Australian tchotchkes and brews give this quintessentially American restaurant a distinctive Down Under flavor. – In Short
Boomerangs, Aussie flags, kangaroo portraits and faux aboriginal art honor the homeland's wilderness, but Outback delivers a polished version of rusticity with varnished blond-wood booths with matching wainscoting and casually uniformed waitstaff. Besides more than a half-dozen cuts of steak, diners can pick from large-portioned entrees like ribs, chops and shrimp or chicken "on the barbie." The Bloomin' Onion, a large onion dipped in batter and deep-fried, is an appetizer with a following.
New ownership changes quality – We have eaten at this Outback often since it first opened and always loved it.
As I understand, the ownership changed and our last two visits will be exactly that...the last.
*Onion blossom was overcooked and they needed to change ther cooking oil.
*Had to return a drink as the bartender "didn't know how to make it" so we were told.
*Potato soup was "watery" and we were told that managment thought more poeple liked
it "that way"
*Medium prime rib was delivered rare.
*My filet, ordered medium rare, arrived EXTRA rare and no one checked back to see if everything was alright.
When we were ready for the bill (I had not eaten one bite of my steak!) a manager stopped by. I asked him how my steak looked like it was prepared.....he said "very rare" and had it cooked more and put it in a to-go box.
That's our final disappointment with this place.
