As a frequent diner of Hogs Breath Cafe all over Australia but being from North Queensland Airlie Beach is the most frequented. Normally myself and my friends a generally really happy with everything. However the last couple of times it has not been the best experience. Firstly on our last visit we were told it would be a 30 minute wait when there were clearly tables available. Secondly when we were finally seated it took 20 minutes to get our drinks and they forgot the jug of water for the table that we requested 3 times. The server was friendly but when we asked for the jug of water there was a bit of attitude from the server. Thirdly the meals took over an hour to get our food served to us (it took so long i had to go and put more money on my parking meter that i already had paid for 2hours for). When the food did arrive I had to ask if the whole table could get knives and forks the serve looked at me like i was and idiot she look at the table and realized that i was right and we did not have any. (People don't ask for knives and forks if there is already knives and forks on the table). If that wasn't bad enough when we went to pay for our meals we were told that we could not SPLIT the bill. This was the first time in history that we have been told that we could not split our bill. 2 weeks early with 8 people we were all able to split the bill. We were never told by our server that bills could not be split (I really do find a bit ridiculous that restaurants refuse to let patrons pay for their individual meals and drinks). And finally after paying to whole bill we discovered that they charged us for and extra drink but they fixed this by refunding the $7.50 for the drink. Come on Hogs Breath Airlie pick up your act your better than this.
