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.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "I have wanted to go to Andersons for some time but for one reason or another It was always put off for a rainy day. Well I have been now and I know what I have been missing. Wow. Beautiful restaurant, great atmosphere, fabulous service and the food. The food was delicious. I ordered the chowder off the specials menu and it was honestly the nicest food I have eaten in 10 years. Stunning. The vast array of steaks on offer is awesome. I chose the 14oz sirloin on the bone. You have to try it. My wife loves desserts and she really enjoyed her sundae. Book, go and you will not be disappointed."

  • "We had a post graduation dinner so it was a special occasion and other family members joined us from Worcestershire. Non of us had visited Andersons before. I particularly loved the fact it was a cellar - added atmosphere and quite unusual. The staff were pleasant and very helpful. The 7 of us shared bread and olives as a starter- absolutely delicious. The main courses came and they too were excellent. We chose both fish and steaks as main courses and all comments were very very complimentary. Puddings too were thoroughly enjoyed by all. I would certainly recommend this restaurant and hope to visit again when back in Birmingham."

  • "I've been to many steak houses, from New York to LA, and this one is better than any i have ever been to. the menu is original, and the Hangar steak in particular is amazing here. The starters are great too, and there are other options on the menu besides steak, with one or two veggie options for any friends who swing that way... the staff are also very very friendly, and its also surprisingly inexpensive. Highly recommended!"

  • "After several meals elsewhere being so disappointing we desperately needed our faith restoring in eating out. Andersons bar and grill delivered above and beyond with a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, great service and fantastically delicious food at a good price. We will definitely be returning and spreading the word on this great place."

  • "This restaurant provides a very comfortable place for an evening meal. The staff were efficient and friendly and the food was of a good standard. The starters were very well prepared and imaginative. The Steaks were cooked OK but nothing special. 2 of our party of 5 had desserts and were impressed. Total cost including two bottles of wine was £190. Overall a good night out and fair value for money."

  • "We had read all the glowing reports & was looking forward to a great night. Enjoyed the starters but then felt rushed, the mains came out too quick The house special steaks very disappointing."

  • "I took my boyfriend, our 6 year old daughter, his mother and father. The staff were so welcoming, kind and helpful. My daughter is a very fussy eater and they happily made her a meal that was perfect for her, which she loved! All of our starters were incredible. We all agreed the main course was the best steak we had ever eaten and desert was beautiful. I can't thank all of the staff at andersons for making our evening so wonderful and I definitely can not wait to go back there."

  • "We managed to arrange a pre-birthday dinner for my wife and I, (kids gone to grandparents), for a Saturday night. The food was excellent. For starters I had scallops and my wife had the deep fried Camembert. Both where delicious. For mains we both had steak and which where cooked to perfection. We were greedy and ordered a side of mushrooms and a side of onion rings. Both excellent, especially the onion rings. Price was reasonable considering the quality of the food. Would love to go again but we don't often find the time or the money to treat ourselves like this."

  • "Meal organised night before, managed to book a fantastic table for 4 on a friday evening. Splendid starters, and steak was sublime. Good price too!! Will defo be back"
    dined on 11/07/2014
  • "Well what can I say apart from brilliant from start to finish. Best steak ive ever had. I ordered the rare breed dextor sirlon chop that melted in my mouth. Was my partners bday and they wished him happy birthday and wrote it on his dessert which was a nice touch. We will be returning for my birthday in three weeks time."

  • "I can highly recommend Andersons for a fantastic dining experience. The food, the wine, the atmosphere, and especially the customer service...it was all outstanding quality!"
    dined on 09/07/2014
  • "Food was brilliant but service felt a little too quick and rushed, better to be fast than slow i guess but felt a little hurried."
    dined on 05/07/2014
  • "The only thing this restaurant has going for it is the cheerful staff. They are friendly and helpful. The starters came out a few minutes after the bread and roasted garlic and as the starter plates were taken the main course arrived. Our table was booked for 6.30 and after 3 courses we left at 7.30 so it was not a relaxing evening. If the food you want to be associated with is quality steak then that's what you should serve - the shorthorn sirloin and the rare breed Dexter sirloin were both very chewy and the chips were undercooked. I mentioned it to the waitress and she said 'oh sorry about that'. Very disappointing and we won't be going back"

  • "Lovely restaurant with great food, great service and really good value id hav paid double and still been happy well worth going to"
    dined on 01/07/2014
  • "This was booked through open table and I specially mentioned that it my wife's birthday. This was ignored. The couple opposite us must have also mentioned that it was a birthday celebration as they had balloons on their table and the staff wished him/her happy birthday. We were seated in the "corridor" section of the restaurant despite other more intimate tables being available. The food was good but the main course I had which was Surf & Turf was somewhat minimalist. The miniature piece of Monkfish was delicious but gone in two mouthfuls. The service was good although being in the "corridor" people walking past all the time was tiresome. In addition, whenever someone passed behind my chair due to the floor my chair wobbled."

  • "Every time I visit you are above and beyond my expectations! Faultless!"
    dined on 24/06/2014
  • "Fabulous choice from the menu and without doubt one of the best steaks in Birmingham. Menu also offers a choice of alternatives if steak isn't your favourite but then again it is badged up as a steak house. Service was also excellent and the surroundings gave an intimate feel. On top of that the cost is in my opinion extremely reasonable. The bill for 2 with starters, main and a decent bottle of wine was just over £70! You'd pay the same at less impressive steak chain restaurants but it will come nowhere near as good as this place. Thoroughly recommended."
    dined on 24/06/2014
  • "Checked this place out for a future booking for 8 people,the food and service was excellent and I have booked for the 8 as previously mentioned.Would highly recommend after my first visit."
    dined on 24/06/2014
  • "Fantastic food and lovely friendly staff, the big down fall is that it is just not suitable for a lovely summer afternoon as it was Tuesday 24th June. With it being situated below ground it felt very dark (it is very dimly lit) and no fresh air at all. This is shame as the food was fantastic , but we just could not wait to get out and get some fresh air. I would definitely visit again but I'm afraid it would be Autumn/Winter, not in the summer."
    dined on 24/06/2014
  • "This has become mine and my partners favourite restaurant. The food was perfect, the young man at the bar recommended an excellent wine and the waitress was very presentable and friendly. Food had great portions and so much taste. Outstanding."
    dined on 21/06/2014
  • "Booked Anderson's as a special treat for my boyfriend's birthday and so glad I did. We both thoroughly enjoyed the food and cannot find one negative thing to say about our visit. Steak was cooked just to our requirements, the side dishes we ordered were lovely and the sauces were hardly touched as the steak really did not need anything spoiling it - it was that tasty just on its own. Definitely worth the money, though saying that I've been to more expensive steak restaurants before and this place surpasses them. Would highly recommend."
    dined on 21/06/2014
  • "We chose to eat here to celebrate our anniversery after we couldn't get a table at a restaurant we were desperate eat at. Me and my wife were trying our best to not let that disappoinment effect our night... It was however. Once we received our first course we completely forgot about the other place! Then the main courses came and we fell i. Love with place. I highly recommend the andersons back to front for a main meal... I have never tasted a meal so good, I actually felt disappointed that i had finished it. Overall the restaurant was a nice place to eat, all of the staff from the moment we walked in until we left were very friendly and helpful. The starters aren't the biggest but the mains more than make up for it. Top class food"
    dined on 21/06/2014
  • "The ambience was perfect. The knowledge of staff excellent. The selection on the menu was just right..it was still difficult to choose from though as a lot of combinations i had not tried before . The arrival of starters and mains was timed just right..The steak was cooked perfectly . The accompanying vegetables and potatoes delicious . A good selecton of wines . I would definately go there again ."

  • "Booked a table at Andersons' for a birthday meal, as my sister had highly recommended it. Could not fault it! The atmosphere was exactly was we wanted for warm ambiance. Our starters were delicious, had the scallops with tempura prawns and roasted butternut squash soup - every mouthful devoured. Then shared the porterhouse steak with half fries and half potatoes and vegetables. Portions were very generous and more than enough for two to share. For desert I had the Eton mess, and my boyf was surprised with the lime and tequila cheesecake inc birthday candle - nice touch! A lovely evening and we are already trying to decide when to go back."

  • "Took my girlfriend for a meal here and I must say the food was amazing and as it was my G/F birthday the Cheif sent out a free dessert too x"

  • "Anderson's was somewhere I'd wanted to try for a long time and I chose it for my partner's birthday. When booking I said it was for a birthday and could we have a private table, this was granted. We were placed in a table out of the way, perfect. The service was great and our waitress even picked up on the fact it was someone's birthday at the table. Nice touch. We both ordered scallops (which were melt in the mouth), then both of us has the Aberdeen Angus fillet steaks - glorious! We ordered one dessert and then the kitchen brought out a 'happy birthday' plate with ice cream and a wee candle. This is going over and above and it was well received. I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant."
    dined on 05/06/2014
  • " We went for Sunday lunch and we all felt food really wasn't worth the money. The normal menu wasn't available and we were told we had 3 minutes to choose our food before the kitchen shut. The lamb was very fatty and the beef was dry, everything came seperatly and you had to portion for youself. For dessert the apple rhubarb crumble was not the nicest especially for the price. I will not be going back here for Sunday lunch it is not to the standard of their normal menu."

  • "Visited Anderson's on Saturday 31st May with my partner, the service and food were both excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending Anderson's. "

  • "recently discovered this restaurant and have now been three times and due to go again soon. a great choice of steaks and not once have they been less than perfect. also their scallops are to die for. its not cheap but quality comes at a price. I highly recommend it."

  • "Beautiful restaurant. Staff was lovely and patient when we was the last customers. They carried on serving us and offering desserts. Food was 10/10"

  • "The venue had a great atmosphere and the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Wine list was good and the menu provided a good range of choices without being too big. The food was well presented and we passed a very happy evening there."
    dined on 29/05/2014
  • "A really lovely restaurant for the area we were staying in. The restaurant was modern but had a rustic feel and I liked how the tables were spread out so you didn't feel encroached by others. The menu had an excellent selection of food, which made it difficult to choose what to eat! The servers were really helpful and left you time to chat without feeling rushed too. I would most definitely go back here and I highly recommend it. (Quite close to Snow Hill station too)"

  • "Lovely restaurant with great food! The steak is amazing and cooked to absolute perfection, definitely worth the price that it was and will be returning soon as I was left impressed "
    dined on 24/05/2014
  • "Visited Anderson's on 23/05/13 with my partner and our whole experience was outstanding. Staff were friendly, attentive and really knew what they were talking about with the steaks which was fantastic. For starter I had the pork belly - wonderfully moist meat with a crisp crackling top, and my partner had the duck which he loved - tried a little bit and the duck was smoked perfectly. For mains we both had the 10oz ribeye, and the chef was more than happy to make me a red wine sauce because I didn't like those on offer on the menu. Crushed Potatoes and onion rings incredible, and complimentary veg too. Chocolate indulgence dessert was the perfect end to an evening - very rich but that's exactly how we liked it! Will definitely be going back!"
    dined on 23/05/2014
  • "Steaks were fabulous value and were amongst the tastiest we have eaten - and we are steak eaters! I was very pleasantly surprised at the value of the meal. I am used to paying much more for this quality. The chips and rest of the food was just as good, it's a nice touch to have warm bread served as the starter. Added to that, it's a great atmosphere in a very cool part of town - so overall I can't fault it, we will be back."
    dined on 19/05/2014
  • "very much enjoyed, food was good though order the crushed potatoes rather than the chips with your steak, the meat was sublime, well worth it"

  • "We went for our anniversary and had a lovely evening. My husband had the hanger steak, it was as described by the waiter, full of flavour but not the softest of cuts, and I had the sirloin chop, cooked perfectly. Chips and veg equally tasty as were the sauces we chose, peppercorn and mushroom and garlic. The starters were great, wine nice. We didnt order desserts but the staff knew it was out anniversary so we got a lovely complimentary dessert which was a really sweet touch. It was out second visit and would definitely go back again"
