Stopped in here for a lunch drink. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. I had a few of their beers on tap, but what really got me staying was their espresso martinis. They were so good I came back after the day of activities for another martini. Sam was not even on shift when I was there early in the day,... More

We were able to cater for everyone's tastes for lunch, with a steak medium-rare, fish and chips, and scrambled eggs with sour dough. Each dish getting the thumbs up! I have to say the scrambled eggs with mushrooms that I had, and a drizzle of pesto, was very tasty!

Our starter, main course & dessert were all delicious. The lamb shank was one of the specials but should be included in the menu. The service was great by Nikki J. She was very friendly and very efficient, an asset to the restaurant.

Took my 8 year old son, grandparents and others to dine at Ballarat this week. The food was great, as usual. Our waitress was A-mazing! Nikki J, looked after us all perfectly, I mentioned to her that it was his birthday, and she went above and beyond for us. At dessert time, she bought out a free dessert for him,... More

We were with a tour group, so we had limited choices. We had incredibly good steaks. Wide assortment of beers and ales as well.
