I watched the transformation of what had previously been an up-market wine bar that never quite worked into what appeared to be yet another steakhouse. Besides for over 30 years I'd always rated the Ball and Chain the best for a steak in Hobart. Finally got to go for a business dinner and what a great surprise. Everything worked well... More

Have previously completed a review of Roaring Grill but fell compelled, dare I say almost obliged to submit another after several visits in the past two months. Our most recent visit being with friends earlier this week. To suggest that the meals were anything less than excellent would be a travesty. My review however is primarily centred on my magnificent... More

Went here for a date night with my husband. Had the Kilpatrick Oysters, Pork ribs and lamb cutlets. Really good sized portions, food was bursting with flavour, great service! Would definitely recommend it!

Visited here for a birthday dinner, everyone throughly enjoyed their meals. The steaks are cooked to perfection, the best I have ever had. The service is friendly and prompt (even when busy). The venue can be a quite noisy when busy but the service and food definitely makes up for this and I would have no hesitation in returning.

The other half loves meat and when we sat down to serious steak knives even before ordering, it was obvious this was his kind of place. That said, I loved it too! Entree of haloumi arancini with a jalapeño mayonnaise and mixed dozen of super fresh and super yum oysters was a great start. We both had steak - me... More

Six of us dined here recently. One of us had a good meal. The other five were average with fish of the day being bland and overcooked. The mixed grill was ordered as medium rare for the steak - again this meal was overcooked. Salads are extra and add more to the cost of your meal to an already moderately... More

Your comments dont reflect the truth of your visit , after investigating your issues with my staff , it has been brought to my attention that the reason you were not happy is because we refused to give you a $100.00 discount off your total bill which was $220.00 , this was because of your total misunderstanding of the use...

Four of us of varying ages were warmly welcomed. Being a Monday evening we were surprised at how busy they were. Quickly settled and attended to. The food for each course was plentiful, beautifully cooked and tasty. The Eye Filet steaks, as hoped for, were tender and cooked to order.

👨‍👩‍👦‍👦 of us out for a surprise birthday dinner, with our 2 young children, staff were accomodating and really friendly. Had the lamb shoulder with some nice sides and sauces. Plenty to feed us all. With some left over. It is a big meal, but well worth it. Couldn't fault the meal or service, just a tad slow to come... More

Whilst visiting Hobart on a short weekend break we booked to eat at this restaurant as we were within walking distance and on the recommendation of a close friend . We are both so glad we booked as the place was packed to the rafters after a short wait and tasting a superb local Tasmanian Gin (Hellfire) we were seated... More
