It had been a while since we'd visited Hogs Breath, but when we returned it was GREAT! The steaks were amazing, cooked to perfection and the cocktails were better than I remember! The service from the waitstaff was generally good depending on the waiter, but sometimes we had to go to the bar for a drink. Not a big deal!... More

A Father Son day resulted in having lunch at Hogs. Although I do contract work there for them, I've never eaten there before and when I left I had one happy 8 year old. The curly fries were a hit with him and when I said about his anaphylaxis to eggs and nuts the service was great. He ended up... More

I've been here twice in the last month, and hope to be back again soon. The staff are friendly and attentive, and have a fantastic knowledge of the menu. The blood orange cosmopolitan was amazing, and the two wraps I've had off the menu were both delicious. Love this place and one hundred per cent recommend it for an enjoyable... More

Went there for lunch today and had the best server today, her name was sprinkles and the food came out quickly and was just right. Would recommend to eat there. My son had his birthday there last year and it was fun. Food was great today.

Not my choice to go here, my husband said he wanted a steak so here we went. Hardly any people in the store except for a very noisy group of people at the back. The prime rib steak was out of stock so my husband had a different type of steak which he said was ok but not great. My... More

Nothing was too much trouble. The young lady who was in training as a waiter did exceptionally well and we hope she stays a long time. Her trainer was also great not to mention the best steak ever.
