Good steaks in Lübeck

A steak house with a good price/quality ratio. Our steaks came with french fries, vegetables and a salad. As tourists, we appreciated the fact that we could have a meal outside of regular lunch hours. The restaurant is conveniently located at the entrance of the old town. It is very large, so we... read more

The steak was good (although of course not as good as in the US or Australia) but nevertheless best steak I had in Luebeck

This restaurant is where we have had just the best steak ever. It is primarily a steak house, but other good fare is to be had there also. It is on the first floor overlooking the magnificent Holstentor gateway, in the world heritage site city of Lubeck. My husband and I were perusing the menu outside, when an elderly lady... More

We had a great meal here that offered superb value for money for very good family food. Whilst we were waiting because it was busy due to the Christmas Markets at Lubeck, the manager made a point of bringing us and other waiting customers a glass of wine for the adults and water or juice for the kids, which was...

When going to Block House you get what you asked for. Very good combination of steaks, salad and side orders. Always the same good quality and good service. The Lübeck Block House is situated opposite of the Holstentor, so great view while eating. Try to get one of the window seats.

We are lucky enough to visit the beautiful city of Lubeck quite frequently, and always fit in a meal at Block House if we can. Informal and friendly service, and just the best steaks. Not too expensive, and a wonderful view of the HolstenTor if you get a window seat ( always ask for one when you make a reservation)

From the Lübeck bahnhof, just a 200m or so walk will have you in the old town and presented with the Block House restaurant. We visited as its entry way was being renovated, so initially actually finding the way in was a little tricky for us ignorant English-only speakers. Quickly seated by the smartly presented staff, we were given a... More

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 specifications. Portions were plentiful and the side orders decent if somewhat ordinary. Definitely a... 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.
