Enjoyable Meal – Enjoyed a nice dinner. Waiter was prompt with any requests & food was delicious. I had the pork tenderloins & my wife had the baby-back ribs. Food was served in a timely manner but then again it wasn't busy there. One of the managers even came over, introduced herself and asked how our dinner was. Not enough restaurants do this. Overall, enjoyed our time there.
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.
Best Steaks, Appitizers, Service & Value Anywhere! Outback Rules! – Wait time? I never have to wait and am seated before people standing around with pagers simply because I call ahead. I have Outback programmed in my phone in case I am out and decide to go there.
Everyone knows lots of people frequent this restaurant. They have a call-ahead service and they will put you on their list before you get there. The food is great and the service is always awesome. As one who tips generously before dinner, it would be. Some have said there are better steaks elsewhere, but didn't mention where that is. Outback has the best I have ever had and compares to Ruth Chris at a fraction of the price. Hey, when your steak is perfect every time, you can?t get much better than that.
I typically get the ribeye (called a Scotch fillet in Australia) and one has to know that they cook their steaks one temperature under what you order. I dislike overcooked food and Outback is always consistent, unlike other places I have been. I would never go anywhere else for a steak. The salads are quite generous in size and when I order it without croutons and extra onions; that is exactly what I get.
The Outback style prime rib is excellent. I don?t believe it is on the current menu, but they will fix it for you if you ask. They take the prime rib and flash it on the grill for a minute, giving it a great flavor. The lamb is good too and can be served as chops if you request it. It has a distinctive rosemary flavor. Don?t forget to order the coconut shrimp appetizer; it is awesome!
I enjoy the atmosphere and the decorations are fun to look at. I have always received prompt and attentive service. My glass has never been empty and I have never lacked anything in the years I have been going here. Without exception, anywhere else I have ordered a steak, it was overcooked. It must be a Florida thing as many indigenous people in the south order medium well; I hear it all the time. Outback just does it better than any other. I think I might go there tonight!
Sorry to say, but the quality of the ribeye has gone way down. On my recent visit I ordered it and so did my buddy. Both looked like very thin cheap cuts, lots of fat and were both overcooked. They looked like what you would expect to be served at Denny's for half the price. I will say this is not typical of my history with Outback. I don't know if it was just this one time, or if they have decided to buy cheap steaks. The ribeyes I used to get were lean, generous and cooked just right.
They do not offer salads with entrees anymore, which was a surprise. I think they are $2.99 extra. I usually sit in the bar area because of the TV and you don't have to wait if there is a table open. Service was pleasant, but took forever to get bread after asking for it a few times. It didn't come out untill the entrees were served.
Given the overall experience this time, it is unlikely I will go back. That's a shame because it was my favorite restaurant. I think I'll try Longhorn next time and will write a review when I do.
Critic – Great food, you must be patient for service. I wonder....if there is always a wait-it must be worth it. :)
It's outback okay – I prefer to not go there again, the wait was too long and the food was nothing to brag about.
Always good... – No matter which location I frequent, the food, service, and atmosphere are great, almost identical. You always know what you'll get (quality and value), how long it will take and how great the service is.
Average – Outback is an average place to get good steak. I would say I eat here frequently however I know there are much better places in town for steak.
Backout – I used to enjoy Outback, and depending on the city it is still a very nice restaurant, but the last few times I have been the service was under par, especially considering the wait for a table. The food is still good but not the best.
tasty steak – Love the cheese fries no steak is complete without those. The steak is great just the way it comes without any steak sauce. Great dessert!! The garlic croutons are to strong!!
