“For a Steak Look no further”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2015

I had heard about this place on the radio after they reviewed another place I was thinking about going to but this place they said wins hands down.Well far be it for me to pass up a good steak place in my own home town off we went for a Sunday lunch.The inside is very nice with not a lot of seating SO BOOK it was full by the time 1 o'clock came around.The beer a and wine list has a very good mix something to please everyone.We had the soup a starter and then came out the steak it is served with hand cut chips that are crisp on the outside but fluffy on the inside .The sauce are served on the side so you can put as much as you like and the salad has one of the best tasting dressing I have ever had.There are different types of steaks that you can order varying in price and weight.I had the rib eye medium rare and it was melt in your mouth just the right amount of char on the fat to add to the flavour.This was followed by desert which topped of the meal.This is one place in Melbourne that must not be missed if you love a good steak I know I will be back and soon

“Excellent food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2015 via mobile

We went for an anniversary. Food is excellent, not just the steaks (which are excellent!) but the onion soup is divine. The only challenge is that it's easy to get too full! We weren't able to fit in deserts, but I had been previously, and can highly recommend them! Children were well catered for. It's pricey for the area, but you're guaranteed a great meal. We will be back.

“The place for steak! ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2015

We booked for Sunday lunch and wasn't disappointed.

We shared starters of spiced beef with hummus (this wasn't as good as it used to be but still tasty ) and cauliflower and cheese croquettes.

4 people had steak. All cooked as required. Perfect and tasty. 1 person had steak and mushroom pie (served with salad! Which was a bit weird! !)

We shared chocolate fondant, creme brulee and eton mess for dessert.

This place is a great place for a drink or lunch or dinner in Footscray.

We will come again.

“Steaks! Steaks! Steaks!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2015

The Station is renown for it's steaks. It has a number of cuts available that are all grain fed. There are various weights offered (250g, 300g, 500g 800g) all cooked to your liking. I had the 500g ribeye cooked medium rare and it was simply delicious. Prices aren't cheap ranging from around $30-$50 for a main meal but the quality is great.

Booking is a must, this place is full all week. If you miss out on a booking in the bistro you can sit in the main bar and get the same meals at the same price and tables are on a first come first served basis.

“Attention to detail at all levels”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2015

Booking simple.
Greeting welcoming.
Staff know the meals on the menu & the cellar.
The price is more than reasonable.
The kitchen staff obviously have pride in their work and produce consistent high quality meals.
Atmosphere is relaxed and reasonably quiet.
