The best BBQ you will get in Adelaide

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 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

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
