Once you have been there you wil return many times. This place has become a regular dinning spot for my wife and I. The owner, Grant, is very hands on and his staff are outstanding in every way. The quality of the food must be...among the best in Port Elizabeth. A first class evening is garnered.More

Thank you for your wonderful review John. We much appreciate your support and frequent visits. Kind regards BSG
I've been told by some that I make great steaks. They may be right, but BSG makes them even better!
The couple of occasions our family has been here for dinners has never been disappointing and everyone has enjoyed whatever dish they've ordered. The meat...is of a high quality and the T-Bone and rump steaks, unless ordered done (dead!), are tender and juicy. I tried the kudu steak on last visit and it was delicious and the salad side dish was super fresh and equally enjoyable. Did I mention the awesome fried chips? The menu is not big, but that's probably why they can get every dish perfect most of the times. The reasonably priced wine list further adds to the overall meal satisfaction. The owner Grant is a great and very accommodating host and spent much time checking that all was well. We will certainly be back again and again!More
Are you looking for a great steak... or awesome lamb chops? Look no further than Backstreet Grill. I've never ever had sub standard food here - I don't know how they do it, but those steaks are always 100% perfect. I love the way the...chips and veggies are served and the fact that you can go and pick your bottle of wine off the "wine wall". Brilliant vibe and atmosphere.More

Thank you so much for the great review Sharon! Always good to hear that our steaks are enjoyed and that our customers return for more! Much appreciated x kind regards BSG
This was our third and fourth visits to this marvellous restaurant and just like on previous occasions my wife and I enjoyed everything about it. The service is high class, greeted at the door with a smiling face and genuine warmth. The owner came and...chatted to us as if we were old friends. But the prize for the best thing about the Backstreet grill is the food, this is close to perfection. Whilst there I had Kudu and Impala, the Impala on the owners recommendation. Both meals were an absolute delight along with the fillet steak that my wife had. If it was possible to take a restaurant with me on my travels the Backstreet grill would be the one!More

If you are looking for a great steak and even better service, this is the place to go. The waiters are very knowledgable about their menu and their food and the steaks are done perfectly. Service is quick and friendly. The owner/manager came to the...table and greeted me by name ( I made the booking under my name) - that shows someone who care about his customers. You wo 't be sorry!More
