“Service was slow and food was poor”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014 via mobile

We arrived on Saturday after booking a table for 3, they sat us slowly, and only came back to ask for drinks after 10 minutes...
We had our starters, which were ok, and it took 40 minutes until the mains arrived, my ribs were dry, and my friends steak was a bad cut, smelled funky, we got a new steak for her.
The servers were inattentive.

“Truly American Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Being an EXPAT American living in Germany for a bit over 134 years, once in a while look for an "authentic" American styled restaurant. Living in Hamburg, there seem to be several, but so far, until this place, the "style" is more in word than in reality. Nothing at all wrong with the meal last night: sweet potatoes fries for the starter and chuck steak for me and ribs for my German partner. Service was fine, not hovering! I do not know IF the service people speak any English. Generally when they hear me they at least attempt. Not last night. Enjoyed and will definitely go back. Anxious to try the Philly Cheese Steak item. Much outdoor seating and seeming large number of tables inside.

Back in the 90s there was a Meatpackers Restaurant in Cologne. The Burgers were excellent.
Now Meatpackers opened a restaurant in Hamburg.

Order a Chili Cheese Burger there and you will get a Cheeseburger with Chili con Carne on top, which is another dish on the menue. Worst: The Chili con Carne tastes tasteless.
The fries that come with the burger are not made from fresh potatoes. They look like McDonald fries from the deep cooler and so they do taste.
Order a brownie for desert which is advertised as a juicy treat with caramelled walnuts. The Brownie was absolutely dry, tasted more of water than chcolate and the walnuts were not caramelled at all.
Order a cheesecake and you will receive just the cream cheese filling without the crunchy flan case. The filling is warm and not cooled. So it is not a nice experience in the mouth, but a slimy one. It comes with some drops of a pre-made forest-fruit-sauce. Absolutely uncompassionate.
No, the restaurant is not worth it ...
