DJ’s Smokehouse Grill is where to head in Geelong for proper American fare at very reasonable prices. You’ll find it on Palmerston Street in Drysdale where you can expect all the American classics from Buffalo-style wings to maple ribs and brisket burgers. The restaurant itself is simple and spacious, allowing the food to do all the talking, and rightly so. The freshness and quality at DJ’s Smokehouse Grill is clear to taste and once you’ve tried it this place is very likely to become your new favourite. Just off Drysdale High Street, DJ’s Smokehouse Grill is easy to get to from wherever you are in Geelong and absolutely worth a reservation in advance.
DJ’s Smokehouse Grill features lots of bare wood and exposed brick that make the whole place feel like you’re dining in an authentic restaurant in The States. It’s a great place to relax owing to its uncluttered feel and, in true US-style, the welcome is guaranteed to be warm. As we say, you’ll find this Geelong gem along just off Drysdale High Street on Palmerston Street, close to the main Drysdale roundabout and Drysdale Village SC.
In terms of food, you’ll want to arrive with an appetite – this is an American restaurant, after all – as portions at DJ’s Smokehouse Grill Drysdale are generous to say the least. We very much enjoyed the starter of charcoal crumbed prawns as well as the fried camembert, followed by a proper steak. Rump, porterhouse, fillet, ribeye and T-bone are available, as well irresistible burgers loaded with toppings, of course. All in all, DJ’s Smokehouse Grill is a very satisfying feed in this part of Geelong and a restaurant that the locals just can’t get enough of. Reservations are essential.
Great staff, plenty to choose from on the menu. Also an extensive drinks list. Between us we had ribs, wings, prawns, steak sandwich, broccoli and cauliflower bake, crispy onions. It was excellent, clean plates all around. And the sticky date pudding is the best around.
We had an awesome time at the smokehouse and grill.. the Canadian manager/chef was amazing, giving us tips on how to smoke brisket and even giving us a sample on the house, as we all decided to go with classic steaks after trying to decide on a brisket burger or steak. our kids were all made to feel welcome ranging from the ages of 2.5-6 years... will definitely return and tell all our friends about it. Beautiful food and even better service! Best steak in Geelong
