This is said to be the top Grillhouse in South Africa, Africa, in the whole world for all I know - I don't like steakhouses so I find the stuffy heavy dark interior oppressive. I found something to eat on the menu that did not entail eating red meat and it was fine but it certainly would not be the... More

We have recently eaten at a few steakhouses in Northern Johannesburg and we rate The Grillhouse as the best in the area. Our steaks were cooked perfectly as ordered, the main course included a side (no extra payment required as in competitors) and we were impressed with the extensive wine list, with some good wines at affordable prices. Excellent service... More

Arrived around 5 pm on Friday. It was mostly empty, but fully staffed. I was seated and placed a drink order. The drink arrived promptly, then nothing. 20 minutes go by, no menu, no one stopped by to check on me. I was just about to get up and leave when my original server shows up and asks if I'd... More

I've eaten many steaks at many restaurants in many countries, and this was up there with the very best of them. Incredibly tasty and well cooked rib eye, with an amazing pepper crust. Considering how incredibly inexpensive it was by western standards, pound for pound it's got to be the best value steak I've ever eaten - easily up there... More

Everything about this place is great, the staff, the food, the wine. I ate here twice I had ribs and the steak both were amazing. Value for money is exceptional. Make sure you book though as it is always very busy.

You have one of the best choice of meat ever. You can start with Springbok carpaccio and keep going with filet steak or rump steak . The atmosphere is cool eventhoug e bit too noisy. Very good southafrican wine list. Next the restaurant a nice jazz club that offer a discount to Grillhouse clients .

The Grill House has got to be the best steak house in Joburg. Excellent waiters who provide a very good service, food that you know you can always rely on, finest cuts of meat and tastiest too. The cream on the top is the sensational selection of wine to choose from from affordable to only for the wealthy.
