love The Chop house for Happy Hour. Not impressed with their dining room - asked to substitute for a vegetarian option and they don't do substitutions.

I've been to Harrisonburg on three separate business trips. This time, I was fortunate to have my wife accompany me. We were in town 4 nights, and while we had some great meals at other local establishments - - this place was definitely at the top of the list. I'd eaten here before by myself - in the "Local Bar"...

As a rule, The Local Chop and Grill House is not open on Sundays. However, they made an exception for Mother's Day and that is where my family went to honor my wife as mother of our children. The service was absolutely "over the top" and our server made us feel very special. As usual, the menu was superb and... More

We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of my birthday dinner here. The steak we shared, a nightly special, locally sourced and grass-fed, was delicious, the service and ambiance were perfect, and it was just a quiet, lovely evening. If we lived nearby, we would become regulars!

We brought our daughter to her favorite restaurant in Harrisonburg for graduation from JMU. It was a set menu and we all ordered the ribeye along with some delicious dishes including pork belly, sweet potato fritters, carpaccio, chili. All were very good and the service was excellent. Only complaint was the meat - don't get me wrong most of us... More

Service was above and beyond. The eight ounce filet was cooked to perfection. I would definitely come back to this fine restaurant.

I'm a little reluctant to write a review based on one visit. I made a dinner reservation based on hundreds of glowing reviews. The atmosphere was relaxed, comfortable and quiet. The server was polite and attentive. My wife very much enjoyed her entree, but I was disappointed with mine. My 10oz. New York Strip steak was laced with gristle, making... More

The Local's version of mac and cheese blew our minds.....I have never considered licking a dish in public before until we ate this amazing treat. Fries were fantabulous as well. Pricey, but well worth it.
