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.

This restaurant is very pleasant for both business and personal dinner. It serves very good steak with good variety and choice of wine. A very good choice of restaurant if you are out at St Kilda Road and do not want to go to the cluster of restaurant in Southbank.

Yes, a Wednesday night in wintery Melbourne, so the restaurant was not packed but enough patrons to make the place cosy and inviting for us - a party of 5 to celebrate birthdays. From arrival to departure we were well looked after by friendly, helpful staff who ensured we got everything we wanted promptly and with a smile. The restaurant's... More

Had a business lunch at the new Squires loft in Tooronga. We both agreed they were the best steaks we had had in a long time. Service was efficient and friendly without being intrusive. Not cheap but not exorbitant either. You get what you pay for. Would highly recommend.

Squires Loft served a great steak that was cooked to perfection. The wait staff were very kind and helpful. The atmosphere was actually quite swanky for a steakhouse. I'd go back again for sure.

Met with a client for a business lunch and Squires Loft was a top spot to have a great steak match with some good red wine to discuss some up coming business opportunities. Wait staff were attentive and will be going back for sure
