Critic's review

Graham Howe

A nostalgic landmark for great burgers and steak, egg and chips in the ‘burbs. The choice cuts – fillet, rump and pork belly ribs – are fall-off-the-bone tender, basted with an in-house BBQ sauce, and flame-grilled to order. Consistency, generous portions, succulent flavour and value for money are a winning formula. The steaks come with no frills or fuss but with all the trimmings, down to hand-cut chips and fried onion rings. The pepper, garlic, mushroom and cheese sauces are as legendary as the garlic snails and garlic rolls on the side. Nothing much ever changes around here – which is exactly how the locals like it.

The hungry go for one of the house specialty steaks - jalapeno, pepper, mushroom and cheese melts. Vegetarians will find little on the menu at this old-fashioned steakhouse with staying power – while pescatarians will find a reasonable choice of fish.

Well-priced selection of beer, cocktails, shooters and wines – especially big red wines to go with steaks.

Friendly and efficient on slow or fast nights. The kitchen stays open until late.

A retro steakhouse with big TV screens, slot machines and a cover band singing the old folk and rock classics.

Enjoy lighter fare off the bar/pub menu – homemade burgers ‘n chips, chicken and calamari baskets, or try a three-course menu for good value.

  • Pirates is a very warm family orientated restaurant. They always have excellent music which keeps patrons entertained well into the night. The food is good and reasonable and the atmosphere in the restaurant is warm and inviting.

  • I visited Pirates Steakhouse Pub with friends. Firstly, the service was excellent... Just as i thought that it could not get any better, my meal was served!!!!! My steak was medium to rare as requested, tasty and completely mind blowing. The Juices flooded my plate and it was completely mouth watering. God knows how much i love a hot plate of food and my steak was served hot - straight from the grill. My experience was completely out of this world and i've been recommending Pirates to absolutely everybody i know. If you looking for an awesome tender steak, an awesome sized steak, in an awesomely friendly environment then look no further. You definitely will not be disappointed. This is one for the books. 10 out of 10 PIRATES!
