No surprises, the steaks are always very acceptable. Can be noisy and also very cold outside. Area is a bit of a wind tunnel. aim to eat inside.

I have mixed feelings about this restaurant. We ate in two of them, one in Cairns and the other in Main Beach. In Cairns we had a pretty good meal and pretty good service. In Main Beach we had a mediocre meal and poor service. First off, using the word steak as a description of their signature dish is misleading.... More

I love there new menu. It is affordable (especially after frequent diner discount) and satisfies the taste buds. The portions are generous and always leaves you wishing for more (if you had the room).

Service was good, food yummy - apart from carrots always seem to be very undercooked. We have mentioned it, but it never changes so just leave them. The rest of the food was tasty, hot and well presented.

It had been a while since we'd visited Hogs Breath, but when we returned it was GREAT! The steaks were amazing, cooked to perfection and the cocktails were better than I remember! The service from the waitstaff was generally good depending on the waiter, but sometimes we had to go to the bar for a drink. Not a big deal!... More

A Father Son day resulted in having lunch at Hogs. Although I do contract work there for them, I've never eaten there before and when I left I had one happy 8 year old. The curly fries were a hit with him and when I said about his anaphylaxis to eggs and nuts the service was great. He ended up... More

I've been here twice in the last month, and hope to be back again soon. The staff are friendly and attentive, and have a fantastic knowledge of the menu. The blood orange cosmopolitan was amazing, and the two wraps I've had off the menu were both delicious. Love this place and one hundred per cent recommend it for an enjoyable... More
