Excellent food prepared perfectly and presented beautifully! Service was very attentive.
Overall good meal. Felt filet was little overcooked
Great food, fantastic service. We really enjoyed ourselves.
Delicious local food and relaxing atmosphere. Love their prime rib and scallops. Great service.
Very good server. He was very knowledgable of the menu and had very good recommendations for wine parings.
Everytime I come up to see my son from James Madison Unversity I take him and his friends to dinner and it’s wonderful and when you have a big group they make it work!
Wonderful staff and food.
My favorite restaurant in Harrisonburg. Tonight started with the beet salad; followed with had the NY Strip with red smashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. House rub and horseradish cream sauce. Everything was perfectly prepared.
Our waiter, Chris, was very friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating.
Local Chop and Grill never disappoints.
We were touring James Madison University and it was my granddaughter’s 18th birthday so I was looking For a nice place to take her. I stumbled into the Local Chop and Grill House and it was fantastic. My granddaughter said it was the best chicken she ever had and my scallops melted in your mouth. I loved the fact you could customize your own meal. Caesar salad was delicious, the bread was delicious and they brought my granddaughter the orange raspberry sorbet, which is homemade and to die for. I only wished I would be able to buy a gallon of it to take home. The wait staff was friendly courteous very knowledgeable and attentive. My granddaughter and I both think it was one of the best meals we’ve ever had. I am only sorry we live 400 miles away!
I enjoyed a tasty pork chop. The root vegetables were nicely seasoned. The bread was warm and delicious.
Douglas was an excellent server.
Always a great meal. Good for special occasions or just a quiet night out for two.
A bit pricey, but the food was well prepared and good. Our waitress Emily remembered us from 5 months ago and was fantastic. The sauces were phenomenal. The presentation was beautiful. My only complaint is that I would have preferred my sides (heat) hotter. But I like my food very hot. My family had no complaint.
The services was great. I think Doug was our server and he did a wonderful job. Food was amazing.
We were in the small room downstairs with the round table. Therefore it was exceptionally quiet. Food was delicious and wait staff very attentive! Enjoy the seasonal food selection as well as the extensive wine selection. Keep up the good work to keep us coming!
Steak was tough. Offerings seemed limited. We have been several times but we’re very disappointed with the food quality this time
Excellent service (Chris was our waiter) and quality of the food. Very fresh veggies.
Great experience will be returning. Everything from drinks to dinner was amazing.
This is likely the best restaurant in Harrisonburg. The main point of the menu is obviously the steak and they do an excellent job of allowing the meat to be the star. In fact, the simpler the preparation, the better. I had added mushrooms to mine and I don't think it was necessary so next time I would leave well enough alone. All four steaks came out exactly as ordered and were accompanied by a dipping sauce such as Cognac peppercorn and two sides each. The Cesar salad was one of the better I have had in a restaurant, coming out with just the right amount of dressing and seasoned with the traditional ingredients. Do not expect creamy Wishbone with rubbery Parmesan--instead, this dressing is just right and the perfect measure of restraint. The ice cream seems to be made on site and is excellent. This spot is very expensive for the area but coming from D.C., the prices seemed reasonable for the quality. Service is definitely the best in Harrisonburg and the staff seem to be experienced. We were there very early for a dinner and the noise was manageable, but from the acoustics, we are sure it could get very loud in the area we were in. The noise level had increased significantly by the time we left . I feel this is an unusual venture for the town and we are hoping to see it succeed.
Best steak outside of NYC. Will definitely be going back when I’m in the area
Waiter offered great pairings with steaks that were ordered. Conservative sear for a medium-rare steak but nonetheless packed with flavor. Sides were excellent. Nice hidden gem in Harrisonburg.
Everything was great!
Food was outstanding!!! Highly recommend for a special night out!! Service was also amazing!!
This was our first visit and it didn’t disappoint. The only negative was that the steaks and chops weren’t cooked to how we requested. Emily was our waitress and was very nice and attentive. We’d definitely return!
It was great as usual. Main dish very good as well as the vegetables.
The food was superb, and the service is unbeatable. Lots of customization options for entrees, as well as a variety of dishes such as steak, poultry, fish, and scallops. I have been here many times and have not once been disappointed.
Ambiance is quiet, but this depends on how many people are there. Overall, expect a relatively fine dining experience.
Traveling on business. We visit Local Chop House every time we’re in town!
Emily was a wonderful waitress and kudos to the chef 🎉
Love this restaurant! Anytime I go to Harrisonburg, this is on the list! Great staff, fabulous waiter (Chris) , delicious food and just an overall enjoyable experience.
My son attended JMU and this is my favorite spot. Farm to table dinning . Superb service although wine price a little high! Well prepared stake with complimentary dishes and excellent pecan pie... will always visit this restaurant when we n the area. Really warm and cozy and will recommend to anyone visiting.
Absolutely delicious food and excellent service. Will be back soon!
Absolutely a fun place to take friends. Food and service exemplary.
Food is always excellent and quality. Never disappoints. Service was a little delayed especially the hostess, despite having reservations. Our server was humorous, knowledgeable & proffesional however. Parking is always an issue. Wish this was easier.
The 6 oz filet was the best I have had in a long time! The desserts were fantastic as well... creme brûlée and chocolate cake.
If there was anything that was disappointing, it was that the pecan dessert that was to be served with vanilla ice cream was served with chocolate because you were out of vanilla- I was a little surprised that someone didn’t run out and get vanilla ice cream- but that did not cause us not to enjoy
Our experience- the service was wonderful and we absolutely loved our table . Overall, it was a wonderful evening
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.
Everyone was so helpful - we were able to pull off a birthday surprise for my son-in-law. Steaks were cooked just as ordered and wait staff was very attentive.
