Great Steak

Visited this Glenelg dining institution with friends. The first positive is that they were one of the few restaurants open on news year day. The greeting by the chap behind the counter was not good. No words used however the second positive was the friendly young man he handed us onto to show us to... read more

Food was ok, not great but ok. Felt like it had been recently updated but felt more like a 1970s diner than a restaurant.

This restaurant has celebrated over 40 years of trading, with a simple recipe: a devotion to charcoal grilling steaks. Recently, they have had something of a makeover- new decor and a new menu. Now, with your steak, you have a choice of their traditional salad or a green salad. For long time patrons, this is a big change! Thankfully, some... More

I first went to the Barbeque Inn in the late 1970's and the quality hasn't changed a lot. It is still one of the best value for money restaurants in Adelaide. The quality is outstanding, the service is honest and the size of the serve means that you will also have lunch for the next day. Seriously, for a trip... More

New Years Day and nothing is open in Adelaide. We are happy that we can get into this Restaurant which I have heard does fabulous steaks. The reputation was right. My blue steak was cooked perfectly and I had the classic salad. Great meal. But....... The chef/owner?? who greeted us at the door was shocking. Not a smile. Not a... More

Its been a couple of years since we visited the Glenelg BBQ and we were pleasantly surprised to find the interior had been updated and new tables and chairs installed. Staff was different but the quality of the meat and salads was the same. We asked for the 250g eye fillet, I am sure it was more like 350g and... More

It has pretty simple decor, but the food is amazing! There is a array of cuts and steak sizes to suit your liking. I had a melt in your mouth eye fillet, chips and salad. Definitely worth a visit if you love a good steak.

We had high expectations but things like getting up to get your salt and pepper, coffee that would be shamed by railway coffee spoils an otherwise great meal. Yes it was basic in its furniture, flooring etc but there is no excuse for poor service. Fortunately, the owner apologised and refunded our coffees. I would go back for the food.
