We were greeted and seated quickly, our kids were given colouring in sheets to keep them entertained. Our waitress was very quick to come to take our order - which was good because she sat with us and explained the dishes, she was very informative and friendly. The steaks were melt in your mouth yum and the side of caesar... More

We just had dinner at Hog's Breath to celebrate our son's birthday. He and my hubby enjoyed a steak, our 2 grandsons had pizza and nuggets and chips, our daughter in law a burger and I had a salad so there is something for everyone!

Well the place was packed when we arrived and were sent to the bar for a drink. It was very noisy with patrons loudly talking over one another... When we were introduced to our server, I thought this was a very good start. Unfortunately, we were barely able to be heard by the waitress & each other as we sat... More

We went there for their prime rib, but they were out. We had the grilled natural rib steak, and it was pretty good. Our wait person was very pleasant and was prompt.

Stake was very good and price was reasonable. Also servers were very nice and with happy energy. This place made happy memories to us. I would visit twice if I didnt visit here at the last day of my trip.

Was greeted by a friendly staff member who took us to a booth. We had an okay lunch here, my hamburger was a bit cold but nevertheless tasty. My partner had the chicken parmigiana, it was a bit dry. Portions are big and the menu too. Service was probably the best part of the visit to be honest Attentive staff... More

Service was prompt as it is at every Hogs breath I have been to. There was a language barrier however with the Asian waitress, we asked for raspberry lemonade for the kids, only to be told that this would incur and extra cost. so we asked for normal lemonade, then were told they had pink lemonade. kids had colouring sheets...

Restaurant caters well for families. Kids menu had options to suit all. Lunch specials $10 to $13 and steaks in the upper range of cost. Staff attentive. Music background loud but probably needed with lots of kids at usual level of noise. Wouldn't recommend for a romantic couples or similarly quiet dinner.

The usual good food and good service as expected from Hoggs was again evident this evening. A golden opportunity for that extra feel good experience was missed. When I rang up to book the lady asked was there a special occasion in which I replied yes my wife and I are celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary today and she replied... More
