Teenager's birthday with family.

I was the only one who'd been before so when I told everyone to go medium-well instead of well-done I was a little worried but I needn't have been concerned. The steaks were all tender and had no sign of blood they were all worried about. My chicken salad was HUGE. It was a bit noisy in there but... read more

OK but not fantastic. Steak was certainly tender but... so tasteless.The long marination takes the flavour away.

Out of most Hogs Breath cafes I find this one better than the city. Well priced and lovely staff. If its busy it does take a while to get your food out but that is expected. Always be back

Upstairs on the balcony looking over Jetty Rd is quite relaxing. We we talking business and was enough space around us for privacy. Plate size is large, meat is cooked suburb. Staff friendly and helpful. Close to the Grand and beach

After a long & tiring day I was undecided on a dinner choice in Glenelg & went for an old familiar with Hogs Breath. Being a chain, you always know what you're going to get & their steaks are always very tender & falvoursome. Good food, good sized servings & friendly, accommodating staff make them a simple choice.

This is clearly the most popular Brunch spot in Glenelg but I honestly don't know why. It's crowded, noisy and slow - and frankly, the food is pretty ordinary. The combination of loud voices trying to speak over the omni-present doof doof music is annoying at best. Add to this the slowest service I've experienced in a good while (coffee... More

Ordered cheesy garlic bread - it was either stale or heated twice because it was tough and didn't look fresh. Meals arrived - all servings is curly fries were cold & so was the steak on my burger. Waitress offered freshly cooked fries, which were good - but that's what we should have received first...disappointed. Prices are not cheap, and... More

Whether it be family visiting from overseas, birthdays or lunch out with friends, this place really does prove to be top-notch. Over the years I have visited Hogs Breath an enumerable amount of times all around Australia. They provide a consistent experience wherever you choose... More

Steak and Other food was cooked to perfection but this really is nothing more than a very special occasion place to eat with the astronomical prices - but despite that was a great feed with good staff and atmosphere.
