Rare night off saw myself and partner end up at the Aussie Steakhouse at the Australian Hotel. The food was amazing, portions huge, well priced and the service was A+ :) Was really happy with the evening!

Went for dinner with my partner this evening. From the moment we walked through the door, service was excellent. We were expecting a pub atmosphere, but were pleasantly surprised. The food was exceptional and serving quantities so plentiful that we both struggled to eat all of our meal. A few minor oversights were nothing to worry about. All in all... More

We were met by very friendly staff but unfortunately we waited 50mins to get our meal. My steak was quite nice but others in my group told the waitress their food was cold. I would recommend the food as it was nice and reasonably large portions but having one chef to service so many customers on a Saturday night was... More

They were so dry and grizzly they were uneatable, when the waiter came to clear our table she asked if there was an issue as we hadent hardly touched them, I gave her the feedback. She said she would speak to the chef, she... More

This is a must when coming to stay in Nowra. They serve the biggest and tastiest steaks and schnitzels in Nowra. A great menu to choose from also.

Amazed that 3 choices were NOT available - given this was January and I would expect the most busiest time of year - all rather surprising. I ended up having a place of vegetables!

On the night we came in it wasn't too busy. We were seated promptly and orders taken in good time. She likes her sirloin steak medium-well and I like my rump steak medium-rare. Unfortunately, we ended up getting the opposite. I also thought a 'how was your meal?' was standard for most restaurants. Anyway, we'd like try this again if... More

This would have to be one of the best pub meals my family has had in a while - food was good, cheap and the kids had fun! Thank you
