Such a shame we couldn't stay for the band

As The Grillhouse was full, rather than wait we went next door to their affiliated bar Katzy's and paid R100 cover-charge per person as there was a band scheduled to play that night. A brilliant cigar/jazz lounge environment complemented by the Grilllhouse Menu - great combo. We were served... read more

Yet once again I am in Jozi on business, this time attending a conference in a hotel I will review later , located just a short walk from Rosebank mall. The Grillhouse wont work for you unless you reserve a table... any day of the week. It is very popular with the business community, loud and buzzling. Food and drink... More

Had dinner at The Grillhouse last night and it was great. We were meant to have dinner in Braamfontein, however, there was no electricity. We turned up to The Grillhouse with no booking on a Saturday night expecting not to get a table, but we only waited about 20 minutes in the bar and got a seat. Huge steaks, very... More

This restaurant is huge and, believe it or not, you need to make a reservation most nights. Always buzzing with business people meeting and partying. Average wine list and great steak. A traditional steak house. They always have fresh oysters to boot.

I have been to the Grillhouse many times, often for business, but sometimes with my friends. The food has always been top notch, and the service very professional (attentive but not overbearing). Thoroughly recommended.

I visited the Grillhouse for a business dinner and it was out of this world. We were about 20ppl for dinner and each and every single person was blown away by the fantastic food and outstanding service. Each starter, main and dessert was made to perfection and timing between meals was spot on. What a brilliant evening. Thank you

We were a party of 3. Haloumi and Greek Salad starters were delicious. We all ordered a different main- a hamburger, awesome Patty, big, tasty. A health chicken breast- with veggies to die for. The chicken was tender and tasty. Steak - medium sirloin steak, with chips that melt in your mouth. I had the steak with a spicy rub... More
