An average restaurant with satisfactory service. I was expecting a bit more quality and better atmosphere. Spur still the better option in my opinion for taking the family for a meal. If its a guys or girls night out, Dros would be the better option. Kids play area was also dismal and had not been maintainted recently.

Dropped in for lunch on a Saturday. The restaurant was not busy but sadly the service was vey slow. The waitrons are okay but I think the kitchen holds up the works. Waitrons pleasant enough otherwise. Just not pleasant having to ask for your food and ask for the bill and ask to pay ... The food was enjoyable. Nothing spectacular, although one of our guests thoroughly enjoyed the eisbein. Rest of us had pizza and burgers and they were acceptable. Just don't expect to be asked if you want anything else to drink after your first round. Seems the patron has to prompt all of the action.

I like meeting a pal of mine here for a beer or 2 after work because it is conveniently situated. The restaurant section is always empty.

This place lacks any form of "atmosphere"

The service was very dissappointing, our waiter took our drinks order, 15min later nothing, we got another waiter to take our order, nothing then the manager came along with another waiter, took our drinks and meal order. The steak and beef burger was very good. Unfortunately the vibe was not appealing inside, my son got to use a dirty high chair with a faulty safety belt which we could not undo. The children's game room is not available for kids, there is a trampoline outside though, if weather permits for use. The waiters, if not assigned to your table are extremely unhelpful.

The midrand branch of Dros is a better option. Or try the Spur...better vibe, atmosphere and food.

I have tried several of the Dros restaurants in the past so we gave this place a try on a sunday afternoon. It was very quiet , mainly families at the outside tables . The service was ok - average for a chain restaurant but the steaks we ordered were un edible. My husband had a well done rump which arrived bleeding but it at least looked like rump. Mine was to have been medium and was completly raw and did not even resemble a ladies rump steak. Both went back and the gnarled pieces of meat that cae back the second time looked and tasted even worse. No management in sight so we paid and left. Avoid this place!
