Always Good

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

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

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!!

A good experience, as chain restaurants are concerned. Their service a consistently attentive. Food is well presented and tasty. My biggest complaint is there often a wait to be seated because of crowds.

2013 marked the first year I have ever experienced an Outback restaurant. We have visited on a few occasions and have never been disappointed, actually quite surprised. We have found the service to be attentive and courteous on each visit. Our food prepared properly and a better quality that had been expected. If this is an example of all Outbacks,... More

Ate around 9:30 on a Friday night. We were seated immediately and waited on quickly. My wife and I ordered our steaks well done. They were brought medium rare. Our waitress took them back with an apology. The manager brought our new perfectly cooked steaks to us and informed us that our meals were on the house. She even offered... More
