Definitely great food but service with a smile would cost much

We stopped here for a quick lunch and were quite early as it was only 12 o’clock. Fortunately great weather so we could sit outside under the huge parasols. The waitress quickly gave us the menu and asked us if we wanted something to drink. Probably it took my colleague a second too long to answer... read more

you get a very small steak for a minimum of 15 Euro. If you want a normal steak you must pay 18 euro. If it was some great quality meat I could understand, but the meat is very, very average.

I love this steakhouse chain and try to visit one when I travel. This restaurant is located near one of the crowded squares in Hannover. The complementary salad is always tasty. The steaks are always very well cooked and yummy. The accompanying famous weizenbeer also goes smooth with steak. The dishes could be a little expensive but definitely worth it!

We went because friends had eaten there the night before and raved about it. There were 10 of us so we were asked to wait 20 minutes until a table became available. It was only 10 minutes and we were in. Unfortunately, it then took 25 minutes for the waitress to take our order; 25 minutes for our starters to... More

We stumbled across this brothel of beef while walking the streets of Hannover. We were looking for another steak house but feel into this busy restaurant. Have to say that the steak was perfect and the sides and accompaniments were just as plentiful. Only complaint is that it was cold sat outside and the outdoor heating was not turned on.... More

Since it's considered a steak place, someone would expect high quality steaks. The rib eye I had was just ok and the price for it was a bit too much (29€ for 350gr). The salads were ok. From the other hand, I think someone will not find a better steak place in town-since options are poor...

We travel around the world on business and pleasure a lot and it's not often you find a restaurant that knows it's market and keeps to it. The block house says it does steak and that's what it does. If you're expecting Sushi or something exotic as the table next to ours was go somewhere else. The menu is simple... More

While travelling with a number of North American business collegues, we enjoyed many typical and traditional German meals. It was now time for a more familiar steak. I remembered Block House from the years I had lived in Hamburg. 19 years later they still know how to grill a great steak to perfection. When I think of the prices relative... More

I come in Hannover every year for the exhibition and in 1 week at least once I come to eat to block House. The 500gr steak is great and together with the potato and the salad is more than enough for dinner. The beer is good but they have only 2 types of drat beer. The price, I think a... More
