Both the food and the service here are fantastic! The Grand's menu offers a huge amount of variety so no matter what you're hankering for they have something to suit. They were also very accommodating when I requested a few changes to my dish. My partner and I both struggled to finish our meals because of the generous portion sizes, although we did because they tasted so good! Overall, a good atmosphere, great service and fantastic value for money. I can't wait to go back.

The food we had was excellent.....we had a Shellfish Bowl each....boy we wish that was a main rather than just an entree!! And we had another couple of starters. All very good.

The food was generally quite good. Definitlh recommend the beef skewers entree and cheesecake for dessert. Service was very nice but restaurant lacked a little bit of ambience.

Food is good. But the restaurant is in the casino which does not make the place a good place to eat, unless you are playing gambles.

It was my Mother's Birthday so 4 of us ladies went for tea. What a lovely evening we had. Excellent service and beautiful meals. The mushroom entree was a hit with all of us,!! We had pork belly x2, steak and blue cod for mains. All superbly cooked and presented, yummo!!! Although the meals were plentiful 3 of us couldn't resist dessert.... they were another delight!!! We finished off our evening with a little play on the pokies. We all had a fab time. Thank you to First Table and the casino kitchen and staff!!!! You rock!!!! We'll be back

Absolutely incredible experience. The staff were very well presented, friendly and professional. The food was stunning. My boyfriend and I had a prawn cocktail, the chicken stack and the green curry and it was all perfect. I would definitely recommend. Great atmosphere and was very cool being in the casino itself and being able to have a wee play on the machines after dinner. Will definitely be going back

It was a fun night. We had beautiful entrees and mains, unfortunately couldn't manage dessert, we will next time. The meals were cooked to perfection and staff were friendly and attentive. We finished our evening having a little gamble which saw us going home with a few more dollars than we came with, yai!! Thanks First Table, you rock. Andrea

Service was fantastic, very friendly staff with very welcoming environment.
As for the food, entrees were great, we ordered the karaage chicken and stuffed mushrooms. Delicious. We both ordered steak for the main, I was a little disappointed with the steak as it was rather fatty and the mashed potatoes were powdery like they’d just come from a packet. Apple pie was predominantly pastry with very little apple at all. However, it was still a good night and we’d happily eat here again.

The food was great! It exceeded our expectation! Preparation time was quite fast. Dessert too was very lovely, we had the blueberry cheese cake and the passion/lemon cheesecake! Ended the evening really well!

The service was really friendly and accomodating! From those taking our orders, to checking on us in between meals if all was ok, and until we paid the bill. Very friendly service! Definitely would recommend this place for food and service!

We went to The Grand Bar and Cafe on a Thursday night, and there were already a few people there. We decided to share some entrees and a main meal between 4 people. We ordered the Crumbed Mushrooms, Grilled Mussels, Calamari, and The Grand Stack.They were good sized portions and the stuffed mushrooms were the highlight of the savoury part of the meal. For dessert, we decided to go for one each. 1 Hot Apple Pie, 2 Skillet Brownies, and 1 Rhubarb Crumble. The brownie dessert was very rich and was thoroughly enjoyed by those with a sweet tooth. The apple pie and crumble were less rich, but equally enjoyed by those that preferred a lighter dessert.

Food was awesome. Didn’t have room for dessert. Chicken was cooked beautifully and steak was very very very well cooked. Just how I like it. The perfect medium rare. Also enjoyed losing money on the ponies but that’s a different story! Thanks heaps for the good night out!

The restaurant is next to the casino on the same level. We had the steak , chicken burger and the fish that was on special . The food was lovely and the service was excellent. We were able to take our drinks from the meal into the casino once we had finished our meal. Would definitely go back.

It was my birthday and my parent took me to The Grand for a treat. The staff were very helpful and polite and the environment cosy and warm. Dad & I ordered Ribeye Steak, requested to be cooked differently and yes they were cooked exactly as we asked, generous serve of garlic butter and the chips were just the right amount so not feel too full. Yummy salad to! Mum had battered fish which was cooked beautifully and fell apart and tasted amazing. Thank-you so much, we will be back.
