I went there for my birthday with my family the food was well priced and offered smaller meals.
This was a well organised business considering the CO-VID 19 restrictions.


Would visit again have been here when there was no restrictions.

We always have a great time at Hogans Bistro. The staff are friendly and helpful, the food is always great and served promptly. The Bistro is always clean and all of the staff are very professional, this is why it is a favorite of ours for the planned get together with friends.

Friendly reception upon arrival. The ordering process (due to COVID-19) was explained so we knew that a waitperson would be coming to our table and we didn't need to go to the bar etc.
Tasty food and friendly staff. I would recommend Hogan's to anyone. Thank you.

Placed in bad location in regard to Covid-19 restrictions. Was directly next to reception desk with people over our backs. No limitations in interaction and bad management.
A good meal spoiled by the fact that too many people too close

I had the curry. It was cold. It had about 6 small pieces of meat. Hard and dried out like it leftovers from lunch That was stuck to the pot. . Not even chewable. The meal consisted of rice and a plateful of sauce. Normally the meals are nice but Not this time. Disappointed as it nearly cost$30.

As a place to go with your family, this place is amazing! Great family atmosphere, kids play area great for kids of all ages. Not ideal for a quiet romantic dinner, despite mentioning on the booking it was for an anniversary they put us overlooking the highway. That was the only down side though, as the food was incredible! A huge plate of food at a reasonable price, the parmigiana was humongous! Highly recommend eating at Hogans, the staff were friendly and attentive, always smiling.

Chose Hogan’s for the vegan menu items, and they didn’t disappoint - the eggplant parmigiana was delicious (but huge)!! My meat-eating family also went away very full and happy.

Food was very yummy and came out pretty quick.

It was a Saturday evening and there was a balloon artist in the kids play area. Which was fun for the kids.

A little on the expensive side but couldn't fault the meals.

Food was cold. Service was too much, standing by table waiting to take glass before finished, interupting conversation to ask all ok. Very noisy.

As members of Hogans, we regularly go to Hogans every Friday Night (since moving to Wallan), to enjoy a nice meal and drinks and relax after a busy week, but Friday the 30th we arrived at 6.30pm and was shown our table all normal with a happy staff.
I placed our order for our meals and purchased some drinks, all normal with good service.
We received our meals which always looks good, but my meal was a mixed grill, was fine until I started my steak, half was really good but the second half of the steak was tough, hard to cut as it had big sections of grizzle and wasn't eatable.
This is the first meal that I have had a meal at Hogans and wasn't up to standard of what we usually get from Hogans, just a little disappointed.

Super friendly staff. No wedges, which was surprising ( who doesn’t have wedges ?? ) and fish was a bit over cooked, but everything else was good. First time we’ve ever had any issue with the food, so definitely will return :)
