Child-friendly American style BBQ and Beer Hall, in the heart of Red Hill
Tucked away in a little side street off Arthurs Seat Road, you'll find the Red Gum BBQ; the Mornington Peninsula's American style BBQ and Beer Hall, in the heart of Red Hill.
Red Gum BBQ with Kids
The Red Gum BBQ is a huge industrial-esque open-plan warehouse style restaurant filled with huge wooden tables, large roller doors, heaters and plush blankets for winter, and a dedicated play area for children in the corner. It's hipster without being pretentious. Think craft beers in mason jars, and food served on mis-matched vintage crockery.
A meat-lovers delight, the Red Gum BBQ serves up slow smoke succulent meats and Southern sides & sauces. Such meats include:
Slow cooked beef brisket
Quarter or half Lillydale chicken
We ordered the Family Feasting Tray, which my family of carnivores devoured and who can blame them?
As a vegetarian myself I wasn't sure what I'd eat but was delighted by veggie options. I have to say that the Red Gum BBQ's mac n cheese is one of the best I've ever eaten, and the side slab of corn bread went down a treat!
Hmm.. mac n cheese
As mentioned prior, there's a range of craft beers on tap and local Peninsula wines should you feel like a brew or a glass of red/white when you choose to visit. Soft drinks are plentiful, my sons enjoyed their respective chocolate milk & hot chocolate with two (happy days) mashmallows.
If you could possibly fit anymore into your expanding waistlines afterwards, the traditional American brownie is utterly delicious.. although admittedly I did try that on another occasion.

We had the best meal at Red Gum BBQ. So much so, we're already planning when to go back again.
Get yourselves down to the Red Gum BBQ next time you're heading down to Red Hill on the Mornington Peninsula. Tell them we sent you!
