Mount Dandenong Hotel, Olinda VIC

The Mount Dandenong Hotel is a hotel located in Olinda, Victoria. They have a bar and great food and drink options. They also have a great dine-in restaurant - you may be able to download their menu on their website.
They have an average rating of 3.8 out of 474 reviews, with the latest ratings ranging from 1 to 5.
This place is really a step back in time, in a good way. A huge fireplace, the furniture, the floral carpet and the old bar feels really different after all the blond wood and glass treatment of modern pubs. The whole place feels well worn but well maintained and clean. The food is not outstanding or innovative but it's good honest cooking and that's fine. Prices are very reasonable too. A roast for under $25 with 5-6 generous pieces of lamb, veg and crisp roast potatoes, with lots of gravy and mint jelly is nice and great value. The bar is well stocked with about 8 beers and cider on tap. Service is really quick and friendly. Well worth a visit.

Don't need to talk about other description.

Mold tomato

We were last group of lunch time.
It means probably many people already ate it.
Hopefully. It was not you.

Last minute drop in for a cold drink and we decided to stay for lunch. Older style charm, beautiful food and generous servings. Staff were so warm and welcoming and up for a chat. Live music was a bonus. Highly recommend don't be deceived by the outside very charming atmosphere. We will definitely be back soon ?

Tonight we went for a meal,

The glasses we got were disgustingly dirty, the staff taking our orders were rude.
The garlic bread had enough oil to service a car.

The lady who got us a new drink was extremely friendly and the only reason I would have anything nice to say about this place.

The food was seeped in oil, and was not enjoyable. I have never had such a bad meal.

I'm so very disappointed, and will never recommend this place to anyone, save some money, and dissapointment and go to McDonald's

I love the atmosphere here, yes its older and a bit outdated but it's a classic. Our meals were delicious and the service was excellant.

Nice place, rustic cozy feel. Vege burger was alright and chips were great. $20 meal. Warm inside, place could use an upgrade and tlc

Woman behind the bar was a disgrace upon the very concept of hospitality. People like this do not belong in a pub or anywhere else involving public service or requiring even the smallest amount of charm. Bistro staff were lovely.

This place is spacious and can accommodate a pram. It has a fireplace, which makes it very warm and cozy. The staff was friendly.

All pretty average. Place needs a good renovation - just very dated.
Service is not great. Have to go up to the kitchen to order and separately to the bar to get drinks. Food came fairly quickly although it was incredibly quiet and kitchen closes super early at 8pm.
Quality of food was ok. Not cheap but not expensive. Reasonable amount of parking in a private car park - dirt surface and a bit lumpy.

Delicious meals and generous serving for what you pay.
The venue could use a bit of TLC, but if you're not fussy about your surroundings, then this is a place for your next meal.

We decided on a visit to The Dandenong's for Mothers Day and The Mount Dandenong Hotel was a perfect choice as it was out of the huddle and bustle of the main part of Olinda which was crazy busy. They had a special Mothers Day Menu for the day but many were from their usual menu found online. The food was fantastic, good old pub food, served by very friendly staff. They were run off their feet and the food was still great!
A rustic old world pub and atmosphere with an open fire some would say probably due for a reno, but we loved the old wall paper & decor it made it feel so cosy and was part of its charm. There's a big carpark next door to the hotel so no parking issues, and some more parking at the shops across the road. We will definitely be back when in the area again.

It was a lovely meal, the staff were super friendly.
Have never been here before, I have to admit it is a very old Hotel and it really could do with a face lift.
May I suggest that when having a group for lunch, not to have long tables together where people are sitting in the middle as there is not much room to get in and out.
Thank you for the lovely meal with tea and coffee available for our Hastings Seniors Citizen!

WOW just WOW! a hidden little gem! I highly recommend. Dad and I were impressed. The food here is just amazing. We followed the road for a lovely drive and it ended us up here. On a hot new years day(1.1.23), the place was open, welcoming and its just a lovely old fashioned pub, priceless!. Please don't change and thank you :) (dad said he'd crawl back just for the chips lol) So peaceful and tranquil surroundings and hearing beautiful Kookaburra's. Update 07.01 we were so impressed with our first visit we came a second time, just a beautiful peaceful place with great food (a special thanks to the restaurant staff, exceptional service xx) This will be a regular and recommend to family and friends

THE MOUNT DANDENONG HOTEL.....

My Cousin and I went to Lunch today at the Mount Dandenong Hotel & OMG I had a Naked Parma with Chip and topped with a peppercorn sause & my cousin had a Beautiful Chicken Parma with Chips & Salad which you can see in the many pictures looked amazingly Tasty...

The Dinning Room is very beautiful and extremely Cosy for all, There's a very warm and gorgeous Open Fireplace that managed to keep the whole place beautifully warm.

The Staff Server / Waitress today was Paris a young lady who was so very good at her job that I was ready to tip her. She was very inviting, Polite, Friendly, Courteous, & very efficient... The Chef was another young lady but extremely good at her job,

So thanks, Because Lunch was fantastic.....

Mark the Barman was great too, He was a wealth of information about the hotel informing me that the place was built in circa 1930's after I asked and mentioned to him about just how much Character the Hotel has.
If your interested in History and Old World Charm with Character & Style & Elegance then this is the Hotel for you & your Family and Friends....

It's open all the time for Lunches and Dinner it's got great daily Specials, It's all so got a Little person's Menu... How cool is that...

This would have to be one of the only places left that's a Licensed Venue without Pokies..

It's Family friendly thru the week and open to Pool competitions,
Sunday Nights Open Mike...
And lots lots more.
Checkout the photo's at just how beautiful this place is. It has more Character than Buckingham Palace with just as much Charm and Style...

You've really got to get you and your family & friends here for Lunch or Dinner.... It truely is a Cosy Beautiful Graceful Dinning Experience.

Really try it all... You'll Love it like we did....??'??

P.s. There's Plenty of Parking too.... Checkout some of the Photo's...

Also some Swap N Go Gas bottles too...

The service is as cold and unreceptive as the cobwebs that have been ignored to be dusted from the light fittings. A majority of the bar has been long abandoned with a hoarders array of estranged boxes and various knickknacks. I don't understand the lack of charm and inhabitence by management, you're better off seeking a warmer reception elsewhere.

Super cosy pub with good servings of food. very welcoming and friendly group of staff members at the bistro.

As for the sports bar, well I've been to a few sports bars but the smell of a beer soaked carpet was just very off putting felt like I was 18 again.

Food was lovely, service was great. However the dead rat on the floor in front of the arcade games left a bad impression on us. Especially when we alerted the staff and they seem nonchalant about it.

The Mt. Dandenong hotel was a great place to have dinner! Easy to order and the food was really great. The steak was cooked perfectly to how I wanted it and wasn't chewy at all.

A lovely pub on top of the "big hill".
Staff were fantastic. Atmosphere fantastic. Establishment is very clean and tidy!
The food that we orderd was excellent! The only disappointment was a mushroom gravy came out as a peppercorn gravy (that I can't eat). However, my hubby tried the peppercorn gravy and said it was absolutely delicious!

We will definitely be back :)

Good old country vibe pub!

Good feed with exceptional portions, will fill up the biggest of eaters.

A nice place to stop at whilst visiting the Dandenongs, sit in the front beer garden, enjoy the fresh air whilst enjoying a cold beer off the tap with a decent feed.

Plenty off the street parking available.

2nd visit and didn't disappoint with the expectations that come with a country-like pub!

TAB facilities.

Support local.
