Our group of 12 people dined at "The Cow" today. Great food - T-Bone Steak with fries/potato & vegetables for $10.50. Other meals similar pricing. Service was excellent, food was served hot. The atmosphere was congenial - NO LOUD MUSIC!! We took our time over lunch, had a few drinks and could have a conversation. Some of us also played... More

This was the first of 3 pubs for one night of a tour I was on. Here was where we were to have our entrée. The layout and history of the pub was interesting to hear. It was inspiring to also learn on how they dealt during and after the floods that hit the town. Our entrée consisted of home-made... More

Dined here whilst in Toowoomba for work. I ordered a steak and have to say it was one of the best I have had. Cooked perfectly and come with fresh veggies. I was there on a Thursday night and it was quite busy although it didnt take long to receive my meal. Hosts were very friendly and took the time... More

I had heard great things about the Spotted Cow so was looking forward to trying it out with some friends. Having looked at the lunch menu online before deciding to visit, we were disappointed to be provided with the dinner menu at 1pm on a Sunday, and informed that they would only offer items off the dinner menu that day,...

We've been to the Spotted Cow a number of times over the years, but this was the first time in the new dining room. The food is still good - a little less like pub food and a little more up-market. We had Garlic Prawns and Cajun Prawns - both great. The new dining room, although good doesn't quite have... More

This place has a great selection of craft beers on tap and a decent wine list. The service was good and effecient. We ordered from the specials. My husband ordered the lamb shank and I had the slow cooked beef cheek. Both meals were nice, and enjoyable. The portions were a little small though. Given the review on here I... More

Joined by 10 ladies for lunch, I thought I'd put 'Expect the best and Eat the Rest' to the test. The ambience upon arrival was very welcoming, 'my' service and food were excellent. However the acoustics in the large room were noisy once the all tables were filled. My last call on entering the quiet powder room - playing relaxation... More

After much anticipation we visited the spotted cow for dinner and drinks. The restaurant was a large noisy hall, the salmon was dry and over priced. The owner was nosy and rude. Very disappointed, wouldn't recommend :'(
