I tried the "challenge" but sadly failed! A whole massive 1kg steak in under 30 mins although beautifully prepared and cooked my eyes were too big for my belly (although others would argue)! Dining on the deck either night or day is magnificent overlooking the river with the lights of surfers paradise as the backdrop - truly memorable. Great food... More

I visited the place on a quit mid-week evening, sitting outside, overlooking the river. Not such a common extra in this part of town that is still suffering under it's development. Maybe that's why I take the bit over-sauced but good tasting ribs as they were. Forget the chips, forget the salad, enjoy sitting outside with typical Aussie style ribs.... More

The children's entertainment area was great. The food was really nothing flash but Ok. The kids spag bol. needed more sauce. The kids calamari was just squid rings but there was plenty of food for all. The steak was cooked medium as requested and enjoyed.

Been a while since we went there but will never forget it - Sticky floors and tables - nothing worse. ewwwwww Food disappointing. We had ribs and Chicken parma. Our daughters lemonade tasted very strange. I think the whole place needs an overhaul.

Great staff and great food. Fantastic area for kids to play while parents sit back, relax and enjoy a great meal surrounded by a great view.

I ordered the chicken schnitzel it came out with dry flavourless chips and no sauce or gravy. The chicken was dry. My husband and two guests got the Angus burgers and didn't finish them as they were dry and flavourless. We got the salt and pepper squid which tasted soft and microwaved. The kids got a microwaved pizza. Disappointing as... More

My steak was over-cooked and dry. The salad was soggy and unappealing. My husbands ribs were drowned in sauce which was over powering and he couldn't finish his meal. The high chair for my baby was very dirty and none of the clips worked to secure her in. May not be a huge issue to other people but for me... More

On our recent honeymoon, we were on the Gold Coast. My husband has been searching for ribs that can match or better ones that used to be on a menu in a hotel he frequented with work. We have honestly searched NZ and Oz for some that even compare... so while at Outback Jacks.. I finally heard the words I've... More

Went on a Monday night in January for my grandson's 19th birthday and we all just loved it! My porterhouse steak with mash and salad was to die for and the others enjoyed their ribs, wings and eye fillet. Sitting outside at sunset by the river was a lovely experience and our waitress couldn't have been more helpful or courteous.... More

I've been here for a dinner with my girlfriend on a monday night. It was a very peaceful place to eat with an amazing view on the Gold Coast skyline and directly on the river. Steaks was really good for the value and everyone of the staff was gentle and really cozy. I'll been there again for sure!
