Steakhouse
Meatmaiden brings you the best barbecue and grill in Melbourne. Our basement steakhouse, smokehouse and cocktail bar can accommodate group bookings of all sizes and has a unique mix of premium steaks and smoked meats.

Signature dishes at Meatmaiden include our grass-fed OConnor rib eye. Our 20-hour smoked Rangers Valley brisket showcases our wood-burning smoker. And you cannot go past cult favourite lobster mac n cheese. We are always sourcing special cuts for the grill - full-blood Wagyu, Kobe - and dry age in house. We carefully curate our wine list, focus on local, fresh craft beer and quirky cocktails such as our smoked old fashioned.

You will find Meatmaiden in the heart of the CBD on Little Collins Street - walking distance from Flinders Street and Parliament Stations, sporting arenas such as the MCG and Rod Laver Arena and entertainment venues like Princess Theatre.

We are accessible to everyone and open for a casual catch-up, business lunch or dinner with friends

Never fail to deliver! Always go the extra mile to meet special requests! You get what you pay for and this food and service is perfect every time and worth every cent. I do the maidens mood, it’s great value and you get a little bit of everything.

We dine here a lot and consistently the food is great with new items on the menu to give some nice variety. Staff are really friendly and always happy to stop and chat. Your glass is never empty either always around to top you up. Thanks heaps for another beautiful night team.

portion size of the sides such as the salad and fries were very small. I've never had such a tough steak with a score of 9+ either. Food was mediocre and best and not worth the price at all.

I was a regular here pre Covid and in the main the food was always good.
My most recent visit was ok however the Kobe Master Rump we had wasn’t the best cut of meat - it had a large amount of sinew through the meat which gave it an unpleasant texture.
Otherwise all ok, but rather expensive for what it is.

Good food, I’d suggest booking a booth as the centre tables have to be spread out ATM and lacked ambiance. Drinks were quick and waitstaff attentive. A little pricey, but worth it

Overall enjoyable meal, brisket was super dry almost bark like, not the same meat maiden I remember. Hangar steak on the other hand was superb, mocktail was meh.

Might give them a bit of time to get back into the “groove” of things as it’s the first week of opening.

Excellent service and delicious food. Ordered the smaller maidens mood for the two of us and it was plenty of food. Shouldn't have ordered desserts cause we were full but couldn't resist and they were worth having to loosen the belt for.

Oh Maiden, we have missed you, but the wait was worth it. You did not disappoint. The scratchings, the brisket was better than we remembered. Service, Ambience and Food were impeccable. We can thoroughly recommend MeatMaiden to anyone who enjoys great tasting food.
