Had a nice night here, on balance. Minus: tables sticky, had to ask for them to be cleaned. Extremely noisy. Food took a long time to arrive (almost an hour on a Sunday night). Plus: very good value ($19.90 specials), food was lovely (barramundi, steak and prawns), view was nice, dessert (warm chocolate cake and ice cream) very very nice.... More

The staff were nice and the food was great. There stake is sooooooo good. But so is everything else. And I have a brother who will not eat any meat and a lot more but he loves it. I would recommend this.

Ate here after a long day of being a tourist! Massive portion sizes, glad I didn't eat all day!! Yummy burgers and nice fries, good food! Service on the slow side with a half full restaurant.

We went there for lunch on a very hot day - hoping to escape the heat and give the kids a treat. We also knew from previous visits that the meal sizes were good - and were looking forward to filling up the starving teens and tweens! Unfortunately we were disappointed on both counts. The burgers were very small (tried... More

We arrived late in the afternoon to Newcastle and were staying close by. We had no booking but thought we would give Hogs Breath a try. No problem, plenty of tables available, and a nice view over the river and dockyard area. We were quiet happy with our meal at Hogs Breath alto the steaks were very fatty! At least... More

Upon stepping into this place, we were greeted kindly and shown a table right away. The food, as per usual at Hogs Breath is amazing and in great proportion for what you pay. The views from this Hogs Breath were Breath-Taking! A really nice spot for couples and friends to hang out and enjoy the setting sun over the Marina

This is a good family friendly restaurant, though it is very noisy, making conversation difficult. The service was very good and the food was tasty, though one of the salads was doused in dressing (best to ask for dressing on the side). Kids were provided with crayons and pages to color.

We were a group of 8 wit 3 children. Wait staff, especially Ethan, was friendly and efficient. I ordered the pork belly pasta, which tasted great but had very little pork belly in it. Dessert was a disappointing crème brulee. The location at the foreshore is great though.
