If you are looking for the best steak in ballarat, this is your place. You do pay a premium but I think its occasionally worth it.

Visited last week and as always, left feeling full and satisfied. My steak was perfectly cooked (M/R) but my partner ordered M/R and some parts were rare but it was still delicious. Ordered one of the meals with the riblets and it was a nice addition! We always get the veg skewer as well- however it would be nice to... More

This is a large open restaurant in a heritage building. As such there can be a great deal of noise. Staff were bubbly and friendly and a number seem to be on their first shift. Appeared to be served by a raft of people so no continuity. Had to keep asking for water to be topped up. We were not... More

Probably the best steak I have ever been served! However there is no cosy corner to sink into, the building is open and tables feel small for a group of 4, we were squeezed up against a wall which led to the toilet! I would definitely return but I'm afraid it did lack some TLC inside, if they re furnished... More

A variety of steaks on offer - well prepared to your liking. the steak house has other foods for offer if you are not into steaks, but why do you go to a steak house in the first place. There is also a wide variety of drinks on offer aswell. The premises is clean and well maintained and the staff... More

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
