I like this place. For its price point it serves good solid food reasonably quickly. The outdoor patio is popular in summer although it can be noisy with traffic roaring up Cedar Hill Cross Road. The best value is the daily special and I think it's Pasta on Tuesday night - great value. None of the other meals is really expensive but the quality can vary a bit occasionally. Still, the service is friendly and they seem to treat everyone well.
Over the past few years I have tried a range of burgers, wraps, pastas and their breakfasts. The portions are way too big, so it works better (particularly value wise) if I split the meal with someone and the staff are happy to do this. They have a small range of beers including a few on tap - but it's more of a restaurant than a pub.
Parking is tight in their small lot and there is a sign warning you not to park in the lot across the road as you will be towed. Best to save the gas money and walk there if you can!
They have a Brunch menu with range of meals made with eggs etc. They do tend towards the greasy end of meals and way more fried potatoes than I can or should eat. The staff are very friendly but professional about what the do so although the food is not outstanding, I keep going there.
Named after it's address, 1550's has disputably the best wings in Victoria. I recommend going on Wing Wednesday when they are 40 cents each, or else you will end up paying $16 for a pound. The decor is a bit kitschy with plenty of vases and pottery lining the walls. Service can be a bit slow when the place is packed with students, but the servers definitely try hard. With any great neighbourhood pub, there are good specials, like super cheap highballs on Tuesdays.
You know what to expect at 1550s. Standard bar food, standard service. Good neighbourhood spot, but nothing to write home about. If you order drinks, you may as well skip the pop and go straight for beer - it's just about the same price. I'd rate it as completely average.
Every time I go to 1515's I always leave happy, great wait staff, good food ( big portions) and awesome drinks! Love how big the menu is! Never had anything that wasn't great looking and tasting there, service is usually quick and the patio is great to sit on during a warm day.
