12oz LOCAL Pork Chop
an A1 style housemade sauce
Great Service and above average food. Not a dress up place.
sides were excellent. one of the two filets was outstanding; the other was a tough end piece. very disappointing and reflecting poor quality control.
Amazing , my wife and I had a great time for our anniversary
My wife and I were visiting from Virginia Beach and found this restaurant. All of the dishes were delicious and service was impeccable. Kudos to the staff.
Excellent food and even better service! We had a great birthday dinner for my husband!
Food is excellent. Easy to see why they are voted "best in the valley" Service needs some fine tuning. Understand staffing issues. But, still needs to step up to the price level.
If you like fantastic food, fancy worded menu items and have time this is the place to go.
Great place, great people. Have always enjoyed their establishment.
Very nice experience-loved the food and service.
We were at the Massanutten resort celebrating a friend’s 65th birthday and looking for a dinner spot on a Monday—very tough in that area—so we decided to head into Harrisonburg and we are so glad we did. We picked the Local based on reviews and the great menu. We requested outside seating, and the ambiance was a bit lacking compared to the lovely, rustic chic interior, but the service was absolutely outstanding and the food was truly memorable. Our server Hudson was amazing—he adjusted both the temperature and the music volume for us, and was very helpful on the menu choices. We ordered a special clam/corn chowder that was decadent and delicious, and my friends both got burgers,one the “regular” and one bison. They were both raving about the burgers. I got the sirloin with mushrooms and Mac and Cheese. The sirloin was perfectly cooked and came with a nice homemade steak sauce that I didn’t use because the steak was great with just the mushrooms. But the Mac and Cheese was literally TO DIE FOR. The best I have ever had. We also had the Brussels sprouts and cauliflower appetizer with gojuchang aioli and that aioli was killer also. I just wished we lived closer because there were many things on the menu that I wanted to try. A really good experience. Plus we got a candle in our ice cream for the birthday girl!
Best steaks, and awesome service. Will definitely return.
This is our go-to place for special occasions. Legendary service. Never disappoints.
My wife and I celebrated our one year wedding anniversary at Local Chop & Grill House. The service was great, the drink menu was extensive, and the food was delicious. We both love cocktails and their menu has something for everyone’s tastes. I got the ribeye and my wife got the sirloin, both were cooked perfectly. The sides were solid as well. Collard greens, mashed potatoes, and pimento cheese grits were all great choices.
Disappointing overall. Ww expected far better since it was a chop house. Mac n cheese made with goat cheese was not liked. Duck was disappointing. Only 1 of 4 in our party enjoyed their meal. Unlikely to return.
Clean, friendly and helpful when I asked about parking. Sat near bar and the waiter was very attentive and the food was amazing! Steak special and bison burger and shrimp and grits all delicious!
Delicious food ! Everything from soup to dessert was super good . The duck is a must try !
Food was lacking, but drinks and service was amazing.
The food is always great! Service is A+! Great drinks too!!!!
We asked for a table, if available, and our request was quickly taken care of.
Nice and relaxing with a great meal!
Passing through from North Carolina to New Jersey.
Excellent service. Waitstaff very attentive and friendly. Prices were reasonable.
Loved the Panzanella Salad. Refreshing vinaigrette with delicate tomatoes, sliced onions and kale greens with House made croutons. Would recommend more Goat cheese for palate balance. Overall, a winner.
Salmon was on point, perfectly prepared, fresh and flavorful. Chimichurri was nice accompaniment to add tartness.
Duck Breast was very flavorful, but I should have ordered it medium instead of medium rare. It was slightly under done as the rare centers were a little chewy, but flavorful. I would order it again.
I highly recommend this establishment
Our medium steaks were very rare, barely warm, and tough. The waiter forgot to bring our complimentary anniversary dessert.
Last year, we had a pleasant experience with an experienced waiter, and a good meal.
It was a disappointing wedding anniversary meal. We won't be going back.
This is one of the best restaurants in Harrisonburg!
Our server was amazing and the food was great. We had cocktails that were perfect. Everything was great and we can't wait to go back.
I was passing through Harrisonburg and consulted Trip Advisor for a recommendation. the reviews for Local Chop and Grill House (a rather pedestrian and misleading name) seemed good so off I went. I was not disappointed. The salmon and asparagus were excellent. My server (Ethan) was excellent. Overall a great experience, and I would definitely recommend it to all, and will return anytime I am in the area.
The service was excellent in the restaurant, the ambience was absolutely amazing. The bathrooms were spectacular, they were clean BUT THE FOOD WAS so pleasing to the pallet. Everything was bursting with flavor, the steak was perfect, the salmon that we had was absolutely perfectly medium and the chimichurri is to die for. We’re going to make a special trip just to come back.
Wonderful birthday dinner!
Order took excessive amount of time; potatoes were cold. Couldn't get drink order correct.
Waited over an hour for food
This is a wonderful 'farm to table' restaurant that I highly recommend.
Food is so good. Filet just melts in your mouth.
Great food and service! Also great atmosphere.
We had a great experience at the Local Chop & Grill House from the time we were greeted to the time we left. Chris was an exceptional waiter in all respects. Our food was enjoyed by everyone in our party. We thoroughly enjoyed the ambience and respect for each party's space. We will definitely be visiting again.
Really, Really Slow !!! I would never set in the bar area to have a birthday dinner with my wife !!!
Great place, really good food and good service. Definitely will go again.
Service suck! For reading reviews it is a coin flip on which server you get. Took ten minutes after seated to be greeted. Then waited another ten minutes to get water. The apps took a long time, the pork belly was very good. The calamari was ok and cold. When the steaks came out they all where cold, had to have sat in the window for a long time. When told that they are cold she took away out in microwave and came back, no manager interested in coming over. The food was good for the price I would say middle of the road.
We have always enjoyed eating at the Local Chop. The food is always excellent. Our waiter was very good. The only complaint' would be the wait between the appetizer/salad course and the main course
Great place. Space is very unique and well designed. Service is some of the best we have experienced in our dining out adventures. Love the local food, fresh from the garden salads and you can't go wrong with the ribeye and scallops!! Definitely worth the trip!!
We love coming to Chop House, and dinner this time was fantastic as always. The pork chop special was phenomenal. We’ve never had dry aged pork, and we were blown away by how fatty and flavorful it was.
We have been to Local Chop & Grill many, many times and we have always highly recommended. This time was totally different. Felt rushed. Had to ask for bread and it was brought after entree. Ordered a second drink and it was never received. Ordered brownie with ice cream. Brownie was overdone and so hard we could not eat. Service did not met expectations of a restaurant of this caliber and price. I would have to seriously think about recommending or returning.
