Wonderul food and outstanding and attentive service. Big shout out to Keystone and the manager for accommodating us on Melborne cup day even though they were closed for a private function. It was my sons birthday and he enjoyed the southern chicken started and then fish and chips. I had the deep fried potato skins and for main I had the brisket burgers which was the absolute bomb. four star service - Ruth Surachmat

Food was amazing. Ordered the Spinach Nocchi which was recommended by the awesome waitress we had, and it delicious. Partner got the eye fillet, which he said was beautiful and cooked perfectly.
Highly recommend this restaurant. Will be back again.

Such wonderful food and wonderful service. Our hostess made sure we were well looked after, and let us take our time with ordering. - who doesn’t look at a menu a week in advance and still knows what they want.

Food was absolutely amazing, so much flavour and quick to come out.
Well done Keystone, we will definitely be back

The food was absolutey delicious. I had the Snapper and my husband had the Eye Fillet. The service wasn't as good as last time but I think that was due to new staff they were training. I had the wrong entree given to me but this was quikly rectified and this did not put a damper on our night at all. The staff were very polite and friendly.

Twas the night before Hamilton,
when looking on First table
Keystone bar looked able
To serve us a good feed.
The reservations were booked by the human with care,
In hopes that our tummies soon would be there;

The humans were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of brisket burgers danced in their heads;
We made it to Hamilton and went through our day,
Then it was time for dinner, so we went on our way.

When seated we were treated to fantastic service and care
Our tummies were groaning with burgers and beer.
Away we went after a slamming good meal,
With intentions of returning soon we feel!

GOLD STAR!

Good service, the staff are friendly and helpful. Food was mainly good, but the beef burger had no flavour. Had the loaded fries (the best) and the fish of the day and they were delicious! Ordered the choc marquise and warm skillet cookie for dessert - amazing!

Wow, I hadn't been to Keystone in such a long time but when it popped up at first tables I thought id try it again. The food was absolutely delicious and we left with a full belly and a smile on our face. The service was great. The waiter made sure that we were taken care off but didn't crowd us through the night. Will definitely be going back to try there bottomless brunch.

Just Average!
I was asked if everything was ok with the meal and said was good except ash over main and server basically dismissed it and said this was a new technique and loved it. Didn't matter if I did!

Service was great, ordered the calamari and aranchini which were both quite yum. Mains were a little disappointing, the meat for both the ribs and beef Wellington were dry in some areas. Dessert was a highlight, the banoffee creme brûlée was so good. Overall, a pretty good night

Was overall a good night. Stuff needs to be better trained and pay more attention to customers with children. Important is to provide advise on food spiciness/ seasoning.

Overall it was ok, service was good. The food was average, when the food comes out way too quick, you know it's just been heated up thus resulting in dry meat. Food presentation was good. Dessert was great.

Had a great experience at Keystone. Service was great, food was great - can't really fault it.
We were lucky to get a car park right outside but it might pay to research parking options first.
They don't have a kids menu or kids-size meals being a bar so the kids had a burger each and we all shared one side of fries which worked well and was a great recommendation from our waiter.
My wife thought the toastie was a bit too salty but I tried it and I think it may just have been the strong flavour rather than over-saltiness as she's used to Asian food. The lamb salad was great.
Overall a great bistro-style menu and atmosphere.

- dined at Keystone Bar & Restaurant on

Exceeded expectations! Starters got 2 to share between 4 was plenty: Fried chicken had a tasty coating and boneless yum, also the calamari which was nice too. All our mains where a really good size with plenty of flavour. Beef Wellington tender as, Lamb salad had plenty of meat, 1/2 ribs tender plenty and tender came straight of the bone with right amount of sauce, Pork hock was large and super tasty. Great wine great & friendly service, definitely will be returning.
