This was our first experience with this particular Outback, and the place was packed. By the end of the evening, we could not at all understand why. The salads (one Caesar and one garden) were OK; nothing special, but edible. The small sirloin steaks (one very tough, one mostly gristle) were terrible. For the first time in over 20 years,... More

First of all I would like to start off by saying I love the Halibut for Dinner. I have had it three different times and each time it was outstanding. Now lunch, don't do it to yourself. It took forever to get a beer and some water. Really slow service to the table. Would you pay $11.95 for a dried... More

Every time I'm in this area (3-4 times per year), I meet my sons and granddaughters here for lunch or dinner. I've dined at several Outback's and I have to rate this one the best of the lot. Service has been very efficient on each visit and the servers have been light hearted and friendly . I've had the Cheeseburger,... More

We eat here a couple of times a year & I like it, but not crazy about it. But this time I was pleasantly surprise with an EXCELLENT steak!! I usually am disappointed in Filet Mignons anyplace but Ruth's Chris... but the one I had was VERY tender & flavorful! I'll actually want to eat here more often if I... More

Went back for the first time in about 10 years on Valentines day no less. They still provide a very good meal at an affordable price. We had the 9oz Top Sirloin combo and for $16 we had dinner and lunch today. Only gripe was large draft Blue Moon was $8 during Happy Hour a tad bit high I think.... More

We got to know and enjoy Outback restaurants on a previous vacation to Florida so made sure we got to one when in California in 2012. Always really good steaks and sides, highly recommended.

Had two wonderful meals for two evenings in a row! Our experience was ALL GOOD! Week nights, and they were busy which always sends a positive message.

This food was so bad twice. The first time I am 100% sure they dumped all the salt they had in my blue cheese wedge salad. Second time we ordered a 20 ounce porterhouse steak and first of all, it looked more like 10 ounces. Second of all, it was cold and way undercooked. We told the waiter and he... More

I find that when I'm traveling most restaurants close by 9 and that is sometimes not late enough to get a nice dinner. I usually fly into SNA and stay in Laguna Niguel and Outback is open until 10 pm during the week, later on the weekends. Good food, a little expensive but convenient.

The good was soo good! Service was great! I was skeptical about ordering fish, had the Halibut and it was awesome! Best I've had. Juicy, flaky, great flavor. The scallops were delish. Definately will go back if ever in the area.
