Went to Hogs on a busy Friday night. The staff member that served us was lovely but thats where the good stuff ends. Wanted to order there special slow cooked steak but the slow cooker wasn't working but we could still order it to our liking. It was supposed to be 300g, looked more like 200g and mine was quite...

We visited here last night for dinner and were welcomed by very friendly staff, with very quick service and the food was really good. What really impressed us was the manager who we didn't get his name, came around to our table to make sure we were happy with everything and also chatted to us when we left. Very professional...

Had to wait ages to be seated despite the restaurant half empty, plenty of staff standing around but I guess they didn't feel it was there job to seat us. Once seated a nice waitress told us about the specials, answered our questions and took our drink orders, we never saw her again. Only 1 drink arrived and after waiting... More

We have been here many times. It is basically pub food but it doesn't pretend to be anything else. It is good honest food and should suit most people. Just wish they would have more room with the seating as I am a tall bloke and it is very crammed. Always a good place for a quick meal.

Hog's Breath is a good place to come for a family meal on the ocean that has a good variety. It is standard fare at a fair price which is rare at resort areas. Don't expect fine dining, just a solid meal.

We had lunch sitting outside which was great as the view was lovely. I had the barramundi which was okay. The sweet potato wedges were great however the salad was limp. My partner had the ribs which he enjoyed however he shared my view regarding the salad. Our first waitress was lovely and attentive however she had to leave and... More

Large menu on offer, food was well cooked and prompt. Servers were polite and friendly, especially when we asked to move inside as the weather had changed! Will return if in the area. Offers great views of the marina.
