Christmas Eve

Two years in a row we have gone to Outback for our family Christmas Eve dinner and both times it has been great! Even though it was Christmas Eve the staff were so great and nice. Totally plan on going back this year!

We often pop into an OB and just enjoy A tall cold beer and have lite food! I felt our waitress wasn't very supportive and certainly didn't go out of her way to make our visit positive! Food was just OK, wasn't busy! With our experience I wouldn't be in a hurry to return to Venice location!

This place is known for great steaks but I love their Alice Spring Chicken and cheesy fries. Wonderful salads as well. Very friendly staff.

For years I have been coming here, and never, ever have been disappointed. This time I had a new server, Nicole, who took care of us as if we were family. The food, as always, was great. Yes, I see from others' commentaries that they are not happy with the rise in price, but when I spoke to Brian, the... More

The Outback Steakhouse is always good. This one is well managed and has great service. Food is consistent and prices reasonable.

I have no tolerance for a restaurant (or gas station, or grocery stores) who deliberately rise the price and remove the benefits as the "IN" season approaches. This seems to be how Venice operates but I am really upset with the Outback. My husband and I have patronized this name since the days they opened their doors. First for 20... More

OK! I've written a lot of reviews and I really hate to slam a place but this restaurant is just plain awful. We live in Venice but have never eaten here before. Our favorite restaurant (Robbi's Reef) was closed tonight so we went to Outback on the spur of the moment. Lets start with the positives. We were greeted warmly... More

We waited 45 minutes for a table. We had great service once we were seated and food was delicious. But I feel that is too long of a wait. Our beeper never did go off and I went in twice to check on our wait time. Not so sure we will go back.

Just picked up our take out dinner, brought it home to find the sorriest excuse for a burger with fries!! They are soggy and almost nonexistent!!! When we have been to this restaurant and dined in it was good, but this take out is really poor!!
