Very nice location, of course it is brand new, needs a bit of time to build an atmosphere. Steaks cooked to perfection, service great, clean and friendly. A lot better than the previous underground location and if you want a great steak go to HOGGIES

“Great steak”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

Seated quickly, friendly staff, lots of small kids at each table, ordered straight away as the kids were hungry. They had colouring to keep them amused. The meals came out quite fast considering how busy they were on this Sunday night. I was really impressed with my avocado steak it was tender and tasty. Kids nuggets looked good too. The only thing bad was the noise but if u have kids yourself I don't think it bothers u as much. Finished our meal w the kids free ice cream and we ordered the chocolate fondue. It was delicious way to end a nice family meal. Not enough to share w 4 kids we should have got 2. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to families.

“Great Steak and Service”
Reviewed 10 November 2013 via mobile

A very busy Restaurant and great place for a decent steak cooked medium rare.

I don't know about the negative reviews on here. The steaks where cooked to perfection and the service was excellent.

My advice would be if you go to an Italian Restaurant, order the pasta. If you go to Hogs Breath order the steak!

“Tasty”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

Been to the old Hogs Breath in Surfers before it shut down and the new location in Surfers and it's way better now. The food is always great at Hogs Breath but just been able to see out into Surfers makes such a difference compared to the old underground location.
