    Another great meal here. Food is still the best bbq I have had outside the USA. Only disappointment from the night was the bar upstairs was closed so still have not had the chance to go in there.

    We had a lovely experience. Food was beautiful. We did the $65 per person for 9 people and went home with doggybags for leftovers. Food, service and environment are great. For you carnivores, well and truly worth it. Plus the cocktails...

    Disappointed I didn’t read small print about dinner service only being platters. Got 500gm of three different meats but brisket seemed like only 6 slices? Just wasn’t expecting to pay that much.

    What an awesome place to wine & dine! Outstanding service! We felt like the only customers there, they couldnt do more for us. The atmosphere in the laneway was beautiful, sitting under the lights, just gorgeous. The food was so delicious and so much to choose from. Cant wait to go back to Proof!

    Pretty bang average, not one to write a review but was pretty tough handing the credit card over to pay $140 for dry cold ribs, soggy slaw, flavourless beef brisket & two pieces of fried chicken for $20… Service was unreal, friendly bubbly faces.

    Beef brisket really is the winning meal here. When we return we will just stick to the beef, potato skins and fries combo. I have also had the lunch time chicken and the beef burgers .. delicious! We are massive Toowoomba diners and would rate Proof in the top two for steak / meat lover experience. Staff very attentive and made me a chilli margarita that was not on the menu which was fab. The only thing i would add to menu is a pan jus' side sauce, selection of mustard sauces and perhaps a coleslaw side (rather than the whole salad as a meal). See you next week Proof ;)

    Recommended by a friend as a venue for my daughters 18th family dinner as she was in Toowoomba for the week. Really good food and great service staff. Would be worth the drive from Brisbane for regulars at their previous venue. We will go back next time we are in Toowoomba.

    We had a fabulous evening here. Great food, the shared platter experience is wonderful and such choices. Better potato skins than Sizzler - amazing. And with 5 mates, we paid $20 each, so great value for money. Can't wait to return.
