Get a tour of the kitchen, then settle down for a delicious meal with wonderful waiters. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and will come back again.

We had a perfect meal here - so enjoyable we came back the next day to do a meat appreciation class. So many options with steak - who knew? Our waiter was helpful with choosing our meals and keep a good eye on us the whole night for drinks and anything we needed. This is how a good restaurant should be run. Great steak and desserts. Next day at the meat appreciation class we did it all again. Entrees in the wine room and then into the kitchen to see the meat in the fridge and then cook meat on the BBQ and salt blocks. All the time eating what was being cooked with some side dishes that were brought in for us. Then back to the wine room for dessert and coffee. So much food and all really good food. Learnt a lot that day while having a great time with friends. First place we will go when back in Joburg. Highly recommend

I don’t make a habit of writing reviews but just as I’m almost weekly drawn back to the epicenter of all that’s wondrously mouthwatering to satisfy my caniverous tendencies.. Local Grill is absolutely everything you have ever wanted in a truly perfect steak house .. Service to sauces beers to bone marrow salads to sirloins and my ultimate t bone to tenderness .. it’s just the restaurant you have to frequent cause you won’t be disappointed. Hey check out the Stella Artois onion rings and sigh off with an Advocaat

Visited the establishment for the 1st time with fellow colleagues from the UK. What an enjoyable evening. Went on the kitchen tour and through the meat section. The food and service was absolutely amazing. Would most definitely return in the near future.
