Our family didn't book for dinner before going into town. Big mistake. Nowhere was available except for Hogs Breath. In fact only the balcony seats were full. The waitress apologized and said there'd be at least a 40 min wait as they were down 4 staff members! We thought we'd find something else but that was not to be. Long... More

Don't go there , was disgraceful , food was terrible , garlic bread just dripped of oil , steak was raw and burnt when I ordered medium and the cost charge is up there with a really nice restaurant , but doesn't come close . Will never ever go back . Disgusting .

The food was very poor. I left most of mine on the plate. We were offered a jug of water and didn't receive it. We weren't asked how the meals were so didn't bother to give our opinions. Have been to Hog's Breath in other towns and have found them much better than this one.

We love the way the steaks are cooked so tender. I generally have the chicken or the fish meal as I am not a huge lover of steak. My husband enjoyed the steak and my son enjoyed the ribbs. The staff friendly and helpful.

What a great spot with a view Staff was good and burger was fantastic Not much of a wait time but the garden view made up for it. Would go again but this is like our 5th time there.

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
