I was on a business trip for the night and really craving a good steak---Tripadvisor did not steer me wrong! A nice old building downtown with valet parking. I was alone, so I sat at the bar and enjoyed conversation with the friendly bartender. The Caesar salad was unique----try it! I had the ribeye medium rare and it was excellent!

Had dinner at this establishment after reading such great reviews on Trip Advisor. It's a beautiful and rustic building with a warm feel. Excellent menu at reasonable prices and the food was good. Service could have been better but was acceptable. Great touch when you valet your car and they have it waiting for you when you're ready to leave.... More

Located in an old brick walled building providing a pleasant surrounding. I had the rib eye steak, and my wife had the filet. What separated this from other "steak houses" was the choice of three different dry rubs, and several different sauces which accompany the meal. We also liked the opportunity to pick two side dishes from the many offered.... More

Took a business client here for dinner. The staff is top notch and know their menu and extensive wine list. Great local wine selections too! Our steaks, 12 oz. ribeye and a filet, were mouthwatering tasty! Choose you steak, choose your rub, choose your sauce (comes in a rubicon), then chose your sides. Recommend the Mac and cheese too. Made... More

This was our first visit, date night with the hubby. We were going to sit on the covered porch but there were tables available at the bar. I'm so glad we chose bar! The atmosphere was just what I wanted, casual, comfortable, good food 18 beers on tap. I wasn't quite sold on my choice for food, the caesar salad.... More

My husband and I made reservations for a Tuesday night and boy, this place exceeded our expectations! The moment we set foot in the door, we were treated as though we dined there every day. I don't remember her name, but the woman at the hostess station greeted us with such a genuine smile--refreshing considering how many places make you... More

This probably sounds like an exaggeration but I mean it: the Local Chop and Grill House is my favorite restaurant, regardless of location. Between the bar and the main restaurant, I've been here at least a dozen times now, and I've never been disappointed. The restaurant is reasonably expensive, but worth it, and the bar really isn't pricey at all.... More

I went to the Local Chop and Grill House for a date night with my girlfriend and we were both amazed at how incredible the food was. It is not cheap by any means, but it is a great restaurant for a nice night out. The house rubs and sauces are to die for, and the variety on the menu... More

To support our downtown restaurants in Harrisonburg, we visited quite a few during Taste of Downtown this week. Our favorite was the Local Chop and Grill House (Local Bar). One of their offerings during Taste of Downtown was a seasoned lamb burger with their fries and a beer. Not a fan of lamb, we thought we would try it knowing... More
