If you feel like meat

Had a lovely dinner here, if you are in the mood for a great steak or meat fix, dinner tasted great after being cooked on coals. Had their traditional salad and really enjoyed that too.

I have been eating here regularly for 40 years with family and mates. You will see plenty of locals and SA sporting legends eating here. Russell Ebert was in tonight at the table next to us. The historic Bay restaurant recently went thru a makeover with repaint, art, new menu and wine list but it still retains all their signature... More

This restaurant ahs been in the same family for 40 years and has just re opened after two weeks of renovations. We were waiting to get back in and were not disappointed to find that the steaks were just as tender as always. Melt in your mouth and huge if you want them that way. Not a place for vegetarians.The... More

With a family of 5 we wouldnt normally pay this much for meals but it was for hubbys 40th so thought we would have a treat. Not impressed at all. Over priced and underwhelming. My chicken shaslick for $16 was small & unimpressive with 2 greasy chevapchichi's on the side. My daughters "hamburger" was just a greasy meat pattie and... More

We used to dine here often and it was always a good meal. We've been here twice recently and both times have been disappointed. The steak is chewy and the salad was not good. The cabbage was not tasty and the potato salad dressing had no flavour. We doubt we'll be giving the restaurant another try as it's not cheap... More

I don't get here often enough. Fantastic selection of meat and its cooked to your perfection. Matin runs a great BBQ, well priced, good wine list, very friendly and helpful staff.You must experience the BBQ Inn located at the top end of Jetty road - you will love it - Yamas

I LOVE this restaurant ! I bring my son here every year on his birthday for a family dinner as he is a dedicated carnivore. The meals are always top notch, they buy only the best produce. The staff are efficient and the salad is unique and gorgeous ( I always eat mine and my sons ). Highly recommended

Venue is over rated, menu is overpriced. This is just a cafe, and very noisy. Can be BYO, but pay $12.50 corkage. They're dreaming!

The BBQ inn is an Adelaide icon having served fabulous charcoal grilled meat with sides of tasty coleslaw and potatoe in cream, try offal on offer or just a great steak. The small continental sausages are delightful. Takes a bit of getting used to to witness such a large amount of meat being served
