This is a longstanding Glenelg institution, tracing its history back to the Hindley Street establishment established in 1958, and with the same family ownership. The formula is simple: a charcoal grill and good quality steaks, served with a simple salad, and offered at reasonable prices. For example, presently, they're offering a 500 gram T-bone steak for AUD25. The decor is... More

Inexpensive, clean, friendly, mediocre. If you want something green order a side salad. OK for a dinner on the road

I've been dinning at the Glenelg BBQ INN for many years now. I have never had a bad meal. My meat is always cooked to perfection beer is cold and sides are plentiful. Make sure you book in before you go because great places always fill up quick. Thanks

I was not happy with any aspect of my night here. Firstly, the atmosphere doesnt set the world on fire, i felt like i was in a school cafeteria. Secondly the steak its self was way too chewy and not melt in your mouth, and for the cost it was no where near good enough. You would also expect a... More

Went for a meal on a Friday night and while it was packed, the staff were still very friendly and the service was excellent. Didn't feel rushed to order food (which is awesome because everything on the menu looks delicious). I had a Mixed Grill (it was a $20 "Special") with lamb shaslick, I loved it! So it was a... More

Had dinner here with some colleagues. It's a tiny place with simple tables, but it's all about the meat Mate! Wonderful steaks on display in a butchers case in front of a large charcoal grill. I had the Texas T-Bone, 800g of steak. It came with a wonderful cold salad (actually 3 salads) consisting of potatoes, a vinegar cabbage slaw,... More

This place is a Glenelg institution and has been for a million years. If you feel like a good quick meal this is the place to go. All steak and seafood is cooked on a charcoal grill (yes real charcoal) so it has a great flavour and the meat is always tender. Bbq Inn is very casual, nothing flash inside,... More

This longstanding establishment continues to deliver consistently good steaks at very reasonable prices, with cheerful and courteous service, Presently, they are offering several "value for money" specials, which give you another reason to visit! Well worth a visit.

The food is alright but served with no finesse - cold potato salad seems to come with whatever you order. We have never visited a less cosy restaurant than this - old office chairs from the 80's, cold sharp lightening from lamps with no dimmer function, no linen. And in the middle of our dinner they start cleaning and closing... More
