Great food, but high prices.

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.

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

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

Always enjoy my meal at the Hogs Breath and the slow cooked steaks are a hit. Fairly pricey for what it is, however the lunch menu is far more accessible.

Service was good even though restaurant was busy. Food was pretty good, cooked well but nothing special.

What else do you do the day after Christmas when the weather is lovely and the shops are closed?... you wander around down at the Bay and go somewhere for lunch. Today it was HB's. Sat out on the balcony with the sun streaming in people watching and scoffing. Finger food combo for me and a hamburger for hubby. TOO... More

Were looking for a nice restaurant for lunch and HB caught our eye. We were given a discount voucher on the tram so thought we would utilise it. The meal was very good, the service excellent & friendly & the voucher was accepted without any fuss. A good meal enjoyed by both of us.

Have been to several (not all I admit) Hogs Breath Cafes across Australia and we love this place! Staff are so friendly and welcoming, food is also top notch and the view from the balcony is always entertaining.

What a disappointment bought 2x$30 steak meals and the meals were cold, how is an 18 hour slow cooked steak cold? All vegetables still raw and cold and the sauces cold, congealed and disgusting. When complained they gave us a minor discount but no offer of a warm well cooked meal. Worst steak I have ever had - we will... More

Very friendly & welcoming staff. Superb location on Jetty road. View from the balcony was great and the food was excellent. I would recommend Hogs Breath cafe in Glenelg.
