Ball & Chain Grill

Restaurant and Cafe

Situated in the heart of historic Salamanca Place, the Ball and Chain is a popular, modern eating house, specialising in steaks, local seafood and game dishes, all cooked on an authentic charcoal grill. Our fine cuisine, casual atmosphere and reputation for excellence appeal to both locals and tourists alike.
Our first responsibility daily is to prepare the grill. Using only charcoal (no gas or electricity) we monitor the flame and temperature to make sure there is a glowing, toasty chargrill ready to cook your choice to perfection. The results are unique flavour, beautiful texture and an eating experience exclusive to the Ball & Chain Grill.
Steaks are our specialty – we carefully choose and age our own meat mostly from local farms and suppliers. But that’s not all we do. Our fresh market seafood docks daily two minutes from our door, our poultry is free range to ensure quality and our vegetables are delivered to us from all corners of the state – Scottsdale to Dover and everywhere in between.
We know our suppliers by name, we know where they farm, fish and make and we put complete faith in the quality they deliver.
