The service here was exemplary! It was a busy Saturday night and the place was fully packed. We each ordered a huge steak; I went with the 450gm ribeye. 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

A Glenelg institution, the BBQ Inn has been serving up the best steaks in Adelaide since the 1970's. To this day it maintains remarkable consistency in the quality of its meat and the way it is cooked. If you want "medium rare", you will get "medium rare" unlike so many other places. That said, the decor is plain and a... More

If you want a delicious steak cooked just the way you want it, this is the place to go. We had a meal here on a busy Wednesday night and judging by the number of tables being occupied many times over, obviously the word is out about the Barbecue Inn. The food is delicious, the wine list more than adequate... More

We came here for a large birthday table. When I say large there was close to 20 people, including kids, which took up a large part of the small sized restaurant. I wasnt a fan of the overall atmosphere of the place. Its not somewhere we I would spend 2-3 hours enjoying the whole experience. To me its more like,... More
