    We really enjoyed our meal, delicious food and big portion too. Reasonable price and good customer service. Good variety of tap beer avalanches, perfect for friends meeting up for catch up.

    As always, the Railway Hotel, South Melbourne, did not disappoint. The staff are always so welcoming and friendly and the food is delicious. Great pub vibe and a place to have a few drinks with your meal. Will definitely be back ????

    Steak was a bit overdone as I ordered medium rare, the sweet potato fries and the mushroom gravy was too salty ... However, the service was good, staff friend.

    Excellent food and fun lively atmosphere - never disappoints. Highly recommend. The most annoying thing is writing 120 words in this review when I can say it in 8 words

    Very good but too long to wait for drinks at bar and no table check in other than at the bar and we had to wait behind 10 people at the bar to know table number

    The food was great. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had one misunderstanding with an entree that was immediately rectified and it was a great night. Will definitely go back.

    Lovely roaring fire for winter nights cute dining room, bar can get a little noisy, but that’s expected we dined early with a 4 year old and 10 year old ! In time for happy hour for mum and dad??

About the restaurant

An Absolute Classic

This is a pub-goers pub. A classic. The Railway Hotel in South Melbourne sits proudly on the corner of Ferrars Street and echos the pubs of old. It’s a destination for locals who are looking for a cold beer and a good steak (especially on Wednesdays when $15 steak night is on). The art-deco décor hasn’t changed since the Railway was built in 1968, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.The seasonal menu is stacked with classics and topped up with some influence from America's deep south. The hot wings and brisket compliment the large smiling face of Elvis in the back bar. Wine barrels have been converted in to large tables, providing the prefect space to try the sharing platter and a few drinks whilst watching the footy on a Friday night. For after work drinks, dinner with friends or family or a lazy Sunday session, check out the Railway Hotel.

Best dish: Porterhouse steak with sweet potato fries
