Had dinner on a Saturday night recently with some mates and while it was OK there's certainly a lot better available close by. Drinks are cheap though but if you're wanting a meal i would walk across to Southbank.

It is a great place to sit down with your mates and have a great meal and some amazing beers on a rainy day. Food is delicious and very good quality, even though it is a pub food. They have an extensive beer list on tap, some of it they brew themselves. Give it a try, would not be disappointed.

Stopped in for an evening drink after a business dinner out. Young & Jacksons is an Iconic, historic Melbourne Hotel/pub. There are a few different bars spread over a couple of levels in this hotel. You will get all sorts of clientele in there. From the young & youthful, the sports fans glued to the game on the big screen,... More

Over from Perth and felt like a bit of lunch and a drink, bypassed quite a few establishments offering great lunch deals to come to this establishment, a decision I regret. The service at the bar was exceptional, the variety of beer on tap was good and that's where it ends. My partner and I ordered the 250g steak with... More

I was heading for Flinders Street Station with a couple of friends following a business meeting and we were looking for somewhere for a quiet drink where we could discuss the next steps. I hadn’t been in Young and Jacksons for years and my memories were of a crowded and noisy pub, but my colleagues knew better, and the upstairs... More

We were amazed last night re the rudeness of the barman ….. after placing our orders including a glass of reisling we tasted it & said the reisling was far too sweet. The bar attendant then went on & on about how every reisling is sweet even though we said most Australians reislings are not. We ended up having to... More

Very iconic location nead Flinder Street Station, right in heart of city. Always means its pretty busy, but worth a look and a few drinks. Good atmosphere and there's quite a few bars spread over a few levels. Service always good and good range of beers on tap.
