Great steaks

The whole Aussie approach was quite well done, but the quality of the food and staff made it better.

I really needed to have an opportunity to give it two and a half. It really wasn't poor, but it was below average. Outback is not inexpensive, but acts like it is. For the price, the food is just marginal. One of my pet peeves in eating out is when you order with one person and other people bring out... More

Don't overlook Outback! I'm usually not big on giving my business to chains. In this case the food is great and the servers are hard working locals so why not? They have a very nice cocktail menu. They have apps and mini-apps too! Great sandwiches, fish, chicken, and of course the steaks. I love the fresh broccoli side dish. We... More

I like Outback Bar and Grill so much that we try to get there at least 2 times a month. My favorite is the bloomin onion and the seared ahi as appetizers and we love to sit in the bar area and enjoy watching the sports and then we order the chocolate brownie with ice cream and split it.

Outback was very busy the night we went. All four of us had steak with different sides. I requested medium rare, got medium. The service was quick and efficient.

We've eaten here before but tonight the service was better than any other time we've been there. It was busy as expected. We were quoted 25-35 minute wait but was seated in about 15. Our drink order was taken fairly quickly, with an appetizer amd dinner to follow. My husband ordered his usual and it was as always amazing but... More

As a steak lover, we went here and got what we wanted, its a little pricey but the service is good, and the steaks are great.Its nice you get bread/butter whilst you wait and the petal onion starters with dips were very nice. We also went here on our last night, but im sure we will be back some time

What really can you say about outback? They are kind of the same everywhere. This one was nice to eat at just before getting on our red eye flight back to the mainland.

Best buy for a steak in Kona. Fair price, good steak. To dark inside, but that's all Outback resturants.
