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.

What a meal will be back

Headed down with friends on a recent visit to Melbourne and back again to squires. The ribs melt in your mouth, how good we they, the steaks done to perfection and the wine list is really something, and not too expensive either. If you love your meat, this is the place to go

Long time staple steakhouse of mine when I'm craving a good steak! They consistently cook the steak exactly to your liking and service is always great. I normally order the 200g eye fillet, rare with creamy garlic sauce and chips. A favourite entree is the baked mushroom with feta.

Four of us very recently celebrated a family birthday over an enjoyable steak dinner meal at Squires Loft, corner of Toorak Road and Tooronga Roads. We had pre-booked, and appreciated the corner table chosen for us. Each of us decided to order the 200g fillet steak, and each of us enjoyed it immensely, although the 'Medium' was probably closer to... More

I took my beautiful wife out for a lovely dinner for another great Squires Loft experience. We have been to few and this South Yarra Squires doesn't disappoint. Steaks are very reasonable in price $42 for 400g ribeye and the sauce I had was green peppercorn which was great. The onion rings need to be declared a new food group!!... More
