Big Pig Canteen
Great place for meat lovers
Good value for money
Food never disappoints here! We’ve tried most dishes and every time they're delicious. Great comfortable feeling to the place and amazing value for the quality and quantity of food. I would definitely recommend!
Great food, atmosphere and service. Cute little corner with a TV to entertain the kids too!
Staff were amazing and helpful. Food was outstanding as always. We are and will continue to be repeat customers. Thankyou
Absolutely recommend BPLP! American BBQ is always a winner. Food is good, really well made, delicious and a good selection. Only issue I'd have would be with portion size which tends to be a little small and therefore slightly overpriced. Can't fault anything else though - I'll go back!
Food was very good quality and generous portions would definitely come back again
Had a great night. Nice food at a reasonable price.
Was a good experience however a few things would have made it better!!
The place didn’t take Amex.
We ordered the buffalo wings and on the board showed 8 and there were 4 people and we only got 6.
It was a rather hot day on Friday and we found it hard after a couple of hours with no Air conditioning.
We wanted a coffee and you guys didn’t make coffees therefore we didn’t have desserts. Missed opportunity for extra income. I was told that you didn’t want to take business away from the coffee shop across the road !!!! It is called healthy competition. People wanting just a coffee will continue to go there however diners at your establishment can also enjoy a nice coffee after dining, it doesn’t make sense for my guests and I to go across for just a coffee after we spent $253.00 on lunch at yours.
I will definitely come back but these are just feedback for overall a nice place. Food was delicious credit to the chef.
Feel free to contact me if required.
We have already recommended this place to friends, food was very nice and something for everyone on our table
If we lived close to here this would be our new local. Definitely would go back and told everyone at work about it today,
Great food, great price, plenty of parking, . Perfect.
Please open one up in Croydon
Great place to chill & have a beer & some good food. Been here a few time but brisket was a little disappointing this time as it was dry. Southern fried chicken was delicious. Good atmosphere nice place to go to on a Friday night
There was a mix up with another party seating themselves at our booked table. Big Pig Staff could not have handled it better - we were asked to wait at the bar, offered a couple of free drinks while they sorted a table for us (it was a busy Saturday night so no spares) We were happy to sit at the bar tables to eat and the staff were super thankful and again offered us a free drink, and checked in throughout the night to make sure we were happy - and we were! The food was delicious, fresh and generous servings. Atmosphere was also great. My only suggestion is to have a 'please wait here to be seated' sign or direction as you enter, as we were a little confused as to where to go - but all in all a great atmosphere and wouldn't hesitate to recommend. We will definitely be back.
Good food, nice atmosphere slightly expensive but tasty food
Great environment, great food & drinks and great location.
I was really disappointed because staff ask me and my guests to leave 7pm and nobody let me know before that reservation was for till 7pm. I’m pregnant, with kids and had to leave for a outside table. Really disappointed.
Food was cold when it came to the table, when I booked the table I asked for standard seating as we needed a high chair and they put us on a tall table which didn’t suit the high chair but we had to make it work as they couldn’t swap any tables around for us. When we complained the staff didn’t know what to do and ran around the restaurant like a headless chicken. The only reason we will be returning is to use the free food voucher they gave us to apologise for the cold food
Have diner here before and would rate it 5/5 for everything!!! However, we Decided to try the Thursday night curry night.. I’m not really sure what was wrong with the staff. But no one had a smile on their face.. Not we’re they very friendly. The curry was awful.. only the flatbread and raita would be classed as authentic. I’ve had many Beef Rendang dishes and this was not even similar to any of them. The smoked lamb curry was awful bad and had a horrible bitter taste throughout the dish. The Allo bean curry was ok.. but nothing that couldn’t be made with a jar of curry sauce. But over priced for $30 for a bean/potato dish
Really dissatisfied and disappointing. Stick to what you guys do best.. American bbq coz that stuff is amazing!
Best Food in Melbourne by far. They have an ever changing list of beers that area great accompaniment to their food. My favorite restaurant in Melbourne.
I took my husband for our wedding anniversary, he is a huge American BBQ fan. As a vegetarian I was skeptical but really enjoyed the veggie options, the beans especially. The pork ribs were the favourite of the day (although brisket very tasty). Great food, a good variety of craft beers on tap and well priced overall. We’ll be back.
Really good quality food, servings were good sized, service was quick, and will definitely be back.
Awesome flavours and terrific with lots of GF choices!
Excellent as always. Lost count of the number of times I’ve been here, and I’ve brought different groups of friends over the years. Loved it. The ribs were great and the wings and poutine were great as well.
Staff are always friendly and up for a chat about barbecue or beer. Can’t wait to go back again
Awesome atmosphere. Ppl are great. Nothing is too much. Food is delish!
Once again Michelle and I had a most enjoyable meal and evening at the big pig. We have been coming here regularly almost since opening and have never once had a problem of any kind. (Except one night when I was given change of $50 instead of 20, I did give the extra back!) Good Food Good service Great Place.
Fab food, great beer selection, live music, oils not ask for a better Sunday afternoon with friends and family
I with 8 of my friends dined and had a few drinks on Saturday night
The food was excellent, bar prices very reasonable, staff just lovely & friendly
After leaving myself & my friend were standing outside waiting on a uber when 1 of the bar staff came out to see if we were ok and said if you need us just bang on the door, I was very impressed with the level of services given to us and would highly recommend this wonderful place
The food was delicious and great for the cost! If you’re a big meat eater and are ok with sharing plates etc this is definitely something you should try.
We had a high table booked and was a little uncomfortable. We spoke with the waitress who organised for us to move to a lower table! They were great and friendly, and helped when they could.
The building was clean and spacious even though there were quite a few patrons.
Given that it was footy semi finals, the noise was to be expected! 10/10 would recommend!
As usual the food was delicious apart from the ribs, they were a little dry this time, which was disappointing. And of course our eyes were bigger than our stomachs!
It's our regular meet up place. We love it there. We have recommended the place to all our friends.
Pork Belly is definitely a highlight! Also an awesome range of beer to choose from
This place looks great and has an inner city feel. But the food is TERRIBLE. Revolting Mac n cheese, the nachos were so bad and the pork so full of artificial smoke flavour we couldn’t eat it. Yet the place was buzzing so unless we are the only fussy people around maybe people aren’t all that bothered about the food? Wouldn’t recommend and would definitely not return. Party of 8.
Amazing as always! We get a group of us together every other Thursday for boys night, we cover the table with delicious smoked meats, chicken wings and Mac and cheese and it works out less than $30 each!!
This review would have been a 4.5 star review easily. However.. I booked a table a week prior as a belated Father’s Day dinner.
I originally booked it for an early dinner time & requested for seating on the open table app. I even made a note in the note section that it needs to be adequate seating as my father is disabled.
I called 5 days earlier to confirm- all good. I received an email 1 day earlier - all good. I then recoeved a funny email asking me how my time was.. I then called the reastureant. My booking had been cancelled & the guy on the phone was adamant that it was my fault and I didn’t even book seating ! I argued with him for about 10 minutes as I had this all booked in a week prior. He finally said I could be seated. However it would be on a trestle fold up table next to the bar.. yeah right.. adequate seating, my .. I won’t say it, not to worry.
My only other option was to book 1 hour & half later.. mind you we had a booking for a movie which We missed out on.
Fine, whatever. I took the later booking because I knew my dad really wanted to come here.
I Asked the guy I was speaking to for his name & thanked him for his time ( he wasted 10 mins of my time not wanting to help me at all but I still like to thank people) he then hung up! Haha what a service & I hadn’t even come yet.
When I did arrive I apologized to the person who seated us, & he had no idea what had happened. So I explained & he was sincerely apologetic.
The food was amaaaaazing, drinks were great & the rest of the night was fantastic. So it would have been a big star rating but that one guy that kept telling me I was wrong and wouldn’t help me ruined it & the end of the evening when we were meant to go out afterwards.
Thanks for the food, well worth the money spent otherwise.
Food is amazing , Mac and cheese burnt pork end , Brisket - Love it all
The food wasn’t overly great, we had vegan and chicken burgers. We had to wait 20 minutes to order on Father’s Day. I’d recommend looking into building better burgers and flavor.
Awesome example of American BBQ. Smoked Pork Belly AMAZING
We will be back!
Such delicious food that was delivered so quickly when the Canteen was at capacity. Servers were very friendly and happy to assist. Great food and reasonably priced. Definitely recommend.
I've been going to this place for years now, never disappoints. The food is great, comforting and good value. Everything on the menu is delicious: the meat, the salads, the cornbread....there is a few options for vegans too.
Guys it was a good night- thanks
Obviously busy but service was good
Only feedback maybe explain the options for fixed price menu and/ or table menu
Worked it out with a waitress
Will be back👍
