Good food and service

3 of us here in TAS for a footy weekend ended up here for a late dinner and were pleasantly surprised. We all ordered steaks and they were all cooked to our liking, and we're good cuts. The wine list is very reasonably priced so we indulged here! Our waitress was great fun and happily serving us... read more

A little overprice for the small portions. We had 200g scotch fillet and the pork ribs. Paid $69.50 in total. The salad bar was good with a wide variety of veggies. The steak only came out with two potatoes. The ribs tasted better than the steak. The meat fell off the bone when you ate the ribs. Nice rib sauce.... More

We had high hopes for this place but we were unfortunately left disappointed. The food was nice but overall it just felt like Sizzler to be honest. I had the ribs which were cooked really well but the sauce was overpowering and the amount of ginger in the sauce was way too much. My husband had a steak which he... More

The trip to Jailhouse Grill was one of the highlights of our trip to Launceston. And the place certainly did not disappoint. We arrived early as we were a bit unsure about where to go, the staff were very accommodating and the place soon filled up. We both ordered steaks I ordered a small rump but hubby was a bit... More

The food was delicious. Our steaks were cooked just the way we liked them with the option of salad or veges from the salad bar. The staff were all friendly.

Great food, great service and great atmosphere. A little hint, don't eat too much before you go and indulge when you get there.

Service was pleasant however the food was well below average. The salad bar was very mediocre with the "hot" items were stone cold. Perhaps i ordered the wrong thing (chicken) but it wasn't great.

Nice little pub style place to eat with excellent wait staff and quick meals. Ordered from the set menu and was not disappointed with the taste or portion sizes. The pepper steak tasted great and the ice cream was delicious.
