We enjoyed our meals at the Hogs Breath cafe, service was good, but was nearly driving mad by the loud crappy music, can't really chat to anyone because of this, I wouldn't go again because of the noise.

For somewhere that I wouldn't say is great, I can't stop going back. This is a great family restaurant, and fairly consistence, but not somewhere I would recommend for a great feed. Not horrible, not memorable, not impressive either!

The atmosphere is ok: nice interior, friendly staff, catering to families from 4 to over 80. But what they did to the steaks.....? "Slow cooked for 18 hours" it said on the menu. Well it didn't add the taste. Too bad.

I was part of a group that chose to eat here and was pleasantly surprised to find some vegetarian options of the menu. Service was efficient and friendly. Food was great.

Great food, always consistent. Kids really enjoy this restaurant as there are heaps of things on the wall for them to look at. They also enjoy the colouring in. The large desserts are great to share. The steak is always cooked perfectly.

Asked for my T-Bone Extra well done, specifically asking for the chef to be informed I wanted a thick layer of charcoal on it. Got back a dry (well done) steak, that wasn't nearly extra well done.

We first discovered Hog's Breath while on holidays in NSW. Since then we have frequented our local Hog's Breath at Knox City shopping center. The lunch time specials are fantastic and very satisfying. Their steaks are among the best I have had. The staff has always been exceptionally friendly and make the whole experience more than worthy of the modest... More
