Everything of really good quality - service, seating, food and drinks - at an acceptable price. The table service was the highlight.

I decided to try this steak house in Germany on a Monday evening. I had the large rib-eye and the taste was fine and it was cooked to my specification. As indicated by other reviewers the sides are not special but the garlic bread and potato are prepared well. As dessert I had the lava cake and it was fairly... More

We had been in Germany for nearly 4 weeks and decided that, instead of pork, we would try a steak dinner. The Block House was close to our hotel so we decided to try here. Well, what can we say? This is the first (and only) time that we had been met with such rudeness on our whole trip. Upon... More

Steak was out target and we partially fulfilled our expectations. Basically the steak was ok, soft enough, not the best ever we tried by in comparison cost and quality it’s reasonable ratio. Sides are average – nothing special.

The place was very crowded, but after 15 minutes waiting (as waitress forecast) we had our table. The table and around seems not to be very clean, the service was good even if a little hasty due to the high number of table that have to be served by each waitress. The steak was good even if seems to be... More

I am an American from the mid-west so I know a thing or two about steak. First off they did not take any reservations so it was first come, first serve. So if you’re new to Germany, be prepared for cutting in line and rudeness from the other patrons. I was surprised to see that the host was a waiter... More

It wasn't our plan to spend our last night in Germany at an American style steakhouse. But it worked out that way. Good steaks, good seafood, decent service, and an amazingly large and local scale crowd even on a Sunday night in mid-January. It all works!

Personally the best steak restaurant in Frankfurt. I come at this place every year on January, when enjoying at Heimtextil exhibition. I always eat here a fabulous T-bone steak that comes with a salad and jacket potato, and as desert a delicious vanilla ice with hot berries.
