I have dined at Squire's Loft weekly now for the last month. First time - Mediocre service but fantastic steak. Doneness medium to perfection. On that basis, I decided to go back the following week. Second Time - Walk in at about 9pm on a Saturday. Table for 1 available upstairs but the staff decide to give me a table... More

In all my years of steak eating, I am yet to enjoy one as much as I have each time I visit this place. Amazingly seasoned, cooked to perfection. Just wow!! My go-to place to impress friends with Melbourne meats. Side order of friend onions and waiter's recommendation on an awesome red and your in for a winning night.

We had a family dinner (2 adults and 2 teenagers) Steak and chicken was ordered and all meals were delicious. We have been frequenting this restaurant for over 20 years approx. once a year and have never had anything but a great meal and great service. It is a bit pricey but well worth the money.

First rate Restaurant good food and service choice of at least 8 steaks plus other dishes cooked exactly as ordered. Good choice of bottle beer and wines. Comfortable seating not crushed in waiters on the ball filling your water glass. Good choice of sauces to have with your food or just as it comes. Would recommend.

We booked for a Sunday evening dinner. We were promptly seated in the very noisy upstairs area by the stairs. Not ideal. We waited about 25 minutes for our drinks, while dining on very bland bread served with tacky butter sachets. When our mains finally arrived (steak and chicken), they were good but not worth the money. And the baked... More

What a fantastic night! Awesome food, extensive wine list and great hosts. The roasted vegies ate delicious and the chips are a must have! A really fantastic night with perfect ambience and music to match.

The first Squires Loft was opened in 1992 in Church Street Brighton. Our reputation for consistently delivering great steaks and unique flavours led us to a larger store in South Yarra where we are still located today. The success of the Squires Loft formula and demand for Squires Loft branded products led to substantial interest from staff, customers and business owners who wanted to duplicate the business. This has resulted in 15 steakhouse restaurants operating around Australia. These steakhouses are located around Melbourne, Country Victoria, Brisbane, Gold Coast and Western Australia. Further steakhouses are in the pipeline and there is significant interest, which we believe should lead to more Squires Loft steakhouses opening. As a result of this demand and significant recognition of the Squires Loft name, Squires Loft FRANCHISE Pty Ltd has been formed to enable the expansion of the brand.
