The Char Grill restaurant at The Caxton surprised me. Hidden at the back of the well known bar, the atmosphere was almost like that of a fine dining restaurant (except for the three big plasma TV's showing sports...but I think given its popularity on game days this is probably appropriate!). The food was good and my water glass constantly kept full by the friendly staff. The bar staff were very professional and courteous. A good experience.

I've been here a few times and the meals have always been great. Lots of noise though from other patrons. Plenty of screens broadcasting sport if thats your thing. A good place to go out with the boys for lunch!

Nice cool oasis on a hotel Brisbane evening before seeing the mighty Melbourne Victory in action.

After the game, the aircon is. Blessing as is the selection of beers to celebrate.

The Caxton Hotel is perfect if you are heading to Suncorp Stadium. They have big screens so you can watch other sport while you eat/drink/wait. The staff are really friendly and helpful. The food is average, but good value for money and fine for pre sporting event fare.

The Caxton is suprising in that it is a footy hotel with your typical bogan feel, somehow managing to have a really good restaurant.

I'm a regular at the restaurant, visiting about once a month. The staff are always friendly, and the food really is awesome! They specialise in steaks, but having tried some of the other meals on their menu, I can say the rest of the menu is actually pretty good too!

Service can be a little slow at times when it is really busy, but the staff always do their best and generally it's pretty good. Night life here is a bit on the dodge side- drunken brisbane bogans singing along to rock anthems mixed with eighty's hits.
