Very busy but very professional and the food was delicious. As good as the same franchise in Airlie Beach

As the title suggests, we were served average food, with slow service, there is not much room in this restaurant, which makes it kind of uncomfortable, but the drinks are very nice, as are the potato skins, I am personally not a fan of children friendly restaurants (I was taken here for a celebratory dinner) so this was not enjoyable...

The Hogs Breath Saloons are a franchise and some are bad and some great. The Glenelg is a great example of a great Hogs. It is one of the few early morning cafes for midweek Breakfast and is usually pretty full. We dropped in for breakfast and had the standard bacon and eggs with sourdough and home made tomato sauce.... More

My partner and I visited for dinner late on a Friday - we arrived after 9 so we weren't expecting to be served but they were happy to accommodate. Service was okay and we had to remind them about our entrees and drinks. Otherwise the food was really really good!

Beef Medium was tender and juicy! We love the friendly feel when the waitress sat down at our table to introduce the dishes to us. Will visit again!

If you're a backpacker in Glenelg ask for the backpacker menu. $12 burger fries and soft drink. Such good value and amazing service, from numerous staff. Love it here!

My bride suggested Hogs Breath due to memories of good steak and a decent serve of veggies, and she was delighted to enjoy their sweet potato wedges this time too. We both had the "lite" version of the fillet steaks, hers with calamari, mine with pork ribs basted in spicy BBQ sauce- simply delicious! They even provide a compressed towel... More

Good meals. Not the best steak around but still good and good value. If you love Hog's Breath then this is the only one in SA worth going to.

We arrived here following a strange route because we did not know the city venue was closed. This Glenelg Venue is up reasonably steep stairs. There is a stair climber but it was very dirty. The entrance is quite dark and dingy looking. It really does need to be spruced up. Upstairs there is a main dining room and a... More
