“Good Steaks, Service a miss”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

We always visit Block House when we are in Hamburg. We went here for lunch and had the Filet Steak. The service was not as good as in the past. The waitress on the next door table had all 4 meals on a tray and handed them across the table for the guest to take out of her hand. That is not what I would expect from a good Restaurant !!! I did mention this to the Asst. Restaurant Manager. The Filet Steaks at Block House are small (180 grams) but the quality is very good and mostly consistent between all Restaurants. Potatoes are hit and miss. If you get one from ?? the skin could be bone hard and black in places. The salad and the garlic cream are excellent.

“Good meal!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

After just arriving in Hamburg, we had our first meal at Block House. We all had a steak for lunch - food flavor and was cooked to order. Very similar to an American steakhouse!

“Fast service, excellent food”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

We have eaten on many of Block House restaurants in Germany and this one delivers as well. 10-15 minutes after we entered the restaurant we ate our excellent steaks. The server was observant and gave os extras to our meal without charging for it. Yummy!

“Most cosy and best service of BH in Hamburg city center”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

While food in all BH is great ( and same ) service is the best as unrushed and off the general tourist track. Often favoured by locals . Service staff - some of them I remember seeing over last 10 years and stil working there - says a lot...

“The Block House - A Hamburg Institution”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Simply one of the best steaks you'll ever have. The seasoning is perfect, and their Steak Pfeffer is so good they sell it in the stores (along with their Sour Cream for the baked potatoes, and now their soups, sauces and even Carpaccio and more!). I usually try to go to the Block House at least once a week or so when I'm staying for an extended time in Hamburg, even if it's just for soup or one of their salads. The Carpaccio is simply the best I've had, anywhere. And they have a mean rib-eye. It's simple, it's delicious and it's consistently top notch. And maybe the best part is - they're open most nights until midnight!
