I just had the worst steak to man kind! Scotch Fillet valued at $33.50 which tasted like Anne Franks last meal.

If you travel along the Great Ocean Road, Apollo Bay Hotel is one of the best place to have a lunch with a wide range and high quality of food. Consider that the lunch time is up to 2 pm!

Slightly better than Brewhouse though similar set up. Meal ok, again service fast at expense of quality of food. Was quite busy though.

Steak was full of gristle and overcooked, salad was basically lettuce and chips were hard and salty. Staff were lovely though. Coke Zero was watery and undrinkable, it was quite disappointing but cheap and probably ok if we chose something other than steak

Staff were welcoming and very friendly. We had a bistro lunch here. I think we just struck a bad time, as we were on the tail end of lunch time bus tour frenzy. We were not part of the tours and I think we ordered the wrong meal mainly. We had roast beef and the meat was either reheated or... More

Description
Apollo Bay Hotel is located right in the heart of Apollo Bay, only 2.5 hours drive west of Melbourne on the breathtaking Great Ocean Road. Apollo Bay is literally 'Paradise by the Sea' - a small coastal town renowned for its magnificent beaches, farmers market and local community spirit, surrounded by the Otway Ranges and only a short distance from the famous Twelve Apostles. Our Hotel offers spectacular views of the Apollo Bay Foreshore thanks to our newly renovated Bistro and Alfresco dining area, and we offer an extensive dining menu featuring traditional pub fare, pizza, delicious specials and a selection of seasonal dishes. Live music most weekends. Accommodation is available as well as a newly appointed function room. The Hotel caters for large groups (including tour groups). Please contact us for more information.
