“Avoid”
Reviewed December 3, 2013 via mobile

I have been to this restsurant many times. Not by choice but because family live close by and they like simple food.

It has never been good but this time was terrible.

We waited an hour and a half for our food. None of the steaks were cooked to the orders. Over cooked, tough and tasteless. Onion rings greasy. Salad boring.
Service was terrible. Had to get up and find someone to serve us.

The are many fine restaurants in the area. Go to them or even the spur which serves better steaks.

“The worst steaks I've ever eaten”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

I have eaten at this location a number of times for their lunch buffet which was always good.
With this in mind, I took some friends for dinner and we all ordered steaks.
When the very small steaks arrived, you could not cut any of them even if you had a bloody chain saw.

NEVER AGAIN!!!!!

Definitely not recommended and will never go back there again.

The management recommended the steaks ordered and was not apologetic.

All that was said " sorry you were not happy"

“Steak house with a few popular favourites”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

I often eat here, sometimes it is a hit and other times.... are not so great. But what keeps me coming back is the South African favorites. On the last occasion I ate here, the rice side dish was over cooked and was tasteless but the waiter exchanged it for chips which were a lot better. Other than that the service was good.

“Good steak, poor service”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Having eaten here twice in a week, service got worse. First time plates had not been cleared and mains were delivered to the table, then having not finished mains, waitress wanted to clear plates! Second time started well, but that's where it ended......waiter cleared food away and we were still eating....the side dish we hadn't finished yet he took it away, then came back and cleared plates and glasses and left us nearly 40 minutes before we decided to leave paying our bill on exit.......sad thing was the maître'd had walked every table in the restaurant checking all was fine and passed ours 3 times seeing we had an empty table....guest came and went he still walked and never said a word........! If you want excellent steak go, service though!
