Steaks and ribs are the main items but there are also a few burgers - we were told the burgers here are better than fergburgers, because the patties are made from sirloin and are fresher and cooked to your liking. We tried it out and yes the patties are better than ferg, but mine was a little overcooked (I asked... More

In our group of 4, all steaks were cooked to perfection and tasted amazing. The only thing letting this restaurant down was the service. Service seemed a bit disorganized and our drinks were forgotten multiple times, to the point where we never received the last round and had to get the charges taken off the bill.

Going here as big ribs fan it was hard not to commit to the ribs but I just couldn't resist the French Lamb Cutlets. When out at dinner and ordering a rack of lamb, you usually receive 4 cutlets. Apparently Flame Bar and Grill didn't get this memo or they simply ignored it as I received 8 cutlets in my... More

Well what a treat this was. First came here on Tuesday night around 6pm to get a table for two and it was booked out until 9:30pm. So made a booking for Thursday the 14th of August. Glad we did, this place was fantastic. Got a full rack of ribs and they were great value, cannot even get a large... More

Arrived on time for our 8pm reservation but told our table wasn't ready, maybe another 10 minutes. No problem, we were instructed to sit elsewhere and wait but the waitress would not take our order for drinks and starters. Not sure why. Finally our table was ready and we ordered. We also ordered a bottle of wine and water for... More

A must go to restaurant in QT. Very busy, even during the week, so reservations help. Great food, good ambience, informal/relaxed place.

Not often you can give a place a full 5 star rating but this place is amazing. I ordered the big mixed grill platter and everything was perfect and tasted really good. My wife ordered the chicken breast and it was just as delish. The service was very good, and it's a reasonable price for the quality of food. We... More

I had rib fillet. Wife had chicken. Rib fillet was overly chewy for the price. Flavour was ok. Far from a good steak. I didn't like the mushroom sauce but wife did. Chicken was HUGE! Slightly overcooked. Flavour was good. Maître d was somewhat rude for a nice looking restaurant. No smile upon arrival and no reply to our hi... More
