About Us

In the year 2018 , a dream was realised and set in motion the wheels of The Empire Steak. We embarked on a mission to bring legendary steak to South Africa. Our passion for grilling, varying flavours, and trendy settings, set in motion The Empire Steak. We opened with confidence that the concept would kick off purely on our passion for serving the best steak. Today The Empire Steak is a well-known and well loved steakhouse in South Africa.


Born of fire and confirmed by loyal guests each day, The Empire Steak on Florida Road has grown to become the home for great steak done right. Founded in 2018 in South Africa, the steakhouse began with a passion for creating perfect steak and inspiration drawn from New York City. Today it specialises in prime-cut steaks and ribs, and extends that taste sensation to an array of light meals, seafood, salads, chicken, and popular New York themed items.

The grills burn and our passion for great steak will live on through our ever evolving menu, which comprises of the classics as well as the introduction of exciting and innovative specialty steaks on a regular basis. Whilst remaining trendy, and keeping up-to-date, the traditional favourites remain consistent, holding value through the richness of our traditions. As long as there are steak lovers to feed in South Africa, The Empire Steak will continue to exist.
