Can't believe how good the food was here. Not a place you'd expect to have vegan and vegetarian options but the rage was fantastic. It was good to have small dishes for sharing so that you could try lots of things. Will come back again.

This is our 3rd time at Fancy Hanks but felt service and food was lacking slightly this time. The pulled pork croquettes, fries, corn bread and brisket were AMAZING but the ribs which we'd pre-ordered weren't as good as we were hoping. I wanted falling off the bone but they were a touch dry and chewy. Love the cherry cola as always. Drink service was super slow. Still a nice night out but prefer during the day when there is more staff.

Very disappointing, Fancy Hanks has gone from the best BBQ restaurant to the worst. I would never go back.
I would suggest they beg the old chef to return, reinstate the old menu and overhaul the table staff.

The quality of food is very good, that makes me come back to bring family and friends over. The serving size is also okay. The ambiance of old world style interior is calming, conducive for conversation among friends and family. The staffs are all friendly that make us diners feel welcome. The menu has ample choices to offer. Your price is just right . Keep up your good work and we look forward to visit your restaurant again. Thank you!

We paid AUD35 each for a banquet set menu. We expected to be served individually. Not in 2 platters for 9 people. It was disappointing to be served two pieces of Pumpkin toast to be shared between 9 people.
Overall the food was good.

Great service, though over priced for amount you get. Got 4 things thinking they’d be big serves from what menu said and paid a ridiculous amount for them to then be disappointing and small. Ended up needing to go get dessert elsewhere after because still hungry. Good service but unsure if I would go back!

All round on the money - although some dishes were a little overpriced for what was on the plate (brisket). Burnt ends were nice but mostly beetroot rather than beef.
Fave was the pork chop - recommended by our lovely server - and delicious.
Would return!

I will admit my bias straight up: I dig American Food and these girls and guys do it great. The fact that their lunch menu is some really well priced sandwich action just adds to my enjoyment.
Definitely one of the better lunch places in Melbourne!

Above average food for sure, style and flavor took me back to the States, the let down of the evening was the burnt ends; two small squares of meat and one of pure fat does not a 'burnt ends' make (especially not for $16), considering the slab of 14hr brisket was only $29 and 10 times the amount of meat. Mac & cheese was the bomb! Lamb ribs a little on the dryer side, though flavored wonderfully. Spiced pumpkin pudding small but delish!

Staff was so incredibly rude, our female waitress should work in a bazaar. She was so pushy rattling down the menu, asking several times if we want to order NOW? It wasn’t busy and we’re not the slowest, but please let your guests sit down and have a look at the menu. We’re going out to have a good time.

The food was super disappointing- compared to Blue Bonnet. Cold, tasteless, overpriced for the quality. My partner’s meat was 1/4 a big piece of fat crust.

We decided not to order dessert, which was offered to us in the same fast rattling, not understandable way. After we denied, one last push for “Coffee? ANYTHING? You can pay then.” Lucky us!

Our bill was wrong, when we pointed it out, that some items were charged double the male waiter seemed to be rather annoyed to have to make an effort.

Sorry, but we definitely are not coming back.

Our waiter was very rude the whole night, unfortunately. we were asking for recommendations and he basically just ignored us. We asked how many dishes we should get and it was just palmed off like well 'i dont know how much do you want, I dont know...why dont you decide how hungry you are'?? I Just think maybe pretending to have been in a good mood would have been nice.
He would make fun of certain peoples drink choices. I was really surprised.

Great food and service. The venue is also awesome and very American-bar themed. There is also a rooftop upstairs if you feel like having some drinks before or after dinner. The lamb ribs and biscuits need to be something you or someone on your table orders.

Very pleasant and courteous staff greeted us and made recommendations as to the amount and size of food to order. He was spot on with size. The only downside was the outside street light that shone straight into my eyes when I came on, perhaps some shading on the window would be good

Brisket was amazing, still thinking about it 2 days later! Standard fair of Mac n cheese and corn bread were great, the jalopeno cream cheese was beautiful. The pork ribs were a big let down, great flavour but we’re a bit tough and a touch dry. $50 for half a rack was a joke, if the rest wasn’t so good I would have made a fuss at bill time.
Service was exceptional, our food was out in under 15mins from ordering.
We will go back again in the future.
Thanks for a great night

My wife and I went to Fancy Hank's between halves of a two-part show at the Princess Theatre. The location is great if you are in the theatre district! Being form the US and having traveled extensively throughout the country, we know BBQ quite well. Fancy Hank's isn't really authentic American BBQ, but that is not meant as a criticism -- the food is excellent top to bottom.

First, the ribs: they were cooked perfectly, with a very nice sauce. The menu said it was an "Alabama BBG sauce" and that was part of it, but then there was a drizzle of something else that added another layer of flavor. So like I said, I wouldn't call it authentic, but more of a Melbourne twist and slightly more upscale version of the original.

Second, I would be remiss if I did not mention that AMAZING biscuits. You simply must order the black pepper biscuit with maple butter. These are the best biscuits I have ever had -- just the right crumb and crust on the outside, beautiful texture on the inside with a very nice maple butter that is just right int terms of sweetness.

Add in the good service and fine drinks, and this made for a perfect stop for us between shows. I would definitely put this on my pre-theatre stop next time I'm in Melbourne.

We were given a really bad table in the lower corner even though we had booked in advance. It was right next to the where the bartender kept banging plates after washing especially as the table was lower and the plates were ear level. Made the experience poor.

Solid barbecue food with interesting starters in a great venue. We came towards the end of the evening and a few of our dishes came to the table luke warm, when we pointed this out they happily replaced them with piping hot dishes and even took 20% off our bill for the inconvenience.

Out of the 8 people on our table, four of us traveled from Gippsland, and would do it again. We really enjoyed the food, the service was friendly, the room is full of nostalgia, the bar looked fabulous and though our table was on the outside it was still loud. That’s not enough to stop us coming back. We definitely will see you in the future. Thank you all round.

Service was poor, had to ask for drinks 3 plus times still had to wait for 20 minutes to get them. Brisket was poor two slices of thin beef and a bread bun and some red onions for $29. Waited a long time for food, no communication of times no apology for wait. Asked at the end if it was busy and they answered it was steady - so no real reason for little to no service and long waits. Tables either side of ours the same experience. No offer to fix anything so ensured that three full tables of people will not return again. Don’t waste your money, expensive and even removing the bad service the food is not worth the price
