Brisbane's best steaks

Brisbane, what’s good? We’ve got some beef to pick with you.

In fact, Brisbane’s best beef is served in our favourite form: steaks! If you thought a delicious steak was rare to come by in our beautiful city, think again.

There’s no need to hunt around any longer, as we’ve herded together this list of the best steaks in Brisbane to feast on below.   

Black Hide | Petrie Terrace and CBD

With more awards than a champion bull, Black Hide has a reputation for being nothing short of perfect, and it’s well deserved. Only the best cuts of prime Angus, wagyu and organic beef make it to their grill (with only the best sides to match). If your appetite is insurmountable, then the only thing that’s going to fix it is the tomahawk: a massive 1200g Angus cut cooked to perfection. Share with a few others, or devour it yourself (if you dare).

Moo Moo | CBD

Meat goes completely upmarket at Moo Moo. With a superb selection of wine and special attention paid to sides, this place makes cave-style cooking stylish again by roasting all the hand-selected, all-Australian beef over coal. Their signature Jack’s Creek spice-rubbed wagyu rump cap is spot-on and comes served with herby wagyu kipfler potatoes. Once the chef carves it at the table, feel free to tuck in!

Walter’s Steakhouse and Bar | CBD

Where better than the timeless Walter’s to enjoy a gorgeous dry-aged steak?  Alongside pristine views of the nearby Botanic Gardens come their house speciality: prime Australian grain-fed beef, dry-aged and cut in-house. Those CBD corporate lunches just got a whole lot better.

Breakfast Creek Hotel | Albion

Say hola to the ooh la la range of cuts in the historic Breakfast Creek Hotel’s Spanish Beer Garden steakhouse. Making steak extra fancy is their most popular main named The Creek, a decadent petite rib fillet served with a generous helping of Moreton Bay bug, Queensland prawns, Hervey Bay scallops, and topped off with rosemary-seasoned chat potatoes and a sprig of dill – surf ‘n’ turf us up!

Vintaged Bar + Grill | CBD

The name says it all: Vintaged serves up the tastiest steaks, wine, and cheese because (like George Clooney) the best things in life just get better with age! We like the sound of the hefty 300g Cape Grim scotch fillet from good ol’ Tasmania. It’s best dished up with lemon, watercress, and red wine jus (in case you can’t deal with anymore potato… weird).

Fiasco’s Steakhouse | Woolloongabba

Dining at Fiasco’s is almost a rite of passage growing up in Brisbane. Whether it was a first date, a Father’s Day dinner or a pre-cricket feed, this is one steakhouse we all have a memory of. With a long history behind them, these guys know what they’re doing when it comes to a good steak. But the real reason we love them? The premium eye fillet wrapped in bacon and char-grilled to perfection.

Les Bubbles | Fortitude Valley

Life’s les bubbles in this Fortitude Valley restaurant, especially when you get your hands on their top-selling steak frites! Enjoy it buffet-style (aka all you can eat chips) with a soft leaf salad and your choice of either Café de Paris, green peppercorn and cognac, or bearnaise sauce. There’s options for the vegans and pescatarians, too (though we recommend this spot for the carnivorously-inclined).

Not checking out these venues would be a grave missed-steak.
