My fiancé and I celebrated our anniversary here. And we love the food and the simple decor. The food was great, meat cooked almost right in front of you under hot coals..bread just melts in your mouth, and the chips, are superb. Was a bit disappointed with the salad, but you get your good days and sometimes the bad. Wish... More

If you like meat cooked to perfection and man-sized serves, this is the place for you. 1950's décor but who cares when the food is this good.

The steak came with a perfect medium doneness and you can taste the beautiful orchestra of the meat with the little bits of fat around it. The flavour is further enhanced... More

If you like steak, this is heaven. With the open kitchen at the front of the shop, the meat is right there on display. I'm sure I could have selected the individual piece had I asked. I had the 250gm eye fillet cooked medium rare, dad had the same but medium and my brother had rib eye fillet (black angus)... More

We arrived at 6.30pm on a Thursday evening. T'was a busy time. Folks who came in after us had to wait for a table. We have 40 years ago fond memories of the original Barbecue Inn in the city. Now that was an Adelaide institution! We were happy to see the Glenelg establishment doing such good business. We soon discovered... More

This place has been around for years and still delivers a great meat feed. The atmosphere is good, the service friendly and quick and the food is great. Good size portions and all at a reasonable price.

Dad and Grandfather were taken here to enjoy a steak on Fathers Day. Enjoy they did. Eye fillet was mentioned as best steak they had eaten in a long time. Double cut T bone was cooked to perfection medium rare and was tasty All in all the BBQ inn hit the mark
