    Starter and entree nice however main dish was disappointing considering the cost. Expected the$48 porterhouse steak would be tender, instead it was quite chewy. Service was good, waiters very friendly. Overall the food was quit average for high price.

    Service slow, slack and not at all friendly Spent a lot of money for lunch, but could not recommend service. Then order a cheese platter.......even a mouse would be hungry by portions, biscuits stale and straight off supermarket shelf (wouldn’t have them at home to compliment a platter) Improvement needed to recommend or revisit Have a boat at marina, will try elsewhere Luckily we have a great family, so enjoyed each other’s company

    Two dishes were served without the menu stated green thai curry sauce, had to be asked for. Waiter blamed chef. Quality control? Side of potatoes forgotten had to ask for them. Very noisy.

    Three of us had the daily special which was Reef and Beef which was very reasonably priced. Steak was cooked perfectly! Another of us ordered the linguine marinara which was also very nice. We then ordered share platters for dessert and it was delicious! Would recommend the sticky date and pannacotta! Also beautiful view of the city from our table. Service was also great and staff very attentive and friendly. Would definitely come again!

About the restaurant

On a see-food diet

Gather by Hobson’s Bay in one of Melbourne's most classic, yet relaxing settings. The bright dining space, delicious cuisine, beautiful views and friendly staff make this one of our favourite restos in Williamstown. The menu is carefully divided between ‘starters’, ‘field’, ‘paddock’ and ‘ocean’, and features everything from scallop ceviche to Gippsland grass fed Black Angus. There is also an extensive cheese menu and a selection of delicious desserts. Given the seaside location start with a few freshly shucked oysters and the tempura soft shell crab. Other menu highlights include whole South Australian rock lobster, 150 grain fed Black Angus and the Shellfish Tower. Trust us, food by the sea doesn’t get much better than this.

Best dish: Shellfish Tower to share - whole king prawns, crab, scallops with garlic & parsley butter, battered King George Whiting, oysters natural and Kilpatrick, Port Arlington mussels in marinière sauce, french fries and garden salad.
