Longhorn SaloonCarlton's Longhorn Saloon shut its doors following a string of complaints by residents living near the restaurant and an order by the City of Melbourne.
The Age reports that the smokehouse bar and restaurant, which has been open since 2015, received complaints from residents about the drifting smoke and grilled meat smell emitting from the venue. The City of Melbourne issued an improvement notice to Longhorn Saloon, stating that the smoke, food and cooking odours coming from the restaurant were 'offensive and constituted a nuisance'. Upset residents also complained about the excessive noise coming from the kitchen's extractor fans.
A recorded message said its now closed permanently (2017).

The freshness of the raw bar takes the edge off Longhorn's menu, which is overwhelmingly meat and carb-heavy. Six cuts of steak get cooked on a wood-fired grill out back. The largest, a T-bone, weighs in at a whopping 1200 grams. The other options are potatoes done six ways, pasta or salad.
Brilliant bartenders aside, service from the waiters is a bit hit and miss: our steak sauces never materialise and we're met with a frosty silence when we decline dessert. Then again, it really wouldn't surprise us if the word 'no' is virtually unheard of here - and over all, we say a resounding 'yes'.
Longhorn Saloon is situated above the 5 Points Deli at 118 Elgin St, Carlton - near the corner of Rathdowne St and Elgin St.
