we had a gift card -- next time I'll sell it on Ebay – I went here with my husband and daughter. Let me start off by saying the drinks were good. That's where good ends. It was so so busy we had to wait for 45 min. We sat down and it still was really busy. We ordered a bloomin onion and that was good. I ordered a steak with crab cakes and asked for the steak cooked "raw". I do this because always, every time, it comes well done. This time was no exception. Yes, I could send it back, but the waitress was working her fanny off, so I just ended up taking it home. My husband ordered a full rack of ribs and my daughter's half rack was bigger that his? That was very strange. The sides are just ok. I ordered mushrooms and they were very garlicky! My daughter and husband got baked potatoes which are hard to mess up. I don't think I will return for a very long time.... sorry...
thank God it was free – My husband and I were given a gift card for Outback as a gift and we decided it would be a nice night out! We got there, it wasn't busy at all so we were seated right away. We both wanted the roasted filet with shrimp scampi. The waiter comes back and says they're out of roasted filet??? um, ok... so we order sirloin with scampi instead. I asked for a side salad, which i never got (thankfully wasnt charged for either) and so when our entress came I was starving!! Well, the way it was plated, everything tasted like garlic garlic garlic!! Then they serve it with garlic mashed potatoes!!! Ugh!! the shrimp were way too overdone and that "scampi" if that's what you would call it, garlic sauce just overpowered everthing on the plate!! Even my veggies! So, when we got the bill and realized how much it was for mediocre food (almost 45.00) I said thank God it was a gift card. I'd pick Texas Roadhouse over this anyday and it's cheaper!
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.
I had a good petit filot minon and my salad was good and the atmosphere is alright. The wait staff was good when I went.
mmm,mmm good – The restaurant has excellent food and good fast service, atmoosphere is good and good music and friendly servers.
NO! – Not even close the best steak. Unless of course you don't know what a good steak is, and you just drown whatever meat they toss on your plate in A1. If yer cheap and still want steak maybe I'd go here....
Let's get real – The best steak you've ever had is the best you've ever eaten or been able to afford. The Outback serves a decent steak for $19. Add King Crab Legs for $8.95 and an appetizer of Coconut Shrimp (which I've always enjoyed there...in Florida, they'd probably think I was nuts...Florida has the best Coconut Shrimp and sauce I've ever tasted).
We're talking about $35 for a meal (salad and potato included), compared to $36+ for just the steak.
Ruth's Chris has a better steak, as do Shula's, Morton's, The Capitol, Peter Luger's, and countless other restaurants, but, if you're looking for a decent meal at a reasonable price, you'll be okay at The Outback.
There really should be separate categories for steakhouses and chains. Try The Outback; enjoy yourself. Don't let the steak snobs get to you...we've all been there...at least I hope we have.
