Dear diners, to reserve for groups of 12 or more people, please contact the restaurant directly.
There are a few things you think of when you think of America: the Wild West, the New York skyline, the glitz and glamour of Los Angeles...morbid obesity, Donald Trump, huge incarceration rates...it’s a mixed bag. While Deathrow Diner might sound like it harks towards the latter three options, in fact it leans towards the former, with a menu that brings the very best of modern American cooking to the streets of Liverpool, from burgers and barbecue to wings and ribs and plenty more besides. Throw in a fair few drinks options – cocktails, beers, speciality soft drinks and milkshakes – and an ambience that recalls all of the gin joints in all the towns in all the world. Walk into theirs by wandering over to Hope Street in the Georgian Quarter for an American restaurant in Liverpool that is well worth a slice of your time. Book now.
If you’re into American things, then you need to get yourself over to Liverpool’s Georgian Quarter. While the Georgian period was more typically associated with shooting Americans in a series of colonial wars, relations have improved somewhat in the intervening 200 or so years, allowing our revolutionary Puritan offshoots to reestablish themselves in the Motherland, going so far as to open restaurants in the heart of Liverpool city centre. Deathrow Diner bring the best in American cuisine to Hope Street, with a menu that features all the finest food from the land of the free and the home of the brave to the city of the Beatles and other, less good bands.
The culinary exports of America are manifold, and you can get a taste of them all at Deathrow Diner. Begin your Freedom Feast with a corn dog, maple popcorn chicken, mac and cheese bites or barbecue burnt ends, before moving onto a sharing platter of nachos, wings or ribs. The mains include burgers – of course – that can include everything from beef patties and the classic toppings of cheese, bacon and mustard to move outlandish fillings such as deep fried egg, coconut curry and tobacco onions. There’s plenty of meat to be found too, and whether you’re into steaks (they have 10oz ribeye or American strip) or chicken then you’re in for a treat. Do remember to book a table, however, as these are some of the best burgers in Liverpool, among their other delicacies, so Deathrow Diner can get crowded on occasion. For bookings of 12 or above, please contact the restaurant directly.
So good, guys. The Lady in the Radiator (veggie burger) was so incredible that my meat-eating friends will be ordering it next time. Such an amazing find. We’ll be back VERY SOON.
The food was excellent - we were full to the brim! The staff were really friendly and helpful. We would definitely pay a visit again
Very good service and food is served really quick and the food is amazing. The atmosphere in the really nice in there and the staff were lovely.
Fantastic food, brilliant and quick service. Friendly staff and great atmosphere. We will definitely return! I had the ribs and my boyfriend had the burger, both incredible!
Fantastic time at Death Row Diner fabulous friendly and helpful staff. Could not fault the food at all. Starters were plenty and very tasty indeed. Had mac and cheese bites, calamari and nachos. All had burgers and different chips. Very very yummy! My little boy loved the lollipops in the burgers and was asking us if he could have ours. The waiter heard him and brought a handful over to him. He can't wait to go back - neither can I.
We had high expectations as a few friends had recommended trying the place, so thought we'd have an early dinner prior to a show we were going to later that evening. However we were very disappointed by the level of service, despite the quality of the food being very good. We arrived at 17:30 and our show was due to start shortly after 19:30, I think many people would reasonably assume that two hours is enough time to grab dinner. However despite arriving just before 17:30, we had a very long wait for the food. The starters came out relatively quickly, maybe within 30 minutes. However the mains were a long wait (we'd only ordered burgers from the standard menu, nothing special) and a couple sat next to us who had arrived 20mins after we did received their mains first! By 19:00 our mains had still not arrived, we got them about 5 mins later and had to request the bill right away so that we were able to leave straight after eating. Unfortunately as we had to eat the meal so quickly, we both felt ill afterwards too. There was nothing to fault with the food itself, it was very tasty, but it took far too long to come out and the service itself was slow as it was difficult to get the staffs attention. It wasn't a particularly busy evening and it was quite frustrating seeing deliveroo orders being sent out of the kitchen at frequent intervals, I can only assume there was either an issue in the kitchen causing the delay or takeout orders were being prioritised over diners in the actual restaurant. Definitely did not live up to the hype I've heard, however we did agree it would be worth trying again as everywhere has off nights on occasion, although we definitely would never go here when we have any plans afterwards!
This is one of those rare places that gets dining out right. Starting at street level, you're drawn down to a mysterious low-lit basement where you are greeted by an attentive water or waitress. On less busy evenings you're given the choice of choosing where to sit (the rearmost centre is a favourite of mine). The attentiveness continues as you're asked if you're ready to choose a drink from the menu, or if you'd prefer have a few minutes to study the assortment of soft and hard drinks on offer. The food offering is exemplary, spanning from lighter bites (deep fried lasagne bites are a firm favourite of mine) to more hearty dishes such as mouthwatering burgers, steaks and chicken. If you're in the Hope Street area of Liverpool I'd highly recommended visiting Death Row Diner for top class food, not to mention the story that Death Row Diner is themed on.
The food was absolutely gorgeous, our drinks came rather quickly ordered, and our food, although not exactly quick, came at a perfectly reasonable time. The staff are very kind and polite, and clearly are invested in helping provide a quality experience to the diner. The setting was also very, very lovely, a definitive turn for the better from most other restaurants I have been to. I would most certainly go again, either for another birthday meal, or simply as a nice Friday meal with friends.
I turned up.. starvin !!! The staff were really nice, helpful 10/10. Burnt brisket for starter with a half rack of ribs.VERY NICE... Smoke me burger(xtra bacon) & fries... for main... OMG. AMAZIN.... BEST BURGER IVE EVER HAD... EVER !!! & i know me burgers !!! Also it stayed in 1 piece, no burger slip or nottin... Swilled down with a shake... JESUS TONITE...wow.... cudnt do a desert, properly stuffed.... infact, couldnt do anythink all night.... will deffinately go back again.... Deffo.....
Great quality food and lovely staff! Couldn’t recommend the chicken Katsu enough and the cocktails were strong on the alcohol front so you got your money’s worth. The only crtitisism I would have is that they made an error with our order and made an extra burger. They said it was there mistake and they would take it off the bill but it was only after we had all paid we realised we had still paid for it. That being said we would still return, the service was lovely and it was an easy mistake.
