Great steak joint, for those who love their meat. Located on Florida Street, next to a pub, it can get a bit crowded on Saturday nights. As I went alone, I ate at the bar, which was an experience in itself. Good service and choice of desserts.

Lovely ambience with fantastic food. I was there with a bunch of friends of which 2 were chefs themselves. Amazing starters and the Steak burger was to die for. It literally just melted in my mouth. I have no words to describe that feeling...you have to experience it.

First night in Durban we managed to book here for a Saturday night despite there being 6 of us, so we were lucky to have got in. There is no way to describe just how good the steaks were, we tried the Boss for two people which was fillet, rib eye, game and rump I think and cooked to your... More

II was in Durban with a couple of friends who were going big game hunting. They wanted to try some game so we went to Butcher Boys. Gemsbok was on the menu ( a large assortment of steaks, chops, etc. were listed along with the gemsbok). The gemsbok steaks were well-aged, tender and well prepared. The staff was very courteous;...

We had a fantastic steak and ribs meal - apparently the ribs were only 'half', but it must've been a huge animal as there was loads of meat!! Service was good - and it was very good value.
