I had the steak with pork ribs. Food was very good, there was enough and the service could not be faulted.

The service was incredibly fast, our meal was served in less than 10 minutes after ordering. The wait staff were efficient and friendly. However, the meals were luke warm at best. The chips in particular were cold.

Great location, the best water views and fabulous staff. Family friendly well priced. The meal was average. Steak appeared seared and not grilled. Chicken salad fair. Not what we are use to from our experience at other hog's breaths.
