Chain restaurant without quality control on either food or wait staff

Our experience was not a good one. The restaurant was crowded and we waited over 30 minutes. The service was very poor, in that it was slow (not enough people working the tables), our waitress failed to take the order accurately, and took over 20 minutes to bring the bill once dinner was done... read more

O vacation, we have a tradition of grabbing a Blooming Onion to go for a treat....were we surprised when we got it back to our condo - it was about half the size of what we usually receive! But, of course, at a higher price. Very disappointing. We will be looking for a new tradition.

We have visited a few Outback restaurants over the years, and after a couple of bad experiences a while back, we had decided not to go back. But, here we were, out for a early dinner, not many alternatives around that early, so we gave it one last shot. And, for sure, we should have let it go. It's primarily... More

We went there on December, the 31st, hoping to get at this occasion a very good meal. How disappointing! My meat was really to cooked and a lot to spicy too (and I was stupid enough to not request them to make it again). The service was just ok, too intrusive…

We go to the Outback for dependable, quality food that we know will please our palet and not be hard on our wallet. The service is always dependable and quick. It's not gourmet but it's good.

This is still one of the best places for a good steak in Kona. Some of the waitstaff hit it out of the park and are ready with suggestions and helpful insight. For instance when I was asked (Bu Cody-the most awesome server) if I wanted another drink, I hesitated. The waiter's comment was "it's only $4.50 right now", which... More

Always consistent, one of our GO TO! restaurants in Kailua Kona. Good kids menu that offers value. The menu is also more than just steaks.

We ate at Outback near the end of a two week trip to Hawaii and many of the local places we tried were better but we enjoyed our meal at Outback. Parking was a problem as it often is in Kona but we found a spot after 30 minutes or so of searching. We then waited about 15 minutes to... More
