Best American BBQ
We love this place! Hands down, the best American BBQ I've tasted. Delicious local wine list for me and huge selection of craft beer for hubby. Such a beautiful space to visit with family and friends. Can't wait to visit again.

?? Red Gum
We love Red Gum. Great opening hours, family friendly, great play area, fast service, great food!


We come here all the time with friends. We come and graze through lunch time on a Sunday.. a great place to bring the children, a catch up and simply relax. Always look forward coming here..


We loved this place the food was amazing. We ordered a bit of everything. We brang our 3.5 year old, which would normally turn into a disaster but turned out to be the most stress free dinner. So kid friendly with the play area in the corner. Definently recommend this place. Great atmosphere as yet to try the lunch menu


This joint is the bomb
Incredible food and service, lovely environment


Great southern experience


Absolutely incredible!
Best BBQ I have ever eaten! This place is amazing - I am there all the time! The vibe is very family-oriented and makes the whole family feel comfortable. The food is of incredible quality and I love how they’re constantly changing up their food and drink menu throughout the seasons! The staff are so friendly and welcoming and happy to chat about the menu or just chat! Best food on the Peninsula!


Love, Love this place!
We adore Red Gum... awesome place to take the family knowing that there’s always good food, friendly service and a place where the kids are welcome! Love the local choice of beers/wine too. We were there on a day with live music once and the atmosphere was brilliant. A fabulous addition to the MP region!


One of our favourites...
Red Gum is one of our most loved restaurants on the Mornington Peninsula. A warm welcoming vibe, delicious food, and the perfect relaxed ambiance for sharing a meal and a chat with friends and family. One of our absolute favourites!


Simply the best!
This is my favorite restaurant and I regularly travel over an hour just to sample the goodness that is Red Gum BBQ!! The food is superb! The service is attentive, knowledgeable and super friendly. The atmosphere is incredible. The best!


deelish feast


Amazing food and atmosphere...and I can enjoy it with kids!
The food is of high quality and sourced locally but more importantly, as a parent of young children, it is one of the few places we can go that the kids are entertained (there is a kids space) and we can truly enjoy the food and atmosphere. It’s our go to place when we have visitors and they all love it.


Amazing Ethical and Sustainable American BBQ
We have been going since they opened and we love the food, relaxed setting and the service. Martin and Melissa have put so much of themselves into Red Gun which makes it something very special.


Best BBQ in Australia
Seriously some amazing food with service and staff that never disappoint!!!



A Mornington Peninsula Gem!
Nothing beats the amazing food at Red Gum BBQ. We love the play area for the kids and the selection of local wines. Check out their merch area for some delicious goodies to take home.


Best BBQ in Australia!
