Positive Changes to the Menu

I was surprised when my husband recommended we meet up for dinner at Outback, as we had been no so impressed with visits in the past. Their menu has been revamped and I was impressed. We sat at the bar and had a drink first then ate. The atmosphere was friendly and the service very good. The bread... read more

The service was outstanding and the bread to begin the meal was awesome. I love their baked potato and would recommend Outback Steakhouse for a great meal

Our server was training a trainee -- very poorly. The trainee was much better than the trainer! We got one drink -- server not even asking if we wanted another, our appetizer came late and our salads appeared less than 3 minutes before the entrees arrived. There was no time to eat the salad -- unless we wanted the food... More

You would think that a restaurant that specializes in steaks would be up on it burgers. That was not the case on a recent visit. The burgers we ordered were bland, chewy, and of a hockey puck quality. No recognizable taste at all. It appears the bloom is not blooming at this Blooming Brands restaurant conglomerate. This chain appears to... More

My wife and I had visited The outback several times and were never disappointed, Upon arriving we were seated right away and took a few minutes to look over the menu do to the fact that they do change their specials on occasion. Ordered our drinks and the Blooming Onion and we were on our way to a great dinner.... More

The service was pretty good (slow getting our drinks) but the food has been terrible. The last 2 times we've been there, I ordered my steak rare. Neither time was it even close to being rare. My husband ordered the prime rib "rare 1+". His came out medium well. Not only was our food not made to order, but the... More

Outback has wonderful steaks, shrimp and Lobster plates. We always have the small sirloin and shrimp appetizers. We like the pecan salad for $1.00 more and its excellent. The servers are so good, we always time our visit for HAPPY HOUR......We stop there and like the location, food, servers and price..
