“best steak meal in a long time!”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

My partner and I had a quick getaway to whitianga, and were hanging out for a good steak. Wandered around on a sunday evening looking for a such a place and came across this. Frankly, we were not dissapointed at all! Steak was perfectly cooked, very generous serving and arrived in a timely manner. Only one staff member out the front, who ran it smoothly and with a great manner! Very impressed. Will be back if ever up that way again and have recommended to others already.

“A step up since last time”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Although the menu could do with some work, overall not too bad. New staff but not enough, however they managed and feed our table of six. Having to order at the counter slows the whole process as customers ordering and customer wanting to pay fight for the cash registrar. New chefs produced timely food, large scallops wrapped in bacon, rock oysters, cheesy pizza bread for entrees and mains of scotch, burger, ribs and a enormous warm lamb salad. Would like to see a new menu and new items as I dine here a couple of times a fortnight every four months.

“Best ever nachos!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Best ever nachos says The Social Secretary.
A lunch time visit to Wild Hogs had us enthusing over the location, service & most importantly the food.
I had the mussel fritters & I would have no hesitation in recommending. Big, tender, moist juicy chunks of mussel. Great value at $15.
My wife raved over the nachos. A little more expensive at $18.50 but good value as there was a decent serving of very tasty chilli con carne over the corn chips & a good spoonful of sour cream.
The only grizzle was I thought $8.20 for a Macs Gold beer was a little expensive.
