Ordered the fillet steak special. Lovely mashed sweet potato & asparagus sides. Steak slightly overcooked but meat was tender & tasty. Caramel mud cake dessert was really yummy.

When you consider how many terrible pubs there are in western Victoria, Chally’s is the answer. Cheap, delicious lunches, really good attentive staff and a pleasant environment all add to the experience. This place is ideal for an older person looking for a cheap lunch....More

The food is always high quality, generously sized and reasonably priced. Haven't had a bad steak and the Parma is big. It is much better than what is on offer from the pubs/RSL if you are after a 'pub meal'. Book early for Saturday nights.
