Massive wooden door, old bricks and rustic beams of Harrisonburg’s old City Produce Exchange building, the perfect setting for a memorable dining experience at The LOCAL Chop & Grill House. Bring your friends and savor the atmosphere, food and drink that set us apart from other restaurants. Our menu features fresh, hand-selected, LOCAL and seasonal foods prepared with a progressive flair by Chef Ryan Zale. Farm to Table is the mainstay of our eating philosophy. That’s why we work with community food producers to support organic, sustainable, LOCAL farms, and put the finest, freshest foods on the table for you. We’re serious about making choices that are environmentally sound, from the food we carefully hand-select to the aprons our kitchen and wait staff wear. Casual and fun, The LOCAL Chop & Grill House brings you world-class dining with a decidedly LOCAL flavor.

Great Menu, good quality food, great service, my only complaint is that you can not get the full menu in the bar area, it is very cozy there and they had this wonderful tuna on the menu as an entree choice but I have not seen it on the menu in a couple of years. It was the best tuna... More

I like this place, the bar is very nice place to sit and have some food. Not that expensive like upstairs. However, it is so crowded, so you may need to wait couple of mins but it is fine.

I can see this restaurant is rated so high. The food was delicious, and very reasonably priced. We ate off the bar menu. My daughter ordered the bison burger with fries and a side of Mac n cheese. I also ordered the bison burger and the mussels. It was all outstanding! The bison burger was so juicy, the fries were... More

Had an early dinner in the bar on Saturday. Absolutely fantastic mussels and an excellent martini. Terrific service. Can't wait to return.

Well, it's tough to get a reservation, but it's worth the wait. Reservations at 8 and the table was ready on our arrive a few minutes early. From apps to the "sticky toffee pudding" for dessert, the food did not disappoint. A little pricey, but I dont mind paying for GOOD food! Waitress was attentive but not over bearing. I... More

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.
