Our party of 9 enjoyed a lovely lunch here out on the balcony. Order was taken and served correctly and promptly. Waitress was friendly and polite. Food was tasty and we all enjoyed a nice lunch out together

First time here. For the price I paid I thought the quality and service would be better. My medium steak was a bit overcooked. And we waited before being seated, despite many tables were available... Nothing really special aside from the restaurant decoration.

We regularly stop in at Hog's Breath for lunch when on the Marina - staff always friendly and the food is consistently good. Had a stand-out steak, so did my husband. My girls love the curly fries and nuggets as a special treat.

Service was quick as we arrived, ordered, eaten and out in around 45 minutes. The food is standard Hogs fair. I had the ribs. They were OK. Not like what you get at genuine rib restaurants. My wife had the steak sandwich and she said it was the best she has had. Best to book during school holidays and weekends.

We came for a late lunch and was pleasantly surprised by quality of food. Steak was cooked to perfection and we have been to some 'highly acclaimed' steak places like Rockpool, kingsley's etc. The location at the marina is gorgeous and so relaxing, and staff really friendly. Kids eat free on certain days and makes this place really good value... More

I had read the numerous negative comments about this HB prior to visiting Nelson Bay. One of our group requires gluten free food. Accordingly we perused the menus for about 12 different restaurants, cafes and diners and settled on HB because it offered the widest selection of gluten free foods.We visited midweek for lunch and thus the town was not...

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.
