With three different places to eat, Grand Central Hotel (ideally located in Brisbane’s CBD) is fitting for any occasion, whether it be a casual lunch or a sophisticated three-course meal. The beating heart of Grand Central, Fihelly’s Bar, provides a casual atmosphere perfect for a catch up with friends and it’s famous around town for its epic lunches, perfect for a treat on a work day. Meanwhile, The Platform Bar provides a chilled out place to sink back a few cocktails or ice cold pints and unwind, with a menu of tasty bar snacks to go along with the beverages.

From juicy steaks and burgers to Australian pub food favorites like schnitzel, international classics like lamb korma, veggie lasagne and spaghetti marinara, not to mention small bar bites like chicken wings, beer-battered onion rings and salt & pepper calamari, there’s something for all tastes and occasions at Grand Central Hotel. Located on Ann Street in the CBD, attached to Central Railway Station, Grand Central Hotel’s location couldn’t be more convenient. Popular with Brisbane locals and tourists alike, it can get busy though, so be sure of snagging a table by making your reservation in advance!
Xcellent hotel, brill staff, recommend to everyone, 5*, A+++ Everyone should stay here at least once as it is quite a useful location and so close to the station.
Love the Platform Bar. Great Atmosphere and the food is delicious. Being able to sit at the Table and look out to Central Station through the Window is a great Novelty. Good for after work Drinks or a good meal.
Meal was reasonably priced. Both steaks were cooked perfectly and the wine was very good. Staff was friendly, helpful and obliging. Would recommend for a good, well priced hotel meal.
