“Not the best meal at Hogs Breath.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2014

We went to Hogs Breath on the last night of the heatwave. We had booked a table, and when we got there were a bit concerned that it was really hot in the restaurant and we were in a back corner. Apparently their air-con wasn't coping with the heat, so we asked to move and they were able to give us a small table on the balcony, which was much better. We have been to a few Hogs Breaths around Australia over the years, unfortunately this one wasn't as good as the others. We ordered the Tower for 2, and the steaks while ordered medium, came out well done and were very tough. The chicken was dry. Luckily the curly fries were good!!

“Beautiful food and balcony !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2014

We had dinner on the balcony here on a Tuesday night. Children under 12 eat free with any adult meal so it was great value as well. We had the salmon and it was magnificent. I really enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the people of glenelg go by !! Very relaxing

“Thank you! Amazing food & service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2014 via mobile

We went for an early dinner and were lucky to snag a balcony sea view table! Views amazing, fantastic atmosphere, great food and service. Young, friendly, enthusiastic, and well trained staff. Steaks cooked amazing, curly fries delicious! We both enjoyed wonderful deserts! Try the profiteroles! Delicious!!!! So so yummy! Quick service with drinks. They were booked out after 7pm, so ring and book a table. We went to their rival Outback Jacks, they have A LOT to learn from Hogs Breath Glenelg. We will be back!
