Love the Jailhouse. Good steaks, herb bread and salad bar. I dont normally get excited about salad bars, but this one is really good. Restaurant has a good atmosphere

Good steaks at a reasonable price. They use Tasmanian meat which is a bonus. You buy your meat with roast potatoes then help yourself to the salad buffet. The buffet was ok, it had a lot to select from but actually I would have just preferred a good mix of seasonal veg. My steak was cooked perfectly though. I would... More

Had a meal here tonight. Despite living in Launceston I have never eaten at this restaurant. Was very disappointed with the entire meal. The steaks were rather tough despite being scotch fillet.

Another favorite of our Launceston dining venues. The steaks are cooked on an open grill so you can see whats happening in the kitchen. They are always cooked to perfection. Great side salad bar. The Sticky Date pudding for desert is a must

Very relaxed restaurant with good steak menu. Salad bar was good for adults - but not much for children. (eg basic F+ V with no sauces and mayo etc) Our steaks were nice - not amazing! exactly what we expected for the style/price of restaurant.
