Went there on a Saturday night. Place was busy. Waited 10/15 mins to order. Our garlic bread was out in 10 mins but we waited just over an hour for our mains. Thank goodness the steak is awesome as it was worth the extended wait. Washed down with a few beers we had a good night.

This was a nridlsbane icon gone to the dogs.. Over an hour to get a $42 steak and then it was not cooked as requested. Seriously if a steak house cannot work out how to cook steak it should not be in business. To top it off they charge for wagu beef and supply normal steak obviously used to ripping... More

No as busy as it used to be in its " hey-day " and quite during the week for no apparent reason. Good honest " pub " fare , a place for the family or a great night out. If I'm in the area , I will return and would recommend this unpretentious place for family and friends.

My husband and I have been going to the Brekkie Creek for well over 40 years, in fact steaks were $1 when the Spanish Gardens first opened, but now we go there as a family for birthdays and other milestones. Everything has changed and yet nothing has changed if that makes any sense. Spanish Gardens is now a restaurant with... More

The steaks are melt in your mouth and always cooks perfect. Also the new rum bar is a great place to check out and sample some of the different varieties they have.

This old pub on the banks of Breakfast creek a tributary of the Brisbane river is a Brisbane icon. Impressive old original 1880 s part of pub has been virtually left as is and a room has been made into a museum. The old photos on the wall depict a past that is interesting and epic. The pub has been... More

I was lucky enough to be invited here for a business meeting and I was really surprised with the quality of the steak I ordered. Although I wasn't paying I still think the price of the Filet Mingnon was real value for money. The hotel also has a great beer and wine list. I will definitely be back.

The meals are very 1970 and offer little value. There is variety in terms of the meat offerings but it is generally an uninspiring and poorly presented offering. It seems to trade on its location and heritage .
