I have been going to the Brekkie Creek for a steak since the 70's. It used to be a great moderately priced steakhouse. The formula is still there but since it's refurbishment they haven't managed to deliver my steak medium as ordered. Once our twice overdone but more typically underdone, severely underdone. I've given up taking it back. This last... More

This venue is a Brisbane classic. Unfortunately on our visit we waited 45 minutes for the food and the steak was cold when collected.

Must visit location for all previous visits to Brisbane. Dissappointed this time with overpriced tuff steak meal & lack of service. Was a mid week visit & this may be the reason but less customers should mean better service. Maybe less customers reflects it's lost appeal. Shame great location & outside dining location. Hope it gets its mojo back as... More

In recent years the food here which was once so brilliant has got hit and miss .. I'd say it's been 50/50 on either a great steak or a cold lump of meat and potato in the past 3 years .. This Thursday night , we tried again .. four eye filets .. all grilled to perfection .. all great... More

This place was very nice to arrive to. The building looks amazing and is pleasing to the eye. Inside, they seated us in the middle. Was very comfortable and I loved the plants and decorations. The table service was very good, our waitress was pleasant, kind and cheerful. The food was very average. Seemed a bit over priced for what... More

We all had steak meals and the steaks for all who ordered medium/ rare steaks were extremely happy-steaks were perfectly cooked. However I like my steak well done and it was actually burnt in parts and quite dry so do not ask for well- done steaks in the Spanish restaurant at this hotel. The rest of the meal was great!

They have great steaks, really tasty and plenty of variety. Also the beer of the wooden kegs is really good, totally different flavour. It's a pub that's been their for many a day and it has a great atmosphere, highly recommend it.

Disappointing hasn't changed significantly over past couple of decades. Lives off its famous past reputation. Staff operate on ego, not service. Many better service culture hotels with much better decor and themes around these days.

This venue is popular with trendies. Specializing in great steaks but be prepared to pay top dollar for a big, thick, tender steak that you can select. Can get some sea foods as well. There is some cheaper meals as well. Drinks are also expensive.
