Description: The Railway Club Hotel has remained one of the busiest dining rooms in Melbourne for over ten years. Its atmosphere and ambiance has stood the test of time. No pretence, just true Port Melbourne style. You can choose your own meat from our display fridge and see it cooked to perfection in our open kitchen. With such a commanding range of cuts and sizes we never disappoint. But it's not just all about the steaks. We are also famous for our seafood and expansive selection of specials. Try our chef's-own Cevapcici skinless sausages with olive tapenade, or our whole grilled flounder. Our busy traditional bar and restaurant is now complimented by our newly refurbished upstairs dining rooms that also cater for a variety of private dining needs.

Turn back time this little gem is full of locals watching sport with their tab guide and their eyeglass balancing on the end of their noses.
The barmaid has an honest charm and recommended the mussels. The food was fabulous can’t wait to try the steak sandwich next time.

We celebrated my son's 29th birthday with a lunch here today. The service was very attentive and the food was absolutely delicious. Our steaks were cooked beautifully to order. The chips were crunchy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. The sides were generous and the bread beautifully fresh. It was a memorable meal.

An amazing Steak 'fridge'! Hard to go past, but my partner can, as he always has the flounder. Good serve of chips, though our veg did not arrive. Best to book, and can be a tad on the noisy side, but certainly worthwhile, especially as it is a local of ours. Wine perhaps on the high side, but great for a special lunch/evening out.

Had an excellent meal here. We got an Uber out and walked the 40 mins or so back into Melbourne after. Had a 3 course meal consisting of peach salad starter, grain fed ribeye steak and panacotta. My partner had the calamari & filet mignon. We both had an amaretto for after.
For drinks we had a lovely bottle of red wine, a Shiraz I believe.
Price wise it wasn’t cheap but not the most expensive either. You are paying for high quality steak in a nice environment. The staff were very attentive and the food delicious. The menu was easily adapted for gluten free which my partner is.
You definitely need to book prior to attending. We went on a Saturday and it was really busy.

Took my parents here whilst they were visiting from the UK. Food arrived and we were very dissapointed. Steaks were tasteless and chewy. Prawns were very underwelming for the cost. Staff were very nice until we complained, then they were non existenet.Food in the bar was much better. The manager was extremly rude and unhelpful. Will not be going back. There are much better steak places in Melbourne to go to.
