Best stake

Me and my partner/family come here on special occasions we have been coming here for 14years. Every time I come here I'm never disappointed. Their stake is the best here and Iv never had better the meat is so big. Depending on what cut you order the rump/T-bone practically take up the whole plate... read more

Ate here with friends recently after looking for somewhere in the area to meet up and eat. This place had hood reviews on here. Place is clean and food is good. Area is a little wierd for a restaurant though. Not the very best food but pretty good. Service was excellent though. Unobtrusive but attentive. Recommend.

Had dinner here recently with my kids. Ordered 2 of the 600gm rumps to share. $37.50 each. The steak was really good and the kids loved it. The service was nice and friendly. The building is old and well loved. Well worth checking out. Next time we will try the seafood.

I have eaten here several times over the years. The menu never changes but neither does the quality. Best steak I have ever eaten, food is always consistently good

Great meal good time. Have been a few time over 25 years. Level of quality of food hasn't changed. Always enjoyable. Look forward to the bom Alaska. Use to have when I was a kid and was my favourite. Aren't many place who make it fresh anymore.

We had the oysters Kilpatrick and Mornay ( 1/2 doz of each ) and 1/2 dozen Garlic Escargot, they came out in a timely manner and were excellent. Our mains were a 600g rump steak and a 350g eye fillet,... More
