The food at this restaurant is excellent, so there are quite a few people eating here. Unfortunately, the acoustics in the restaurant aren't fantastic so I found it a bit loud and warm. Again, the food is good, there is a good menu with all sorts of different goodies. It is a shame the restaurant is in a covered part... More

I agree with many of the reviews on TA for this restaurant. We had some fantastic grilled meats when we dined at The Grillhouse Rosebank last evening. Largely seduced by reviews on TA we thought we'd give it a go as a venue to catch up with old friends we had not seen for a while. Overall, it was a... More

Like one or two other Steak House establishments around Johannesburg that have not franchised themselves, the Grill House maintains a standard that is hard to beat . Simplicity is the key - better to have a limited menu done really well , with good service to match, What more do you want ? International guests have enthused that the steaks... More

Grillhouse has always been a pleasant experience over the years and continues to satisfy with good wine, great meat dishes and above average service. Good-predictable and worth repeating regularly :)

The Grillhouse Rosebank not only serves the best steak in SA but it is always as good whether it is on a quieter week night or the busiest night of the year.

The food is unfailingly good, the service is very professional but I always leave this restaurant sated but uninspired. A predictable menu of steakhouse favourites, cooked well, and delivered to the table seamlessly should be the ingredients of a perfect meal out - but it just holds no excitement. I've eaten here several times and held many functions in the... More

The Grillhouse never fails to please. Some establishments start out well and decline in standards, possibly due to cost cutting, but not the Grillhouse.

As the name implies, this restaurant is focused on grilled meat dishes although the menu caters for at tastes. The food is superb and the service outstanding. Well supported by the business community at lunch time. Highly recommended.

The service is always excellent and you know that your steak will be cooked to perfection. Never overdone, and never ever tough or chewy. The ribs are also delicious, juicy with a delicious basting sauce. An excellent option if you are looking for something meaty.
