We have never had a bad meal here. This is our go to place when we have company and want a good steak! The appetizers are delicious and the filets are very flavorful.

Located in a local plaza this is one of my favorite restaurants in Kailua Kona. You do need to book though as it is usually a 20 minute wait.

We were looking for some good beef and decided to try Outback in Kona. The steaks were cooked over a fire and were very good. It had the same quality and flavor as on the mainland.
