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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Great food options. Their food never fails. Always lovely service with a smile on a beautiful old hotel with character.

Haven't been here in over 5 years, and unfortunately wasn't the best. We used to go weekly over 10 years ago before the change of furniture and had always enjoyed our meals.

I have always had the highest regard for the Lucas, in my experience the food and the quality of restaurant staff has been exellent. A group of us went for tea, there was a new menu and of course in these days of a cost...of living crisis a fairly stiff price hike. I ordered the half portion of chicken from the grill, What came out was a small plate with a slice of chicken breast, a few chips and a very tired side salad, I was very disapointed to say the least, others in the group didn't fare much better, deep fried fish and snitzels that looked as if they had been in the fryer far too long, very dry and unappealing. What has happened to the Lucas? it used to be one of the best restaurants around, sadly that's no longer the case.More

Ordered the meat lovers pizza. It was not good. The bottom was undercooked and there was barely any meat, and there was a stack of cheese on top that was tasteless. There was no flavour apart from the sauce on the bottom. The pizza base...was nice and thin, which I loved. Also had the garlic prawns and rice. This was very bland. Could not taste any garlic at all and desperately needed seasoning. There was also a couple of prawns that still had some poo shoots left. Pretty sure the prawns were frozen and not fresh. Had the chicken carbonara as well which was quite nice. Have attached photos of the pizza hot and also cold so you can see how much cheese was on it. Was disappointing all round. Took 20 minutes from when the order was received at the hotel to when it was delivered to us in Latrobe.More

Have dined here previously and always been happy with my meal until today. Ordered a chicken snitzel and instead of getting a freshly crumbed chicken breast I got a frozen chicken snitzel. I would expect this from a takeaway shop not when dining out at...an establishment that offers table service. Let's dine out for a frozen snitzel and glass of wine said no one ever.More

Popped in here for our last dinner in Tassie before boarding the Spirit. Easy walk from cheap camp behind IGA. Dining Room nicely set up with good social distancing. My husband had the TBone with mushroom sauce and he said it was very tasty and...the sauce particularly yum. I had a 1/2 serve Roast Pork. Tasty and with 5 different vegetables. Staff very friendly. Would come back hereMore

Four friends dined here for dinner after three days hiking in the wilderness. We all thought the meals were great. I had the steak which was fabulous. The room is large and impressive. It’s an old pub but hasn’t been trashed instead it’s very tasteful...and historical so I highly recommend for those passing through LaTrobe.More

The dining room is well set up, pleasant decor, large and spacious. The servings are large. I had the half salmon serving which was a large and delicious dinner. The T bone my husband had was huge but a bit chewy. He probably should have...got a better cut of steak. All in all a very enjoyable meal, great service. We would go back there again.More

Booked a table for Sunday lunch. Good job too, it was packed. What a great place. If it weren't for the standard bistro tables and chairs I would have thought I was in a posh Victorian restaurant. Loved the decor and fittings. The food didn't...disappoint either. A great Sunday roast pork and cheesecake for $20. Great stuff. Took me days to get my weight back down.More
