Hi Lauren, thank you so much for your review. We're so thrilled you enjoyed the food. But I'm so sorry you felt that the waitress was rude. We certainly don't have eye-rollers at Red Gum so I can only assume there was a misunderstanding in...More

I've been here twice and I think it is so overrated. The food is just okay, the service is terrible, it's cold and draughty in winter and expensive for what you're not getting ... I feel like they are paying for good reviews. Unfortunately the...More

The food here is as close to American style bbq as you will get in Australia. The food is awesome and plenty of it. Was spoilt for choice. The decor is perfect. Just wished we lived closer. Next time we stay on the Mornington Peninsula...More

While the flavours were good the actual size of the meal was disappointing. One tray for four people? They make it look huge on Instagram but it's not! And it's not cheap and portion size not consistent although they sell by weight. We had to...More

Hi Glenda, sorry to hear you weren't happy with our quantities. Most of the food images you see on Instagram are regrams of others images of our food and certainly not an attempt to mislead people about the size or quantity of items. Everything is...More

If you’re down this way and looking for good American-style BBQ and a solid range of local tap beer, Red Gum is well worth a visit. The meat is well flavoured and the sides fairly generous. Yes, it is a tad on the pricey side...More
