What a disappointment. There is a lot of potential at Bazza's Steak Out, but unfortunately this is mostly ruined by the service we've experienced on several occasions.
The food is good. Our steaks were cooked to perfection, and the salad bar had a good selection. Beware the garlic mash however, this has FAR too much garlic in it. Go for the chips or the baked potato, and enjoy the onion rings. Excellent. It did take about 45 minutes to come out, far too long in a restaurant that was mostly empty.
The service was such a disappointment though, that it was hard to enjoy our meal. We saw the waitress 3 times during our visit, there was never any offer of additional drinks, no checking up on us if our meals were ok, and no offer of desserts, coffee or other drinks after we had finished our meal. There was also about a 15 minute wait for glasses for our wine (BYO), and a 10 minute wait for any other drink (the restaurant was empty, so no excuses). If there was better service, our bill would have quite easily doubled. When we did see our waitress however, she was very friendly.
Unfortunately, this has not been a one off experience and we have had this below average service each time we've visited.

If you are looking for one of the best steak South of Auckland then you need go no further than here. It is renowned locally as one of the best places for the carnivores of the world. I had a Porterhouse steak with no dressing, just neat, medium rare and it was amazing. They also serve pork and lamb, all available with potatoes in various forms, optional sauces, loads of interesting salads, and superb onion rings that are served with all steaks. The night seven of us ate there, only one of the party complained that their pork belly was quite dry and tasteless. The others all had steaks and left clean plates. Booking is required as it is a very popular place with locals.

We recently ate dinner here and had the aged steak and pork belly. The steak was a perfect medium served with mash and salad. The pork belly meat was a little dry but tasted great, and the crackling wasnt crackly just chewy. The service was excellent and they cater to dietary intolerances. The manager was an extreemly pleasant south african gent. The atmosphere is pleasant. Some live music would have been perfect but yes much to ask.

Overall a nice experience. Prices what i would expect to pay at top city restaruant with 5 star food. Great steak but only gave 3 star for food as the pork belly could have been much better. Excellent service and yes would dine there again for sure.
