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.

Quality all round!

Not only are the steaks of great taste and quality, so is everything else on the menu. The prices are reasonable and the service is of a high standard! They even sell their secret sauce/marinade if you so desire!

My boyfriend and I first ate at Squires Loft 6 years ago when we visited Melbourne during a RTW trip from the UK. Six years later, we are back in Melbourne and the food at this place is still as amazing as it was in 2009. We've tried the mushrooms & feta, prawn skewers, lamb chops, chicken skewers, rump and...

A great evening with friends. Decor is a bit....doesn't work - needs re-thinking, but the steak was excellent (one of the best I've had). In fact, we all (table of 4) ordered steak and it was uniformly good, and exactly as ordered. Service was excellent too - friendly, but not familiar, and very accommodating of my wife's particular diet needs... More

$67 for a steak and a couple of scotches. Was busy, and very close seating. Steak was good and sauce was very good. I did enjoy the meal, perhaps it was just a busy night.

My girlfriend and I went to squires loft for dinner after being recommended by a friend. The grilled mushroom and feta entree was phenomenal and the steaks were as good as we had heard. I had the bbq sauce while Amy had the blue cheese sauce and both were A-Grade choices.. Great service, great food, great wine and I would... More

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
