The Astor Grill

Little has changed since its opening, retaining classic formal decor and the great nine-strong steak menu offering variety. The Astor Grill team take pride in the locally sourced, fresh ingredients used. If you’re stuck on what to order, we recommend The Steak Astor which is a 200g grass-fed eye fillet served with blue cheese sauce and gorgonzola dolce crumbs. Plus, don’t forget to also check out their constantly changing wine menu too.
Once known as Beef and Seafood Grill, the now Birdsong Restaurant is the perfect steakhouse for a more casual and friendly setting that serves great steak. Here, they’re known for their Cape Grim sourced steak cuts, offering both a Porterhouse (300g), Scotch Fillet (300g) and Eye Fillet (250g) cut – all three which can be elevated with Birdsong’s Blue Cheese Butter or Garlic Butter. Plus, be sure to stick around and spoon your way through their Churros Apple Crumble.
Ball & Chain Grill
If you’re looking for the best steak in Hobart, Ball & Chain Grill is a modern steakhouse that focuses on practicing traditional cooking methods. Located in an old sandstone warehouse, the restaurant has a large sample of meat and steak all cooked over a big charcoal fire. Steak is their specialty and each cut is carefully selected and aged. The menu offers some twists on the classics – we recommend trying the 28-day dry-aged Porterhouse Steak with a side of Beer Battered Chips and Roasted Beets with walnut and goats cheese. Yum!
Frank Restaurant is a modern and vibrant Argentinian steakhouse with gorgeous waterfront views and a menu designed for sharing. The Entrana inside skirt steak to share is a standout from their excellent grill menu, served rare and smokey with traditional chimichurri sauce and salsa picante.

Between the delicious food and excellently recommended wine list, this is a very well-rounded dining experience you must experience at least once.
Roaring Grill is a warm and modern restaurant that takes pride in its protein-heavy menu, with a focus on steaks and other meat dishes. The beef is sourced from the Cape Grim region and the grass-fed wagyu hails from Robbins Island.

And, to top it all off, the wine list is mainly Australian, available by the glass or bottle. What more could you want?
