We ate at the aptly named "Bovine" restaurant and I had the best steak ever, rib eye fillet, medium/well. Also, had the green beans with garlic as an extra. Desert was not as good so the overall assessment is based on both dishes.
Lovely facade from the front but don't be fooled this is a very large hotel with many different rooms and entertainment areas.

Thanks to a delightful coincidence, I was fortunate enough to dine at The Normanby Hotel twice within 4 days. Both meals were excellent. The steaks are fabulous, the service great and I love the pub atmosphere in the Beer Garden/Bistro outside.

The Normanby gets two thumbs up from me!

I've always enjoyed my visits here, not so much as some of the blokes I know who love to go for steak feasts with mates, but it's absolutely worth a visit.

If you want a great steak look no further. Always cooked to perfection and the prices are reasonable too. A great pub where the atmosphere is always alive... Sunday sessions are awesome in the beer garden and they always have live music. There are also a few different areas of the pub where you can drink depending on the atmosphere you like.
There is a restaurant inside and outside eating if you prefer. Its about a $10 cab fare to the train station in Brisbane city. Cab rank is outside the front. There is some parking there but not a lot. Age group - More of a young to middle age group.

Not even a good group of friends improved the experience.
Bathrooms were littered with cups, a few toilets were blocked and there was no toilet paper - it wasn't even refilled.
Sleazy guys, tarty girls, several fights and useless security.
Drinks ordinary, soft drink flat but there was no room at the bar anyway.
