Grill 66 New Menu

The popular Docklands Steakhouse & Wine Bar, Grill 66, has given their menu a makeover. Whilst keeping all your grilled favourites and steaks they have also added new sensational dishes such as the Grill 66 “Bigger than Ben-Hur” Burger- 300g prime beef burger with onion jam, iceberg lettuce, beetroot, bacon and eggs. Delicious!

If you can't decide what to order, they have created the ultimate feast- The Grill 66 platter for 2 which includes a mouthwatering selection from the grill: BBQ pork ribs, lamb cutlets, bull boar sausages, chicken kebabs, Buffalo wings and more with a selection of condiments.
