Great as always so tasty so smoky so good always is
Everything was so tasty, but the brisket was a standout!
Fairly cramped table seating, pretty noisy and main courses were small for the price
This visit was extremely disappointing, the brisket was inedible we returned half of it as we shared a plate, the burnt brisket ends were just tough meat... even the pickles seemed unfresh......nothing like the last visit we experienced.....The bartender said no to two drinks we asked for although you did actually stock it ....We had to show him the stomping ground range and the alcoholic ginger beer ????????....However our host was not at fault .... so disappointing.... we love fancy hanks and recommend... but what we were served was borderline insulting and we actually paid for the over cooked meat that we didn’t eat ?????? I believe someone should of asked if every thing was ok ? Who orders brisket and doesn’t finish it ?????? So disappointing
Devilled egg only half an egg...ok
Corn ribs ...dont bother dry chewy.
Brisket small seve fatty...verty tender..tepid temp...rub/crust very salty. Not pleasant.
Lamb neck excellent not much meat when you take the bone into account.
Very noisy expensive wine list looked around no one drinking wine...no wonder. Good wait staff.
Great, fun experience. The food was fantastic and the cocktails were delicious
Great atmosphere good food and drink. Service was delightful, attentive and accommodating.
Staff were friendly and very attentive from the moment we arrived. Good value for money and all of the dishes we had were brilliant. The 1/2 chicken, brisket, broccoli and corn ribs were all highlights. We'll definitely be back
Loved the service and atmosphere. Was Valentine’s Day but the food came promptly and we didn’t wait to order. They even gave us a free hot sauce to try and it was incredible. Definitely recommend the Yams and Fried Cauliflower and Brisket
We really enjoyed our dinner but were disappointed with the croquettes as to why I didn’t give it 5 stars but the meat and cornbread were delicious! We will return to try something different next time.
Good food with a busy atmosphere. Served promptly. But disappointed the biscuits/scones are no longer on the menu.
Excellent barbecue. Lots of variety and well balanced food, not too full on. Highly recommend.
Fantastic service and food. The noise level was high but it was worth every minute. Loved the food. It was amazing
A great outlook and good service. Food was good however the preordered ribs were disappointing. They were quite rare and tough, won’t preorder the ribs again. But overall a pleasant evening.
Delicious food and lovely decor and great service. Loved the bar upstairs, too.
We were recommended this place by friends and were excited to go. The ambience and the service were great but unfortunately the food wasn’t as good as we’d heard. We paid $90 for a rack of ribs and they were chewy and had the consistency of fake rubber. Think we maybe picked the wrong thing but as it’s supposed to be what they’re known for we were a little disappointed.
The food was really nice, we loved the corn ribs. The service was good. The only downside was the music was too loud. Will definitely be back.
Absolutely brilliant. We had a great time and a marvellous meal. We would love to come here again and will certainly recommend
Amazing food, and the brisket is a highlight! The ribs were some of the best we've tasted. Great atmosphere, and a gorgeous location. Highly recommend!
Fun restaurant, great smoky flavours and great music playlist. Wait staff very pleasant but a little slow to take drinks orders during service considering it was a quieter day, loved that they were able to accomodate for food intolerances but didn’t provide much in the way of kids food (the adults loved the kids food) and we found it pretty difficult to share as the tables were crowded. Would definitely come back for the pulled pork and cocktails! Thank you.
Awesome food and atmosphere. Was a little confused w/ the menu and was hard to understand whether the food I was ordering was good for one person or 2. I asked the waiter and he said he’ll come back when we were ready to order lol...not very helpful. Overall the food came out great
The staff were fantastic accommodating our large group.
Food came out so quickly and was absolutely delicious. Would definitely recommend!
Basic chairs and tables; no cloths or anything (looked dirty)
Freezing Cold inside with air con
Food ok; plenty of it; but all tastes the same with the hickory seasoning ....
Can’t fault the food but just didn’t float our boat with the taste.
My table of three had a great meal at Fancy Hanks. Our experience will be different to yours as we were there for a 4;30pm pre-dinner sitting. The food isnt cheap but the quality is on the plate (especially vege dishes), so there is good value. I've rated as moderate for noise levels as it is likely to be very noisy when full. We had no noise issues at such an early session. Casual but interesting period interior. I'd go back and recommend to others as a $$$ place to go.
I visited Fancy Hank’s on a Monday evening and was surprised by how busy it was, but the service was good. Margaritas were not on the cocktail list, but it was made for me without a flinch. This restaurant is American BBQ with a twist. Everything on the menu has a little flare, eg burnt ends served on goats cheese purée. I love BBQ and everything we ordered, twist and all, was fabulous. Will be back again soon.
Good is always very good here but the portion size vs $ is pretty average. The selection of beer is very good and always pairs well with the food.
Perhaps due to the glass front which provides great views of what is a busy, interesting street; the noise levels are always high; even on a quiet night, not great for a business meeting.
Love going here but there are other cheaper options in Melbourne.
Just didn’t like the food to much the ribs were very average! And the flavours just didn’t work together
Upon entering the restaurant the service was amazing. Our server was attentive and helpful. The food was also amazing, we got the ribs, lamb and chicken, with everything being tasty and juicy. Would go back! Highly recommend!
Service was really slack - it felt like they forgot we were even there and we continually needed to flag someone down. The person who started serving us near the start of the evening disappeared half way though dinner. Very disappointing service.
The menu on the other hand is amazing with so many wonder choices, and quite reasonably priced too - we wanted to order everything! The brisket is tender and flavourful, as is the broccoli. The slaw is fresh and light - perfect combination with the rich sweet sticky bbq sauce. The corn ribs were finger licking good.
Unfortunately the ribs were tough - beautiful flavour, but too chewy. They needed a couple more hours to cook further in the smoker. When booking online we were prompted to “pre-order” the ribs as apparently “they are likely to sell out” - so we did , and we were really looking forward to them.
The Choc Tops were a perfect finish to the meal - they are just delicious.
We would definitely return as the food was good, but we’d just have to take a gamble on the service side of things.
Very good brisket and service was ok. But a bit strange to go to a bbq restaurant and not be able to order ribs....
Enjoyable and I will probably have another go next tine I’m in Melbourne.
We had a great experience as a group of ten. Delicious food, great variety of options, including veg. Friendly service. Will definitely be back.
It was quiet expensive and servings were small I have been to other similar restaurants but I was not to crash hot fancy Hanks
Amazing service and catered to my gluten (coeliac) and dairy free needs brilliantly. Amazing food. Would definitely return!
The food was great although the service was very slow. We made it clear that we needed to be out by 7:15pm and after arriving at 6pm our food did not get to the table until 7:05pm. Disappointing when we were assured that they would ensure that the food was served in a timely fashion.
Food was lovely especially the pork ribs, great customer service.
Great food, good looking place but it was quite loud so had to raise our voices over dinner like we were in a noisy club. Also the tables were quite tightly arranged, the people next to us also looked rather uncomfortable getting in and out. Minor changes and this restaurant would be 10/10!
If American BBQ is your thing, then Fancy Hanks is a great option in the CBD. It delivers exactly what is advertised. Great BBQ and a whole raft of southern & mid-western favourites. Go there hungry & prepare to pass out in a happy food coma afterwards.
DO NOT waste your time.
There were 6 of us out for dinner together. We had drinks in the roof top bar then came downstairs to eat in the restaurant.
There were 6 main meals in their menu. Only 2 of these meals were available to order as they had run out of meat. This was at 7pm on a Monday night. Would recommend nobody going there until they get their act together. Dined out every day while in Melbourne and unfortunately Fancy Hanks was the most memorable for all the WRONG reasons.
We were offered to order 2 plates of other rib types that were not on the menu. Which we accepted. They brought out all the dishes except the 2 plates of substitute ribs. When questioned where they were informed us that they had run out of those as well. We shook our heads and laughed.
Food was amazing. But we got there and we’re told that most of the main courses weren’t available. Then we were told that we couldn’t get the platters because the whole table didn’t want to get a platter. We were backed into a corner on what we could and could not order.
We eventually got some food, which to be fair, was really good.
