Go and try it for yourself! Quality is everything! Grass-fed beef, great wine list, and the most passionate proprietors in the industry. Ask questions if you like meat!

The local grill is a very busy restaurant which serves excellent steaks. The staff are very enthusiastic however as the restaurant is very noisy I felt that we were almost shouting our orders - not a place for a quiet dinner but then again the hustle and bustle adds to the appeal.The wine list is good but a little bit pricy.

Hi Gehard
Your reviews are always constructive and appreciated, thank you.
We are currently in the process of opening a Local Grill in Cape Town and pleased to inform you that the waiters are mostly students with a better understanding for westernized dining. Johannesburg simply does not have the same demand by students as they seem to prefer more glamourous work. We welcome any student applicant but these have a very low success rate. STUDENTS WELCOME.
Regards
Steve

It is really the best meat you can find in Jozi. Those guys really mastered the art of meat, from its origin, type and fed. It is as succulent as it get. Try it out! You will leak your fingers!!!

Love the private areas. The fillet steak with the pepper sauce really to die for. You do not need a steak knife.....a normal knife cuts through like it's butter. The bar area a bit rowdy sometimes but then just choose a table away from it. Venue big enought to cater for all. Usually I skip the starter....portions are extremely generous.

The Local Grill in Parktown North has very good steaks. However the restaurant needs to sort out the acoustics, as it is very noisy, at times unpleasantly so. Service is so, so and while the staff are enthusiastic the staff need more training. The wine list is fair.
