Our first Outback has not aged as well as the steaks

Good, but it was once much better. Perhaps success or changes in customer expectations have had an impact - and not a positive one. What was once a delightful experience is now, at least for us, just a competent restaurant.

I remember this place being much better. My steak was tough and my baked potato was powdery and tiny. It just didn't seem like much care went into the preparation of the food. Service was also very disorganized.

You have seen their ads on television, and that is exactly as it is. The atmosphere is upbeat, the service is very good, and the menu has something for everybody. What is best is that you can get a good steak at a very reasonable price.

We did carryout two times last week. The first time we had a great cut of meat. Fresh bread. Second time, hard bread. Not as good of a piece of meat. Even the pecan blue cheese salad was sub par the second night. .. Sunday night might not be the best time to do a carry out order...

I usually don't like to bash the places I eat, even if they are bad, I try to look for something good to highlight. Unfortunately I could find nothing. Here goes, the bread was dry, the blooming onion greasy(more than usual), the filet and crab, tasted like it sat under the heat lamp for at least 8 minutes...both were so... More

I have visited last Saturday with my full family - ordered grilled salmon fish and steak (well done). Steak was well done but it was so dry, no taste a steak. Salmon was not even tasty as we expected. Wings was great tasty and also soup. Service was great, server is friendly.

One of our steaks was ordered medium rare but it was so rare that it couldn't be eaten. Our waitress said that is how medium rare looks. Sorry but we have eaten the same order before and it was perfectly cooked. The food is pretty standard. A six ounce steak looks like it is less than that. The salads have... More

My daughter (4 years old) LOVES outback steakhouse. Great value.. because it is significantly cheaper in price, but still great tasting. We had a nice server ( I think she was knew and still did a good job). We love the bread. We love the steak. We go here often!
