Came to Hogs Breath after we left another place down the road as they refused to accept our entertainment voucher (lucky we asked before ordering). The guy who served us at Hogs Breath said there was no problem using it. We had a couple of beers and the Chicken, Brie and Bacon burger. It was good honest food. The restaurant... More

Food was very average but as expected. Kids asked whether the steak was really cooked for 18 hours as claimed. Vegetables disappointing in serve size, taste and presentation.

The food, the view and the pleasant staff all make Hogs Breath Cafe at Surfers Paradise a great choice to dine for dinner or lunch. The prime rib steaks are amazing, as is the Bruchetta. I would highly recommend Hogs Breath Cafe at Surfers Paradise to anyone who loves a good sized, perfectly cooked steak!

Good night out with family in a very relaxing atmosphere. Staff was great and provided great service. My steak was cooked perfectly and coupled with the pepper sauce it made it great.

The service was very bad, they forgot one order, they forgot the wine, we had to ask each time and even go to see a waitress because no one were coming or walked so fast and couldn't stop them. The ribs taste boiled meat like ragu instead of grilled ribs. It was good thought because we like ragu as well,... More

Definitely wasn't up to the quality we get from our local hogs breath restaurants. The Steak was quite gross, and told at around 7.30pm they are all out of mashed potato & wouldn't make more I thought that was a bit silly.

This place is really for steak lovers. It has chicken and seafood on the menu which are very well cooked and presented, but the most care and variety seems to have been taken with the slow cooked steak. Seafood basket included a crab cake which was delicious. Choice of curly fries which we had and were yum, or sweet potato... More

The waitresses were absolutely lovely, the entrees were great and the mains came out super quick however we're cold. It seemed as if they cooked out mains The same time as the entrees and just waited till we finished. Will not be coming back.
