Description: Step into our restaurant and watch your senses ignite. Smell the delicious smokiness of Bendigo's only Redgum char-grill and dedicated steak house, as we use our unique "cooking with wood" techniques. In the finest tradition of steakhouses across the globe we use locally sourced meat and the very best in fresh, regional produce. Enjoy in-house and regionally prepared Charcuterie, beef carpaccio, organic lamb, or local chorizo styled sausage. Try our free-range pasture-fed porterhouse or smoked Wagyu. Meat is always the star of the show.

We're really looking forward to our evening... we had heard great things. But we're disappointed by the wait , the quality of the food and the lack of service. Waited ages for our drinks and couldn't get the attention of wait staff. Will give them another try before writing them off. Hopefully it will ride to the occasion next time!

I dined here on a Saturday night. The restaurant was packed, booking are a must most nights. Ordered steak, cooked perfectly and dessert tasting plate was heaven. Prices are fair, you definitely get what you pay for. Outstanding food and excellent service. Will be back very soon

Everything keeps going from better to best with Woodhouse. Modern seafood dishes, the best wood fired pizzas and the best steak in Australia both in quality and cooking (yes I we used to love RP, but not now!). I can say in over 12 months we've never had a bad meal, ever. If you want to experience the best lunch... More

I should have known this was not going to be a memorable dining experience for all the good reasons when we arrived. Walked through the gorgeous main area and deposited in what felt like a annex extension on the side of the restaurant (kind of like sitting at the kids table at christmas dinner!). I was lucky enough to be... More

Ordered medium cooked eye fillet. Half of it was rare and I couldn't eat it. When you are paying top dollar for food you expect it to be cooked properly. Also we ordered entree which we never received.

For terrific food, excellent service and a trendy feel this is a Bendigo must. Everything just seems like a decent meal, made with thought and love. The desserts are sensational - if you go here, have a dessert - they are to die for. I had one with caramel and popcorn and other yummy stuff, don't know the name but... More

We loved this restaurant! The Woodhouse has a beautiful, cosy ambience with warming open fires and comfortable seating. The menu is quite extensive focussing mainly on steaks. 3 out of 4 of us chose the wagyu beef burger! Without fail this was the best burger I have ever tasted in my life, the large wagyu beef patty was succulent with... More
