“Good Friendly Service, Taste Food, Reasonable Price”
Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

At 9:50pm at night on a Wednesday we arrived at the Bar & Grill. With most places closed or closing, we expected "sorry we are closing" but we experienced the opposite. Service was excellent. They didn't rush us. All staff were friendly as though it was the beginning of their shift (not the end). Food was very tasty. Price slightly above expectations, however when considering you are getting a full salad bar with the price, its turns out to be a reasonable price. There was a good range of salads at the salad bar. Thumbs up for our first restaurant experience in Tasmania.

“Get the ball and chain out the kitchen - she'll love it!”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

The greeting was great, and we were treated by some incredibly attentive staff. They were very eager to please, enquiring about the quality of the meal and being genuinely helpful.

The food was fantastic! Watching the other meals go by, I was certain that this would be a restaurant I'd want to return to in the future. The sharing of two mains meant that both my partner and I were left satisfied.

Would recommend unquestionably.

“THE Steak Restaurant”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

Choose your steak (size and sauce) visit the large well-stocked salad bar and make sure to check out one of the best wine lists in Hobart (red wine). Casual yet good service. The best steak in Hobart even though they do have chicken and salmon on the menu for others.

“Great Charcoal Grilled Steaks”
Reviewed December 14, 2012 via mobile

The Ball and Chain offers great food in a pleasant atmosphere with friendly and efficient service right on Salamanca Square.

The grilled steak was amazing and there is a very good wine list that mixes Tasmanian wines with a good wider selection.

Thoroughly recommended.
