Description: In the heart of Sandton, on Nelson Mandela Square, is the flagship Johannesburg branch of The Butcher Shop & Grill: an institution in South African dining. For over 20 years, our unmatchable steakhouse has been as much a part of SA culture as sunshine, red wine and red meat. You could say it is a landmark on the culinary landscape (and we're now in Cape Town and the Middle East). But The Butcher Shop is also about family - and the laughter, memories and conversations shared with special people over great food at a top steakhouse. Our family business, handed down over three generations, is famed for its quality produce, extensive menu, separate butchery & deli and 800 passionate staff globally. In Johannesburg we're able to seat up to 600 guests, plus 22 guests in our exclusive private dining room. In Cape Town, we can accommodate 250 guests, with capacity for an additional 40 guests in our private dining room.

“Yawn, another good review”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

My joke is that every time I am in Joburg I end up here every night. This trip I ate here twice in four days. Seems to be the business dinner place. The food is actually quite good and I like the atmosphere. The prices are very reasonable for a meat house and the house wine is very drinkable. The service is very good. There are lots of seats so a group walking in can usually get a table. So overall a good choice.

“Great Steaks”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

If you like fresh, thick and tasty steaks, this is the place. It does get crowded so make reservations early.

“Good steaks!”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

Went to eat here about 4 times while on business in Johannesburg. I love steak and I must say it was excellent. My business partner made the mistake to order fish once, and it wasn't great though. He then sticked to the steak as well and we realized we can't go wrong on that.
Great location, good service.

“What a steak!”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

Although the quality of meat is really high in South Africa, the meat at this restaurant is really amazing and done to perfection! The prices are high relative to other places in SA but this is one place that you should go to when in JNB.
