This is a drinking town with a sailing problem

This bar/ steak house is a great place to kick of the evening. Cosy and rustic food served from the grill. They have one man entertainment an the weekends. This place is full of character.

Very disappointing experience here with the oysters. They were warm and after about 2 each all 3 of us said they tasted off. The other meals (ribs, fish n chips) were average and the service was attentive.

You're spoiled for choice when eating out in Airlie, but one evening hubby and I decided to try something different. We noticed KCs has crocodile and kangaroo on the menu, and we'd never eaten croc before. The atmosphere is very relaxing and the staff were very helpful. We asked the waitress what croc tastes like, and she said "Like salty... More

Lovely starter particularly the bruschetta. Steaks were cooked perfectly with nice side to compliment it nicely. Good atmosphere, good service, if your after a steak you could do worse.

The dinner meals were cold and unappetizing and the band was pretty pedestian, sorry. The meals sat on the counter for so long that when they arrived they were cold though the place was not very busy. The seating was uncomfortable and service very ordinary.
