We visited mid week, four adults with two little tackers in tow, service was fine but could do with a more upbeat approach i.e. Explaining the menu and highlighting best choices. Anyway, we ordered and everyone enjoyed the choices made. My steak was cooked to perfection. Absolutely no complaints about any of the food, obviously a good chef on board.... More

Attended quite a few meetings upstairs in a room & a bit disappointed by leaking aircon that wasn't fixed month to month. Room had great potential but a bit tired and dated. Wouldnt take much to give a little facelift! Coffee downstairs in the bar afterwards was great & service from staff always friendly!

Ribs were good, the Mt Kosciusko Pale Ale hit the spot. Staff friendly and meals were delivered in good time. ........................

I visited The Grove for Sunday lunch recently and I had reviewed it first and saw it had a good reputation but unfortunately my experience was not good. It took an hour and half to bring out a pizza and the lighting was poor coupled with the prices I was disappointed.

This is a busy little spot in Ashgrove Brisbane which serves sound food and drinks which is ideal for an economical meal with the family which would suit birthdays and special event days when you like to take children with you. The Owner/Manager is run off his feet to ensure that everything goes smoothly but it could do with an... More

We liked parking at the door. The food was good, but the service, whilst attentive, was a bit slow. I didn't like the tatty menus - time to replace them.

Had a bad experience before but decided to give them another chance wrong idea, we ordered entrees which were small and not very tasty and pizzas which came our cold. They offered to redo them and the second time they were hot however the pizzas themselves were strange and to be frank I didn't like them. The staff however were... More

The food is very average, yet you pay premium prices. Tried the ribs and the beef cheeks and there was nothing special about them. Ambiance is weird, the place is not exactly a pub, but not really a restaurant either. Place seems a bit run-down, and staff were slow. In my opinion is not worth it, you are better off... More

We dined at The Grove tonight with two friends. There was a nice selection of dishes on the menu, from mixed main courses, including salads, to a large selection of pizza. Our food was tasty and good quality. My salmon on mash with green beans was beautifully cooked and well presented. My husband loved his beef cheeks and the serving... More

This is a great choice for a casual night out. You can go for a Pub, cafe or restaurant atmosphere. The choice of atmosphere is what makes it work for most people. Good quick food that's not too expensive.
