Came for Thursday Steak night and was very impressed overall. Highly recommend booking table ahead via online; gets really busy and you may be waiting for a while. Love the online ordering system; simple and easy. The steaks here are all about quality than quantity; very tender and cooked to your specs. The standard gravy sauce is excellent, thick texture and plentiful. Special shoutout to the staff here. I originally booked for 3 people but it expanded to 5, and they quickly accommodated us to a bigger table 🙏.

We went to see a comedy show near by but had time to have dinner. Thursdays they have steak night. Porterhouse steak with fries and salad for $22. Additional $8 if you want a glass of red wine. It was one of the best steaks I had. So moist and juicy. Just Devine. Service was efficient and good. It was very busy. There was a cool DJ playing some fantastic tunes. Highly recommended!

One of my favourite pups in the city, and simply had to take some out of town friends in for a pint. Had heard good things about the Parma so we decided this was the spot and boy did it not disappoint. This Parma is in my top 2 of all time. The chicken so so juicy, chips perfectly cooked and the sauce was magic. Well crumbed and generously portioned it is a must try. The Lamb looked solid too, so something here for everyone, and always great vibes in this classic Melbourne venue 🎶

I haven’t been back to their steak night for ages .. but it’s still tasty and good. Pretty quick as well considering they were quite busy. The standard is consistent. Definitely recommend to try their steak night. One thing that I need to bring up. They need to offer more desserts on the menu Previous Review: Came here for their steak night again after my last visit 2 years ago! What a great service on our table .. We thank the girl who was looking after our table tonight. Oh and the steak 👍👍👍 Normally I go here for drinks, but last time we came here for their steak night on Thursday. It was a delicious $18 steak, chips were crunchy and the sauce was tasty. Tonight (Monday) we came here for the lamb shank’s night. $15 with the mash and another $5 with a glass of red. We ordered chips and salads to share. Very good value and outstanding services. Highly recommended

Fantastic place for the best bang for buck if you come on Tue (chicken parma night), Wed (burger night), or Thu (steak night) nights. For a pub, the ambience and music are decent and not too dark. They are quite pleasant actually. The service by staff is also great. Highly recommended.
