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

The first time I ever went to this place was way back in 2005 and I had an amazing dinner... something to the effect of the Australian trio (roo, croc, emu). Decided to go there again and wasn't blown away, but was definitely satisfied. The food wasn't amazing, and the price was pretty average, but we had great service from... More

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

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
