Stumbled upon this place and totally lucked out. Great pub atmosphere with tons of beer on tap and knowledgeable staff. Meza plate was great, falafel was particularly good. Nachos were a solid 4.5 out of 5, and the tofu poke bowl was absolutely a 5 out of 5. A great mix of flavors with lots of avocado!! We'll be back!!

The greatest pub in town! When you walk into the beer hall it immediately feels like home. Cold beer, great food, and friendly staff! Located perfectly above Central Station for quick, safe getaways after a few cheeky pints. It's an absolute treat. Make sure you say hi to Rob behind the bar...he's an absolute legend!

This is a great pub! Inside is very large with a wide range of drinks. All the bar staff are friendly and the prices pretty reasonable given the good location. Outside there’s a few tables adjacent to the main road which is great place to people watch and hang with a group in an evening. The crowd is friendly and somewhere I’ll sure be returning to!

The Grand Central has a buzzing atmosphere and it is a great place to visit. The staff are super quick and very friendly. It is tricky to find a place to sit if no booking was made but wander through the various rooms or have a look outside. The salt and pepper calamari is recommended. The jalapeño poppers are massive but needs a kick. It is very conveniently located at Central station. Make sure to at least have a pint or schooner!
Initially we attempted to visit Friday afternoon but it was sooo busy. Mainly suits but as it was Remembrance Day I suspect that also accounted for the very large crowd.So came back Saturday night for dinner. Drinks were very reasonable at around $9/pint. Food was also very reasonable with the large schnitzels $19 each for the classic and $24 for the excellent Mexican.Some excellent specials on other days. Wished we'd visited on Thursday to take advantage of the $10 burgers.


Our cocktail lounge serves premium whiskey, spirits & creative cocktails, all in a space that oozes class and sophistication only rivalled by past-gone eras.

But it’s not just the foodies who’ll be satisfied with a trip to Brisbane City. Immerse yourself in culture and heritage with ample cultural components to explore. The Central Railway Station remains a Brisbane icon, home to the historic Gillett & Johnston clock tower installed in 1901.
