Although the menu could do with some work, overall not too bad. New staff but not enough, however they managed and feed our table of six. Having to order at the counter slows the whole process as customers ordering and customer wanting to pay fight for the cash registrar. New chefs produced timely food, large scallops wrapped in bacon, rock oysters, cheesy pizza bread for entrees and mains of scotch, burger, ribs and a enormous warm lamb salad. Would like to see a new menu and new items as I dine here a couple of times a fortnight every four months.

Best ever nachos says The Social Secretary.
A lunch time visit to Wild Hogs had us enthusing over the location, service & most importantly the food.
I had the mussel fritters & I would have no hesitation in recommending. Big, tender, moist juicy chunks of mussel. Great value at $15.
My wife raved over the nachos. A little more expensive at $18.50 but good value as there was a decent serving of very tasty chilli con carne over the corn chips & a good spoonful of sour cream.
The only grizzle was I thought $8.20 for a Macs Gold beer was a little expensive.

Enjoyed an evening meal here on our last night in Whitianga (Anzac Day). Food was served quickly and by friendly staff. Meals more than adequate - we enjoyed some of a cobb loaf to start following by mains - fish and steak. Certainly would return here.
