It was supposed to be a celebration of my mothers 89th birthday but the food was terrible. My beef schnitzel Burnt it tasted off, the beef was wafer thin, you would expect better from a fish and chip shop. My wife ordered the meals and mine came out half an hour later. In fact the service from go to finish... More

This is our local pub and so we frequent it on a weekly basis. The ambiance is very nice and relaxing although the outdoor lighting could be improved over some tables. We really like the staff here. They have shown patience and offer genuine smiles and greetings (unlike many other pubs nearby). Unfortunately, the food is often just average. We... More

Stopped in after riding loops of Norton summit. Service was friendly but the food was not quite what we were after.

Have been here about three times now as was reccomended by friends who raved about the salad bar and value of meals. As a nut allergy sufferer the salad bar is un-suitable for me as many of the salads contain nuts and were next to the ones I could have eaten, apart from the fact that they had had the... More

After waiting 35 minutes for the daily special beef and mushroom pie with mashed potato we enquired about our meal. The meal then arrived within 5 minutes. The pie had obviously been blasted with heat to cook the top the potato was cold. We returned the potato to be reheated and are still waiting for this. We asked to see... More

Have now eaten here several times and will really struggle to go back. Latest dish was the "Wokstar stir fry", and boy was it bad. Beef strips seemed broiled, not fried, with globs of fat on them. So-called "crispy" vegetables were limp, noodles obviously dry ones out of a packet. Almost $20 for the privilege.

Really happy with my experience here, all 4 meals on my table were delicious and well presented. 3/4 were off the specials board and were very high quality Prices were average pub prices which for the quality I thought were good value. Not much atmosphere but nothing unpleasant. Staff were friendly and competent

We were pleased with the food and happy with the service. The place was obviously renovated in the late 90's or early 2000,s and it still works. The 'sports Bar' is best avoided and they keep those customers away from the restaurant. Get in and out with fast service and a decent meal.

We had pre-booked a table for family from overseas and on arrival got shown our table. That was the last we saw of the waitress until our food arrived. (Except at the bar when we went up to get drinks). We heard the meals were very generous so some couples decided to split a meal. We ordered the meal, plus... More

The Tower Hotel is located in suburban Adelaide, not far away from the famous Grange vineyard. The Grange Bistro is their dining room. It offers reasonable food at reasonable prices- possibly on the high side compared to some other hotels in the area, but not unduly so. The food is standard pub fare- filling and hearty. This is a good... More
