The pub when you are not really having a pub

This is a great choice for a casual night out. You can go for a Pub, cafe or restaurant atmosphere. The choice of atmosphere is what makes it work for most people. Good quick food that's not too expensive.

We had two takeaway pizzas from Grove and were impressed with the special meal deal prices. I really liked the vegetarian pizza toppings and my husband enjoyed his meatlovers. Good bases and decent prices.

Even without a booking we were made to feel very welcome for our midweek lunch. Our waiter was the owner of the restaurant and really nothing was too much trouble for him. One of his first questions was are you needing us to serve you quickly or would you prefer a more leisurely pace. My steak (eye fillet) was delicious... More

Went to The Gove, a busy little restaurant. Bookings are essential. Very attentive staff. A rustic setting. A sound menu. Lovely steak. Meals were prompt. Wine was nice. Our company this evening picked the location as they had a very positive experience and wanted to share the experience. Parking around the corner as Waterworks road can be busy. Menu not... More

This is a good restaurant and although not a 5 star I can recommend this to anyone wishing a good feed at a reasonable price. The service is exceptional and the cocktail specials are also great.

Looking for a nice somewhat roomy restaurant with great pizza's/Steaks, then this is it. Very accessible right on waterworks road and not that far from the Brisbane CBD. Since locating it I have been there fairly regularly and it has never disappointed. Theme nights are good and on Thursdays they have cocktails on special. They are so good I would... More

I went to The Grove Establishment with some family members for lunch in mid-August & we all thought it was fine. The ambience would probably be better at night, as it felt more like a beer garden during the day. The food was good - it was probably a little on the expensive side but on the whole we were...

We decided to go to The Grove as we had an entertainment book voucher. Tucked away in the Northern Suburbs this unassuming bar/restaurant is a must try. We dined upstairs and the decor is quaint with dark timber and modern art works, very stylish. We were seated in the front section but there is ample room further back into the... More

This was my 3rd visit here and must admit the ambience and service is first class, a very unasuming restaurant and bar hides behind the building facade. The meals, my first visit asked for a med/well steak, recieved a rare side of med, other meals were good but fine dining size, second visit mentioned my previous steak and this time... More
