A word from Anderson's Bar & Grill
Situated on St Paul’s Church square, Anderson’s Bar and Grill is found in the interesting surroundings of former 18th century cellars. However this restaurant is as far from a dingy basement bar as it is possible to be – lush, sophisticated décor brings light and space to the brick arched room, changing displays of art is displayed on the walls and there’s a definite buzz to the atmosphere. With a dedication to providing great value food in a relaxed setting along with top quality service, Anderson’s Bar and Grill is already making its mark on the local dining scene. The food, sourced locally is – of course – hearty grill fayre but presented with a touch of class so even old favourites such as Barnsley chop or grilled plaice are actually rather special.

    We ate at anderson's for the first time and it was a fantastic experience. From the moment we entered we received a warm welcome from the barman and soon after we were seated and offered a great selection of mains and specials with recommendations for wine to complement our choice of food. The shorthorn fillet was delicious and served promptly followed by the delicious desserts, tequila lime cheesecake and Chocolate sundae. All the staff were knowledgable and friendly, and we will certainly be heading back to andersons. Thanks for a great night.

    Wonderful evening, personal friendly service, fabulous food-even converted my dad whose not a steak lover! Thoroughly enjoyed the evening, we were not rushed through so someone else could have the table. Waitresses were v knowledgeable of the food and specials, v attentive and good fun. Really enjoyed introducing my parents to a new place and andersons did not disappoint.

  • What a disappointment
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 18/10/2014
    I was distinctly disappointed with my meal. It was fine, the food was quite nice but that was it. It was only fine. For the price, for the waiting list (three weeks) and from the website I was expecting much more. The service was prompt, too prompt. Within two minutes of our olives landing on our table the waitress was already trying to hurry them away from us, barely touched. I would have liked more of a gap between courses to digest and talk. I had the distinct impression that as diners we were a annoyance to be gotten ridden of immediately. What's more, while our steaks were delicious the sides were very disappointing. The spinach was a cold soppy mess and the potatoes tasteless. I would not go back.

    The food was divine, only thing that spoiled it was that the gap between courses was very small, we has finished a 3 course meal with coffee in an hour! No sooner had we taken our last mouthful of one course the other was on its way! Such a shame as the food was gorgeous. The restaurant wasn't full either so it wasn't as if they needed us out for other diners. Would recommend this restaurant though and would like to go back again.

    Had a lovely meal with friends on Saturday 18 November. We all had different cuts of steak which were absolutely delicious. Considering the standard of food on offer the prices are extremely reasonable with delicious liqueur coffees to finish off. Thoroughly enjoyable evening made even better by a surprise dessert for my husband and I to share as it was our wedding anniversary. I think it's a shame the bar doesn't get busy as it's a lovely area and would add to the atmosphere a little after dining.

    It was my first time in Birmingham and we were going to a concert later on that evening. We were celebrating my boyfriends birthday and it was certainly a good choice. The staff was really polite, friendly and efficient. The food was lovely starter through to desert (including lovely Happy Birthday on the plate and a complimentary drink). All in all we had lovely time and I would definitely be back if in Birmingham.

    The food was fabulous and the service was very good. We came for a meal for my husbands birthday and the restaurant itself was very well decorated. The only suggestions I would make is to maybe improve the entrance a little bit as it feels like you are walking into a poorly fitted office until you reach the bar itself and then it is the complete opposite. Other than that it is a fantastic place to go and the staff are knowledgeable about the food which makes a refreshing change. would definitely recommend to anyone and would eat there again.

    We got a last minute table so when we arrived we were the second couple in. Nonetheless the restaurant soon filled up so we didn't feel too awkward for long. The food was fabulous. We shared the 30 oz porterhouse and it was done to perfection and the peppercorn sauce was also excellent. For dessert we shared an eton mess which was also lovely. Our bill came to £50 which is excellent value for money (Inc. 2 glasses of wine). I've previously eaten at Jamies Barbecoa where the bill, for a lower standard of steak, was triple. One of the best meals out my partner and I have had in Birmingham.

  • Not as expected
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 14/10/2014
    We were looking forward to a meal here after reading some good reviews. Booked a table at 8 and when we arrived the guy without an apology went away to set it up. He showed us to our table didn't offer an apology after leaving us to stand nor did he offer to take our coats. His appearance for a restaurant front of house is not good, greasy long hair. Menus came, specials announced then we had to wait for a while for an order. Steak pie no seasoning, very bland. Salmon fish cakes had little sign of salmon, scallops with black pudding was a main, £17 and 5 small scallops with poor black pudding. Surf and turf was excellent as was the pasta tortellini.apologies for the critical review, but it should have been better.

    This was our second visit to Anderson's, in what was only our second visit to Birmingham. We enjoyed it so much first time around, that my wife and I just had to come back......and this time we brought a friend for good measure! The welcome was very friendly and professional and the quality of the food was exceptional. The staff were extremely attentive and checking that everything was to our satisfaction. They didn't rush us out the door either! It was a relaxing and cosy atmosphere which enhanced our dining experience. Will definitely return again when we come back to Brum!

    Went to Anderson's to celebrate my birthday with my wife and four friends. I was really looking forward to the meal but actually it was a bit disappointing. My starter was lovely (one of the specials; scallops with crispy pork), but my main (surf and turf) just wasn't as good as expected - the monkfish was a tiny portion (a cylinder, perhaps an inch and half across) and the prawn had the oddest texture I've ever experienced, almost like cotton wool - not nice. That said, the service was friendly (if a tad slow), and the wine was delicious. My friends all seemed to enjoy their meals. My wife had garlic prawns to start and agreed that the texture was very odd and not very nice. Based on this experience, I don't think we'll be coming back.

    W e booked here for a special occasion my son and girlfriend had just got engaged and from the moment we walked in we were taken straight to our table. The service was outstanding the staff catered for all our needs. We all had a different steak and were not disappointed. The tables are all spaced out which was lovely as you had your privacy and the place has a really nice atmosphere too. we were all a little full after a starter and main but decided the lime cheesecake looked great so we had one between us and the waitress brought 2 one with congratulation written on the plate for my son and future daughter in law. nice touch. Thank you for a lovely evening.

    Went to Andersons for my OHs birthday and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere is cosy and intimate, due to the exposed brickwork, but it's not fuddy duddy or a place just for couples. The staff are attentive (but not in your face) and very knowledgeable about their menu ( truthful too - mine told me that while a particular cut of steak was extremely tasty, it would need a bit more chewing than say a fillet). Our steaks were cooked to perfection, served with chips and crushed potatoes with heaps of garlic - yummy, plus a little side salad. For sweet I had a tequila and lime cheesecake to die for - not too sweet, and a lovely zesty taste of lime. I heartily recommend Andersons if you want to go somewhere that knows it's meat!

    My first time at this restaurant. A but surprised when I arrived to find it in a basement, but the welcome was warm and the ambience was good. Good starter of salmon with a burgundy sauce which worked well with the pan fried fish. Crispy bream fillets with a sort if pea stew were delicious. Good veg and outstanding chips. Service was attentive, friendly and pretty (!). Drinks very well priced. What's not to like. Steaks are the big thing st this restaurant, and the ones I saw going to other tables looked tremendous. Good value, well cooked food with a good wine list.

    I took my partner to Anderson's for his birthday and the food was worth every penny. The service was fantastic and our waiter was particularly hospitable. The only criticism I have is that the drinks were quite expensive. However, this in no way dampened our dining experience. I would definitely go again and recommend to a friend.

    We have been to andersons a couple of times before and have enjoyed the food there. However this time we were very disappointed. I ordered mussels for starter and only about half were open to eat. We then ordered sirloin steak which was quite tough. We also ordered the beef rib, but this was extremely fatty and tough too. Really sorry to have a moan, we should really have said something at the time but we were a party of 4 and didn't like to make a fuss.

    I went to Anderson's with my boyfriend for his Graduation. We waited a while but was told to wait by the bar. We had 2 brilliant cocktails one a pinna colada and the other was a tropical one. The bar tender was very friendly, funny and very entertaining! When we were seated, they took us to a nice romantic table as I had requested. For starters we ordered Pork Belly, Crab Tortellini and the special pan fried scallops with pork. The pork was disappointing, but the other two were outstanding better than some 5 star places! We then had steaks which were also great mine came with monkfish and prawns. We then didn’t want dessert but they gave my boyfriend a congratulations dessert on the house. Ambiance very relaxed. I highly recommend!

    Not the biggest menu I've seen, but plenty here for those who like their steaks. My wife likes hers rare and generally chooses a fillet, so our host suggested a cut that she would like and also suggested that it was cooked slightly more than rare as it was on the bone and the fat would need a bit more time to transfer the flavour. She accepted the recommendation and was rewarded with a steak that she thoroughly enjoyed. My Surf and Turf was very enjoyable - even though I'm not the greatest fan of steak. All our food was presented well, without the fancy bits that add to the cost but not the quality of the food. Good service in a relaxed atmosphere. Well worth a visit and we will certainly be going back.
