Fabulous ribs!

Amazing ribs!!! Food was great and service good. Overall lighting could have been a little better but would recommend. Prices at the higher end although with an Entertainment card great value.

Was given a voucher, rang and booked, on arriving the service was fabulous, menu had a lot to offer. Didn't have to wait to long for anything. The steak was exactly what l asked for and the rest of the food was just as good. Friendly staff and clean.

This restaurant is very popular with young adults. I found the service appalling, and the atmosphere very noisy (high ceilings and floor boards).

My wife and I were looking for a steak meal in particular as we were both a bit sick of pasta. We had checked the prices prior to dining and it was a tad pricey but were still keen to go. We both left totally full and absolutely satisfied with everything about the Steakhouse. The Rib Eye on the bone... More

Our family have been here on numerous occasions and usually have a very pleasant dining experience. We know it is quite an unusual building internally as restaurants go but book here in anticipation of enjoying a delicious steak ! There have been a few occasions when the meal has been disappointing but somehow we still return .

I'm really surprised to read poor reviews. We've dined here several times and never been disappointed. The restaurant manager and her team are very professional and attentive without any annoying hovering. Food is always amazing. Favourites include the ribs and the amazing chocolate fondant cake. We'll definitely be back!

This is the third time I have been here, and has continued to live up to its poor reputation. The service is extremely poor with unfriendly staff. The food is overpriced for what you get. Paying $40 for ribeye & a baked potato or chips. $6-9 extra for sides. $4.75 for a sauce. Each time I have been the eye... More

We had a great meal here, but the staff are very un-friendly and scary. I couldn't believe that the whole night, that not one of the staff smiled. Even when they asked you for your choices, they just wrote them down and had no expression on their faces at all...Weird. Service is not slow, but you don't feel very welcome.... More

Third visit to Ballarat Steakhouse in 12 months and very underwhelming. Previous two visits the service was extremely slow, but this one breaks all records. Arrived on time and after a few minutes were shown to our table, as we were being seated were asked to make our drinks order. Asked for five minutes to see the wine menu and... More
