advertise about their prime rib 18hr slow cooked steak & call them self a steakhouse yet after we had sat down we were told they were out, wedges were cold, avocado was just a slither, chicken dry & tough. Considering then competition around them I'm surprised they're still around. Waste of $60

Stopped for lite dinner after movies. Decent of a bit pricey. Had the Caesar salad. Plenty of meat but swimming in dressing.. like triple or more what I would normally expect. Get salad dressing on the side and you should be good.

Had a great night. Relaxing ambience, perfect for families. I couldn't fault this restaurant, they have gone through a face lift and looks much better. The staff was friendly and polite and the service was good. The kids loved their nuggets with curly fries ( who wouldn't) and the cheesy pizza whilst the adults polished a "what a catch"and a...

Have been to Hoggies many times over the years. Now with a revamped menu and being vegetarian, there is not a great deal of choice. In saying this, my friends that love steak always enjoy their meals, although it does get a little pricey with all the add one of sauces etc. Great value for families on Monday/Tues as they... More

We stopped by for a mid afternoon snack. We both had the loaded potato skins. My partner's skins barely had any cheese filling. Mine had plenty. Our waiter was very nice and professional. Cold drinks were very cold, enjoyable on a hot day. Pleasant place to sit in the restaurant strip. Located near Village cinemas. I would go again. The... More

This joint does a pretty good burger or wrap. Stick to the lunch specials if you don't want to smash the bank. Service is good and the options are pretty good on food. Handy being near the cinemas. Would come back.

Hogs breath in Knox shopping centre was our favourite steakhouse and we have been their clients for years. The slow cooked steak was my love as it is tender and juicy. But this time(December 2016), the steak quality was so dry and scorched such that we doubt they changed the chef, A great disappointment! Actually, I see a lot of... More
