I ordered the surf and turf and the mr ordered the apricot chicken. When mine came to the table my eyes nearly fell out, it was huge! I couldnt finish it so the mr pitched in lol. His was gone in a couple minutes so I didnt try that one but mine was absolutely divine. Steak cooked perfectly. Waitress was lovely too.

Food was amazing! Unfortunately service was very slow! we got our entree before our drinks also which was a bit odd. But I’d definitely come back :)

We had steak, Southern chicken, stuffed chicken & mixed grill and all the meals were perfect, thought the 50% would have been off all food but we didn't receive any discount off our extra sides or desserts

Meals were of good portion and good quality and more than fair for the pricing. The biggest let down for the venue is the atmosphere. There is no separation between the bar and meal area so you have to endure drunks playing spoons and yahooing.

Great meal, my wife had the blue cod which was beautifully cooked and I had the surf and turf. Big meals, certainly couldn't fit in a dessert. Brilliant pub food and value for money.

On arrival to the restaurant we were given menus and we sat wherever we wanted which was nice. 2 of us had the steak and 1 had the roast pork. Everything on the plate was nice, the chips were very nice, the vegies were great with a good selection on the plate, all the meals were fantastic! Even my son, who didn't want onion rings, loved them and ate mine too. The waitress was polite but not over the top. We will definately dine there again. Thanks for a great meal!

Very tasty steak and chicken, the taste of chicken is very delicious, I have not tried it before, but I hope the restaurant can hire another waiter, because the waiter is too busy now, she needs order and table service, she Very nice, but she needs to do too much work

Good food, very generous portions and great staff. Always good to have a meal here.

A comfortable place to eat if you want basic food like a roast or fish and chops. Both these dishes were very tasty and satisfying.

Nice meal and good service

- dined at Glasines Cafe & Bar on

On arrival, the welcome was lovely, continued to good service of drinks, and taking our order. There were 7 of us dining (4 x 1st table).
6 part meals were delivered..luke warm at a push, and steaks tough. 10 mins later a sauce to go with 1 of the meals and the 7th meal arrived..it was the only 1 close to hot enough.
I would normally comment if food not up to scratch on service.. but it was very apparent that the waitress (also the bar maid) was doing all she could. When I paid, I told the waitress re the poor food, she was very apologetic..stating that the "chef" was new, she did not charge us for late sauce!.
We wont be back, but this is a reflection on food quality..not service, waitress was very good..under too much pressure.

Generous portions, service was super good.

The food was great, big meals and the steak cooked to perfection. The service could have been a bit better. The server was very friendly, but after we were served our meal she did not come back to ask if we want more drinks or dessert, we had to call her to get service

Great food, very generous portions

Surprisingly great. When you walk in it has an unassuming bar/pokies environment. Then the plain bits stop, the host was great, the food fantastic, and the prices excellent. Don't judge a book by its cover!

Always such a wonderful and consistent experience at Glasines. The staff are fabulous and so is the food. I've never had a meal there that was not absolutely delicious. If you haven't dined here yet, you're missing out.

Best service in town Steak was cooked perfectly

- dined at Glasines Cafe & Bar on

Bex Rodger

As out of towners, the restaurant was easy to find and it had a pleasant atmosphere.....would probably be a bit more noisy if we'd dined later though. Our waitress was also running the bar, so she did well to juggle. The wait was a little excessive, but thankfully well worth waiting for. The steak meals were lovely and my kids enjoyed their meal too. Thanks for a nice meal out.

This small local diner is a gem we have been here a couple of times and haven’t gone past the great Southland rib-eye steaks with plentiful awesome sauce and Fab sides.
The service was also friendly and helpful so pleased to have this little gem in our neighbourhood.
