Had lunch here on a Sunday, it was a popular spot but the meals came out quickly and the staff were very friendly. We both had the battered barramundi with chips and salad for $16.50 each. Just watch the $12 burgers as it's extra for chips, extra for salads, extra for sauce etc. this can add up to be more... More

After being so tired from a long drive it was nice to be greeted by such friendly staff, we had the salmon and lamb and they both were delicious. We would definitely come back if we return to Airlie Beach.

In Airlie for a couple of nights, checked out the websites for 3 steakhouses. KC's was out in front, visited tonight and had Porterhouse steaks 200g and 400g, medium and medium/well. Both cooked to perfection, no need for sauces as the taste was terrific. Best meal in a long time.

We wanted a good pub steak and were referred here - we got a good pub steak and chips as we wanted. Old style atmosphere with live music. Our service was excellent, so a good experience and will go back on a future trip.

I had dinner here with my partner as a cheaper option for dinner than some of the other venues around town. We sat on 2 large tables pushed together to form an 8 seater and were told that we might have others sit down with us. We had no problem with this at all, however some of the older patrons... More

Rib eye fillet steak - thin, sinewy and tough. Add 2:prawns and a truly awful bearnaise sauce and charge $40 - a total ripoff. Very disappointed.

We just visited for dinner for the first time in about 12 years. We used to eat here a lot 'back in the day' before Airlie got developed. We were pleasantly reminded of the great food here! The fish was so fresh, it was like fresh fish we catch ourselves, it was that good! The oyster shooters were still on... More

If you are still in the area please drop by & enjoy an evening with a wonderful entertainer Shaun Kirk who is playing... More
