Arrived at 1.30 yesterday for lunch. We gave our orders for drinks and 4 slow-cooked prime ribs; their speciality. I am a Coeliac so asked about gluten in sauces and dressings. The waitress at first said they couldn't guarantee any of their steak sauces gluten-free as they aren't made in-house. Only the balsamic dressing was gluten-free. I decided to risk... More

The pepper sauce was probably the worst i have had. Both of the male and female toilets were dirty and we were... More

We were seated and it took the staff 25 minutes to come back for our drinks/food order and then another 15 minutes to deliver our drinks. It wasn't busy and it seemed like there was sufficient staff on. I'm... More

Kitchen very slow - 1 hr for meals. Barely civil fella on till. Till errors. Poor... More

Ordered a lite steak salad and chips and my son a kids steak and chips, omg terrible $40 later for a basic salad and badly cooked steak, so... More

It was not my choice to go here for dinner, it was a young sons choice. On arrival we were greeted by friendly staff who were courteous and efficient and very friendly. Drinks orders were taken quickly and arrived promptly. Meal orders were taken and all was good, then this is where it came unstuck!! 5 meals were ordered 1... More

Ok so most of us have eaten at a Hogs Breathe somewhere. I have to admit with a large variety of places to eat in Hobart I picked here because I know what they serve and what I like. I have also say that the staff were very helpful and even the cook came out and spoke to my wife... More
