This place is quite unassuming from the street, but the service was 5 stars and the steak was up there with some of the best steak restaurants in Melbourne. Cooked to perfection and a taste sensation. Well worth a return visit.

Quite simply great staff, great food, great atmosphere. We had a business dinner here and was told it was the best restaurant in Geelong. We did not quite believe it given its location but most definitely they were right. Excellent vegetarian menu.

Friends visiting for the evening had to find somewhere special. Called three places who were all booked out. Empire Grill came into the mix, had a vacancy and the rest is history. On arrival there was a healthy buzz of conversation in the room. The service was unbelievable - not intrusive but ever present and friendly. There was little wait... More

Our family had come together for a special birthday, so our daughter, from UK, took us to dinner at the Empire Grill. The service was good and delivered in a friendly manner. Everyone enjoyed the meal and wine. We left very content and happy.

I have attended weddings here and gone for meals here, All I can say is WOW, food was awesome and the weddings receptions were PERFECT. I cannot give it a high enough rating for a fancy top class Centre for everything.

Great spot for a beautiful meal. Great staff who were very attentive, pleasant and courteous. Very well trained and we observed that not once did we hear other guests being queried as to who ordered what item. Food was cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. Would certainly recommend to friends looking for a good restaurant.

I went to lunch here with a Large party just prior to Christmas. The restaurant was full and very busy. Due to the size of our party we were limited to a set menu of two courses. Despite this, and the fact that we were packed in like sardines, it was not a bad effort on the restaurants behalf. I... More
