Enjoyed an excellent meal with friends. Food was very flavorful and hot! Service was also very attentive from Emily our server. Reservations are recommended.
This was a great place and the food was amazing! Our steaks were grilled perfectly and the sides were a great compliment to the entree, and the sauces...just superb. We even got dessert, which we don't normally do, the homemade cinnamon and peanut butter, chocolate chip ice creams were a great way to top off an already incredible meal.
Service and food was amazing! From the moment we walked in the door the hostess seated us in a location away from other diners. The waiter was attentive but not overbearing. And most importantly the food (my husband and I both got the ribeye) was incredible!
You kind of expect to order a steak at a steak house, but this might be the best steak I've ever had. I loved the customizable menu, getting to choose your own rub, sauce, and even topping, not to mention the delicious side options. The steak was cooked to perfection. It had a great wine list - we had the 1000 Stories Zinfandel. I highly recommend this bourbon barrel aged California Zin. However, was most impressive was the service. From the complimentary valet, to the friendly front desk who actually took our coats, to our outstanding server Chris who was certainly the best we've ever had. He made me and my date feel welcome and at home while providing excellent food and wine recommendations and engaging us throughout the meal. To say I was impressed would be an understatement. Thanks to Chris and the rest of the staff for an amazing time!
Visiting JMU with family and celebrating bday. Excellent. Would go back
Awesome restaurant! The food and service were excellent. Perfect evening to celebrate my daughter’s birthday!
We were in town visiting JMU and picked this restaurant for our one dinner in town. What a great choice we made! Everything about our dinner was outstanding. From the hostess who greeted us, our waiter and the food. Oh the food! It's been 3 days and I'm still telling people about our wonderful dinner in Harrisonburg. Thank you for adding to a great visit to JMU.
Service was great and food was perfect portions and delicious!!
Great night, great food, and great service!
We stopped here while traveling through Virginia for dinner. The service was excellent and the food was wonderful. Recommend the Pork Belly appetizer. We would definitely go here again !
Our waitess was fantastic! The food was excellent!
Excellent as usual.
Wonderful food, service, and ambiance. It was chilly where we were first seated, and the staff speedily and graciously changed our table. We ended in a small triangular room right next to the door, but it felt very private and quiet.
The food was special. Best steaks we'd had in a long time, and terrific sides. Fine, thoughtful wine list.
Well worth the price! Go as local as possible to truly enjoy this place!
Excellent service, and delicious food. We enjoyed a nice evening of dining in this wonderful restaurant. You should too.
While I understand management's need to maximize table space, this restaurant has attempted to shoehorn couples into a space ill suited for a pleasant dining experience. The table literally was too small to accommodate menus. We had been there before with a couple and were seated in a much better space. This time we were relegated to space that might well once have been a cloak closet. Not impressed.
It was so good the first night that my friend and I went back a second night while on vacation . The food was great .
It was awesome, the best salmon I have had in a long time .
Very good....will dine there again on next visit to Harrisonburg.
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!!
