“chef is outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

I eat here infrequently but when i want to go some where special

Its old world and you must dress up formally before you are allowed in. This does make it special.

There is only one draw back. you have a member or invited by one.!

“Not many like it anymore.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

I was invited to attend a function at the lub and had a very nice time. The building is olde-world, and gives you an idea what it might have been like to socialise in days of glamorous evening gowns, tuxedos and beautiful big ceiling dining rooms.

Thank you for a great night.

“A rare experience - excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Invitation only, but guests of members are warmly welcomed by other members and staff. A historic building that provides a great ambiance for dining. Without doubt the best steak in Hobart. Other meals I have experienced include excellent seafood and other seasonal dishes. Highly recommended if you get the opportunity, the club members make you most welcome.

“Hobart's elite (oxymoron)”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

Bland old meat with too much gravy served to bland old geysers with their snouts well and truly in the gravy. Unpleasant all round.

“Dinosaur Club”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012 via mobile

This place is a museum. It might have been popular in the 1950's but this place hasn't moved on from that era.
Sad that the board hasn't kept pace with change.
