“Definately best steak we've ever had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013 via mobile

We went here on recomendation of our accomodation place and boy we were suprised. First impressions were of a busy pokey place with lots of people for a tuesday nite. Service was very friendly and prompt. Out of the 4 of us eating, 3 had the steak with the 4th ordering the burger. The steaks, i have to say were AMAZING! Best we've ever had. Apparently the burger was pretty good too. Totally yum!!

“Good place to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

I was invited with others for an informal business dinner in August. The staff were friendly, and the food very good. All of us enjoyed our meals, and they were cooked to perfection.

“Fantastic - as usual”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

I am a frequent dinner at the jail house and every time they get it right. I get to eat at some great restaurants but jail house is one of my favourites. Josh at front of house has cooked thousands of steaks himself and understands what it takes to make a great steak restaurant. Wine list would have to be the most extensive in Launceston I would be surprised of you didn't dind a favourite. Two for me are the black guts Siraz (don't let the name pit you off its a basket pressed shiraz ) or the yalumba signature fantastic. I can highly recommend the jail house grill Launceston
