My family and I came for dinner over the weekend. 2 of our 3 meals were great but my partners steak was undercooked, thank goodness for waitstaff! After sending it back once it was still a little under his liking, but he managed. The meat was good quality so he didn't mind too much. Thank you to our understanding waitress... More

Only went for drink on a Friday night, but the service was great. That being said the place was only half full. Good entertainment, but a bit loud if you are sitting inside, which makes the outdoor seating area nice.

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.

Dead TripAdvisor users, please define the words : cheap, affordable and budget! Bar and grill located top location on Main Street. Fantastic atmosphere and great design for a steak bar. 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
