Don't go for the food lol

This is a good nit out where all the young and trendy go to show off there bods, it's the happening place.... A mixed gay straight crowd so don't go if thats a problem... Lots of bear skin... The food is poor at best but that's not what you go for...

beefcakes is a great spot for early drinks and a very decent dinner. if u dont mind being among dozens of girls celebrating birthdays or bachelorette of course. started as a gay only spot became the favourite place for the female crowd due to the very beautiful employees who after a certain point take their tops off. Really good drug... More

A friend had her hen party at Beefcakes the other evening, there were twenty-five of us.. We all paid for our meal and the show in advance, a R260 a head, and drinks were to be paid for individually at the bar. The food was extremely disappointing, only a small dry burger each with very inadequate bowls of toppings supplied... More

Had my 45th birthday party there on Wednesday evening. Had a absolutely fabulous evening. Read some reviews that to many hen parties and too many women!! So much for equality..... We were a group of slightly older gay men but we had a great time. The Drag show Mary Scary was on fire with the whole room, included everyone in... More

We went to Beefcakes for my bachelorette party and we had an absolute blast! There was some confusion about our reservation when we arrived, but the manager quickly & efficiently sorted it out & even brought us a round of shots to apologise. We got the package which included a burger, a punch jug & a round of shooters. The... More

I got a to-go sampler platter of nachos, jalapeno poppers and a few other things. All took a long time to cook and still managed to be soggy. Our hotel was practically next door, so it's not like it was transport time...everything tasted as if it been sitting in a steaming to-go box for a long time when I know... More

Don't get me wrong the waiters are very pleasant to look at but the majority of guests where female. And waiters are mostly straight. We have been three times now and every time I leave with a bitter aftertaste. I think next time somebody invites me to go here I'll pass. On top of that they are now charging for... More

We came two years ago twice, but it's not the same anymore. To start, it was full of noisy girls, very loud. We were maybe the only gay couple in the place . The bubblegum cocktail was very nice but the rest was average, the onion rings were greasy and tasteless. As well as the burgers, less than average.The waiters... More
