Great food, good environment, good prices

Overall the experience was very good. Steak was tender and cooked to our liking. If I was a local I would be returning frequently

Overpriced for what is basically steak and chips or baked potato with nothing else unless you pay for it. Steak was okay but nothing to rave about. Service poor, staff don't seem interested and couldn't explain different cuts of meat. Too quick to clear plates and glasses away. This was not our first visit, thought we would give it another...

Normally, I find it hard to get excited about steak as usually don't enjoy it. There are two places I will deliberately go for the steak and this is definitely one. The steak comes in a variety of cuts, weights and prices and sides are baked potato (white or sweet) and extra for others. All the food is of excellent... More

The steakhouse has simply great food. Perfect steaks, magnificent salmon, delicious sides; even the garden salad was amazing. Lovely building. Interesting staff. Been before, will be back again!

Went to steak house for tea Saturday night and my husband had the T-bone steak chief to perfection and I had the ribs which must melted in my mouth, the food was delicious and the service was excellent always coming and asking if the food was okay or if we wanted anything else. Great for special occasions. Always go back.

This restaurant is tucked away down Grenville Street south in a lovely building. We had eye fillet, my husband ordered rare and myself medium rare. The staff tell you exactly how the meat will look inside, temperature, colour etc and the steak came out exactly how we asked. Not many restaurants are confident in their product to cook a steak...

We loved the food - it is tricky to get a good rare steak in country Australia. The Ballarat Steakhouse can really cook a lovely steak. The chips were excellent and the black pepper sauce was good. The wine list was extensive, however they were out of 2 of the wines I wanted and then accidentally bought out a Cabernet... More

I have dined here many times but after my recent experience I don't think I'll be coming back. The staff were rude (one in particular) and the meals have become very overpriced. Very disappointed.

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.
