The hotel was warm and welcoming. We enjoyed the food - serves were huge and tasty! We had a steak and lamb shank meal! Good prices too! It was a lovely way to end our time in Hobart.

We’ve always received great meals from here but we recently called in here for a meal and it was extremely disappointing, I ordered a medium steak and it came out well done! It was like chewing on a piece of rubber! I would have preferred...it to be a little under but it came out over done which I find almost inedible… i ordered the seafood topper and I only got 2 prawns and 2 scallops on a skewer which is just weird! To top it off the vegetables were bland and boring! Unfortunately I won’t be rushing back for this kind of food.More

Me and my mates went there for a meal and there was 14 of us who all got drinks and food. I got the squid and salad and had a hair on it so I took it up to one of the girls and was...like hey sorry to be this person but I have a hair on my salad and was told with an extremely rude attitude “what do you want me to do about this” I just walked away at this point cause I saw id get nowhere but a real disappointment from a place that was highly talked up.More

Had lunch there today the meals were so cheap big meals and very good. Disappointed we found it on our last day. The staff are very friendly and they have an open fire. Highly recommend this hotel.

We ordered from the specials board of a chicken, bacon and avocado parcel it came out and had basically no chicken or bacon and tasted terribly smoky. Another party ordered a chicken schnitzel that was smothered in gravy to hide the fact my it was...a dismal tiny piece of chicken that tasted dry and tasteless. The salad consisted of what looked like day old lettuce smothered in dressing. We wouldn’t dine there again anytime soon.More

I went to the Shamrock Hotel based on the reviews. However, I did not like it one little bit. I got there, placed my order in the restaurant bar, and whilst there I asked for clarification about the menu. The dark haired waitress was rude...and condesending, stating here it is on the board, I can't explain it. No service what so ever. In fact, she was hostile. I thought I asked her if I could get mash, and veges, and chips, with my main, which she said yes to, and when the meal came out it was missing the mash. When I told her it was my understanding that she said it would come with mash, she said we don't put veges with mash. Flat out rudeness. She also said the same about salad. I asked her for some dressings for the vegies, and got such indignation from her. I asked if I could have some balsamic, which came in a pourer with no oil. I asked if I could have some oil whereupon I was told rudely by the other waitress with the short blond hair that the dish comes as is. I told the dark haired waitress that she was not providing me with service, whereupon she walked over to the other waitress telling her within earshot of me what I'd said. I'd paid a lot of money for that meal. The veges and the lamb cutlets smelt old, and I didn't enjoy it the customer service experience, nor the food.More

Huge serves and great food. The scotch was cooked to perfection. Great food at super cheap prices. Only problem I had to eat my steak without a steak knife. Highly recommend for amazing food, big serves and low prices. Booking a must.

Cannot say enough good things. Not typical crappy fried pub food. Such a big selection of choices. And very reasonable (cheap!) prices. Staff were awesome and accommodating. Coming back every night just to sample the menu
