We paid $75 including tip of $12 - for 2 salads with two 22oz beers with two 8oz sirloin steaks with a side order of aussie... More

It was difficult to find a strip anywhere in Kona while visiting in Oct 2014. The Outback was fairly consistent with what you find on the mainland. Seemed to be mostly a local outing venue vs traveler. Not bad overall.

Managed to arrive shortly before 5pm when the crowds started to mob in. Decided to try the prime rib tonight, baked potato, and caesar salad. It was all wonderful! I wish i had ordered the bigger prime rib as it was so good! Could have licked my plate!

My friend and I really wanted steak and after reading reviews for various places we decided on outback steak house as the best option, even though the reviews aren't great. There just isn't much in the kona area. So even with low expectations it was still disappointing. They messes up our steaks wrong steaks wrong person and for a steak... More

Meals were reasonably priced, and were a decent size. Food was well cooked with good flavours but nothing spectacular

We used to eat here 2-3 times a week.Then food quality started going down hill and prices were going up. Now it is 2 times a year, just to see if they were getting better. They didn't. I called time and time again to tell them the food quality was getting worse. In a year no improvements. Tonight we ordered... More

This is a busy spot so get there early. The food is good with a large menu to choose from. Big servings so hope you are hungry
