Terrific atmosphere and a lovely meal. Gorgeous little menu for dogs which can be seated outside - my kids would have loved a steak option on the kids menu though. Great location, really easy to get to from our Braddon Hotel, and easy QR code driven menu ordered from the table. See less

Best pub meal I’ve had in a long time. Had the Burger and the salad was so fresh and so was the rolls. My partner salad was amazing as well. Great atmosphere. See less

Ordered 6 oysters at $18, they came out the size of a 5 cent piece, over cooked, sauce evaporated and bacon like cardboard. Told the waiter, however no response apart from him saying he'll let the chef know...those oysters should not have been serverd. See less

Last time I was at the Civic was 40yrs ago. My sister said why did I want to go to that dive! I said it's been done up sis! Enjoyed the food, the beer, the staff was great. All good value, no diving there!!!! Cheers! See less

Great pub in the middle of Canberra with an dining area loud with parrots 🦜. Fun atmosphere, great service, great food and I loved my steak 🥩. We had a large group and you order from an online menu but the servers don’t get a name so it takes a while to figure out who gets the plates that come out. Better than all the other pubs we visited in Canberra. See less

Great atmosphere, great service and an outstanding meal. Steaks were SENSATIONAL! Those that had the chicken loved it also. I wish I had two more hands; I would give it four thumbs up. See less

If you're not paying attention, you might miss it. I'll get stuck right in. Walking past a few times on the opposite side of the road, the large Carlton Draught sign gave me an impression of yet another generic pub. But that's certainly not the case. Facilities, cleanliness and maintenance: inside you'll find something more akin to a whisky bar than a pub. Beautiful walnut stained furniture, leather seats, book cases all dotted with pot plants. All bathed in a warm yellow glow from soft lighting. This is a lovely, calming place to sit. Outside, in the afternoon you'll have the sunlight filtered through the canopy of a large tree (perhaps a maple). Again with lots of pot plants and even cute wheelbarrows containing colourful flowers. Outside is very pleasant, and I was drawn there given the nice weather. Product and accuracy: At the bar you'll find a good variety of beers (sure, I didn't get on the grape juice tonight). I set myself up with a 4 Pines, or a few actually. It was poured well, presented well and was deliciously cold. I ordered the 300g Sirloin steak and the high praise comes in the form of me muttering to myself "this steak is wonderful". Cooked exactly as ordered to MR with a delicious grid char on the surface for that seared flavour, the cut was wonderful with good, even marbling. The mash was light and creamy and even the veg had great crunch to it. No one wants soggy brocolli. Staff, speed of service and hospitality: the staff were very polite, approachable and were keeping the venue well tended and clean. The steak took an appropriate amout of time, which I assume they rested it (thank you). Overall, I honestly don't have any flaws to strike on this review. Everything was at a high standard. I'd highly recommend this place to anyone who asked me for my opinion. See less

The original and still one of the best. Enjoy the outdoor eating and drinking experience, or play some pool at the back. Plenty of good food options. Overall it is a cracking atmosphere. Cheers! See less

Decent enough place with a few choices of beer on offer. Not alot in the way of craft beers but there are one or two. Reasonable food menu. There are pokies fairly well hidden and you'll find a pool hall out the back. The night we went in there was a comedy show happening upstairs in The Whisky Room. See less

I ordered a steak sandwich for dinner. The bread roll was so hard, I couldn't bite through it. I could've swapped my hammer for it. Hard as a rock. The steak was tough to chew and the salad was drowned in sauce. Not good enough for $20. See less

Civic pub besides being an institution in the Canberra nightlight has started to modernize (only a touch) without taking away the pub feel. They have added QR codes/ NFC pucks to the tables so you can order food and beverage from the table. I tested this on summernats weekend, and it was on par with me walking up to the bar and ordering a drink and returning. I would imagine much faster other times. See less

From the second the waitress asked us if our puppy would like a drink we knew this was the place for us. Food was amazing, service was even better could have seriously spent all day here. Could not recommend highly enough with or without your fur baby there’s something here for everyone to enjoy. They even made an Affogato that wasn’t even on the menu. See less

Excellent hotel pub and restaurant in Civic Canberra Better still they even served cook or raw steak with veg for your pet only $7 and it was huge for our little Bella. More outdoor pub venue takes note this is a brillant idea . Mickeyblu Australia See less

I have no idea how this venue can use the word ‘family’ in its description. I also don’t understand why it has a kids menu when they are so unwelcoming to kids. I went here for dinner on Friday to celebrate my birthday with my family and my two year old. We chose the 6pm sitting (so not late). I was told repeatedly by the indifferent, uncouth and teenage wait staff that my son had to sit down and couldn’t walk around. He’s two, for god’s sake. They couldn’t have been less family friendly. They were downright rude. NEVER AGAIN. I advise you all to stay away. See less
