Solid steakhouse

Service was informal, friendly and efficient. We noticed that the staff at our particular visit were mostly ladies of a certain maturity, and the experience was quite different from being served by a college student. Very comfortable and relaxing. Steaks were perfect, tender and prepared to... read more

We went here with a friend on a whim and were not disappointed! The 500g t-bone I had was just sublime and cooked to perfection. The included baked potato side was ok and the complimentary starter salad surprisingly ample. The drink list doesn't have many choices for red wine, which I found strange at a steak restaurant.

Promising restaurant, kind sevice, however both prime steaks we have ordered arrived rare instead of medium, which we have requested. This is just not acceptable in a steak house claiming to be the best since 1968... Bit of disappointment...

We had been in the Block House in Hamburg and were so delighted when we saw one right by our Lubeck hotel. Fantastic meal, fabulously cooked, served and presented. Best of all we had a window table overlooking the Holstentor Gate. It doesn't come any better. Highly recommended

I can't remember having a more delicious filet in any restaurant regardless of how sophisticated or large the city. This was outstanding. Very accommodating to families, with crayons and papers for the children, very kind staff, wonderful meal, and very reasonably priced. The best choice we could have made for dinner.

As my son is a bit of burger connoisseur, we chose the Block House in Lubeck to try out their tasty burgers as a result of reading great reviews, although the place was full of people, due to the efficiency of the staff and excellent customer service we didn't wait long for a table. The food was gorgeous we chose... More

Not exactly German fare, more Americanized. Crowded during noon hours and early evenings. Expensive for what you get, if you want real German food, this is not for you. Keep walking a few more steps. The food is OK, but - see above.

Went to Block House w/ 4 colleagues on a busy Monday evening and enjoyed great service. I had the carpaccio for starter and a 500gr T-bone for the maincourse. The steak was cooked to a perfekt medium/rare and had great taste, texture and tenderness. Quick and friendly service, despite many tables filled.

Good steak and salads. Soups are also good. Very friendly staff. Why not a glass of wine, to give a break in the german beer routine.
