THE Grafton Steakhouse is to serve its first meals to the public today.

The 100-150 seat, licensed restaurant is the anchor tenant in the newly-opened Grafton Shoppingworld family dining precinct.

The restaurant is owned and operated by the same family company as the Aussie Steakhouse at the Australian Hotel in South Grafton.

Paul and Geraldine Jones have been in the hospitality industry for more than 25 years, having previously owned hotels in Sydney and Bellingen.

Mr Jones said the new restaurant would replicate the high standard of service and value already experienced at the award-winning Aussie Steakhouse, which had been recognized by the Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide for country areas.

"Grafton Steakhouse will be upmarket but reasonably priced," Mr Jones said.

"Our philosophy is to provide cooked meals from fresh ingredients with quick and friendly service, offering succulent grain-fed steaks, fresh local seafood, garden-fresh salads and ribs."

Other tenants in the dining precinct include Baskin Robbins and the Byron Bay Chilli company. ATM facilities have also been built into the complex.

The dining precinct was built by McConaghy Group, the owners and operators of Grafton Shoppingworld.

The precinct is on the corner of Fitzroy and Villiers Sts and is connected to the shopping centre by a pedestrian path.

It features multiple restaurants, each with a mix of indoor and outdoor seating, as well as restaurants offering takeaway options.
