I've been here quite a few times, and each time the experience is slightly different. It's kind of a hit and miss place. I've had an amazing blue cheese sauce steak, as well as an amazing starter of prawns, avo, and an awesome dip. But then there are other times where the food has been sub-par. My hubby will NEVER...

Went here for breakfast the other day. The breakfast took over 45minutes to be brought to us. Also they advertise a cake and coffee special when asked about it they have no cakes? So don't advertise it. We have also been there for dinner and they told us they out of patties for burgers. We tried to go for dinner... More

Sat down to what we though would be a nic steakhouse. Unfortunately alot on their menu wasn't available. The chicken snitchel that I had tasted like a toasted cheese sandwhich, which wasn't to bad. Would recommend the ribs as this is a Rib Joint and our friends were very happy with their ribs.

Service was shockingly slow, burger rolls were stale and my cajun chicken salad had about 5 little pieces of dried tasteless chicken on a pile of iceberg lettuce!!!

Not a lot of options so went for RJ's. Sat 15 minutes before the waiter asked us for drinks. Waited long for food. Noticed same issue with the table next to us. Food was nice though. Don't go here. U will be dissappointed

Visiting RJ's is a decision I immediately regretted. For some reason, the stained booths and dirty carpet did not scare is off and we proceeded to sit down. The steaks, to put it simply, were the worst steaks we have ever had. They tasted plastic and were not cooked to our specifications, which is detrimental considering they are a steak... More

Ive never been and was excited to hear they do hamburgers, so we went in and gave it a try. VENUE: is modern but sadly with no music to crreate a nice atmosphere. Great outlay for group events and birthdays or private dinner alike. MENU: True steak house menu, with steaks, ribs, chicken wings en BBQ sauce everywhere, however when... More

My husband and I, at my insistence visited RJ's, and I regret my decision. The "100%" fruit juices tasted offish, stale and hot. Then, during the meal, we were traumatised by cockroaches running all over our table! When the manager was called, he was at a loss for words. He could not even offer an apology but simply told us...

Omw. What steak house does not have chips available due to oil issues? What restaurant does not clear tables once patrons leave? Beware - ordering house wine and u get brought a more expensive option without being notified and they do NOT have a wine list. Ordering 3x spaghetti bolognaise 10 minutes later being told only 2 kids could eat... More
