Great food, poor service!

Great food and set-up. Beef and burgers are generous and excellent quality. The waiter was totally unprofessional, absent, unattentive and unfriendly!

After reading some reviews about this restaurant my wife and I decided to give it a try. We were staying in white river and the reviews suggested that it was worthwhile driving the 40km distance. We were not disappointed at all. It was worth every effort. The food was delicious and the waitress was very friendly and helpful. The set... More

We had possibly the best steaks ever here, surpassing the famous sirloin in Fiji many years ago. Meat was luscious, sides were excellent, dessert was fantastic and the service from Moses was attentive and full of very dry humour. WONDERFUL.

We heard it's one of the Top 20 Steak houses in South Africa, so we had to try it. Food was amazing, presentation was very appealing, and the service great. One problem is, you eat way too much, but you just don't want to stop. Will definitely visit again! Azillahe Peens

This restaurant comes highly recommended on TripAdvisor so we decided to come here for dinner on Saturday evening. The food was superb! We tried the crocodile steaks which were very tasty, and the calamari and steak combo. The steak was cooked perfectly and the calamari was garlicky and flavourful. The pricing of the meals was also quite standard for a... More

A steak at Pioneers Butcher and Grill in Hazyview was a really good experience the Mozambican rump steak was first class while my wife had the pepper fillet. The waitress was attentive and the service prompt and efficient. The quality was first class and an extensive reasonably priced wine list was also a bonus. We will definitely re-visit.

On our first day to Hazyview we arrived at 14h50 at the Pioneer Butcher Grill. There were no other patrons, but as it was on a Monday, we went in. We asked if they were open and she (I assumed one of the managers) said that they close at 15h00 and re-open at 18h00, but welcome us in and say... More

We went to Pioneer's looking for game meat that might not be on the menu in the U.S. What a perfect find for that. All the food was great as was the South African wine. In addition to Kudu steak, we had dry-aged beef steak - both were perfectly prepared. Staff was very gracious too. The atmosphere was also right,... More
