Great fish - at a steakhouse.

To me the steak is okay, nothing spectacular. But the Mahi Mahi is wonderful! Make sure you try the Wallaby Darn - a great blended drink with peach schnapps and champagne. It's often loud and has bad lighting, but if you don't mind the crowd it's a good place to eat. Beware that the pink lights... read more

The nice part about the Outback Steakhouses is that you can always expect and get great service and great foods. Love their pumpernickel bread mini loaf that they serve warm, right of the oven to you. Steaks are always delicious, and love their salads and their bake potatoes. Highly recommend.

I have been this restaurant customer for many years, first in Florida, and now mainly in San Diego. I love the way they treat you, their food and fair prices. Their Onion soup is excellent, their Cesar Salad as well and their Salmos too, but what I really like is their Victoria Steak.

The Blooming Onion has shrunk in size and was not as firm as usual. The steak was cook very well but the vegetables were overcooked and limp. Service was very good.

Had not been to Outback in a while as I am in Escondido and this is the closest; tried out their lunch menu; it was a downsized dinner menu. I had the 9oz Sirloin with House Salad and vegetables, my wife had a small steak and 3 shrimp; we both thought the food was great; steaks cooks to our liking... More

Our meal was terrible. My salad was very limp. I had lobster and it was not fresh and was poorly prepared. My husband's steak was flavorless. Nothing seemed fresh and absolutely nothing was tasty. I don't know if they just have a lousy cook at this location or what, but it makes us leery of trying any other Outback now.

We ate in Outback today. It took some time for get the table although the restaurant did not seem to be full. I ordered Alice Springs chicken, which comes with e.g. bacon, mushrooms and Monterey Jack cheese. I can warmly recommend Alice Springs chicken. Just make sure to be hungry enough :-) The portion was large so there was no... More

An old fan of Outback, my last few visits to them have been uneven, with this one not so good. As the host of a party for five, we were seated at a table much too large for our group, uncomfortable. It hadn't been set-up and wasn't until food arrived. Its hard to describe our server, but "unlikeable" comes to... More
