we take meat seriously
Our steaks are yielded from Prime Australian pasture fed beef and dry aged for 28 days at strictly controlled temperatures to maximise tenderness and enhance flavour. With six different cuts, in twelve sizes to choose from, there is a steak for every meat lover. But if beef isn’t your thing, there is chicken breast, grilled Atlantic salmon, lamb chops, the house specialty of pork spare ribs, Angus beef short ribs and even a vegetarian meal. Parkers Steakhouse is only a short walk from the Little Malop St Mall. Or if you’re venturing a little further afield, why not try DJ’s Smokehouse Grill in Drysdale on the Bellarine Peninsula?
