Great Staff - but ran out of popular menu item early

Recently visited Hogs Breath @ Terrigal. It was a busy time & was booked out however the friendly staff accommodated us after a short wait. The stairs into the restaurant are narrow, steep & a little dangerous & extreme care is needed when on them. The staff were excellent, however by 8:00pm... read more

Sausage meat burger in a steak restaurant...no garlic on the garlic bread makes it expensive night out for very shabby food

Hogs Breath ........ What can I say........ Great big steaks, burgers etc. Similar experience to dining in the USA. I had the seared salmon Caesar salad, really big and tasty ! Hogs breath has an extensive menu to suit all tastes and a bar serving a full range of beverages.

We waited for one hour to receive our appetisers, some rubbery Calamari and Chicken Wings..cold. We waited another 40 minutes for our Prime Rib to arrive, also cold. We... More

'Best steak' is the promise but the food here is very ordinary indeed and ludicrously overpriced. Will never eat at hogs breath again, i seem to recall it being much better years ago

I go here a lot because my kids love Hogs Breath. We all have different taste in food but we can all agree on having Hogs Breath. It's a safe choice but I still enjoy dining there with the family. It has a nice view of Terrigal Beach depending where you sit. You should enquire about kids eat free nights.... More
