This venue is used frequently for many educational and business conferences; and with good reason as it is always reliably great. I have been to this restaurant many times and never disappointed. I had the pork belly for entree which was superb as usual, just delectable; but some of the others enjoyed the scallops which I also highly recommend. For... More

Empire Grill is certainly not budget dining, but the food is unforgettable. We had 3 courses which were a little rushed as our table was re-booked for a later sitting, but we still were able to savour and enjoy some excellent food. The service was friendly, although the tables were a little too close together for staff to move around... More

An absolutely great place to enjoy an upmarket meal in a relaxed and quiet atmosphere. The menu is both extensive and world class and the choice of wines impressive to the most critical palates - definately worth a visit if you're in Geelong.

Quality of the food was wonderful, and the service was even better. The atmosphere was very pleasant, and it was easy to see that the waitstaff were dedicated to customer satisfaction. The only thing i could fault was the stale bread at the beginning of the meal, but even that was not enough to tarnish our great experience. Thank you... More
