Really great food couldn't fault it at all. The Medium steak I ate literally cut like butter it was superb. When we got there we had a short wait as the restaurant was full (on a Tuesday night). Tells you how popular it is

We went there for a quick lunch. Ate a cheeseburguer, a bacon burguer and overall it was a good meal. Prices ranged about 12 euros per burguer with 3 euros for beverage, which is a fair price in Germany. The meat was tender and well cooked, with the sauce enhancing the natural flavour of the beef. A good place for... More

Restaurant is nice, more american style I would say. Good for a quick steak. Atmosphere is not like a typical steak house, more like a good fast food place. Service is fast and nice, however during my many many visits already, things go wrong all the time. BUT it is fast and they are nice, customer friendly, it happens if... More

I saw this restaurant reviewed and wanted to give it a try. I arrived around 7pm and it was comfortably busy. The waitress was friendly and spoke good English. She brought me the English menu and the specials card -1lb of white German asparagus with a small steak, hollandaise sauce and new potatoes. A no brainier for me and it... More

Classic German pub where you can join grilled meat. I have been there with some friend which tasted different type of meat. I went for the hamburger which was delicius while the steaks of my friend were not very tender. Service not excellent above all for problems with English language.

This restaurant does steak, it does other things too but it primarily does steaks and it does them well. Our party of 14 didn't get a tough one.

We've picked the place at random while walking through the city and didn't regret it. Great selection of meats and both steaks were done beautifully. Highly recommended.

Hard to fault. We enjoyed a perfectly cooked steak, a tasty burger, good sides and reasonably priced drinks. Menu is in multiple European languages, which is a very nice touch. Excellent, welcoming staff. Thank you for a great meal!

Very popular restaurant. Food is very nice and the service is good. Well suited for families. We have visited their restaurants in Berlin and the experience was the same = good. Always a safe bet :-)

It was 35 years since I'd been to Hamburg - I used to live there and one of my favourite memories was the Block House Restaurants where I used to go when I fancied a good steak. They did not disappoint me - it was just as I remembered it. The menu format is the same, steak, baked potato and... More
