“The Worst Meal in my Life”

Grand Central Hotel
Ranked #24 of 69 Restaurants in Midland
Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 April 2018 via mobile

Let’s start by saying the owners have spent good coin on the refurbishment, it’s very nice to look at, now that aside you can get cheap pints for $3.80, now that got us there from our local, the steak was okay, the four ribs were crap, certainly not slow cooked for 5 hours more like 5 minutes in the microwave, the lamb shank came out cold and we returned it, the replacement was hot, tough and dry as a boot, they made no offer to rectify the situation, of the 6 of us that ate, our 3 cost us $75, the dominos pizza at $8 each would have been more satisfying, will be going back to our long standing hotel in the Guildford area, also the kitchen had young tackers cooking the food, where was the senior personnel?

Such a shame about the food. Their 5 hour slow cooked ribs were tougher than old rubber boots. No way in the world that they were cooked for 5 hours. More like 5 mins. Also the lamb shank came out cold. Obviously reheated from frozen. Very disappointing given that the overall look inside the place is nice. Fix up your food and maybe we will be back, but for now, never visiting again.

I have been there for the last two Saturdays nights to see the bands that play. Had a meal before hand. Very nice food. Plenty of it and the price is very reasonable. Nice atmosphere and lovely surroundings. Felt very safe. Will definitely be going back.

The food is very good here and it is not at all expensive. Corona's are $5 a bottle. Service is also excellent. We arrived on St Valentine's night and had no booking. Although they were very busy Steve managed to find us a spot. This is a grand old hotel and we used to go there it when it was called The Junction. It is air conditioned and is a very friendly environment to eat in. We will be back.

The refurbished old Freemasons Hotel and looks modern, fresh and airy. It has a relaxed feeling and is a wonderful place to sit and unwind. You can dine in the outside in the beer garden area or the inside restaurant called The Station. Art works of the old Midland railway workshops and trains are displayed throughout the building.The staff are friendly,helpful and attentative, making sure that your glass is full and your food order has been taken The drinks are cold and the food is fresh and tasty. My meal of the Angus hamburger is off the main menu but there is a specials menu available with some of the meals including a drink in the price. There is live entertainment in the beer garden or band room on selected nights. A wonderful addition to Midland and worth a visit for a meal, coffee and cake or a drink and entertainment.
