Description: The first Squires Loft was opened in 1992 in Church Street Brighton. Our reputation for consistently delivering great steaks and unique flavours led us to a larger store in South Yarra where we are still located today. The success of the Squires Loft formula and demand for Squires Loft branded products led to substantial interest from staff, customers and business owners who wanted to duplicate the business. This has resulted in 15 steakhouse restaurants operating around Australia. These steakhouses are located around Melbourne, Country Victoria, Brisbane, Gold Coast and Western Australia. Further steakhouses are in the pipeline and there is significant interest, which we believe should lead to more Squires Loft steakhouses opening. As a result of this demand and significant recognition of the Squires Loft name, Squires Loft FRANCHISE Pty Ltd has been formed to enable the expansion of the brand.

Very nice place with excellent steak. Coupled that with good wine and the night went by pretty fast.

Booked in here for a business meeting lunch today, midweek. Not very noisy or busy so easy to talk without needing to be loud. Service was good without being overbearing. I had the smaller 200g eye fillet medium, which was cooked perfectly as usual here, and added the blue cheese sauce on the side. For me, this is a must,... More

Fantastic steak house in a quiet residential setting. The menu is mainly steak with some chicken and vegetarian options too. Each main course comes with a variety of side dishes, all reasonably priced. I would say that the dessert menu was a little disappointing - however, a very busy restaurant - booking is advisable.

My son & I recently had dinner in this busy restaurant. We ordered the fillet 200g for me. & 300g for him. We chose mushroom sauce from the sauce menu. It comes with baked potato or fries. No fancy French names for ingredients or cooking methods on this menu. You can choose additions of roast veges, onion rings or a... More

Only come here for the ribs, which never fail to satisfy. They can get very busy, so make sure you book.

We don't go to Squires Loft very often but when we go there we are never disappointed. We had a Filet Steak and a Porterhouse Steak with Chips, garden salad and Black Pepper Sauce and everything was excellent.

Steaks are good, need to book your tables in advance, as the restaurant we went was a bit small. Recommend the Scotch Fillet

My husband and I popped over to Squires Loft for dinner on Monday night around 8pm and they thankfully had a spare table available for us (it was quite busy). We ordered the Boerewors entree to share and it was very tasty (my husband moved from South Africa as a child, so said the flavour was about 80% right to... More

In Melbourne the Tooronga Squires is a winner over the other branches for the simple reason that you can fairly easily find parking! Im a big meat fan, and when looking at the other steakhouses around (Meat and Wine, Rare etc) I find squires offers consistent quality, (in fairness so do the others) without the whole hype of trying to...
