Pleasant casual atmosphere, very good food, great service and reasonable prices

Outback has an excellent lunch menu in the 7 or 8 dollar range. Their steaks are very good and their salmon is outstanding.

The staff is friendly and the waiter was personable. We were seated quickly, as we chose a table in the bar area. There was a very short wait for the main dining areas. Bread is brought warm to the table and instead of the Bloomin' Onion, this time we opted for the smaller version - the Bloom Petals. For two... More

Even though there is a waiting line (at 6:00 PM), they move you in pleasantly and quickly to a booth where possible. Across from us the staff congregated and sang a wishful happy birthday to her. Noise level is not a factor here, and we enjoyed good conversation. The "Bloomin' onion" beats out the restaurant in Glenview, which is supposedly... More

Had the steak and lobster tail special at the Outback in Skokie. It was quite reasonable and very good. The service was great. I ended up traveling to DFW metroplex in the same week and chose to eat in another Outback in Hurst, TX. It was as good as the one in Skokie, IL one. I also traveled to Orlando... More

My husband and I went for our first time to The Outback in Skokie Il. We specifically went for their steak & lobster special for $15.00. Don't get me wrong, we also eat at Bob Chin's, Ruth Chris and Mortons. While I didn't expect anything near the quality of the previously mentioned restaurants we were certainly pleasantly surprised at how... More

In the mood for onion, get a blooming onion. Convenient, tasty, affordable and serviceable. You never go wrong.

At first, I hadn't planned on writing a review and then I thought if it was good why not. There are certainly a lot of arguments about going to chain or franchise restaurants, but I have always felt that the Outback had a pretty nice assortment of good food, with some interesting variations. We were seated immediately, even though the... More

It is always a challenge to write a review of a chain or franchised restaurant. Most of the time the food in one is exactly the same as another. The only changes one can expect to find are in the service or the location. In this case I found the changes in the food too, and this made me a... More
