I was told to go here for the best steak ever. Well, I don't eat steaks but if the steaks are good then surely other choices would be too? No. A friend ordered the large steak and it came out small, thin and tough and paid over $30. What a waste. Very disappointed person. Others ordered the chicken and were... More

We didnt have a reservation and were later arriving. They seated us quickly and orders taken. Food was typical Hogs Breath (tasty) and all our table was happy.

Quirky upstairs location. Good menu selection but limited choice of drinks (beers/wines). Relatively slow table service to order food and drinks but otherwise relatively efficient. Overall food acceptable quality but could be better for the price. Still worthy for a visit.

3/3 disgusting meals tonight! Firstly, cold ribs, so cold that rib fat had become white and coagulated!! Had been warned in microwave. Second, bacon in salad raw, big chunks of fat throughout. Thirdly, kids burger, cold with raw onion throughout. All inedible, terrible waste of money! Used to be reliable and one of our favourites.

Been coming to the Hogs for 10 years now as my daughters favourite restaurant but this time was the last. As others have reported the salad was drenched in dressing but the steak and ribs had either been warmed in the microwave or the hot plate was off. They were both cold. Makes you wonder if the food is all... More

Upstairs at the jetty end, the service is good, the fare good, & it was well-patronised on the evening we ate there. Go for the steak.

Very busy but very professional and the food was delicious. As good as the same franchise in Airlie Beach

As the title suggests, we were served average food, with slow service, there is not much room in this restaurant, which makes it kind of uncomfortable, but the drinks are very nice, as are the potato skins, I am personally not a fan of children friendly restaurants (I was taken here for a celebratory dinner) so this was not enjoyable...

The Hogs Breath Saloons are a franchise and some are bad and some great. The Glenelg is a great example of a great Hogs. It is one of the few early morning cafes for midweek Breakfast and is usually pretty full. We dropped in for breakfast and had the standard bacon and eggs with sourdough and home made tomato sauce.... More

My partner and I visited for dinner late on a Friday - we arrived after 9 so we weren't expecting to be served but they were happy to accommodate. Service was okay and we had to remind them about our entrees and drinks. Otherwise the food was really really good!

Thank Carly Z
