If you want a delicious steak cooked just the way you want it, this is the place to go. We had a meal here on a busy Wednesday night and judging by the number of tables being occupied many times over, obviously the word is out about the Barbecue Inn. The food is delicious, the wine list more than adequate... More

We came here for a large birthday table. When I say large there was close to 20 people, including kids, which took up a large part of the small sized restaurant. I wasnt a fan of the overall atmosphere of the place. Its not somewhere we I would spend 2-3 hours enjoying the whole experience. To me its more like,... More

I love this place, consistently good steak, it never disappoints. We always get a Scotch Fillet and a Rib Eye med rare with the traditional salad on the side. The steak is top quality, cooked perfectly and served with their cevapchici's. The service is always friendly, although don't expect a fine dining restaurant. It has more of a cafe relaxed... More

4 of us went out for a Saturday night special, 2 went with fantastic steaks, 1 chicken shaslick and a beef burger. All meals were well proportioned and the steaks cooked as ordered. It ios not a cheap night out by any stretch, but the food is exceptional and the service top notch.

This business has been at Glenelg for years, being a family affair. The restaurant offers B.B.Q. meats which are cooked exactly to your liking. The food is usually quick, steaming hot and delicious, not dried up as in some restaurants but juicy even when well cooked. The meat that is on display behind the glass counter is fresh and large....

I took interstate friends here for a hearty and from memory, reliable steak on what turned out to be their 35th wedding anniversary so I hoped they wouldn't be disappointed. Quite the contrary. The decor has enjoyed a makeover but the formula is still a winning one - the emphasis is on the meat. The accompanying salads are simple and... More

Arrived on the off chance of a table, a few days before they were busy. Got a table and ordered the biggest T-bone they sold. Well cooked and tasted good. Side orders were also good. A nice clean restaurant with great food. You should leave quite happy and not hungry.
