Reviewed 18 May 2022

Longhorn Grill was recommended to us by A Little Guesthouse. Welcomed and shown to a table without any delay. Drinks order taken and delivered in a short time. Food ordered after some advice from the waiter and again delivered without delay. The food was delicious,...cooked as requested and served efficiently. The only negative comment from us is that it was very noisy, even though we were told it was a "quiet" night. It didn't detract from the good experience. Highly recommended for a well prepared, well served meal. Bill & Joy PhelpsMore

On a recent trip to Bloemfontein, the Longhorn restaurant was recommended to us. We enjoyed our meals and service so much - we returned for supper on the the two subsequent evenings. Great menu - loads of options and some awesome new twists on some...classic steak house old school favourites. Can't wait to return on our next trip. Would have been a perfect 10/10 if they had more beer on tap options!More

The restaurant is well appointed with a good menu and reasonable prices. Our meal was well prepared and my steak was presented as ordered. My wife had the pork belly which she really enjoyed. Then she asked for a glass of warm water after the...meal. When the bill arrived I noticed that the glass of water was charged at R6.10. I pointed this out to the waiter who informed me that cold water was free but warm water attracted a charge of R 6.10. I have eaten in restaurants in over 20 countries and in countless restaurants across the country and never been requested to pay for a glass of tap water. Come on, "Where on earth has this ridiculous practice come from?" It is iniquitous and a good restaurant such as yours does not need to resort to such a cheap practice.More

We asked a local for a recommendation and we were not disappointed. The food was absolutely spectacular. It is rare that a steak is cooked correctly and it was perfect. The basting was lovely, and because I asked them to be generous with it I...even got a little bowl extra on the side. The spinach was amazing and instead of pumpkin it was carrots cooked incredibly. A nice change from the usual South African standard fare. Our waiter was new, not very confident but did a decent job of it. I am sure he will be fine. The Malva pudding may well be there best think I have ever ever every had in my life. I will go back just for that. Perfectly moist, taste incredible, just wow. That said, the ice cream was less nice than cheap Macdonalds Ice cream so that let it down. It also said Creme Anglaise on the menu and box custard is not Creme Anglaise. They must call it what it is, boxed custard. Or make it correctly. Our only criticism is of the crème Brule. It was over cooked on the custard and nearly crumbly - they need to take it off the heat before its set so it sets as it cools. Also, there was virtually no crust on top, and what was there was gritty and unmelted. Awful. We sent it back. I don't mind this too much as everything else was perfect. What really annoyed me, enough to have to wait to write this review, is that when the manager was told, he didnt bother to come and see us himself. We watched the manager all night. He didnt move once from the front desk. He lorded it over the staff the whole evening. I think one of the best things when I eat out is when the manger takes the time to see if all is well. He doesnt have to speak to everyone, but to take a gander around the place. Especially a place as big as this where he simply cannot see the whole space from his "spot". The kitchen and the staff obviously take pride in what they do, I feel management needs to be less entitled and more interested in those frequenting the restaurant.More

Excellent but very rich seafood curry, but a terrible piece of steak with more than half consisting of fat and gristle. The reaction when mentioning this to the manager was to be told that I should have told the waiter when ordering that I do...not want it like that and that all steak comes with fat and sinew! Slow service from an obvious new recruit but granted that it was a busy night.More

The meal was excellent. The waiter was excellent. A nearby table had bubbly teenage twin girls celebrating their birthday. They had a HUGE cake and accompanied their waiter into the kitchen to share the cake with the staff. Then came the atmosphere killer. Someone followed...them into the kitchen, started shouting and swearing at the staff at the top of his voice. We could hear every word.More

Absolutely pathetic service. Draft beer watery, half of my 500gm steak was a piece of fat. Waited 30 min between drinks service, and restaurant was not busy.
