we were lucky to have a nice day to site on the balcony with a nice view of the jetty, beach and passer bys. The staff were friendly and assisted us quickly. the food was good and the surprise birthday cake was lovely. The massive ice cream dessert was shared by the girls and certainly drew some looks from the... More

One of the many eating places along Jetty Road in Glenelg but we plumped for this one so that we could eat on the first floor balcony! As it turns out the steak was excellent. Not pretentious and the staff were very helpful.

Dinner tonight at Hogs Breath. Always great food at reasonable pricing. Started with the chicken tenders and moved on to the lamb rid and steak combo washed down with a beer. Both were cooked to perfection. Will be back

We walked in off the street on the Tour Down Under Street party night, the staff were very friendly and found us a table for 4 with little problem. Food was good, however, they could always serve more fries and the Sweet Potato wedges were a little under cooked. Apart from that it was pretty good.

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.
