Ate here on Friday night.It was quite loud inside and took a while to be served.The food came out staggered which meant our family all ate seperately.The steak was ok but not worth the $$. This place seems more suited to the younger crowd rather than families with younger children.The waitress was nice and drinks lovely but as stated the... More

My son and I sat down for a quick lunch. I had a steak sandwich, my son had salt and pepper squid, my steak sandwich was delicious, the sqiud was nice also. The chips were (according to my 16 year old son) the best chips in Australia!! I am usually a bit fussy and pick my way through a burger... More

Food was extremely overpriced. The steak was tough and I had to beg my hungry kids to eat the food. I was surprised because it got good reviews.

The service was good, my Barramundi, chips and salad was great, esp considering mains were priced under $20. Only peculiarity is during Origin they had the guy playing 90s covers while everyone was watching the footy in silence.

Service was excellent, very nice girls and accommodating holding a table for us. Ordered the special t-bone, tuna for the wife. As much as I love steak, most restaurants generally do the same basic boring sides but kc's had a couple of simple twists which really impressed me. Only problem was, despite being cooked well and nice flavour, the steak... More

Steak lovers can rejoice for here is a restaurant that knows exactly what a good steak is and how to cook it! Meals are well presented and a good size, service is fast and friendly. The atmosphere is a little bit country, a little bit rock and roll. Mains range from about $18 - $40 so there is something for... More

Fantastic meals. We ate here 2 nights in a row it was so good. My partner is fussy about how his steak is cooked but his meals were cooked to perfection both nights. I had a steak on the first night and the seafood basket the second night. Both my meals were great, the seafood basket was the best I've... More

KC's is a long established eatery in Airlie. I have been going there for meals, drinks and music for around 30 years. The standard of music is always the highest and they can cook a steak just right. Very relaxed atmosphere with friendly staff.

Always love the atmosphere at kc's and the live bands are awesome.. But some of the girls behind the bar are very rude. Don't seem happy to be there half the time. And not very welcoming or friendly when waiting for a drink

We went there for tea one night - it was very quiet and we were seen very quickly to our table. We ordered our meals and drinks which both came quickly. The food - so yummy! I ordered a parmigana and my partner had the schnitzel, plus we ordered the garlic bread for starters and even that was the best... More
