The Grill is overpriced and the servings small - I ordered an eye fillet medium rare and it came out medium. It was a smaller piece than the steak my 7 year old got, and his was medium rare... almost rare. My dish cost $44, his was $15. The other kids meal was fish and chips - while the fish... More

Just don't bother. Bad food and worse service. I wouldn't ever go back here to this over priced, over rated restaurant.

Despite having restaurant prices, the steaks at Palmer Grill were cooked to a pub standard (and that’s an insult to some pubs!). My rare steak was fine but my partner’s medium steak was well-done. The service was shocking- my partner ordered a beer and received a wine (apparently Little Creatures and Pinot Grigio sound similar??) and, to add insult to... More

Oh dear. Our table was not ready when we arrived, so we had a pre dinner drink at the bar. I ordered a cocktail, but the bar tender had know idea how to make it, there was no crushed ice, just blocks? No limes so had lemons had to do. Not a good start. There was a staff member off... More

paying $56 for a T-bone steak that could have been better picked and cooked from Woolworths. Each time we ordered a drink, we were told they had run out or don't have the spirits to make it. The staff were lovely, however the management of this place need to pick their act up or get new management.

décor was worth seeing to be believed, a giant dinosaur out the window, palmer cartoons and family shots with famous people

Booking not recognised. Staff were more interested in taking order as soon as possible. (perhaps a staff party later) Requested a break between entree and mains...*8mins and not 20 as stated. Food very average. Wine prices some 300% up. overall not a pleasant dining experience.

We have done this three times now and really enjoyed it. Last time group of 8 of us entertained a lady celebrating her 100th birthday - a perfect choice for her and didn't she love it all, including the pianist playing (Sat and Sun) It's a real treat and something special and a bit different for visitors too. Very nicely... More

What is it about eating in a restaurant that is virtually empty? There was no atmosphere at all, nothing special about the setting at all. The view from our window was a giant T-Rex, not a very romantic or pleasant thing to look at from a dinner table. It's head kept bobbing up and down and its mouth kept gaping... More
