Cosy atmosphere and great service. Steaks and accompanying sauces were pretty good rather than outstanding. Slightly surprised not to see a wagyu beef option in what is essentially a steak house. Good selection of salads from the salad bar.

A nice family restaurant, steak was tender and juicy, self-serve salad bar is a highlight. We enjoyed our dinner there.

Great night out. Excellent food. You cannot book under five people so you may need to wait 20mins or so at the bar for a table. Great location in a popular restaurant strip. We enjoyed the busy atmosphere and most of all the cuisine.

After Sydney to Hobart yacht race, we had New Year's Eve dinner at the Ball and Chain, Craig and his staff were very attentive and hospitable. The food was fantastic and service was great. Planning on eating there again.

Pork steak was delicious. Salad bar was good. Gluten free sauces were non existent. I liked the intimate mood created by the low lighting in the main part of the restaurant. Service was youthful and obliging.
