip Steak, and Duck, ( I added Scallops), and Mac& Cheese. Complements to the Chef and their team, as all food items ordered were scrumptious, decadent, and prepared to order, with tangy, mouthwatering sauces, which we paired with a local Barboursville Red. I highly recommend server Chris as your waiter at the vintage Local Chop & Grill House !
