Outback Steakhouse at Skokie

We had a lovely dinner at this restaurant on our son's birthday. This chain offers very good steaks at a reasonable rate and the ambiance is good. We had Mr. Moshe on our table and he gave very good service.

I have eaten here many times and completely satisfied yet now....Steaks are not the quality they were and the price is to much for what you receive...

The service was great. We spilled our wine and they filled our glass for free. The steaks were undercooked for what we ordered so they grilled them longer and provided another side.

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

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

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.

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.
