We went to the Block house without reserving a table. The restaurant was almost filled up, but we got a table. We ordered a salad and the rib eye steak. The steak was rally tender, but the fries and the sauce was not impressing us. It was an ok experience, but the service and the side dishes could be improved.

We actually ate here 2 nights of our 5 night trip as we enjoyed the food. We went for a Hereford rib-eye the first night which comes with a salad starter included (not buffet style as it is brought to you by your waitress) and we went for a larger rib-eye the 2nd night which again came with a salad...

This is a friendly restaurant, part of a chain with thirty eight throughout Germany. The steaks were very good, cooked just as specified. The staff were friendly and helpful. We will seek out more from this chain on our travels.

This restaurant is where we have had just the best steak ever. It is primarily a steak house, but other good fare is to be had there also. It is on the first floor overlooking the magnificent Holstentor gateway, in the world heritage site city of Lubeck. My husband and I were perusing the menu outside, when an elderly lady... More

We had a great meal here that offered superb value for money for very good family food. Whilst we were waiting because it was busy due to the Christmas Markets at Lubeck, the manager made a point of bringing us and other waiting customers a glass of wine for the adults and water or juice for the kids, which was...

When going to Block House you get what you asked for. Very good combination of steaks, salad and side orders. Always the same good quality and good service. The Lübeck Block House is situated opposite of the Holstentor, so great view while eating. Try to get one of the window seats.

We are lucky enough to visit the beautiful city of Lubeck quite frequently, and always fit in a meal at Block House if we can. Informal and friendly service, and just the best steaks. Not too expensive, and a wonderful view of the HolstenTor if you get a window seat ( always ask for one when you make a reservation)

Thank Jeremy F
