“Great for Steak!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

Carnivores' heaven!
No starters, just a variety of steaks, and lamb chops!
Even the steaks are all served the same way....

To be honest, the steaks are good, even very good, and obviously they have a winning formula.
Service was slowish, another 1 or 2 waiters would have helped, especially as there is such a limited choice of food, and no starters to delay things.
There is a small choice of desserts, and we were given shooters on the house, without any prompting.
A good vibe, good at what they do!

“Best steaks anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

If you rant chicken, fish,or anything but steak this is not the place for you.
This is a steak house. You can have all types of steak done by the
Lovely Rose on the giant b.b.q. You can have steak plus chips or salad
Or half & half. You also get an egg on top our favorite is their follet. It is
To die for.

Joplins is just a bit outside the lovely Wilderness in South Africa.
We are going to Wilderness for the last ten years and Joplins
Serve the best stakes in the world. The beauty of this is that all steaks are
Less than 9 Euro.You will love the inside,It is like a wood cabil.

The owner, Rose is a hands on lovely girl. We had a party for 50
People and wr picked Joplins.

Enjoy.

“Extended trading hours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014 via mobile

After years of nags from her locals and loyal supporters, Rose, the owner told tonight that us as from April she will be extending her operating hours. So opening earlier to do lunches. Yay!

“Joplins for steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

If you don't want steak then don't go here. Steaks are great and so is the service. Pub style atmosphere with outside seating as well.

“Very good steak.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014 via mobile

Quite a basic menu but they do know how to do a good steak and they deliver on that ! Location is out of the way but worth the find. Good value for money and good service. Would go again for sure.
