“Never a disappointment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

Whenever I find myself in Germany I always make a point to visit John Bentons. I am yet to be disappointed. My steak was cooked beautifully, and very reasonably priced (I ordered the steak special of the day)
The quality of meat is fantastic, well seasoned and cooked well, myself and partner ordered Medium-rare (english medium) though they did arrive more rare than expected, it was still beautiful to eat.
Would recommend booking, they will say you only have the table for an hour and a half but dont let this put you off, it's standard practice and you wont get thrown out!

“mediocre Steakhouse for the tourist masses - better alternatives available”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

When John Benton opened years ago in Ulm it was maybe the only steakhouse in town. 2013 most restaurants have taken over the steak hype in their menus. So better alternatives (e.g. Pflugmerzler) are available and there is no reason to order a mediocre "cheap" steak here. Side dishes are made like in canteen, salads from buffet absolutely can't compete. I think that value is low in this place and wouldn't recommend to anybody!

“Good food at Good Prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

We turned up fairly late (after 10pm) and were warmly welcomed. The location is right behind the Rathaus in the old town. The menu is extensive with a good variety of steaks and "JB specials" which we both had. Good, friendly service and nice sized portions. The food arrived quite quickly and steaks were well cooked with salads and French fries on the side. This is quite a busy place and you can see why - good food, good service in an excellent location. Would recommend.
