The food in Sydney is continuously improving as a whole, and even more so in suburbia. We have had the fortune of visiting a few new welcome dining additions in the Sutherland Shire or the ‘Shire’ as it is referred to by most of Sydney. On this occasion we visited Graziers Grill House, which is situated inside the Caringbah Hotel. The Grill house specialises in quality steak and American style BBQ which is very on trend at the moment. The BBQ scene in Australia is blowing up at the moment. This upgrade to the old bistro is bringing a new demographic to the hotel. Young families, the after work crew and couples having dinner too.
This joint also has cool cocktail list some of our all time favourites, espresso Martini’s, ginger and lychee martini’s and Aperol Spritz too, the choice was tough. A Golden Gaytime Apple Crumble cocktail was the top pick of the night. This cocktail features a Golden Gaytime crumb, impossible to go past this option.
They also have cocktail jugs for $30 as well as a selection of Beer, cider, wines and many more options. Graziers grill house is the perfect place to enjoy a drink, remember it is situated inside a pub.
The menu is a list of street food (entrees), faves, clean & green, and from the grill. The street food has a range of starters that all sounded super tasty; red curry chicken ribs, chargrilled flatbread with chimichuri and pick de Gallo salsa, saganaki, chilli salt squid, charred corn, slow cooked pork ribs.
It was a Friday night and we were super hungry! We decided to share the feasting board which had a range of the above starters including the glazed pork ribs, calamari, sticky lamb ribs, charred corn, the best onion rings we’ve ever eaten and our favourite bite of the evening the chicken ribs, flavoured with red curry, kaffir like, and spring onions – these are a MUST order. This platter is huge and was tough for two people and amazing value at $40.
You cannot go to a grill house without ordering something from the grill. They pride themselves in selling only 100% Australian beef. Select from a variety of cuts, we chose the medallion 200g, beautifully cooked and served with seasoned fries and garden salad. We were well and truly cooked in the fullness department by this stage.
If you’d prefer a different main, there’s a few fish options; barramundi, salmon and flathead or the ever popular Parma. Throw in a cheeseburger and a steak sandwich and it makes for the perfect menu. The restaurant also has gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options available. Take the whole family, there is plenty of choice for the kids too.
Sadly we were too full for dessert, but there are so many we would have ordered if we could. Creme Brûlée, choc fudge brownies, pavlova, apple Pie or the JAM DONUT ICE CREAM SANDWICH!!
If you find yourself in the Shire and in the mood for some BBQ or a drink visit the Caringbah Hotel.
Thank you to staff for the hospitality and Papaya PR for the invitation to dine.
