The Best Steak in The West

The Station Hotel in Footscray is just fantastic. It is very consistent with the quality of its meals. They are always fantastic. We have tried lots of hotels and restaurants but always come back to the Station!

A lot more fish on the menu but that's not what you go here for. Very busy and very noisy. Not the place for an intimate tete a tete. Steak was great and service good but very rushed. One waiter dropped our entree on table, said the name and walked away as quickly as he arrived. Long wait for pre... More

The Station Hotel is a bit of a legend for steak in Melbourne. The ownership has recently changed but things have stayed the same. The steak menu is amazing and so much to choose from. Having said that there are lots of other options and the entree and deserts are fantastic. Lee the front of house manager seems to know... More

This place is one of those Gems that should not be judged by it's exterior !! Although living in Melbourne for years I have never heard of this place until recently. Memorable work function here recently now puts the Station Hotel high on the list of places to go. Our ravenous group of steak lovers literally licked their plates clean... More

Have dined here on several occasions, mostly for business functions in a group and have always had good food. The steaks are excellent and always cooked as ordered. I like a rare steak and have never had an overcooked steak here.Service is usually friendly and brisk. Water and bread is on the table almost before you are seated! The place... More

I'm lucky enough to live close to this great pub. It has lovely food and a fantastic selection of steaks to choose from. The accompanyments are first class. Bernaise sauce a highlight. Great wine list and decent selection of craft beers. Not cheap by any means (the price indicated here is incorrect. You won't get a steak for under $30... More

On my recent working trip to Melbourne, I specially sought out this place after reading reviews off tripadvisor. I had a steak, which was made to perfection, tender and juicy. I liked their chips too. I especially enjoyed their ambience and service, it's a good place for an evening out with friends. Now I have a new place to go... More

I had some friends down from Sydney for New Years Eve and wanted to show them how good Melbournes dining is. So we started our Nye at the Station Hotel. Had an earlier booking as we wanted plenty of time to see the fireworks later. Staff were very friendly and knowledgable. We all ordered the steaks. They were perfectly cooked... More

Booked dinner here based solely on Trip Advisor reviews for our recent trip to Melbourne. When the cab dropped us off we weren't sure if we were at the right place! Just a tiny door and quite an ugly building from the outside. We found our way in to the bar, still unsure if this was the right place, however... More

On the basis of reviews we tried the Station for the first time and we're not disappointed. Five of us, very tasty entrees, generous servings, followed by three different cuts of steak, cooked three different ways but each delivered at the same time and all perfectly cooked to order, properly rested and accompanied by generous sides of thick cut chips...
