A business trip to Harrisonburg brought our party to the Local Chop and Grill House. Excellent service and an all around quality meal.

It looks like a warehouse and the parking is awful but go anyway. Yes, it's pricey for some but not for what you get. Our steaks were perfect for us and the sweet potato soup was incredible. Service was excellent! We would go again.

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.

Hello. I would not bring small children. It is a quiet and elegant ambiance. I would bring the kiddies to Bella Luna instead.
For this Friday, August 5th, would reservations be required? I am not sure what time we would arrive in Staunton. Thanks.

If you don't mind sitting in the bar area you should be fine. If you want a real table in the proper restaurant, I'd make a reservation.

It was Easter Sunday when we went but it is mostly a casual restaurant. Patrons were dressed up after church so our experience was different. I really like this place!
