Great good and service. Upon arrival on a busy Saturday night, Martin was polite, friendly and informative. Found us a table quickly after our arrival without making a reservation first. Food was beautiful my steak was tender and juicy! Wait staff were efficient and tentative with out harassing us! Will be back!

We really enjoyed the food at hogs breath and the service was pretty good, but it's upstairs with little or no air con and on a 38 degree day, we left red faced and cranky! Would be fine on a cooler day.

Really nice place...great food and excellent ambience. One negative though...12 noon is "cut off" time....breakfast can ONLY be ordered before noon and the lunch menu ONLY after noon.....give us a break chef....make It more flexible....love an all day breakfast! Particularly on holiday after a lazy sleep in!

This is just another chain with uncaring "cooks" and it shows in the results. My steak was full of sinew and just plain chewy. This for a steak that has been slow cooked for 24 hours? There is much better in Glenelg.

Saturday night around 20:30 wasn't expecting super speedy delivery but had to wait too long. T bone was overcooked, had to chase a waitress around to get condiments. Not expensive, but frankly, just as well.

One of the most expensive places i eat at so is only really for special occasions/treat, menu unfortunately doesnt suit my 4 year old but there are kids options. we love the character and charm...

A little too much fat on the meat. Have been here many times over the years. It is hard to see how you could get fat on something that has been cooked for 24 hrs.
