My wife and I were in Toowoomba visiting a friend and took him out to lunch at Grumpy's. We had been there before many years ago when our friend took us there, but I don't think it was called Grumpy's then, it was just an old pub on the outskirts of Toowoomba, but I can't remember what it was called then.
We managed to get the last car park directly behind the restaurant, taking the steps up to the dining room. We were greeted promptly by a chap in a cowboy hat who found us a table with plenty of space to spread out.
He asked if we would like some drinks, we ordered and he was back with the drinks in less than 5 minutes along with some menus for us to peruse. He left us with the menus for a few minutes then came back to take our orders, orders were given and then in what seemed a very short time our meals were on the table in front of us.
I choose the entrée of Apple Smoked Pork Belly, with a garden salad and Plum Sauce, plus a bowl of chips to make it a main meal. Well the pork was cooked perfectly, the crackling was totally crispy with just the right amount of spices on it, the plum sauce the pork was sitting on was to die for, the little pot of Apple Sauce to pour over the pork was perfect and the chips were heavenly, just the right amount of crispy on the outside with soft and perfectly cooked potato on the inside and just the right amount of seasoned salt.
My wife choose the main meal of Grumpy Mushroom Carbonara with added bacon, she said the Mushroom Sauce was totally beautiful and the whole dish was just perfectly balanced. Our friend had one of the steak dishes that came with a jacket potato and a side salad, he ordered the steak well done and it was cooked to perfection, he enjoyed the dish very much and said the flavours were spot on.
We all enjoyed the chips as the bowl of chips I ordered to bulk out my entrée dish was so large I could never have eaten all of them myself.
My wife our friend and I can highly recommend this Steakhouse as a top place to have a meal, they don't just do steak, there is a whole lot of other options on the menu, so if you wan to have lunch or a great night out you will not regret going to eat out at this establishment.
