“Wonderful Sunday Afternoon”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

First time visit to an iconic Brisbane Hotel. Met up with friends for lunch & spent a very pleasant Sunday afternoon here. The weather was glorious, the ambience of the hotel superb, the meals great & the company excellent. The hotel is well known for its many choices of steak. My steak was good, but was not cooked to my preference of medium. It was very rare, seared well enough, that there was no blood. However, it was tender & tasty. I would definitely go back for another visit.

Room Tip: This is not a hotel for accommodation. I accidentally touched the Sleep Quality buttons & cannot...

I was taken by local friends who spoke highly of this place. Although huge there are discrete areas so still a good atmosphere even when not busy. Two of our three steaks were over-cooked. We took them back and they were replaced without question. Not a great mistake to make in a place that claims to be a steak specialist but great recovery. Good range of beers and spirits. History room is also interesting.

We had an afternoon at the Breakfast Creek Hotel over the June long weekend and had a very pleasant time catching up with friends.
We choose the hotel for it's history, family friendliness, ambience and food and got more....amazing quality rum cocktails served by incredibly knowledgable staff.
We happened to pick a quiet time to visit which suited us well with two children in tow.
After setting them up with kids meals & activity packs we could catch up with friends with ease.
The variety of beer on tap was great (especially the SA McLaren Vale - Vale Ale), but the choice in international and Australian rum was staggering.
The staff mixed us a special mojito and a treacle cocktail and they were both delicious. Their attention to detail to their 'craft' was fascinating to watch & their stories about each rum and drink they were mixing were great to listen to.
We also had food (steak & chicken) which to be honest was good - but nothing to rave about and it was much higher priced than we would have liked to have paid.
In saying that our cocktails were $10-15 each but amazing!! :)
So if you're in Brisbane - go to the 'Brekky Creek' and try a different rum drink than a Bundy (or one of them if that's your thing).
Maybe steer away from the expensive things on the food menu (have some sides) and instead settle down for a couple of swish cocktails and ask the staff what they'd recommend. I don't think you'll be disappointed!

We ate here with friends on out last night in Oz. All fours of us had great steaks at reasonable prices. Good portions. It was busy, but well worth it. Will definately come here again next time in Brisbane

Had a family dinner there recently. Prices were quite high but the quality of the food was very poor. I ordered one of their "famous steaks" medium to well done. What can I say? It was burnt on every side and looked like well done was done again. My partner asked for medium and got blue steak. Service was rather poor, it would take a while to get the drinks. So wouldn't come back, there are better places.

Pretty nice place to experience an Australian Pub. Quite a few different bars and beer gardens...not to mention the best steak for the money in Brissy.
You order at the counter, pick out your steak and pay right away. No waiting on table service and keeps the price down.
My waygu steak was cooked perfect and good slaw and tater to go with it. Washed it down with a guiness and red wine, was a nice way to enjoy the meal. Atmosphere was great too. Everyone is outside enjoying the Evening and drinks, just a good evening out.

My friends took me to this place to celebrate my birthday. It had the pub feel and the food was simply amazing. I had the steak and lobster platter and it was so yum. The queue was a bit long so you need to be patient (dont come overly hungry) but it was worth the wait. They had a good selection of meat at varying price ranges. Beer selection was also good. The outdoor seating was nice as it had a pub feel without the stuffiness of a smoky pub. Reasonably priced place.
