“Great view, but pricey”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

The service is a bit of a let down, considering the area that it's located in. Views on the marina are beautiful and the steak is well cooked, if a bit on the expensive side. My partner had the pork spare ribs and they were so over cooked that the bones just crumbled. They serve garden salad and a baked potato with sour cream and bacon. I would have preferred chips. It's not really a pub grub kinda place but nice.

“The Deck Steakhouse”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012

The food here is always great, the steak is always yum, it does remind me a little of the Breakfast Creek hotel, the is the only good thing I am going to say. The staff here would have to be the rudest I have ever encounted, my advice is if you do not want to work here move on.

“Nice big steaks, nice view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2012

4 of us had a business lunch here and the steaks and cold beer were great. You probably do pay a bit extra for the view and location. However, by Melbourne standards the prices are very cheap, the 4 of us had big steaks and a few beers each for about $140. In Melbourne the same thing would have been $180 to $200. Locals reckon the Austral Pub in Victoria St in town does steaks just as good, but cheaper, and without the view.

The view over the marina is great. Steaks are well cooked but can be a bit expensive.
