Our kids LOVE going to Hogs Breath. It's always a family favourite and we always go away happy. The steaks were amazing and the atmosphere was great. We sat on the balcony, which was awesome. The only fault I have is that staff were a bit slow, but it was busy.

One thing that can be said for the Hog's Breath Cafe is that nothing much changes. When they first opened they set the decor in a style that indicated that alluded to a bygone another era, today they certainly do fulfil that style for the furniture has worn to the point where the table tops have acquired that sticky feel...

Went for lunch with my partner while on holiday in Airlie. I think highly of my local Hog's so had high expectations for this one. It didn't disappoint. We both had new meals and they were great. We had a bit of a wait for our food, but it was definitely worth it. I had a cocktail which was also... More

The origin or hogs breath in Australia, the flagship store. View of the lagoon from the rear deck. Nice collection of memorabilia and brick'a'brack, an eclectic look/feel. While perhaps the standards are not as high as when first opened, you can still expect a good feed. Service can vary depending on staff levels and at peak times, the rustic benches... More

I was very excited in visiting the famous steak house in Australia. But was a very dispointed experience. I expected for more than half an hour to order my meal. The house wasn't so crowded, but the attendant simply forgot we were there sitting on a table, waiting to order. I dont think I'll be back, unfortunately.

Hogs Breath has an excellent location in the main street of Airlie Beach it also overlooks the swimming lagoon. The staff are very friendly and the food predictable.

Airlie Beach is where Hog's Breath cafe started and we can see why it became so popular. Nicest steak we've ever tasted - and we've had some good ones :)
