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.

Best place in Bendigo

Food was spectacular, service was wonderful and the overall ambiance of the place was beautiful. Every dish was to die for, will be coming back here every time I visit Bendigo.

After reading many a raving revue for this restaurant we were excited at the prospect of entertaining our friends from out-of-town here. Restaurant setting is lovely, rustic and cosy. Staff come across as friendly but quite pretentious, one in particular who delivered our drinks was simply rude. Entrees were quite delicious. Three of the steaks ordered were not at all... More

Incredible combinations of flavours with beautifully cooked local produce. The lunch special is very good value and prompt service for those on lunch breaks. Just need to have a gluten free pizza base available! Excellent desserts too.

The meal was superb scallops following a delicious pizza starter. A wonderful Pinot washed it down and I sat back feeling content. Table service was good.

we only spotted this restaurant in the tourist brochure in our motel, sounded good, but a bit far away - but we actually walked past it mid afternoon and were taken with everything on the menu. Phoned and got a booking, on a chilly Monday night. Everything was great, perfectly cooked steaks, great wines at reasonable prices. The clientele varied... More

If you are looking for a top end meal or special occassion then I don't think that you can go past the Woodhouse. I believe that they really know how to cook a good steak it was cooked to exactly my asking and just fell apart.

You can tell the people that work here are passionate about what they do. The front of house are always groomed and are happy to be there. In the kitchen is where the magic happens. Each dish is always presented beautifully and the taste of each element go hand in hand. For a restaurant that has only been open for... More

Our friends from Broken Hill selected Woodhouse by TripAdvisor. As locals it was our first visit. Everyone was very impressed.

We were seated in the smaller area which seemed more for couples, which was great. There's a larger area for big groups which could get quite loud. Service was very professional & appropriate. As the name implies foods are cooked mainly on a grill over wood. We tried the entree special of oyster, salmon & scallop. It was good except... More

We dined here as a group on a weekend visit to Bendigo. Wow, what an amazing meal we had. Our waitress was exceptional with a very thorough knowledge of the cuts if steak available. All the meals were cooked perfectly. A special mention needs to to be made if the pork belly entree and the shared desert plate. Not to... More
