This was my first visit. I worked in the hospitality industry for 19 years. The restaurant had music playing that was not very pleasant to listen to, especially at the volume it was being played at. On the menu is says that they will bring out your cut of beef for approval before the kitchen cooks it. They did not bring out the cuts beforehand. My son and I both ordered prime rib but it was cut closest to the shoulder, so it was very big around, but was quite thin. I would have been able to tell that was the case before if they would have brought the cuts out for approval. The steak was over salted, but was cooked to the proper degree of doneness. The veg was not seasoned at all, and the creamy garlic mashed potatoes were far from creamy. They were lumpy, quite dry, and well under seasoned, so I ordered a side of the gravy, and it was supposed to be beef gravy, but had so much tomato paste in it that you would think it was a tomato gravy. The waiter who served my son and I for his 16th birthday was hospitable though, but never checked on us after our meals came out. He ended up bringing a piece of cake for my son after our meal, which was a nice gesture. Our dinner for the two of us was just over $100 before tip. All in all I'm not confident in saying that I would return for another meal given the subpar food experience.

Food and service were great! The restaurant was very busy and somewhat noisy but it was New Year's Eve.

It’s a hidden gem. We never knew this steakhouse existed but we are so glad to have the opportunity to have a lovely dinner there. The waitress Sarah was lovely and the manager was very friendly. The food was excellent and we would definitely recommend this to our friends

Took too long to get the bills and my orange Almond salad was not brought to the table to take home.
I didn't remember until I was home.
Too bad.

4 of us attended. 2 had steak and it was very good. 2 had fish and it was poor, appeared and tasted not to be very fresh. Prices are very high for the Lindsay area. We have been customers of Hobarts for many years (since it first opened) and always found it excellent until this visit

The food was excellent, the service was excellent. The menu had changed slightly and they were no longer offering beer flights, however, the waiter ended up bringing over a couple sample glasses of the beers I was hoping to try. My wife and I went for our anniversary, and they brought us out a piece of cheesecake on the house. It was an expensive night out, but we knew that going in and expected that. I definitely would recommend it, however I would make it for a special occasion as it was pretty expensive.

service was amazing- server was very friendly, knowledgeae and welcoming!
steak was good - for the price there was no veggies with the steak and the baked potatoe tasted like it was re heated in the microwave and wasn't cooked fresh.
menu wise - if you dont eat steak ; hopefully you like seafood because most of the other options include seafood

I highly recommend for any occasion you may have. The service is with a smile. They do check with you occasionally for any wants and needs, this I appreciate. Our group was there for a birthday and we are sorry for being a bit loud, the family doesn t get together often anough. We had brought flowers and we were offered a recipient to put them in. They took the time to help us have a group picture. A dessert was offered to the b-day girl. Thank-you for this beautiful evening
I would like to add that this is perfect for a business meeting or a romantic evening. It has a cozy relaxing atmosphere, which you would all enjoy.

We arrived early for a reservation but were seated immediately. Service was slow, the food was good however it was not hot. We were celebrating a birthday and I told our waitress he did not like chocolate. She said the birthday dessert was a chocolate celebration and brought it anyway! I’m sure a substitution could be made under certain circumstances. Undecided about recommending to friends....

I was excited to try this restaurant for awhile and was pretty disappointed. I ordered filet rare and it came medium well. Very salty as well. For a steakhouse I was pretty disappointed, we won’t be back :(

Reason for overall and 4 star was due to the inability of the ONE wait staff to look after the guests while we were there. We waited 20 min to pay our bill. No fault of the single wait staff in this as she had to deal with a table that was unable to make up their minds as to their wine preference and she had to go over the list several times. Perhaps I should have given a 5 star in lieu
We will return.

The food is always amazing! However this pictular evening it took us an hour to get our meals. We were six people. The salad and entry took a long time too before our main course. It was definitely NOT the waitresses fault. Something else was not going right somewhere. It was not a packed house eithier at 8 00pm when we went.

We have been going to Lindsay Hobart’s for years. We have loved the food and the atmosphere but we were very disappointed this past visit. We are cottagers and last Friday was the first time this summer we were able to get there. We left feeling we wouldn’t go back. We were very disappointed in our meals and felt it was very pricey, more than the Keg and no comparison in food quality. We wondered if it had changed hands as we didn’t recognize any of our favourite staff. So disappointing.

Very disappointed on August 9th. We have frequented many times in last few years. We always had good dinner. Had guests from the U.S. We raved about this place. Service was terrible. Roast beef was not that good. Had to return as was cold. We had made reservations in advance as well. It was a costly bill..no apologies by server for delay at all. I also would suggest...as most high end steak places do...serve some bread in advance. Not sure if we will return again☹️
