Lots of locals & visitors seem to know about this place & enjoy the reliable grills combined with better than average salad bar. Nothing exotic or unusual - but a reliable place for meat & salad

We took a work colleague to dinner for his 60th at the Jailhouse. It was fantastic. They allowed us to have a small corner to ourselves. It was very atmospheric and although packed to the rafters, we had personal service and nothing seemed rushed. New Favourite? Maybe...

The grill needs to be cleaned, my steak tasted like it had burnt food imprinted on it. Special burger didn't taste like anything special. Service was great though, staff is friendly and attentive, salad bar is reasonable.

The food was amazing, the staff were very friendly and the decor was wicked. We both ordered medium rare steaks which were cooked perfectly and promptly. We will be visiting again next week.

Everyone was quite happy with their meal(minus potato). The ribs are delicious and super tender! They have a salad bar which has extensive options and is delicious. My only fault would be... More

Quite nice for a grill house - but the salad bar left a lot to be desired. The salad bar came included with the main but would not bother to pay for it separately (e.g. with an entrée) as disappointing. The Moroccan Chicken was beautiful, good size portions.

Great service, the food was good and they have a very good salad bar. All meals were served at the same time and they were large servings.

This is a unique way to eat dinner. They offer different meats and sizes from the grill and have a salad bar which is a help yourself situation. We chose the whole side of duck chargrilled in a sticky sauce that was delicious. We were very impressed with the variety of salad and hot vegetables at the salad bar.
