“Good for the Country”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012 via mobile

The Steakpit Restaurant located at Elgins Hotel in Wodonga specializes in serving up some of the regions best steak. The venue offers a relaxing, premium setting offering a royalty like first class atmosphere boasting a pre dinner drinks lounge/bar, group dinning room (Gold Room) and a restaurant complete with a lowered grill pit where all the magic happens.
Make no mistake about it, the Steak Pit is first class for the country area of Wodonga however would fall behind in a more competitive city location on a number of fronts.
Firstly the service all round is terrible. If you can manage a smile from the Chef you are in rare company.
Next, the prices are outrageous. They charge Meat and Wine Co. Prices for product well below a comparable standard. Sauce will set you back extra, as will sides. This is always a good sign of amateurs trying to convince patrons of superiority through heavily inflated prices rather than serving up quality meals.
Finally if you don't indulge in a gut full of booze you may leave feeling a little empty and unsatisfied, meals are quite small.
Of note is that this place does not feature in The Age Good Food Guide which is quite comprehensive even for the regional areas.
Overall this place is among the best on offer in Albury Wodonga however don't expect to leave less than $200 lighter.

“Ill be back!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2012

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Steak Pit to anyone that enjoys good food & wine. We enjoyed a waygu rump, cooked to perfection with red wine jus. The 300g steak left no room for entree or dessert. Service & atmosphere were outstanding.

“A pricey dining experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2011

Dining at the Steak Pit is an experience that comes at a premium price.

We dined here for a family special occasion. The restaurant interior is very nice. The service was ok, but we were left waiting for long periods on a number of occasions. The quality of the steak was good, as were the vegetables, however for the price I did not think it was
appropriate to make us share
vegetables between us.

The Steak Pit is a very nice restaurant and the staff were friendly but for the price (around $40 for a steak plus $4 - $5 for sauce) I expect top quality service and individual serves of vegetables. Neither were present at this visit.
