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

This restaurant was a recommendation from a local. We were very glad we tried it. Steak was very reasonably priced and cooked to perfection. We ordered a side of chips and they were to die for, crispy on outside and soft on inside. The standard salad sides don't sound exciting but were very tasty and great addition to the steaks.... More

I have visited the Barbeque Inn many times and always receive a great, friendly service. Family run restaurant. The steaks are to die for with nice size portions always cooked to your liking. My partners son is an apprentice butcher and he loves coming here too. If you get the chance to go you won't be disappointed.

Do you want the best steak in Adelaide? Do you want fast efficient service? Do you want an quality meal in a hurry? Go to Glenelg Barbeque. The meat is always superb, cooked to perfection. The surroundings are a bit spartan but pleasant. Ownership to my knowledge has not changed in 4 decades and the same high standards prevail. The... More
