“The Steel City is an old-time favourite in Sydney, being one of the oldest pubs in town. Steel city has your typical pub food, but what makes steel city so great is their Thursday specials. Every Thursday the Steel has a Greek dinner and/or corn beef and cabbage. The Greek dinner is one of my favorite outings, as me and my grandmother go every Thursday. Other favorites include: the steak sandwich. ”
