Wind your way through the wonders of Transport World to find this gem of a restaurant.

Surrounded by vintage trucks, this large venue has a bustling atmosphere that’s great for families and business meetings alike. Gather your favourite people for a cup of Havana coffee and a good catch-up, or settle down for a hearty meal.

The menu features everything from dry aged rib eye steak to beetroot risotto with mushrooms. The fish dishes are outstanding; try grilled Stewart Island salmon, pan fried turbot and panko crumbed blue cod. There’s a good selection of gluten free meals too.

Ensure you save room for dessert – The Grille is renowned for its irresistible sweet treats. Between the likes of churros with dulce de leche, caramelised white chocolate and rum fondue and more, it’s almost impossible to pick just one…

We had a lovely meal. I tried the salmon which I have never ever ordered at a restaurant before and it melted in my mouth. Vegetables with it complimented the salmon and I tried celeric! Another first. Stcky date pudding had ginger in it and was devine. Took two girls with us and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves, raving about the blue cod and hot chocolates! Oh and the brownie. We were well looked after, food was great, loved the fire and setting, and would go back again.

Was a great way for my wife and me to end our day, which was our wedding anniversary. Being early meant we had the place to ourselves initially. Love the car license plate drinks menu, and everything else that was car related, right down to the sinks in the bathroom. Food came out quickly and my steak was cooked to request. We both loved the quality and quantity of the food, and had just enough space for an ice cream sundae each. Service was great, very polite and checking up on us regularly to make sure things were good. Will definitely be back again and either bring our wee family or some friends along. Highly recommended!

This was our first experience using First Table and it was fabulous! The Grille was a good choice.
We walked into an immaculate restaurant with the sun streaming in though the windows. The was upbeat music playing and our waitress was very friendly and helpful.
The meals arrived quickly and they were great, well presented and delicious.
(Pan fried fish and blue cod meal) and we ordered the delicious bearnaise sauce as a side.
Great venue, great food, great staff and great price.
We'll be coming back soon.

Absolutely amazing! Food was great and plenty of it. We asked for a special request for a meal to be changed a bit and this wasn't a problem (unlike some places). The waitress was fantastic knowing exactly what we wanted and popping back regularly to check drinks, desserts etc. The highlight for our son was that his meal came in the deck of a chevy ute! So cool. Would highly recommend that the grille is definitely invercargills place to go. Thanks so much for a great night!

Very good

- dined at The Grille Invercargill on

We had been here before and this was one of the reasons we chose to come back as the vegetarian in our group had commented it had one of the best vegetarian dining experiences she had had out in Invercargill.
This time though very limited and standard options which was disappointing.
The rest of the meals were nice and the service very good.

Service was most efficient. Food was prompt in arriving, nicely plated and large servings.
Only a few other diners at this time so no real atmosphere but the surroundings are interesting to look at

Food was great! Lots of flavour. Our dessert order was taken and we waited a substantial amount of time and the waitress came over to apologise, she explained what happened and also reimbursed us for how long we waited on our desserts. Great to see a business doing this when customers wait. We will be back.

I'm often disappointed with what's on offer as a vegetarian but not this time it was exciting and delicious, would definitely repeat the experience go the grille for great food and great service!

We enjoyed the setting - the motoring theme is fun. Our dinner was excellent; the blue cod with crispy potato skins delicious and the grilled haloumi a taste sensation. We were glad we had room for desserts- the lemon tart and sticky date pudding were yummy.
