Pleasing the palate won't be a problem at the Garden State Hotel, with a versatile range of food offerings available.
From a contemporary dining experience in the Garden Grill, to tried and true counter meals in the Public Bar, and a local adoration towards street food in the Kiosk with 10 minute toasties, light salads and hot dogs, we're here to feed your every need.

Garden Grill

From our Head Chef, Ashly Hicks.

“For me, food, is all about produce, ethos and technique. For a dish to be memorable, it has to highlight all three, so there’s a story behind every component of produce on our  menu. Our primary ethos revolves around sharing. Shared knowledge, shared stories, and most of all, shared dining.

It’s how we have designed this menu. I hope that you love the menu as much as I loved preparing it for you. Share and enjoy”

The Garden Grill is open for lunch and dinner Monday through Sunday. Reservations are advised.


Public Bar

If you’re after a wholesome and relaxed dining experience in the heart of the action, the public bar is the place for you. On the menu you will find all your favourite pub classics, including market fish and salad, a house burger and a quality parma as well as a broad selection of moreish snacks and shared items.  The Public Bar is a walk-in dining space only; wherever there’s a seat you can eat.



All hail Melbourne’s mighty fleet of food trucks and a culture with an adoration of street food. It is at the Kiosk that we celebrate their contribution to the Melbourne foodie scene. With a guaranteed wait of no more than 10 minutes, you will find a selection of flavour packed toasties and tasty bites of the day. 12pm and after a quick salad? 10pm and need melted cheese? You’re welcome Melbourne. 

Available dine in and takeaway.
