We went for the steak and grape special on Mondays. The best deal in town! $20 for an amazing cut of steak, perfectly cooked chips and salad with a drink of choice. I got the bubbles and they were amazing. Check out their weekday specials for amazing $20 lunch deals!
Hi Tracey, thanks for your fantastic review. Great to hear that you enjoyed the steak and grape special. Hope to see you soon again :)

We had the crab cocktail for entree and it was terribly bland - very disappointing. BUT we shared the lamb shoulder for main which was amazing so that saved the meal.
Hi there. Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. I have spoken to our head chef about your comment towards the crab cocktail. He is going to make sure our kitchen staff are seasoning the dish more appropriately in the future and I hope that manage to make it in another time to try... its actually one of my favourite dishes from the new menu. We are very glad that you enjoyed our lamb shoulder. This classic tried and true dish is another of the staff favourites around here. Thank you again, And I hope to see you again in the future. Kind Regards, Ranui Toshach Assistant Venue Manager O’Connell’s Centenary Hotel 407 Coventry Street, South Melbourne 03 9810 0086
