This restaurant is a must go to since we first discovered it 25 years ago. The most tender succulent steaks that don't need a sauce to enhance the taste. We have never been disappointed. The atmosphere is fantastic, a great place for a romantic dinner. Well priced meals to a quality that you would pay a lot more if on the mainland.

The Ball and Chain restaurant is a good place to have a hearty meal. The service is friendly and the food is of good quality. There are plenty of various wines and spirits to select from the menu.

I've eaten steaks in many restaurants around Hobart, but none better than I have always had at the Ball and Chain. They concentrate on serving fine steak, beautifully cooked, with an open salad bar. Simple. They also serve a range of other food as entrées (in the Australian/British sense, not the American, which we call Mains). Can't comment on those as I have never wanted to go past the steaks!

Love this place from the second you walk in to the second you leave it is an experience you will want to remember.

We ordered the meat platter and the soup for entrée and it was simply delicious!

For mains we went the seafood platter for 2 and nailed it in no time! ... perfect way to experience yummy seafood and great service at a very reasonable price.

Would have given 5 put of 5 if we didn't have to wait so long for drinks in between delicious meals.
