“Far too noisy.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014 via mobile

The food was pleasant, the drinks cold & the service friendly but I couldn't have a conversation with my dining companion due to the horrendous noise! I don't know if it's just poor acoustics or if it was just an especially rowdy crowd but it was impossible to enjoy the meal! We ended up skipping dessert in favour of having ice cream on the beach due to the noise!

“Terrible place to eat”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2013

I've been there twice, the first time the waitress spilt my drink all over the table and food was stone cold.
The second time, the waiter treated me like we were "old" friends. the service was very slow. This was early in the night and was only one other group there. AGAIN THE FOOD WAS COLD.
Not happy, Jan.
I won't be back

Although the restaurant was very busy we were served promptly and the food was good and hot. The wait staff were friendly and attentive.

“You Know what to expect and it delivers”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

One Hog's Breath is pretty well the same as another, my only bad experience at a HB was at Castle Towers I am a regular at St Marys and Northmead in NSW and usually visit the Forster HB at least once when I am in town for a few days or more.
