Had a steak lunch, it was perfectly cooked to my liking, complete with veggies and hogs fries. Choice of regular for big eaters and lite for smaller portion. Steak was excellent so tender, service was good too. Our birthday companion got a free birthday treat of mud cake with ice cream and chocolate sauce, surprisingly mud cake was not sweet... More

The usual Hogs quality food. Steak is fantastic. Service and atmosphere is terrific. First time at this new venue (been a while between trips, lol) but plenty of room and look great.

Hogs breath cafe is not the greatest place for steak but the mix of meals and atmosphere makes it a place we always come back to. I do t have great expectations and I always leave with a full tummy and fairly happy with the meal and this time was no different. Kid friendly and a good family place

Have tried this restaurant on a couple of occasions, and was always disappointed with the quality of the food and service. Would not recommend for anything.

Could be a great place except for the lack of service. Great value lunch time special with a variety of choice. Huge general menu with a large variety to choose from. Very noisy. Poor service lets this place down. Any service we did get was mediocre and unfriendly. Although the meals were served in a timely manner. The wait staff... More

An overall disappointing experience at Hog's Breath in Surfer's Paradise. When my friend & I arrived, we were greeted by a friendly & engaging host. Was off to a great start. Only waited a few minutes before our waitress attended us. Where it started going down hill. First of all, our waitress did not appear to be enjoying herself &... More

The family went here on a trip to the Gold Coast. Some meals were fine while others had some issues. The staff were very friendly however and were attentive to two small children in the party.

An authentic Australian steak-house chain, offering great ribs, steaks and a lot more. Everyone needs to check out when visiting Australia, to experience the local Aussie cousine. If any improvement, I'd recommend the extention of their loyalty card program, to make the benefit valid for the entire table-company, not just the card holder, as it is a bit clumsy arrangement,...
