I am typing this review as I am waiting for my waitress/ bartender to return and swipe my card so I can pay. I ate here for lunch, had one of the soup/salad combos- pretty good flavor, lacked a little in the quantity department. The service here is HORRIBLE, I sat at the bar for 5-7 minutes before I was...

My husband and I had been eating at Outback on South Lamar in Austin, Texas. The manager Leo Jackson always made sure we had what we wanted and needed. He always took very good care of his customers. The food and service was always great. Leo Jackson moved to the Outback in San Marcos, Texas. The Outback in San Marcos... More

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
