What’s The Best Steak Restaurant Brisbane Has To Offer In 2022?

Fiasco’s Steakhouse At Morrison Hotel, Woolloongabba

First and foremost, The Morrison Hotel should be at the top of your list when you’re thinking of grabbing a steak in Brisbane with the boys. The venue’s resident steak restaurant, Fiasco’s Steakhouse, has long been one of the most reliable kitchens when it comes to those perfectly cooked cuts and reasonable prices.

Perhaps a testament to how important steak is at The Morrison Hotel can be found in the way that the entire a la carte menu is organised around it, with each steak listing coming with the recommended temperature and a wine pairing suggestion. This is of course alongside essential accompaniments like a satisfying twice-baked potato (with a side, obviously, of The Morrison’s popular mushroom sauce).

What to order: Rib on Bone 400 grams ($59); Rib Fillet 300 grams ($45)

Address: 640 Stanley St, Woolloongabba QLD 4102
Contact: (07) 3391 1413
Opening Hours: Monday – Thursday (11:30 am – 2:30 pm, 5:30 pm – 9 pm); Friday – Saturday (11:30 am – 9:30 pm); Sunday (11:30 am – 9 pm)


The Norman Hotel, Woolloongabba

Another iconic Australian steakhouse, and yet another reason why Woolloongabba is the place to be if you’re looking for some of the best steak restaurants in Brissy. The Norman Hotel is a true destination for steak lovers, self-effacingly described as “Brisbane’s worst vegetarian restaurant” with more than 16 cuts of steak. Feeling a bit of a monster hankering? Why not take a run at the Texas T-Bone – 600 grain-fed grams of absolute carnage.

What to order: Texas T-Bone ($59.90)

Address: 102 Ipswich Rd, Woolloongabba QLD 4102
Contact: (07) 3391 5022
Opening Hours: Tuesday – Thursday (11 am – 10 pm); Friday – Saturday (11 am – 11 pm); Sunday (11 am – 10 pm)


SK Steak & Oyster, Fortitude Valley

The Calile Hotel, located on James Street, has fast become one of the best luxury accoms in Brisbane and easily one of the more popular haunts for locals – thanks to an on-site dining precinct that’s primarily powered by the swanky schmooze-fest that is SK Steak & Oyster.

After availing yourself of the restaurant’s many jumbo seafood starters, we recommend moving briskly onto the steaks, with choice cuts including the New York-style strip sirloin and Kiwami Wagyu with a 9+ marbling score. Obviously, with such a high-quality raw product going on the grill, we wouldn’t begrudge anybody who orders their steak sans condiments. But assuming you’re a saucy kind of fellow, you could do a lot worse than SK’s popular mushroom sauce.

What to order: Prawn Cocktail ($40); Kiwami Sirloin New York Cut 400g ($200)

Address: G.12 The Calile Hotel, 48 James St, Fortitude Valley QLD 4006
Contact: (07) 3252 1857
Opening Hours: Mon – Wed (5:30 pm – 12am); Thurs – Sat (12 pm – 3pm, 5:30pm – 12am); Sunday (12pm – 10pm)


Blackbird Bar & Grill, Brisbane CBD

With views onto the iconic Storey Bridge, Blackbird Bar & Grill is one of the best steak restaurants you can find in Brisbane’s CBD. Ditto if your ultimate steakhouse pairing involves access to one of the city’s best al fresco vistas.

Despite its proximity to Eagle Street Pier, one shouldn’t write this off as a tourist trap either: given the kitchen takes a serious tour around Australia with offerings like Black Angus beef from Riverina, local cross-bred tenderloin from the Darling Downs and the mighty Mayura Station tomahawk.

What to order: Riverina Black Angus ($77); Platinum Angus Cross ($49); Wagyu Tomahawk ($27/100g)

Address: Riverside Centre, 123 Eagle St, Brisbane City QLD 4000
Contact: (07) 3229 1200
Opening Hours: Sunday – Tuesday (12 pm – 12 am); Thursday (12 pm – 12 am); Friday – Saturday (12 pm – 3 am)

Sasso Italiano

With the exception of Otto – which also makes our list of Brisbane’s best steak restaurants – there aren’t a wealth of restaurants around the Queensland capital serving up legit bistecca florentina. Sasso, one of the best new restaurants in Brisbane remedies that with not one, but two ways to satisfy your appetite for Florentine-style T-Bone.

The positively leviathan 1kg bistecca is a must if you’re eating with company. Like all great steak, it’s cooked simply and with minimal frippery: served with a garnish of fresh lemon, rosemary and flake salt (to really boost the produce’s natural flavours). How good?

What to order: Bistecca Alla Fiorentina, 1 kg ($99)

Address: Shop 4/148 Logan Rd, Woolloongabba QLD 4102
Contact: 1300 185 730
Opening Hours: Tuesday – Thursday (5 pm – 10 pm); Friday – Saturday (12 pm – 2:30 pm, 5 pm – 10 pm)


Vintaged Bar & Grill, Brisbane CBD

Located inside the Hilton, Vintaged Bar & Grill is a reliable option when you’re looking for a solid steakhouse in the Brisbane CBD. Moreover, the Vintaged kitchen benefits from a direct line to some of the finest local butcheries in southeast Queensland – with special attention given to partners from Warwick, Oakey and the western Darling Downs region.

Still need convincing? All the steaks here are accompanied by bone marrow, pan grattato and a selection of mustards so you can tweak your dining experience to your heart’s content.

Black Hide Steakhouse, Brisbane CBD

The Gambaro family’s popular stalwart, Black Hide Steakhouse, can be found on Caxton Street: offering a sophisticated space that doesn’t pretend to be anything other than a straight-up destination for steak lovers, that does things with consistency.

The Black Hide kitchen has an exclusive line on supply from local beef and cattle supplier Stanbroke. All the steaks here are sourced from Veradilla farm – with highlights including the rump camp and 1.2kg Angus tomahawk. Be sure to load up on an array of supporting dishes: including a surprising selection of seafood, such as a starter of school prawns or yellowfin tuna.

Breakfast Creek Hotel, Albion

Between such delightful inventions as the barramundi spring roll or an entire baked camembert served with fresh focaccia, it’s clear that the kitchen at Breakfast Creek Hotel has a bit of a soft spot for comfort food. Grab a table in the palatial beer garden to make the most of this historic Albion watering hole, which has been around since 1889.

The steak menu here is both extensive and reliable, with the very best offering (at least for our money) being ‘The Creek’ signature – a generous 200-gram portion of eye filet, piled high with scallops, Moreton Bay bug and garlic prawns. Add a few schooners to the equation, and you’ve got the makings of a very fine Sunday session.

What to order: The Creek ($66)

Address: 2 Kingsford Smith Dr, Albion QLD 4010
Contact: (07) 3262 5988
Opening Hours: Monday – Sunday (10 am – 3 am)

Graziers Steakhouse Restaurant At Hamilton Hotel, Hamilton

Head along to Hamilton’s Graziers Steakhouse Restaurant and Bistro if you’re looking for the best steak in Brisbane’s inner northeast. The reliable kitchen is located in the (perpetually heaving) Hamilton Hotel, offering up some of Queensland’s best produce and a straightforward steak selection that covering all the usual bases including American rib eye, wagyu rump, T-bone and eye fillet.

Admittedly the menu’s far-ranging scope is a bit scattershot, but the kitchen pulls through admirably should you choose to order any one of the premium chargrilled steaks, which are all reasonably priced. The most expensive option – the monstrous 500g Graziers American Rib Eye – will set you back less than $60.

What to order: Graziers American Rib Eye ($55)

Address: 442 Kingsford Smith Dr, Hamilton QLD 4007
Contact: (07) 3268 7500
Opening Hours: Monday – Sunday (10 am – 4 pm)


Moo Moo The Wine Bar & Grill, Brisbane CBD

Despite its jocular name, Moo Moo is as serious as Brisbane steakhouses come (and certainly, one of the swankier options to choose from when looking for a place to host your next lads’ lunch). The grand, moody dining room throws a spotlight on the restaurant’s specialty in cooking a damn fine hunk of red meat; with dry-ageing cabinets given pride of place for all diners to see.

What to order: Kyushu Black Wagyu, 48 months aged ($128)

Address: Port Office Building, 39 Edward St, Brisbane City QLD 4000
Contact: 1300 070 710
Opening Hours: Mon – Sat (11:30 am – 12 am)


Streetcorner Jimmy, Teneriffe

If you’re on the lookout for the best steak in Teneriffe, you need look no further than one of the cushy pews at Streetcorner Jimmy. Ensconced inside a historic building dating back to the 1910s, it has plenty of vintage character and remains one of the more relaxed spots where you can tuck into one of the best steaks in Brisbane.

Speaking of which, we suggest you order the 500g rump steak. It’s a circus of value: served alongside beer-battered chips and a fresh garden salad, fewer feeds in Teneriffe are as all-encompassing as this one. What to order: Rump Steak, 500g ($43)

Address: 38 Vernon Terrace, Teneriffe QLD 4005
Contact: (07) 3252 0598
Opening Hours: Sunday – Thursday (12 pm – 11 pm); Friday – Saturday (12 pm – 12 am)


Port Office Hotel, Brisbane CBD

Credit: Port Office Hotel, Instagram

Once again returning to the comfortable familiarity of the Brisbane CBD, the Port Office Hotel is always a solid option when you’re hankering for a steak. Popular because of its extremely central location, this long-running stalwart sees an influx of traffic later in the week.

While not strictly a steakhouse – the menu cycled through a variety of pan-Asian influences – The Port Office offers a pretty mean Wagyu rump cap, scoring highly on the marbling and flavour front. Dinner for two? Consider splitting one of the restaurant’s beastly lamb shoulders – served bone-in with salsa verde.

What to order: Wagyu Rump Cap ($68)

Address: 40 Edward St, Brisbane City QLD 4000
Contact: (07) 3003 4700
Opening Hours: Monday – Saturday (11 am – 12 pm)


Walter’s Steakhouse, Brisbane CBD

Overlooking the Brisbane City Botanical Gardens, Walter’s Steakhouse is one of the more relaxed and casual steakhouses in Brisbane City – a favourite for long weekend lunches among locals.

The best tact here is probably to offset the amount of seafood on the table with premium bovine proteins, so you’ll want to take a mixture of squid, soufflé, and (don’t forget) the house specialty – a humongous porterhouse dry-aged in-house, priced to order.

What to order: Signature Porterhouse (M.P.); Flash-Fried Squid ($26); Twice-Baked Soufflé ($29)

Address: 219 Alice St, Brisbane City QLD 4000
Contact: (07) 3012 8640
Opening Hours: Monday – Tuesday (12 pm – 12 am); Thursday – Saturday (12 pm – 12 am)


OTTO Ristorante, South Bank

Long regarded as arguably the best Italian restaurant in Queensland, so much of OTTO’s reputation has pivoted around its signature bistecca offering. Notwithstanding one other venue (Sasso) the city doesn’t really offer many outlets specialising in the certified Tuscan crowd pleaser: so it’s something of a no-brainer splurging for the Bistecca di Manzo. Crafted with Rangers Valley beef – and accompanied by a ragu of mushrooms and pancetta – we can safely say that this is a signature that will impress even the most carnivorous of diners.

What to order: Bistecca di Manzo ($76)

Address: River Quay, Sidon St, QLD 4101
Contact: (07) 3835 2888
Opening Hours: Wednesday – Sunday (12 pm – 9 pm)
