Had a amazing experience, delicious food. Loved the meat and the sauces. The ambiance was awesome and super attentive service from everyone I contacted with. Spectacular steak with many many choices.

The veggies were nice but the butternut was undercooked. The burger was a joke and almost R200. For what?? Some crumbling mince. The steak was dry. That’s not the Uber driver’s fault. That’s the restaurant’s fault and we can’t get hold of them on any...platform…not even the phone.More

We went for a weekday lunch - the ambience was relaxed and the service attentive. The food was amazing, from start to finish. My husband likes his meat "well done" which I expected might get us raised eyebrows in a dedicated steak joint of note,...but we were accommodated with no drama.More

I have been dining here for over 8 years and it still one of the best Steakhouses in Gauteng. What really surprised us is that the place was only 30% full! On payday weekend as well. Maybe its because the restaurant doesn't have a real...glamour appeal to those who want to be seen, but that is one of the huge attractions. How sad it is that these days patrons seem to go dining not for the food or service. My fellow guests hadn't been to the restaurant before so we had the mixed grill and every steak was exceptional. Service was excellent and the only slight criticism is that the wine list is relatively short. Come on people, support this excellent restaurant or it will disappear which will be incredibly sad.More

The service from our waiter was appalling, telling us how we shud have our steaks. Clearing tables while we are still eating and then demanding a huge tip for crap service. Definitely won't be going back .

Easy to find and well located. Took an uber so not sure how parking works. We were well recieved however after we had earlier reserving table 52 by the fire place on a cold Joburg night, we found they had given it to another family...despite an empty resturant. After speaking with manger we were given finally given our reserved table uncomfortable negotiations which affected our mood. They made up by giving us complimentary wine. Wide selection of meat cooked/ grilled to perfection. Generous portions and sides. Ask to tour the cold room- lots of interesting info on different cuts of meat. Arrive early as currentregulations COVID stipulate restaurants close business by 10pm. Last orders we were told are 08:30 pm to facilitate 10pm close. Save for our reservation glitch, highly recommendedMore

A great spot for a great steak and nice bottle of wine. The Steak selection which can be viewed is very impressive and excellent. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The Quality for the money = excellent value also in my opinion. A great...spotMore

Have been a huge fan of the Local Grill since it first opened. And is the place I’ll always take out-of-towners or business associates. Best meat, great people (thank you owner Steve - you always make me feel appreciated!) and if there’s bobotie on the...menu, don’t miss it! My favourite ‘local’.More
