Seventeen floors above the River Derwent, the Point Revolving Restaurant at Wrest Point radiates ‘special occasion.’ When the doors open and the view unfolds, you’ll understand why The Point has been a backdrop of memorable dining 40 years over.

About the restaurant
Longhorn smokehouse is new restaurant located within Wrest Point.

We’re taking a modern approach to the traditional flavours and ‘low and slow method’ of Southern American BBQ. Sink your teeth into the best grilled, smoked, and baked meats, sourced from the finest local producers. All against the stunning backdrop of the River Derwent.

In other words, it’s your classic American smokehouse, done the Tasmanian way.

Grab the night by the horns.

Our team live to grill and smoke Tasmania’s best meats to perfection. We have homemade rubs and a curated range of sauces to complement every dish. And you can pair it all with delicious beers, playful cocktails, and wines from around the globe. We pride ourselves on down-to-earth hospitality that makes you feel right at home. So, just bring your appetite and some good company. We’ll take care of the rest.

The atmosphere was fantastic for the theme of the restaurant. The food was amazing and the portions were a good size, my favourite was the smoked brisket burnt ends. The staff were really friendly and attentive. Will definitely be back in the future!
