We booked a table for a work lunch and pre-ordered our meals which I was assured would be ready on our arrival. Got there and they barely knew what table was ours. Meals came out 30mins later and that was them hurrying. There was more bun or roll than the fillings. Meal was dry and horrible. Soft drink was flat.... More

Went for a meal, not many patrons, told to wait a while before we could seated. Not a huge problem. Had some drinks at the bar. Went to check about seats a bit later only to be told kitchen is closed. While we were there we were in full of the few staff that were there. If they had of... More

I rarely leave negative reviews - but sometimes - it must be done. There are a number of restaurants in Airlie Beach so you won't go hungry - but pass this place by. We were seated quickly, then sat...finally a waiter came with menus. We ordered a drink and water (it was very hot) and this was delivered relatively quickly.... More

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

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.
