Decided to go to the normanby for dinner. It was a weeknight so was quiet. We were met by one staff member who was pleasant but when we went to order the next person was rather rude and couldnt care less. It was obvious she didnt want to be there. Given that it was very quiet food took a long... More

May wife and i dined there on Saturday night prior to a football game at Suncorp Statium. This pub is laid out for party Time. When we found the steakhouse it seemed to be an afterthought to the rest of the building. Clean , neat and tastefully laid out but an afterthought, I ordered a rib on the bone ($35)... More

Advised by friends, on arrival a bit surprised about the ambiance. Live music, high tables outsite. Selfordered from a clear menu. The tender juicy eye fillet and the darlingdowns wagyu were stunning, very well grilled.

Had a family lunch to celebrate a birthday - fantastic experience in that every single person in the group totally enjoyed their meal choice across the menu including steak, salmon, seafood and pasta. Excellent service and could feel the vibe from the beer garden outside the restaurant. Can't wait for the next family birthday to head back in again!

Rating this place was difficult. We had a table for 12 booked 3 weeks prior but when I rang the night before to confirm they said they knew nothing about it. On the night, after waiting a long time to get someone to even serve us, the food came out in stages ranging from waiting for 10 mins to 40mins.... More

A friend and I went here for lunch after a meeting. Decent size carpark available for off street parking in the city. Clean and tidy easy to move between tables. Plenty to choose from on the menu prices vary the steak dishes are a bit on the expensive side but you could buy a main for lunch for approx $18... More

In your birthday month you get 4 complimentary meals. Only get to chose from a parmy or a steak but you can't go wrong with 4 free meals! Although I booked a table there was no table reserved and found the staff weren't so helpful as they told us to find our own table but can't complain about the food... More

Very disappointed in the lack of service I received last night, when all the meals were brought out, I was handed a steak though had ordered a salmon. I'm not sure how you can mix those up, as I just ordered the salmon as is on the menu. The waitress didn't apologize or explain what was going on she insisted... More

While staying in Brisbane for a conference, our group went to The Normanby for a few drinks and had a booking organised for dinner for our group. The Normanby pub bought forward the Lazy Wednesday menu and pricing for our good group size. I thought the steak I had was not too bad, for the price. I don't think I... More

Recently had dinner here with a group of 8 and was left underwhelmed. While the food was okay, it wasnt great and Ive had better at better value. It was apprently table service (as we ate in the restaurant) but this was intermittant and depended on how enthused the staff were. One of our meal orders was not placed, so... More
