I will measure all steaks by The Ballarat Steakhouse from now on. Wow!!! Great service. Great steak. Yummy dessert. The whole experience was awesome from start to finish. Can't wait to go back the next time we visit Ballarat.

There is also a wide variety of drinks on offer aswell. The premises is clean and well maintained and the staff... More

I went to the Ballarat Steakhouse tonight with my husband and daughter on a recommendation. We were looking forward to perfectly cooked steaks in historic surroundings. Unfortunately our teenage waiting staff put us in an empty back room and fed uncooked rubbery steaks - we took up their offer to cook the steaks further, but unfortunately they over did it... More

We went here expecting to pay heaps for an exceptional dinner and we were only partly proved wrong...we didn't pay heaps. That's not to say our meal was inexpensive, it wasn't, but it was a very good meal at a price and value you can appreciate. With six of us there was a wide range of meals and each was... More

Steaks here are amazing, as are the baked potatoes, but they are extremely expensive and not much variety in terms of side dishes.

When my folks said we were going to a steakhouse. My immediate thoughts were a loud room full of bogans ala hogsbreath ( shudder ). I was pleasantly surprised to find that even thought the rooms are large. The place isn't overtly noisy. Even better was to see the place is a Squires Loft restaurant. I frequent the docklands Squires... More

Over priced, cheap cuts, tasted as though it has been thawed in microwave!!! sauces were packed ones and not home make so had a plastic taste. chips were over cooked and just swimming in oil! seriously for the money you charge this is the quality,. lastly please invest in some customer service training for your staff!! they DESPERATELY NEED IT!!
