Well the place was packed when we arrived and were sent to the bar for a drink. It was very noisy with patrons loudly talking over one another... When we were introduced to our server, I thought this was a very good start. Unfortunately, we were barely able to be heard by the waitress & each other as we sat... More

We went there for their prime rib, but they were out. We had the grilled natural rib steak, and it was pretty good. Our wait person was very pleasant and was prompt.

Stake was very good and price was reasonable. Also servers were very nice and with happy energy. This place made happy memories to us. I would visit twice if I didnt visit here at the last day of my trip.

Was greeted by a friendly staff member who took us to a booth. We had an okay lunch here, my hamburger was a bit cold but nevertheless tasty. My partner had the chicken parmigiana, it was a bit dry. Portions are big and the menu too. Service was probably the best part of the visit to be honest Attentive staff... More

Service was prompt as it is at every Hogs breath I have been to. There was a language barrier however with the Asian waitress, we asked for raspberry lemonade for the kids, only to be told that this would incur and extra cost. so we asked for normal lemonade, then were told they had pink lemonade. kids had colouring sheets...

Restaurant caters well for families. Kids menu had options to suit all. Lunch specials $10 to $13 and steaks in the upper range of cost. Staff attentive. Music background loud but probably needed with lots of kids at usual level of noise. Wouldn't recommend for a romantic couples or similarly quiet dinner.

The usual good food and good service as expected from Hoggs was again evident this evening. A golden opportunity for that extra feel good experience was missed. When I rang up to book the lady asked was there a special occasion in which I replied yes my wife and I are celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary today and she replied... More

The food was great, staff friendly and good service. It gets a big loud in here, so conversation can be a bit hard to hear, but it's a great atmosphere. Prices are reasonable.

Torn between 2 & 3 stars. The positives were the venue was nice, lychee mocktail yummy, staff very friendly and attentive & kids eat free a good deal (monday night). But, the steak was very very average. As someone else has written in their review they use poor cuts of steak which are fatty and don't look anything like the... More

Always great food and friendly staff, awesome cocktails! Only thing I would say that we ordered for two people and only received one main so upon asking the waitress she seemed to have forgotten the main! Oops not a deal breaker mistakes happen we waited a further 5 mins and got the most beautiful salad and it was very tasty... More
