Set back a little from the road, easy to miss. There were 4 us, we had the 8 oz Sirloin ($20), the 6 oz Sirloin ($16), the Steakhouse salad ($16) and the Ribs & Chicken ($20); together with 1 beer & 2 bottles of wine came to $136 before tips.

Last two visits are probably my last. am not sure what has changed, but this chain used to be better. The last two times I visited (different locations) made me wonder why I stayed for the whole meal.

If you want a good feed of vegetables with your steak, this is the place to go. We stayed in Kona for eight nights, and had dinner here for four of them. Value for $$$$.

Celebrated my wife's birthday at Outback, with a party of 12. We arrived 10 minutes early, and they had our table ready. Glad I called and made a reservation. Atmosphere: dimly lit, slightly loud (with football on televisions) and as expected crowd noise. Food/drinks: great selection of alcohol and non-alcohol drinks. Food was as expected. We had the blooming onion... More

Clean your ceiling vents! The Health Department color coded plaqcard notices are coming! And when someone mentions it, please tell your employees "NOT" to tell the CUSTOMER "Don't Look!"

Delicious and affordable steaks and sides. Try the awesome blossom. More outdoor seating, for less wait would be better.

Went for dinner our last night in the islands. Should have gone somewhere else. Place was NOT busy at all, yet service was extremely SLOW. We even saw a few couples leave after waiting a while. I know this place using their special seasoning on everything including the salads. I asked that they not put ANY seasoning on my food.... More

The advantage to eating at a national chain is that you know what to expect so we were extremely disappointed to not get seated until about an hour after our reservation time. We did have a large party (14) and it was the weekend of a large Canoe Paddling Long Distance Race (which is why we made reservations early). To... More
