There is no doubt that Steve has a recipe for success in the Local Grill. Your choice of steak by age and cut , is the only real choose. The personal touch is evident through everything that this restaurant offers. Not many ,will venture opening the kitchen to patrons. This is a great touch and well worth asking the waiters... More

They do beef here! Grass fed or grain fed, dry aged or wet aged, you decide!! They explain to you all the differences in a quick kitchen tour where they explain some of the cooking methods. They have other meats on offer including chicken, lamb and even salmon but it really is about the steak here. I was craving a... More

We were invited to do "kitchen tour" that was fun but also assisted all to decide on their meat cut/aging/feed etc. The steaks were all very good or excellent and the sides tasty and of good size. All supported by a good wine list. The services was of a... More

Arguably one of the best steakhouses in Johannesburg, The Local Grill offers great service, a pleasant ambiance and consistently high quality food. If you're a first time visitor, take them up on the offer of a tour around the cold room - their in-depth understanding of their product is impressive.

We had a nice meal here. The steaks are delicious, wines inexpensive and decent. The waitress gave my dessert with both ice cream and fresh cream. Definitely recommended and we will go again.

So the waiter recommended the 35 day wet aged organic sirloin and we figured we really wanted a fillet but were tempted by his recommendation. So we went with a 200g sirloin to his recommendation and still had a 300g fillet each (I know, seriously greedy, but these steaks are just awesome). So when it all arrived, it turned out... More
