A hearty steak on a cold Winters night

Nothing better than a well cooked bit of protein and a fine local wine on a cold night in Ballarat! Lovely old building with good atmosphere. The place was busy but service was efficient and friendly. Best steak in town!

Ordinary food, staff varied, some were lovely, some made us feel like we were intruding on their time. Came to pay the bill and noticed the prices were more than what was listed on the menu, raised this with the staff and were told their new menus were due however hadn't arrived...yet the register had been updated...we felt this was...

Seated out in the back room you feel abit forgotten by the wait staff. Food was good especially the riblets . Steak was spot on. Would visit again in the hope the wait staff lifted their game.

The Steakhouse has become part of our life - at least once a week we have a meal as a couple or family there. The steak is he best you will find. Their secret sauce is phenomenal. And the service is relaxed, friendly and knowledgeable. Keep it up.

The steak was OK-- not great but not the worst I have had either. It was pretty good quality meat and it was properly cooked so there is that. But I was suspicious that the sauces had perhaps not been made onsite-- though I don't know-- the one I had just tasted like what you would expect from a chain... More

Taste is different and nice but extremely over priced for 4 ribs per stack, marinate is on everything so no changing. There is no seasoning on chips or toppings on baked potato, potato is served with just sour cream unless you pay extra. Won't be eating here again, still left hungry afterwards.

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
