Meatmaiden delivers choice cuts from the smoker and grill, a diverse tap line-up of craft beer, a well matched wine list and killer cocktails in the heart of the CBD

On our grill section, we dry-age select cuts in house for 40 days to achieve maximum flavour and tenderness. Our signature Rangers Valley 5+ brisket takes up to 20 hours in our custom-built smokers to hit melting point


Our wine list is carefully curated to compliment the depth of flavour behind our dry-aged and smoked meat. We’re passionate about craft beer, with six taps of Australian and international offerings in our main bar

Or just come early for dinner or stay late in our dedicated cocktail bar which has a diverse list of bourbon, whisky and spirits

The 20-hour rangers valley wagyu brisket is a standout, but if you’re in it solely for the comfort food, just go straight for the lobster mac ’n’ cheese. Read review


A shedload of meaty goodness, but vegos need not cower in fear, with several fishy and leafy options also on offer. Read review


Enter a cavernous realm that’s all dark wood and metal fittings, meat on display, glorious leather booths, copper lights and mellow beats. Read review
