My wife and I ate here a few weeks ago on a Saturday for dinner. We both got filets. They were both cooked to perfection. The sides were excellent and the salads were great. The desert was also great. Service was excellent. Our waiter was very attentive but not overly bothersome. It was a great experience.

Delicious salads- 3 different salads and everyone loved what they had. Came here late and had food off their late night menu. Waitress friendly and helpful.

Chop House has a great upscale casual atmosphere and locally sourced menu. Great wine list. Service is acceptable. Always a pleasant experience whether as a couple or group. Very nice outdoor dining when weather permits.

We ate in the bar. Good food, very good beer selection and an excellent staff. Try the sliders, any or all.

Truly the steak was supreme. Loved the appetizer through to the desserts. Friendly staff. A tad pricey but worth it. Reserve early. There was no room in the dinning room but the bar area was very pleasant. The décor was also very interesting as it was once some sort of food market in the past. Loved it!

I found this place on Trip Advisor looking for a nice place to eat for a special occasion. Overall the food was very good, service excellent, and the atmosphere very nice. The valet parking was a welcome touch since we weren't familiar with the area and had no idea where to park.

Found The Local Chop and Grill House on TripAdvisor and made a reservation for 3 of us on Friday night - very glad we did since the place was packed and I encourage you to call ahead if you plan on stopping in...and you should definitely make this a stop on any trip to Harrisonburg!

The first time I went here I was really excited and this resturant lived up to its full potential. It was excellent. However the 2nd time I went I figured we would try the bar side and the bar menu which is different. The setting was very nice and the food was good but the service was terrible. I could... More
