Arrived about 5pm very hungry, hadn't eaten since breakfast and ordered a big juicy steak. Service was good and food arrived pretty quickly. The steak was of good size and very tender, the meal was served with curly chips and vegetables. Overall a great meat at a great price. Did go back 2 nights later with our team and they... More

Went right on opening time for lunch, so not at all busy. This was meant to be a treat for my daughter who was graduating from University later in the day, well a treat all right, a very bad one. We ordered, wait person was OK, not overly enthusiastic though. Just after she had left my husband decided he wanted... More

I ate here two nights in a row. We were so impressed with the meal, value and service on the first night, we decided not to look for anywhere else on the following night. The steak is to die for succulent and there was a very good dinner deal on.

Came here with my partner and step daughter and we had a lovely expereince. The value for the price of food compared to the price is great! Your food is massive and you often have some to take home for later. Great atmosphere, would defs be coming back here.

Went there for lunch with a friend, the waitress was 'nice' but bothered by us for some reason. She gave us all the menus except the lunch ones which was weird and made me purchase a $22 burger meal which tasted so bad, better burgers at Mac Donald's for less than half the price. The cocktail had no alcohol what... More

I first ate at a hogs breath probably 20 or so years ago back in Airley Beach australia and was instantly addicted to their slow cooked prime rib. I was a hogs breath card member for years and ate at nearly every restaurant in Australia (and one in Key West USA) I think I am qualified to speak for the... More

All you can eat ribs, yum. Being served by a well spoken and knowledgeable student was a pleasure as well.
