My bride suggested Hogs Breath due to memories of good steak and a decent serve of veggies, and she was delighted to enjoy their sweet potato wedges this time too. We both had the "lite" version of the fillet steaks, hers with calamari, mine with pork ribs basted in spicy BBQ sauce- simply delicious! They even provide a compressed towel... More

Good meals. Not the best steak around but still good and good value. If you love Hog's Breath then this is the only one in SA worth going to.

We arrived here following a strange route because we did not know the city venue was closed. This Glenelg Venue is up reasonably steep stairs. There is a stair climber but it was very dirty. The entrance is quite dark and dingy looking. It really does need to be spruced up. Upstairs there is a main dining room and a... More

We have come here many times, loving the tender steaks and hog tail fries! This time we tried the garlic "cream" sauce. This sauce was made from a rou and was not crazy or taste of garlic. The staff were great and arranged for different sauces. They also have new side salads which was nice. Prices have gone up and... More

Took a while to get our food. For those that order a main, ordered a steak with baked potato with everything and the salad. I'd recommend you send the salad out first and not on the plate with dinner. I ordered the Caesar salad and the dressing tasted like honey mustard. Great big flakes of parmesan which was the best...

For a steak house not to have steaks - it showed a lack of preparation and care. Overpriced and disappointing.... Not at the same standard of other Hoggs Breaths we've been to...

Used to go to Hog's breath all the time with the family so am quite partial to a meal there. Weren't disappointed at all. We ordered the loaded skins which had a wonderful honey sweet chilli sauce. We had the chicken, bacon and brie and the chicken parmigiana. They were both lovely! Nice breast chicken and not dry at all.... More

Love the new menu. Lots of choice for vegetarians now too so a great place for everyone. Went there with family and there was something for everyone. Service was good a few little hiccups however quickly rectified by management. Casual atmosphere and great selection of food.

Thank Caz M
