Usually not that bad.

I have come here a number of times although my last visit was very disappointing. We waited almost an hour for food which came out cold, the curly fries were luke warm at best. The staff member was friendly although doesn't really make up for waiting such a long time in between the entree and... read more

Wow, I've been to a couple of different Hog's Breath restaurants, but this was the first time to the Wantirna/Knox premise, and I've got to say It's the best I've been to, ever! It was a Friday night, and so it was busy and there was a little wait. The staff were very accomodating though, and we waited in the... More

I go here often with friends, the food is what you expect, doesn't blow you away, still nice, service is good, a strong point for them. Menu is over priced I believe, you can end up paying $40-50 on a steak, which is a very average steak may I add.

Have been quite a number of times. They do a good steak, though very over-priced. Love their curly fries of course, seasoned well and perfect crunch. It's usually quite a long wait tho. Staff are pretty friendly

I am now convinced that there are no better steaks in the world than Hog's Breath Cafes - now a frequent visitor we have also attended a few of their cafes ranging from Surfers Paradise to Tamworth to Wagga Wagga to Wantirna (Melbourne)...no complaints whatsoever.Looking foirward to our next visit.

I have come here on numerous occasions since 2009 and can say that this particular Hog's Breath has never failed me through their service or food. The service is always fun, quirky and helpful and the food is always great (especially the ribs). It is not by any means fancy, but it is delicious and has a great atmosphere.

They were delicious!! The staff here were also very nice and helpful. I enjoyed the music they played in the background and the way the... More

My first experience and my most recent experience at my local Hogs Breath (a few years apart) were practically identical. Amazing. Every time I've gone, we've been served by a smiling friendly staff member, and eaten delicious food. Obviously they specialise in their 18 hour slow cooked steak, and for good reason. It has a perfect fat content, and is... More
