Such a great venue! We booked for a group of 12 for my partners birthday. Great vibe, amazing whiskey & beer list, and for anyone inclined to drink something else, a top shelf selection for them too.

Vegans & vegetarians won’t have much to choose to eat, but still worth going for a drink (and maybe a deep fried pickle on the side)

A great time as always at Boilermaker! Drinks and food are pricy but worthwhile - our group splurged for 'The Spread' which was fantastic, and they adjusted the cheese options to suit our group tastes. Staff are very friendly and knowledgeable about their selection of whiskies and beers.

They sort of have it together, but device was average. Good looking customers certainly distracted male staff

Service went missing;kind of wished we had brought a model to get some service

Don't order the $75 meat and cheese board. Definitely not worth your money. Over priced

"The vibing feel of this place was awesome – I definitely would return for drinks. The atmosphere was buzzing. Everyone loved the interior and cocktail menu. Service was alright and friendly, wines were affordable."

We spent seven days in Melbourne city - eating and drinking at various hotspots - and The Boilermaker House was by far the highlight of our trip. They have a fantastic whiskey and cocktail menu accompanied by a selection of delicious cheeses and charcuterie. I will be recommending this place to anyone planning a to visit Melbourne.

Fantastic whisky collection. Look for Josh behind the bar - he made me 3 different cocktails and they were all 10/10.

The food, drinks and service were all excellent, and all our group enjoyed that part of the experience. Our group ranged in age from 20's to 60's and we all found the music volume excessively loud and the choice of music unpleasant, it often seemed more like discordant noise than music. Conversation, let alone quiet conversation was difficult. This is not our first visit to this venue, the previous one was much more agreeable.

The staff were brilliant and really added to the experience.

Ambience is amazing and the drinks are great. But no attention to good service or customer care. Expect to be kicked off your table when your allocated time runs out and for your waiter to be annoyed when taking your order.

Don't book and/or expect anything out of the ordinary. Go there and have a nice cocktail or drink in the bar and move on after that.
