A great lunchtime retreat. On the edge of the city facing the east parklands, a great Fringe venue and summertime favourite. This place has always been famous for its steaks and is well deserved - other stuff worth trying to. Comfortable and reasonable in price. Only 10 minutes walk from the centre of the city and shopping area.

We walked to The Stag from the Botanic Gardens to get out of 39 deg heat. The drinks were icy cold and the steak was cooked to perfection. The best thing was they served us at 3.30pm for an early dinner before a concert. Lots of places weren't serving meals so much appreciated.

I tried the The Stag while having to remain in Adelaide for a medical emergency & I returned 3 more times to eat, relax & chat with staff. I can recommend the Arancini Balls, Salt & Pepper Squid & the Trio of Dips & their coffee is also excellent! I'm looking forward now to sharing this experience with my husband,... More

A group of seven of us ate at The Stag Hotel. We had a variety of dishes. My crispy skin barramundi was one of the nicest meals I've had in a long time. It was so good, that when a friend suggested we eat there the next night, I eagerly agreed, and that barramundi was just as nice!

Oh what a shame; I have great memories of "Adelaide's worst vegetarian restaurant" as was so proudly blazoned onto the Rundle & Hutt corner. Now it's just an overpriced counter meal with a distinct lack of variety. My guests, also fondly remembered the glory days & lamented. The food was OK, but I'm not going back for a meal again....

If you're a vegan stop reading. For everyone else, continue. Great refurbished Adelaide pub has hit the mark with a solid quality menu and fantastic execution. There is a good selection of tap beer, cider and bottled drinks. We both had steak. It was cooked perfectly and the sacues were on point. The salad is fresh and chips/mash very well... More

$20 for garlic bread for 2!! Nice setting, excellent table service but alas a pub meal. Rude, racist,drunk patrons outside spoilt the mood which should have been managed far better. Not surprising venue relatively empty.

Stumbled on The Stag after searching for a place to eat. It was a lucky find. We ate in the more formal dining area. A bit loud but bearable. Between the four of us we had the Barramundi thai beef salad and salt and pepper squid. All meals were lovely. The staff were attentive and prices very reasonable. Would recommend... More
