One of the Melbourne area’s top steakhouse restaurants, Parkers Steakhouse is famous for premium Australian pasture-fed beef, fantastic wine selection and decadent desserts. The Drysdale branch, the restaurant’s second location, offers the same hospitality and warmth you’ve come to expect from the Parkers Steakhouse name, this time on Palmerston Street in the heart of Drysdale. Open for dinner from 6pm until late seven days a week, Parkers is a must-visit destination for the area’s steak aficionados.
Owing to Parkers Steakhouse’s huge success in Geelong, the folks behind this beloved steak restaurant decided to open up shop on the Bellarine in Drysdale. The reason for its popularity is clear – their aged steaks (28 days!) are sourced from Australia’s best pasture-raised cattle, with no exception. Found in a comfortable and relaxed location on Palmerston Street, Parkers Steakhouse is the perfect spot for a family dinner or a celebration meal with loved ones, providing an unforgettable experience for locals and diners from nearby Melbourne.
Parkers Steakhouse in Drysdale draws in visitors from Melbourne and even further afield, thanks mainly to its offering of simple, boldly flavoured steaks and barbecued delights. The restaurant also features an extensive wine menu, making local gourmands and would-be sommeliers feel right at home. Decide from an array of entrees including grilled beef sausage, grilled halloumi cheese or lamb loin chops before diving headfirst into mains like the 500g T-bone steak, the certified Australian Angus eye fillet or the delicious Atlantic salmon. The desserts are delicious here as well, and include options like Double Chocolate Hot Fudge Cake and Warm Sticky Date Pudding. Mouth watering yet? Book ahead to satisfy your hunger at this Drysdale favourite!

Come here fairly often and they always have Friendly service and food is delicious as usual, will be back again, fried onion is a delicious side
Went to Parkers for my Birthday. Great atmoshere. Our Steaks were cooked to perfection, so juicy and tender. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Will definitely go back again.
It was about our 12th visit and sadly the menu no longer includes the incredibly delicious pork belly! But the steaks are still sensational, service is prompt and friendly, nice easy parking and all set in a lovely building. Great spot for a good meal and night out on the Bellarine. Nice complimentary bread upon arrival; beware though, you'll want to save room for your entree and mains, let alone any chance of dessert!
This is the place for steak. I recommend this restaurant for a simple but well cooked steak with a nice sauce, a potato and a garden salad. Don't bother with dessert though. It's not their specialty. Their chef should learn the simple process of dunking boiled eggs from boiling water in to cold water to halt the cooking process and prevent those ugly grey circles. The eggs in their Caesar salads always have the grey rings around the yolk and look very unappetizing. This is a very easy fix. Why haven't they sorted this out yet? Someone fix it please. Don't expect fine dinng here. You'll get bread & butter but no side plate, so you'll need to hold the bread in your hand while you butter it. I've always been unimpressed by this. Plates shouldn't be too much to expect. For a simple meal and well cooked steak however, this is a good place to go. The atmosphere is pretty casual.
Excellent customer service, the girls knew which persons meaks they were without asking, the cashier/ owner (i think), knew which table we were sat at, drinks were renewed without being pushy. Food was excellent, steaks were perfect. If I have one thing to say it that sides are extra but there is no room on the plate for them untiluntil you have eaten something. I would like my meal on the plate at the same time but that is a minor thing. Will be back for sure.
Eye Fillet steak was good but not outstanding considering the cost. Large baked potato with sour cream was nice but could have used some cheese and bacon bits. Sauces cost extra but was plentiful. Double choc cake was a bit dry in the middle and not enough chocolate sauce or ice cream - we had to ask for more ice cream which was obligingly provided at no extra cost. Would have given a 4.5 rating if I could have as I would rate some of the finer Melbourne Restaurants at a 5 to 5.5 and only 3 or 4 at the maximum rating of 6. They would do well to reconsider the value proposition of this steakhouse.
we thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Parkers Drysdale. The young guys serving us were efficient and quite attentive seeing as it was their first night. The food was exceptional, steaks cooked perfectly and the sauces were amazing. The ambience was a little noisy and not exactly conducive to a quiet dinner, but that is really the only thing we could fault, The food is why you dine here and it was wonderful.
Food was absolutely outstanding, the setting of the restaurant is fantastic, and the service was excellent also. Always love going to Parkers Steakhouse, is an amazing place that leaves your tastebuds satisfied from the melt-in-your-mouth steaks and condiments. Look forward to returning there soon! Unfortunately I had no room in my stomach to eat dessert, but I saw others in the restaurant receiving theirs and the desserts looked fabulous! Thank you Parkers!!
Absolutely delicious meals. We ordered a steak each and shared a side of grilled vegetables, walking out well and truly over full. The sauces are amazing!! We've now tried both the Geelong and Drysdale restaurants and we honestly cannot choose which is our favourite, there is no difference between the 2 in flavour, size, quality, options or staff friendliness. We'll definitely be back!!!
