Description: The Railway Club Hotel has remained one of the busiest dining rooms in Melbourne for over ten years. Its atmosphere and ambiance has stood the test of time. No pretence, just true Port Melbourne style. You can choose your own meat from our display fridge and see it cooked to perfection in our open kitchen. With such a commanding range of cuts and sizes we never disappoint. But it's not just all about the steaks. We are also famous for our seafood and expansive selection of specials. Try our chef's-own Cevapcici skinless sausages with olive tapenade, or our whole grilled flounder. Our busy traditional bar and restaurant is now complimented by our newly refurbished upstairs dining rooms that also cater for a variety of private dining needs. Restaurant Food Service Hours: Monday - Saturday: 12:00 - 15:00 / 17:45 - 21:00 Sunday: 12:00 - 21:00 Public Bar Food Service Hours: Monday - Friday: 12:00 - 15:00 / 18:00 - 21:00 Saturday - Sunday: 12:00 - 21:00

Once again a fabulous meal, attentive service and very pleasant dining room atmosphere. The beef is from Cape Grim and cooked to perfection, specials, entrees and of course the fabulous sticky date pudding makes the Railway Club Hotel a must visit for all occasions. Do yourself a favour!

We went to this restaurant for a Sunday lunch with a group of 15 which did not phase them at all. We had checked out some other local hotels in the area and they had required minimum cost per person for a booking that large, even though 4 of our group were children. The steak meals were all commented upon as being fantastic - good quality to start with, cooked as ordered and excellent accompanying sauces. Like many places, the meat came with chips but not other extras, which added to the price. But like the steaks, the side orders were good quality too. White table clothes, attentive staff and good food - all made for a very pleasant and enjoyable lunch. I would happliy go back to this restaurant for another meal - and would recommend it to others. Parking is easy, which is not always the case so close to the city.

We went to The Railway Club Hotel for a Business Dinner with one of the Customers. We have had guests both from Australia and Asia. The hotel offers casual and relaxed atmosphere, good selection on staple beers on tap (Fat Yak, Cascade, Carlton Draught, Mountain Gout), excellent wine list and of course excellent steaks. We have chosen a wide array of dishes: Pacific Oysters, Chilli Mussels, Crumbed Lamb Cutlets; 750g Rib Eye, King George Whiting, Creme Brulee and Affogato and all of them were equally tasty and affordable. The Rib Eye especially met high expectations of both Australian and overseas colleagues.

the other patrons in the room: families, couples, big group of friends were enjoying their dinner as well.

The Hotel is an excellent place for a relaxed dinner and a good way to experience an Australian Hotel.

Consistently one of the best steaks in Melbourne in a great laid back dining room. Don't be put off by the "diggers" bar at the front of the hotel. Venture around to the dining room and bar and get amongst some of the best prepared and cooked cape grim beef there is. Great wine list, oysters, sides etc etc.

I ate here recently for a work team building night. The staff were great, casual but very good service. The steaks are amazing. The price reflects the quality at this place $40 for a steak is at the high end but in my opinion it was worth it. The menu features a marble score of each cut and every steak comes with a side of chunky crunchy chips. The steak itself was cooked perfectly. Had some really good onion rings too. I also tried the veal parma which was pretty yummy. I enjoyed the way the affagato dessert was presented too. A really good steakhouse.
