For anyone travelling to Joburg, this is the place for anything steak related. What makes it so special is the fact all steaks are seared on a Himalayan salt block, giving it a perfect all round cook. A tour of the kitchen and fridge is a must. All beef is either grass or grain fed, giving a selection second to... More

Best kept secret in johannesburg, the local grill is one of few restaurants in Johannesburg that serve grain fed and free range cattle beef. The difference in taste is so noticeable that you must try both to really experience the unique tastes. The staff can also go through their process of aged beef - amazing !

Lovely steaks and plenty of sides to choose from. Food was well prepared and delivered quickly by efficient staff. Only drawback for me was the high prices of the wine.

It was my first visit to the Local Grill in Parktown. I would certainly go there again if I wanted to eat steak. A busy place with parking difficult to find. But once inside you will not regret it. If you are a first time visitor you would get a tour of the kitchen and cold room and an interesting... More

The Local Grill is in Parktown North at the busy intersection of 3rd and 7th Avenues. I would certainly advise booking as the place was packed when we visited at 8pm on a Thursday evening. We were grateful we had booked and our table was ready and waiting. Service was brisk and friendly and despite the excellent wine list they... More

The Local Grill located on the corner of two streets has a lovely open feel about it. We shared starters and order a platter of grilled steak and chicken which was excellent. My host chose a Shiraz which I thought might be a bit overpowering but served slightly chilled it was beautiful!

Had a wonderful Friday night dinner here. Hadn't been in a while, and was reminded that I need to go back more often. We had the grassfed sirloin, prepared to perfection. Not many steakhouses in Joburg can get "medium rare" right. Great wine list and excellent service makes for a great dining experience.

This review is long overdue. I have been coming to Steve's Local Grill for years. I have never had a bad meal. The service is excellent and the waiters are very well trained in all areas. A visit to the cold room is a must in order to understand what ageing conditions are required to produce the perfect end product.
