I have had much better steak at half the cost at my local pub. I ordered the blackened steak which had so much seasoning on it that my tongue has been weird for the last hour. Food was cold, felt like it had been sitting there for 10mins before we recieved it. Not worth the price tag. We left wishing... More

Good Atmosphere, Cocktails are great. Food was disappointing, fatty prime rib steak and extremely dry chicken. Staff were accommodating and we were compensated adequately.

Theres a standard to expect from hogs breathe and it didnt let us down. The only downside was how hot it was. As its open air we were all dripping in sweat. The staff werent that attentive and were slow with drinks. Something thats extremely important on a hot day. Overall it is what we expected of hogs breathe.

Dropped in after seeing 3-6pm every day bar snacks $5 and $4 tap beer. I was amazed. Great cold beer and the potato chunks with bacon and cheese damn awesome. Too much for me to finish. Will be back for a pre dinner and snack sometime soon. Thanks hoggies.

TL;DR Pros: Friendly service. Great serving sizes. Tasty entree. Deliciously tender steak with very little fat. Curly fries are fun. Too full to fit dessert. Cons: Main arrived while we were still eating entree. Caesar salad could use more lettuce. Long version My partner and I went to Hog's Breath on a Friday night. I've always wanted to go but... More

Had a nice night here, on balance. Minus: tables sticky, had to ask for them to be cleaned. Extremely noisy. Food took a long time to arrive (almost an hour on a Sunday night). Plus: very good value ($19.90 specials), food was lovely (barramundi, steak and prawns), view was nice, dessert (warm chocolate cake and ice cream) very very nice.... More
