My wife and I are fortunate to live in very close proximity to this Iconic Hotel and we frequent the hotel often. There is no shortage of restaurants in the area but the Breakfast Creek consistently does a great steak and the cold beers out of wooden kegs just top off a fantastic lunch or dinner. The atmosphere is great... More

This place is full of history. The service in the Spanish Garden is superb. The food - only fair for the price. As "the" original steakhouse there is now too many competitors doing this as well. Food is okay but nothing special, so value for money is only fair. But still, great atmosphere and history here.

I haven't visited here for many years. I was not disappointed. Had a petite eye fillet which was cooked to perfection. The beer was tasty and the whole experience was great. A definite must to this famous icon for any visitor to Brisbane.

Brisbane has plenty of good places for a steak and this place is up there. It's the atmosphere I think that makes it special and also it's central location

This iconic and historic pub lives up to its reputation- great location, great steaks and salad, and a long cool beer. Having been here many times with clients from overseas, they are always charmed by the Aussie Pub.

We were a bus group of 48 for whom a set (4 option) lunch had been arranged. Prior to our arrival the hotel had been advised of the relative number of the various meals required. Within minutes of taking our seats at the tables the meals were delivered by efficient staff. There have been a lot of changes at this... More

Oh dear me! what a disaster. Now, this place is an example of an institution becoming comfortable with its name and the longevity of its address. We came to this joint 18mns ago for a celebration and returned last night (17/9/16). It was ok then but last night i was reminded of how bad the food actually and how expensive.... More

Not for vegetarians. Fantastic steaks that are world famous and cooked to perfection! It is counter service but worth it. A place yo remember.

An open kitchen and servery is situated on one side of the breezeway, where patrons are able to choose their own steak from the chilled cabinet, in classic Brekky Creek tradition.
