Maybe i have unrealistic expectations when it comes to a good steak. None the less, based on my past 3 experiences (each time ordering a different dish) I'm happy to rate it at best 'average'. For a meal in the $30 - $40 price range, maybe i had higher hopes. If you've ever been to restaurants like Ribs & Rumps,... More

Another great steak at KC's, has never failed in the quality of produce and in the cooking. Always a pleasure to be able to go somewhere for a reliable steak.

Live music most nights and some good acts too!! Service extremely poor. No smile, staff stressed besides the fact that some tables are not occupied. As expected some staff are... More

These guys have the best ribs in Queensland, seriously. They do great steaks and have cold beer! We had lunch 3 days in a row here and were never disappointed, we even arrived one day in wet suits after jet skiing and there were no dramas. Great staff and lovely atmosphere.

After failing to get into a couple of other restaurants in town, we finally got a table here. Very attentive service. While I wasn't particularly hungry, and as such, just had oysters Kirkpatrick, the rest of my family enjoyed their meals immensely. I was very happy with the service from our waitress - she knew about the menu, was always... More

Had a blast there with great food and good live band, the staff were, sadly, not that good with both forgetting orders and rushing us to leave. Still, good atmosphere.
