I have had the pleasure of eating at the Jailhouse Grill 4 times now whilst visiting Launceston. They cook the best peppersteak that I have ever eaten. The service, ambience and food at this establishment is fabulous.

My friend and I weren't sure whether to splash out on this. reviews said it was good, but a pricey steak.then we noticed the free salad bar and went for it. lovely steak, great choices on salad bar and friendly staff. extra steak sauces slightly expensive and personally wouldn't bother. good choice on a Sunday night.

Great restaurant the menu was good .We went at a busy time of the year but we were still taken care of pretty promptly.We sat in one of the booths so we had plenty of room.We loved all the bottles of wine. We certainly will eat here again and we have told others about Jail House Grill.

The service was good, staff friendly. Steak was good, but a bit over priced. Choice of vegetables on the salad bar was limited, some finished and not replaced.

We came across this wonderful pub as not much open on Sunday night in Launceston. The steaks were HUGE but without doubt, the absolute best steaks we have ever tried. I had ribs which were plentiful & partner had lamb steak. Salad bar had everything we needed. Would fly down especially to eat here!

Lucky to get a table here on a busy Tuesday night, service was good considering they were fully booked. Food was really tasty which seems to be difficult for most restaurants to do. Overall everyone in my group was very happy with their meals. Would definitely go back

We went on a recommendation from a local and were so glad we did. It was a Monday night and the place was packed. We did not have to wait too long for a table. The staff were friendly and efficient. The oysters were the best we had in Tasmania. The steaks were just great - cooked perfectly and the... More

Amazing food in a rustic jail theme, Salmon and lamb steak dishes were delicious with a hot and cold salad bar, definitely worth a visit.
