I went to the Ballarat Steakhouse tonight with my husband and daughter on a recommendation. We were looking forward to perfectly cooked steaks in historic surroundings. Unfortunately our teenage waiting staff put us in an empty back room and fed uncooked rubbery steaks - we took up their offer to cook the steaks further, but unfortunately they over did it... More

We went here expecting to pay heaps for an exceptional dinner and we were only partly proved wrong...we didn't pay heaps. That's not to say our meal was inexpensive, it wasn't, but it was a very good meal at a price and value you can appreciate. With six of us there was a wide range of meals and each was... More

Steaks here are amazing, as are the baked potatoes, but they are extremely expensive and not much variety in terms of side dishes.

When my folks said we were going to a steakhouse. My immediate thoughts were a loud room full of bogans ala hogsbreath ( shudder ). I was pleasantly surprised to find that even thought the rooms are large. The place isn't overtly noisy. Even better was to see the place is a Squires Loft restaurant. I frequent the docklands Squires... More

Over priced, cheap cuts, tasted as though it has been thawed in microwave!!! sauces were packed ones and not home make so had a plastic taste. chips were over cooked and just swimming in oil! seriously for the money you charge this is the quality,. lastly please invest in some customer service training for your staff!! they DESPERATELY NEED IT!!

One of the best restaurants around for steak, a great selection of cuts as well as vege options and seafood. Make sure you book to get in as it gets busy of a weekend and Friday night

The Steakhouse is a must visit in Ballarat. If you are a lover of Steak you will not be disappointed. The staff are just so lovely. The food is beautiful. Very plain seating area. But the food makes up for lack of interior. And eating is all about the food after all. We have been here twice and both times... More

The meals weren't bad... reasonable price for a steak, and reasonable size. Problem was that it didn't really compare to the steak restaurant we frequent at home. We had the same cut as a point of comparison, and definitely prefer the dry aged steak. Service was good, particularly helpful with dealing with allergies.
