Power up to the Tower
One of many inner Melbourne suburban hotels that have been around for decades.

The sign on Burwood road.

Apart from a large bistro eating area, it offers a small semi private dining room, a small drive-through bottle shop, an indoor and outdoor drinking area, a TAB and numerous poker machines.

There is always a specials board with tempting suggestions.

I have been eating there once a month for several years with a group prior to attending a nearby meeting.

Group at table
Our group of dedicated diners.

I usually order a seniors meal which is sufficient for my ageing appetite. I have never had a bad meal. Our group can be as many as fifteen and I can't recall any complaints about the food. The non-seniors meals appear to be of generous proportions and eagerly consumed.

Fish & chips
Fish & chips is a popular meal.

My only negativity about the establishment is occasionally bad service. Things such as meals not arriving in order of ordering.

The bar and food ordering section.

I have given up ordering desert as often it required one or two reminders about the order before it arrived. Same with coffee if ordered with the desert.

Our group always outnumber other patrons, but we do eat at 6.00pm on a Wednesday evening.

The spacious bistro area.

I would recommend the Tower for a good dinner, rather than for a night out.
