“Pretty Average.”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

I guess they (hogs breath) cafes are the same everywhere but have to say the steak was pretty crap. You don't have to be a butcher it's easy to tell that the big size steak is the good cut and the smaller size steak they sell is the cruddy flappy cut that is attached to the big cut before they slice it off and call it small! The childrens pasta wasnt cooked properly (still hard) with a yucky sauce (tasted as though it was straight from the jar of tomato pasta sauce) while I was trying to cut through my nasty steak one of the waiters spilt an entire glass of lemonade down a womans back! Overall it sucked bad. Yeah didn't like it..

“Shocking service & food very average - won't ever return”
Reviewed January 3, 2012

My partner & I tried here for a change and it was possibly the worst meal we have ever had in Airlie Beach.
The service was shocking we obviously got forgotten and our order got misplaced as everyone else who was there after us got there food delivered first then when ours finally came out it was wrong so had to go back to the kitchen. We waited around 35 minutes to get out starter & when we arrived there was only 1 other table f 6 but quicklyl another 5 tables came after us.
The girl that sat us down was obviously new & shy as she made no eye contact at all and whispered about the food.
When the mains came the steak was the driest piece of steak I've seen & my partner being a steak lover was shocked and dissapointed as it was cooked incorrectly.
They need to revamp the place and train staff to care for the tables more as this was a place we would never return to again. To add the cherry on the cake the bill was massive for 2 people.

“Pretty Poor”
Reviewed January 1, 2012

Not much to write about, just the overall experience was terrible. No wonder Australian business is suffering and people are holidaying outside the country. Wake up people and look after your customers!!!!!.....

“Great restaurant layout”
Reviewed December 11, 2011

Delicious food, quick service, nice layout of restaurant, alot of the other stores have you just about sitting on top of each other, over hearing other's conversations but this one is very well done.
