“Pretty Good - noisy aircon !!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Went back to Sandton, Atholl Square restaurant. Good start by getting a free GrillHouse shuttle from the Hilton (and in fact a good finish as it took us back again !). There were two of us and we got taken to the top floor which had a reasonable atmosphere but quite noisy aircon so moved as far away from this as was possible but it was still slightly obtrusive. The restaurant was pleasently busy, especially for a Monday, but the service was still pretty good. Had no starters, in anticipation of a big main course, but the bread was a nice start to the meal. I had the mid size fillet, colleague had chicken breast, both were very good and I struggled to finish all my meat. Steak was done exactly as requested and complimented with a good house cabernet. This is my third time here and I would definitely go back.

“Top steakhouse in Jhb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

The Grillhouse never fails to disappoint as one of Johannesburgs best steakhouses. Decor is authentically "steakhouse-ish" and waiters appear to be in character too. Bread is DIVINE - do not skip even if you are on a low carb diet! Largest wine menu I've seen (even though i do not indulge). Steak always done to perfection with a wide variety of sides and sauces. Always busy and perfect for occasions and business meetings. The Rosebank branch has awesome private dining rooms which you may book. Do try Katzys next door too for good entertainment especially on a Thursday or Saturday!
