We (party of 4) wandered in by chance and got a table without having a reservation. Everything we ordered was truly memorable, well prepared, tasty, generous amounts of well presented food. Service was hearty and friendly, wine recommendations were spot on. The calamary starter was out of this world! We had only one dessert (2 portions of it) and even... More

Went here last night for dinner with an interstate guest. We are new to Hobart and haven't been here before either. We booked online and had no problems on arrival - even though I booked for one less than I was supposed to. The service was friendly and excellent all night. We chose a selection of mains between us -... More

We got so lucky when we got a table without a reservation because this place is very sought after, and deservedly so. Outstanding appetizers and main plates, good wine and excellent desserts. Loved the presentation of the skewers !

We booked for a party of four for 7.30 on a busy Saturday night via the internet booking service, greeted promptly and after a very short wait were ushered to a great table in the front of the restaurant right in the window. Top spot to watch the happenings of a busy North Hobart strip. Bottle of nice Pinot Gris... More

We went here on our first night in Hobart - Day 4 of an 18 day trip, and for the rest of the trip, and even now that we are home we keep talking about this meal. Some of the best cooked steak we have ever eaten, and full of flavour. I ordered the mixed grill, and every element on... More

Visited the Roaring Grill for a 'boys dinner' with three mates and enjoyed a great meal, made more affordable by the Entertainment Book discounts we enjoyed. I had the Beef and Prawn Kebab Skewer which was innovatively presented hanging on a large metal skewer over a bowl of rice and a cream sauce. My companions had the large Mixed Grill... More

I watched the transformation of what had previously been an up-market wine bar that never quite worked into what appeared to be yet another steakhouse. Besides for over 30 years I'd always rated the Ball and Chain the best for a steak in Hobart. Finally got to go for a business dinner and what a great surprise. Everything worked well... More

Have previously completed a review of Roaring Grill but fell compelled, dare I say almost obliged to submit another after several visits in the past two months. Our most recent visit being with friends earlier this week. To suggest that the meals were anything less than excellent would be a travesty. My review however is primarily centred on my magnificent... More
