Walking up the stairs to Hogs Breath you dread walking back down when you are absolutely full from food (haha)... when waiting for a table you are told to wait at the bar, with two tables (for waiting) the bar area starts to become congested blocking the way of waiters and waitresses aswell as incoming customers. The service was great.... More

Young bubbly waitresses do a great job in looking after you. Beer was good and while one of our meals was sensational, my steak was very disappointing. I think I would give them the benefit of the doubt because it is obvious they pride them selves on their steaks and maybe it was just a one off.

Randomly pop it this restaurant for a quick dinner meal. The decoration was interesting. Apparently it was empty at that moment and there was only 1 waitress on the floor. We ordered their 18 hours cook steak with some garlic bread to start off. The bread came within 5 minutes and was okay. It take her another 15' to come... More

Always a good feed and friendly staff to match. Reasonably priced and one of the best views in town. The steaks are always cooked as desired/asked for. The 'Hogs Breath' style veggies could always be improved upon... but all-in-all a good experience.

My partner and I venture up to Terrigal for a long weekend away a couple of times a year and we always have at least one dinner at Hog's Breath. It's been 6 months between visits and the quality of not only the food, but the waitresses has just dropped dramatically. This past weekend we visited, and not only was... More

Dined here on the last night of our family holiday and I'm glad we did. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was awesome. It's the only hogs breath we have been to that has actually served up a decent steak! We will definitely dine here again.

everything was stale, rubbery, fries were stuck together and the tables are much too small to eat from.

Decided to drop in for Friday Dinner. Staff were very quick to greet, seat and explain the menu. Chose to share the Antipasto plate for starter. This was very good with ample food for 2 people. Decided to go the Prime Rib steak with avocado. Main arrived before the starter was finished. ??? Steak was overcooked as we asked for... More

As I said the food was awesome,... More

Arrived for dinner without a reservation and were seated quickly. Shared entree of calamari. I had a lite (meaning smaller version) sirloin medium. Unfortunately my meal was cold. My family's meals were ok , steaks ribs and burgers. Disappointing given its a steak restaurant.

Thank Kerrie57
