This restaurant was in a mall serving steak, which we had wanted for lunch. You seat yourself and order from the menu. There is no substitute for potatoes or whatever you want to add to a hamburger. I order Salad and Stark tartar, which was fresh but served on a sweet black bread not toast. My son order a Onion... More

We have been visiting Block House several times, and have always found it nice. This time the waiter gave us 10 seconds to decide, and it was served in an almost unfriendly manner. The beef was okay, but I think it is the last time.

Fast service, tasty steak & delicious salad, price a bit pricey but it's ok when you missed a bit of English food.

Not particularly cheap but fabulous food and a menu in English (sorry I know we are in Germany, but so far we have chosen some dodgy things lol!!) Queuing out if the door, very popular and deservedly so!

As a frequent visitor of Hamburg, I regularly end up here for dinner. The first time I went there because it was close to the hotel, and the weather was bad, so why not try it out. I never did regret that day. It´s a place where you can show up even without reservation, and can have good and honest... More

Ate here on a family Christmas trip - a group of six. Both adults and kid had a nice experience. Great tender steak, baked potato and salad. They managed to get us a table in less than ten minuts, despite it being very very busy. Food came quickly. Nice atmosphere and a great view. Prices were excellent - just under... More

As a beer guy, meat was OK but one lager and one weiß? I miss a few Belgian and perhaps som ipa's to make the visit much better.
