We go to Outback Jacks every year for my partners birthday, mainly because of the venue itself sits in the most beautiful area on the water decorated by Christmas lights, every time we have been it is very quiet possibly due to the overpricing and very average quality of the food.

We came here while we were in Queensland for a holiday. Firstly, the location was amazing! I didn't think we were in the right place! We went for dinner and there are fairy lights and it over looks the water and there's a lot of seating outside. The staff were so attentive and friendly and food service was quick. The... More

Hi, Six of our family members have just attended Outback Jacks in Southport QLD. I had the combo Chicken and Ribs meal. The food was absolutely amazing. My 12 year old son had a kids ribs meal and on devouring the two ribs on his plate was offered another 2 ribs for free. Food was hot on arrival and our... More

This was our fifth visit to this Outback Jacks. The Southport branch has always been great. The food can be a little expensive but the quality of the food, its presentation and their service makes it worth it. Just make sure you go to the Southport branch and not Mermaid Beach which is terrible.

It was like all Outback Jacks. Food acceptable, service a bit patchy. Location on a point overlooking the water was very pleasant.

First of all I gotta say it was a really good experience. Great atmosphere, fantastic service, amazing food!!! The only reason I gave it a 4/5 was because of the t-bone (which was a little bit burnt and tasted mainly like charcoal). Definitely recommended though and must try the cheese chips!!!!!!!! Overall: Amazing food, Fantastic service, average price and great... More

Loved the spot, so pretty watching the boats go past and quiet too, Staff were friendly and helpful, great with the kids (and kids eat free on school holidays). Food was delicious and generous.

Wouldn't recommend or return. Staff were present yet didn't attend to us unless we sought them out. Even then the service was very slow and you couldn't miss their bad attitudes. We waited well over an hour for our meals, which arrived cold, meat cooked not as requested and barely cooked chips. Even the kids free meals (sausages) were so... More
