I hadn't been back the an Outbreak Restaurant in many years and now I remember why. The server recommended the Rib Eye which I remembered used to be much thicker. I asked if their Medium was red in the center and was told it was just like the picture. What came was somewhere between medium-well and well done. It was... More

The food and service at this Outback Steakhouse in Goleta are better than average but a little less than very good. I had the steak and lobster today for $21.99. The steak was a little under-cooked but seasoned nicely. The mini lobster tails were tasty but also a little under-cooked. The bread was nice and warm. It was busy because... More

Always consistent chain, never disappoints. Food always fresh; sides such as broccoli can be made without butter, etc.

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.
