Built up enough courage to give crocodile a second chance and I am happy I did at KCs. Great food, service and ambience. Worth trying if you haven’t had kangaroo or crocodile as it probably won’t get any better! Recommended for couples

Looking for a tasty, quick and value lunch, don’t go past this place. Open friendly dinning with booths, tables and bench tables for larger groups. Lunch specials including a $10 steak and chips. Lots of music history on the wall from performers.

We stopped by to check out what Kcs had to offer, after smelling great wood fired fragrances coming from the building (so much so that walking inside bought tears to the eye, but in a good way!) Waitress was absolutely totally aggressive, when we asked...More
