Fantastic charcoal grill food and fresh seafood a 187yr old venue

When compared to all the fine dining of Hobart and Tasmania that we dined at Ball & Chain Grill faired lower down the scale. Mostly this was due to it serving more traditional food and not embracing culinary gastronomy. This is OK – eating in a 187yr old venue was impressive and serving more modern fare would have clashed. I will always remember Ball & Chain as the first place I discovered oyster pigs in a blanket and for an epic eye fillet cooked on a charcoal grill to buttery blissful perfection. Full review is up now on Spooning Australia.

Ball & Chain Grill Overview

Situated in the heart of Salamanca Place, Ball and Chain Grill restaurant boasts a colourful history, hosted by a convict-built building. Emanating a charming, old world style, Ball and Chain appeals to both locals and tourists alike, attracted to a casual vibe, but carrying a fulfilling depth from the stone building’s historical prominence. Once seated among rustic timbers, peruse the menu and prepare for premium quality meats, carefully chosen from the paddocks of local farms to be grilled over charcoals to release the natural flavours. For those after an alternative, fresh fish is sourced from the docks just minutes from the restaurant’s doors while Tasmanian vegetables create vibrancy on the plate. For a taste, delve into whole grilled Tasmanian rainbow trout with herb butter.

Best Known For

Slow cooked beef brisket for 24 hours at 84 degrees and finished on the char-grill, served with smoky barbeque sauce.

    The Ball & Chain Grill located in Salamanca Place Hobart is one of the must visit places I had heard about when planning the Tasmania trip with mother dearest. An old stalwart venue of Hobart I was sold by the reviews, the history and the food. A restaurant that is all about fresh produce and famous for their meat all cooked on a charcoal grill.
