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

Lovely meal, polite service and not over imposing. Meat cooked perfectly, potion sizes excellent. This is a place you can go and enjoy without loud annoying background music. Prices are appropriate.

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

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
