Good Steakhouse

The Outback is your typical chain steakhouse with a little more class. Things cost a little more, but it is worth it. Very accommodating when I ask for less salt or extra dressing or something like that. Used to have good, fresh salads but those have shrunk as the economy has made restaurants... read more

Having never before eaten here, I thought that I would try one of their specials I saw on tv: their Garlic Sirloin lunch special. The steak, overall, wasn't bad! Cooked to order, I thought that it was a good tasting steak. It arrived with my choice of sides. I had their garlic mashed potatoes. I also was given the choice... More

We have eaten at Outback Cedar Rapids several times in the past year but this time it was a real bummer. Started out with the Bloomin Petals, smaller version of the bloomin onion.It was ok but not near as good as the onion. But the real bummer was my 6 oz. sirloin. I ordered it medium and it came not...

I have always loved the Outback's grilled garlic shrimp. Recently they ran a special where you could add all you can eat shrimp to any entree for $7.99. I jumped on that deal. A Bloomin Burger Basket and twelve platters of shrimp for less than $20 with a bottomless soft drink.

We weren't sure where to go for dinner in Cedar Rapids since we haven't been here in 25 years. Driving through town we found Outback so decided to try. We were greeted with a smile upon entering and were seated at a table that was comfortable for all. Our waiter was one of the best waiters I have seen in... More

My husband and I received a gift card from my sister so we visited Outback for the first time in many years. The atmosphere, meal, and service were pretty good. My husband ordered a chicken sandwich with avocado and he said it was very good. I had a steak and it was not the best I have had, but very... More
