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.

Its always difficult to try similar dishes a few days apart at different restaurants because there will always be a comparison and with fresh memories someone will come 2nd.

I ordered the porterhouse steak and it was divine! Cooked to perfection. The staff were very attentive, nothing too much trouble. This would be a great place for that something special as it is a little pricey but well worth it! great job guys.

Please dismiss my first review on this place as things have changed here. Poor service and even worse food. On arrival we were greeted by a guy who didn't seem pleased to see us, hurried to our table. I ordered the pork belly for entree and the $50 steak for main. The pork belly is delicious even though it has... More

Amy the waitress was very pleasant and helped us to decide what to eat and drink. Another waiter gave us water to drink and if the glass looked empty they would fill it up immediately. All of us were impress d with the meal and the lovely personality of young Amy.

The food was amazing and on top of this the 2 girls (Amy & Hannah) who looked after our party of 36 were an absolute pleasure, they were so polite and friendly - a perfect example of outstanding customer service. Well done to The Woodhouse keep up the great... More
