Worth coming just for the steaks and price is very reasonable. Kids meals pretty average but have found this is the case at most places around here. Would come back again

When calling the waiter, no one response for such a long time.The the service is very bad, staff just took back and heat up by microwave again. And finger was in the bowl when bring... More

We had a family dinner here in December and would never, ever return. My husband had a steak meal which he said was nice, however all other meals were terrible. Hawaiian Chicken was ordinary. The kids had a kids pizza which was old Turkish bread, and tomato sauce, and we were 'allowed to add pineapple at no extra cost'. It... More

Food and service was great as expected but restaurant was not airconditioned and it was a very hot day. There were fans but we were seated away from them. We could have sat outside but it was too hot there too!

I tried this restaurant when I was in the Gold Coast. I decided to try their 18 hour slow cooked Prime Rib Steak. For steak that was slow cooked, it was full of gristle. The rest of the meal was very greasy. The staff was unfriendly and when my friend asked for a toothpick, he was told where to go... More

The Hog's Breath is , of course, part of a chain group. This DOES NOT DETER from their food and service. Now, from a food snob's perspective and point of view their menu leaves a lot to be desired. In saying so even food snobs occasionally fall from the wayside, and when I do. Its Hog's Breath.. There is nowhere... More

Dated, grotty and as my partner remarked "everything felt sticky", no air-conditioning, food over priced and tasteless, most of our dinner was microwaved and floppy. I wanted to take home the remainder of my salad and was given a box to do it myself. Hog' Breath Cafe you are in desperate need of a Gordon Ramsey style makeover.

Went there for lunch on a weekend, just before the crowd started to flow in. We got seated instantly. My steak was so tender and juicy. I enjoyed my plate a lot, except for the red cabbage. Their dessert menu looked inviting, but I didn't have enough room so that's for next time, for sure.
