Good, quick service. Waiter asked if we had any questions about items on the menu, and was friendly, including a pleasant look.

I have not been to an Outback Steakhouse in at least four years and my husband has never been, so I figured it was time I went back because I remembered the food as being excellent and the service prompt....man, oh, man, have times changed!! I ordered Shrimp on the Barbie with a side salad and my husband ordered the... More

Keeping in mind that this is a chain steakhouse, I didn’t have the same expectations I would have if I had been going to a “nicer” place, but even my lowered expectations were not met. It is a shame what they did to the meat here. I ordered a grilled pork chop, which came with garlic mashed potatoes and fresh... More

Outback consistently offers good quality steaks and reasonable prices, and this restaurant was no exception. Our steak was cooked the way we ordered, the service was good. Tea refills and extra lemon requests were met with promptly. My salad was a little light on the ingredients, but the bleu cheese dressing that I prefer was abundant. Stay with the steaks.... More

We are not frequent Outback customers. But our last visit was perfect. Waited about 20min. Our server was very attentive, came to our table frequently. Our steaks were perfectly medium well grilled and seasoned deliciously. We love the Classic Blue cheese wedge salad, can find it any were else. We will definitely visit Outback more often.

After a day of shopping, my husband and I chose this restaurant because of its convenient location at the mall. We won't make this mistake again. Just a few exits up the road, we should have driven to the Texas Roadhouse. While my 6-oz $20 filet was ok except for the huge piece of gristle in one bite, my husbands... More

After shopping nearly all day at the outlets, it was nice to get out of the heat and sit down, relax and have a good meal before the drive back to San Antonio. Had to wait for some time for a table, but that's expected, given the circumstances. The waitress was very friendly and ensured our order was out very... More

I know it is a chain, but we had great steak and service. I love the chopped salad and the steaks were serviced as we asked. Happy Hour was on and beer was cool. Waiter was so courteous and attentive. I would go here again when we return to the San Antonio area and the outlet malls.
