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

It was an awesome surprise to find a restaurant like this in this little town. My husband and I traveled here to meet several family members for the July 4 weekend. We arrived July 4 and wanted to take his parents out for a NICE dinner and not fast food. Now that could be difficult on a holiday night for... More

I have relatives in Harrisonburg, and visiting there, we were taken to this newish, trendy place downtown. It's in a big old 3 or 4 story brick warehouse (was once a Seed Co.) that's mostly now chic condos. So don't expect lavish landscaping...after all warehouses don't have that. But they do have soaring spaces, beautiful old brick walls, and when... More
