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.

There is no other place to have a steak.

With wonderful service and great tasting steaks, this place is highly recommended for those who adore their steaks. With great range of sauces to choose from, it's an absolute delight!

An absolute favourite in Melbourne and now with so many more restaurants in other places. Consistently the best ribs and steaks I say. Yes, you can get as good in the odd place but Squires is somewhere you can always rely on and nobody does a better range of sauces.

Restaurant is located at the Docklands in melbourne. As a steakhouse it was great wine list was solid as far as an offering. Over all good value. Well worth the walk around the Docklands to experience architecture. This restaurant was recommended by one of our tour/ driver guide.

Fantastic warm environment with excellent staff and service. You cant go past the Eye Fillet with the Pepper Sauce and the wine list is very very reasonably priced! I love the complementary fantails at the register upon departure!@

I'm quite a fan of the Squires Loft restaurants. I have earlier reviewed the one in Docklands and I'm happy to report that the Squires Loft in Toorak Road, South Yarra is just as good. Great steaks, superb sauces, wonderful service and a fantastic wine list. What more could you ask?

Staying in Chapel Street

Neighborhood Profile
Chapel Street
Seek and ye shall find! Prahran is a treasure hunter’s paradise of vintage stores, upscale boutiques and emporiums. Chapel Street is a one-stop shop with specialty stores selling just about everything. The famous Chapel Street Bazaar has so many curious and vintage knick-knacks that you will feel as if you're in a huge and busy museum. By contrast, at the northern end of Chapel Street, South Yarra and Windsor cater to high-end designer labels and exclusive boutiques. The community flocks to Prahran’s organic markets as a Saturday ritual, while art and film students leaf through vinyl LPs on Greville Street. The gay community also has a strong presence here. Prahran’s heritage buildings like the Reads Emporium and Prahan arcade offer a grand sense of scale and history. No matter your interest, come feel the pulse of one of Melbourne’s most loved precincts.
