We went to the Outback steak house in Cupertino on a Sunday night at 5pm. The parking lot was almost full in front of the restaurant, despite the bar being completely empty at that time. This Outback is located adjacent to the Apple campus in Cupertino, so the place is totally packed for happy hour on weekdays. In fact you... More

This is our local place for dinner when we crave a Blooming Onion, an excellent salad or a steak. This is the first time we actually made it for happy hour, which gave us a chance to get smaller sizes of appetizers, which is great for the 2 of us. We enjoyed both the Coconut Shrimp and a small serving... More

I am familiar with Outback Steakhouse from my trips to Dallas where I went several times, therefore I had no doubts I'll visit in Cupertino branch as well. The onion soup is especially fun dish and so I make sure to always take it for starter. I'm not a big fan of the seafood served there, as they are far... More

The service and food are good. This is not a five star restaurant; but, it surely serves a purpose in that the menu is diverse and the place is always clean. Virtually across the street from Apple Computer's headquarters. Outdoor seating is good from May through October. We like the wedge salad and a small steak once in while and... More

so what is good when you get lobster tails half charbroiled half frozen at the same time, so chewy, the mead at least did not taste like just out of the freezer.

The booths are a bit on the small side for four people. The food is ok, the usual menu from this chain.

Our family has come to this restaurant for several years and we have always enjoyed the limited number of items we have sampled. The chicken on the barbie is tasty and comes with steamed veggies that you can make even healthier by asking for them to be served without butter. If you go at a popular time, you will probably...

For main I had a ceaser salad,... More

The Bloomin' Onion is always worth getting. The prices are a little steep -- but meat has gotten expensive. It just like any other Outback Steakhouse

Haven't been to this Outback in years, so went on a Fri night & expected the usual dinner crowd & of course, the parking lot was full (parked on side street). However, the service & food quality is not worth the wait. Outback used to be a great value for quality steaks & food, but now their food quality has... More
