We had a large party with a variety of orders and special requests. Our server handled all of them accurately and ensured bread, butter and drinks were replenished. The drink orders were a bit slow in arriving.

We dine at our local Outback once or twice a month and it's always good so it's no surprise that the one in Goleta lives up to the reputation.

This was just another Outback Steakhouse. The good part about a chain restaurant is that you know what you're getting. The bad part is that they're all so standardized that you don't get any local flair.

I'll preface this review by saying that everyone else in the restaurant was either very Senior or very Large or both and they seemed to be enjoying themselves. So if that description fits you then by all means go there as it means more room at the good restaurants. The kid serving us was nice and actually did a very... More

My 3 guests arrived over an hour late on the Coast Starlight, so we decided to hit the Outback for a good dinner and drinks. There were 5 of us for dinner. Our meals were hot, drinks delicious, and our server, Fernando, was the best! He was prompt with our meals and drinks, got everything correct too. I highly recommend... More

Where and how do I begin! Oh yes, a month ago when the reservation was made for graduation dinner. Tonight our party arrives early, they sit my family at 3 separate tables. When the manager and owner, Sonny was asked why we are separated when the reservation was made a month ago, he, unapologetic proceeds to explain in a sarcastic... More

We always love Outback. This one is not at busy at other locations so it was a breeze getting right in at 6:30 pm. But was delicious as usual.

Outback offers great steaks at fair prices. I appreciate that they offer soup or salad, and a side dish. They have lots of healthy options which I really appreciate when dining out. My husband and I both ordered steaks, they were flavorful and cooked exactly as we wanted. He had a caesar salad and I had the side salad. Mine... More

I am not a frequent flyer, however it's a great place to meet family and friends, with children as well. We had a great salad with pecans, very tasty. And the steaks are good too... You can get a meal for $10 and be quite satisfied.

We were visiting our son who has been eating dorm food for six weeks and he wanted steak! This was a perfect place to go. The food was very good and the menu had a nice variety. Their clam chowder is being served every night because they won an award for "Best Clam Chowder in Santa Barbara". It WAS very... More
