Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We’ve been many times before and we went for lunch for Valentine’s Day. I had the porterhouse which for the first time was pretty ordinary (tough) and my wife had the whiting which she said was tasty but on the thing side. The thick cut...chips are really quartered potatoes so go for the French fries instead. Staff were very attentive and helpful. The hotel as always is lovely with a homely feeling. Great selection of beers and wine.More

Had another lovely meal at the Railway Club Hotel with wife this weekend! Meal & service was great as it always is! Been going to the Railway Club since way back when they used to advertise their great steaks & "fat chips" on radio station...3UZ - showing my age, I guess!More

Hidden away in Raglan St Port Melbourne is Melbourne's premier steak restaurant. Fabulous food and wine with excellent service which was impeccable from the Irish waitress who had only been working there for one week to the Maitra Dee, service you would expect from a...Rick Stein or a Gordon Ramset establishment. A wonderful ambiance with racing and cricket memorabilia a perfect entre to the Melbourne Cup.More

The food is excellent but the service is a little slow. Took a long time for them to take away plates after we had finished our meals. One think management should look at is the state of the gents toilet. Was a strong urine smell...and just not up to the rest of the standard of everything else. Would happily give 5 stars if they changed these couple of things with my customer experience.More

Excellent venue to have a dinner. Lovely ambiance and a great selection of food options and drinks to choose from. The venue was not too busy (we arrived at 8pm). We all ordered steaks which I thought were reasonably priced and again you can go...from moderate prices to high prices again the choice is yours... Steak were cooked as ordered and service was excellent. Extensive wine list as well. We will be back again.More

Had a lovely meal and the service was fantastic. Never disappoints. Look forward to our next visit. The only thing is that you need more options for starters. More without seafood.

Best steak in Melbourne!!! Hands down!! The restaurant has the most mouth watering steak. Very professional chefs and stafff. They got our orders perfectly. The ambience was amazing, very warm and cozy. Visited in Winter and had a great time. There is a separate side...where the bar is located, if you love Australian footy, you can go to the bar side and watch some footy. Everything was perfect, even the dessert was over the top. The Crème Brûlée was the ising on the cake. Pun intended. I loved everything about the restaurant!!More

We were accommodated for dinner at fairly late notice and told there was only a 2 person bench available. We went along and were treated to an outstanding meal. Share plate for starter and steak to die for as a main. Again outstanding service from...Gwen our waitress. Don't be put off it you are only offered a 2 person bench as we will actually request it next time we visit. Very very good food and service.More

Hotel status as a "goto" place for a steak has obviously taken turn for the worse. Spent ex $300 ( 3 patrons ), RibEye... must have been coked from frozen state ( watery texture). Scotch fillet ... "Well done" ( thanks for the charcoal )...and same presented for the Reef / Beef. Certainly a far cry from quality presented on previous visits. Pleasant surroundings and staff but now " a good pub for a parma".More

Really lovely pub with several public areas downstairs and function rooms upstairs. Very extensive menu and little on the pricey side along with an even more extensive drinks menu. I didn’t have the steaks but I was assured that this is one of the best...places for steaks in the whole of Melbourne. Service is extremely good and the atmosphere is what I would describe an old English pub feel. Bookings essential.More

To be fair, not really part of Melbourne but only a short cab ride away. Very popular, so book ahead. Busy lunchtime in the latter part of the week. Service was a bit patchy with time but very friendly. You have to order steak -...ignore the rest of the food. Best you'll get in driving distance. Wine selection was quite good and only a little on the pricy side - can get some good value there. Reasonable selection of other drinks and the coffee was pretty good.More

I came on the recommendation of a friend who told me this is one of the best steakhouses in Sydney. I came with high expectations and ordered the char grilled bone in rib eye. The steak was grilled to perfection on the outside and the...taste was great but….the cut of the meat was inferior. For $90 it was quite a tough piece of rib eye. No marbling whatsoever. It was a pity because the steak was grilled well but the cut was poor. I am sadly disappointed.More
