“Terrible steak for a steakhouse”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

I was very disappointed on my visit before Christmas as I'd had good experiences at the Brekkie Creek years ago. I ordered what should have been a good quality steak and it was terrible, like a $2 pub steak and poorly cooked. The chips were terrible and the salad was basic. The meal took a long time to arrive and I paid a lot for it. Very disappointing.

“Really good steak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

The steaks are really good, but on the weekend the cue is too long and really a lot crowded! It is still remain my best place in Brisbane for pub and steak!

“Fantastic steak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

I was told this is the best steak in town and it lived up to the hype. Really interesting things to look at around the pub. The steak was top quality, its just one of those places that has a simple formula and hits the nail on the head.

“Not Quite Well Done”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Went here recently looking forward to the usual order of an eye fillet, and I must say I was a little disapointed as the quality was there but the steak was well overcooked. I mentioned this to the counter staff and whilst they agreed they believed I must have asked for it to be Well Done as opposed to Medium. Showed them the receipt and they rolled there eyes. From that point I didn't worry about it and chose to eat the steak as is as I had fear of you know what happening to my new piece of meat.

I would go back to this place, but I would expect the service behind the counter to be that similar to the bars around the Brekky Creek as the staff here are (and have been) some of the friendliest pub staff in the Brisbane area.

A mixed grill of a review....

“Yummy juicy steaks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

If you like steak then this is the place to go. There are lots of variety of steaks on offer but it's just the standard salad and potatoes to go with it...nothing flash. The prices are a bit pricey but the meals are huge. If you are a small eater you could split it with a friend. Drink prices are the same as anywhere.
On weekends this place is very popular.
