“Pub style but better”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Ate here twice in 7 days and the best meals we had in Airlie. Good portions, reasonable prices, greta location and attmosphere with live music every night.(not bands but solo performers playing easy listening songs). Full table service for both food and drinks which was rare in Airlie. Seemed to be well supported by locals whcih is a good sign.

KC's has stood the test of time, an Airlie iconic establishment that continues to provide great steaks, friendly crew, fast service and live music. Thanks Chris and crew.

“Tasty steaks well cooked in a friendly pub setting.”
Reviewed 8 May 2014 via mobile

We were pleasantly surprised with the good quality steaks, chips n salad here.
It doesn't look much but they did it well and at really reasonable prices.
Not a great wine list is my only complaint here, I know it's a pub but they should at least have the wines on there wine list available.
It would be nice if they had a few more good wines to go with the well cooked food.

“There's better to be had”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

My partner and I went here for lunch, he had a schnitzel and I ordered a beef burger. He was happy with his meal but my burger was not nice, the beef patty appeared to be cooked but had a weird consistency like raw mince meat. It was unpleasant and messy. The waitress was nice but I definitely wouldn't go back
