The misses and I brought a meal for dinner. She had the reef and beef and I had 500g porterhouse. The porterhouse was fantastic and the reef beef was a little undercook but all in all amazing taste. Tip: don't sit too close too live music speakers are very loud but great tunes.

We wanted a quick and easy evening meal and KC's filled the bill. despite being fairly busy, the waitress found us a table and was friendly and prompt. Iced water was complimentary and our meals were quick to arrive, well presented, and delicious. There was also an entertainer performing who was popular with the crowd. Worth a visit.

My partner and i ordered the reef and beef & eye fillet. Both steaks were amazing! So tender, probably the best steak I have ever eaten. My partner went there around 3 years ago and the quality has not changed. I am surprised this place is not higher ranked for the quality of the steak alone.

Had the Atlantic salmon and it was Devine. Friends had the crocodile and surf n turf and it was awesome. Wagyu rump was done to perfection! Drinks and meals came out very timely, even with 6 adults and 4 kids! Credit to the chef and management!

We didn't eat at KC's but we went there every night for drinks and to enjoy the fantastic LIVE music. We are older folks (late forties), so the other pubs/bars are a bit out of our age range. But KC's is just right. That's not to say the music is for "old folks" - it isn't. The artists play a... More
