What a great place to take the family. A young lady Tahlia was our waitress and she was a delight. Food came out super quickly and it was delicious. An affordable yet delicious meal out that is family friendly.

Paying $35 for a 250gram steak which was 1/3 fat (not well broken down either) is disappointing. The restaurant gets a 2/5 star based on the friendly service and amazing location (saving it from a terrible review).

The Hog's Breath at Nelson Bay supplied us both with a light and crisp Caesar Salad. A Quiet sunny day enabled us to sit on the verandah in an informal surround with courteous table service. Very pleasant!
