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.

Great beef , cooked well, nice atmosphere and friendly staff. As a travelling, the language barrier problem crops up a lot. After some faltering attempts at German, the server took me out of my misery and brought an English menu to me and conducted a friendly conversation in perfect English. The quality of meat was great and cooked very very... More

A cozy restaurant adjacent to Skyline Plaza. Tasty food and kind waiters. There are several combos for option, it normally contains salad, chips/fried potato, beef and fried bread. Price is reasonable. Everyday specialty is provided under fair price.
