First Class Service, But......

First time there to celebrate a birthday - obviously very popular and couldn't fault the service, but, I was somewhat disappointed by the T bone steak meal I was served - meat very thin and not tender. My wife's meal OK so overall I felt the meals were not good value for money, and as we don't dine... read more

Recently took a friend to lunch at Smith & McKenzie Chophouse. Very friendly helpful staff, we both enjoyed our food in a relaxed atmosphere. Look forward to visiting again

Our first visit. Best ribs I have ever had. Didn't even nee to pick them up in my fingers, the meat just fell off the bone and was so tender and flavoursome, and plenty of them

Our first time at this establishment with an extended family gathering with a wheelchair included was no problem. Service was excellent with polite, friendly and helpful personnel. All parts of the meal came out together with appropriate temperatures. Portions definitely were not stingy and were very well presented. Wooden tables and a gas wood fire completed the atmosphere.

Melt in your mouth steaks, good wine menu, good variety of food on the menu. Location lets it down but don't be put off by the suburbia carpark setting.

The flexitarians in the family love going here, the staff are well trained, well presented and engaging, the ambience is nice, and if you'e going to eat meat, this is the place to do it. Great range of cuts, high quality meat, and cooked to direction perfectly. Good wine and beer list and some excellent desserts.

Great atmosphere, great menu, great staff, great food. Only downside I thought that the drinks menu was expensive for very average selection. If you go during the day then parking can be an issue so allow plenty of time.

We dined here because someone recommended it...we wouldn't go back. The prices are OTT and the portions just don't measure up. $16.70 for a GLASS of wine? Really?
