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!

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

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.
