SquareMeal Review of Steam & Rye

Casey Jones meets the Fourth of July in a theatrical display of flag-waving and railroad imagery at this brash bar-restaurant – there’s even an art deco locomotive charging out of one corner. More confident than subtle, Steam & Rye nevertheless provides a memorable setting for the “delicious” crab-shack cuisine. As well as USDA grain-fed Nebraska beef, there’s a choice of large or small lobsters from the Josper grill, plus smoked pulled pork and 1kg barbecue ribs. Sides of corn bread, onion rings or mac & cheese echo the American theme, as do “generous” portions. A crowd-pleasing round-up of brownies, sundaes and the like concludes matters. The short wine list has a New World bias and plenty of Champagne at prices to suit deep City pockets; alternatively, try one of the “amazing” and colourfully named cocktails. Some find the place “noisy” and opinions divide on the efficacy, or otherwise, of the service.

My fiance and I went here after work as he loves American food and he absolutely loved it in there, especially the 1kg pork ribs as they were delicious, the onions rings were not too bad either, in fact it was all really really tasty, we would go back in an instant. The only downside is that its a bit noisy in there but i suppose it is more of a bar anyway.

Delicious food with generous portions and efficient service. The cocktails are original and very well thought out – I would definitely return.
