Overpriced

The Ahi appetizer was great. The food is too expensive and you will have a wait if you go after 7:00pm. Not worth the wait.

We've never been to an Outback before so maybe they are all like this. The portions were teeny weeny and thus, overpriced, though the dinner prices were comparable to everywhere else we had been. The service was decent though.

We are local people and understand the "Hawaiian way of life" but this pushed the limit on this excuse. We both ordered soup and salad thinking we would have an enjoyable lunch within a reasonable amount of time. All too much time elapsed and the waitress all but forgot us and, instead, sat in a booth with other folks to... More

My sister and I were looking for a good steak and after a few fails at other places we tried Outback. Even though there is nothing Australian about the place or menu apart from the names of a few dishes, the food was great. My steak was a better quality and cooked perfectly at half the cost of a resort... More

Our visit here was great and we were looking forward to dining again. That was several years ago and though we have dined here since the general standards have slipped. Our most rent visit was no exception, poor service, mediocre food and staff how just couldn't be bothered. A restaurant that has had it's day as far as we are... More

Booked for a party of 8 (3 days prior) and let them know we would be coming straight from our wedding and that our meal would be a reception dinner of sorts. They Booked a table outside (said that it's much nicer and would be prefect for the dinner, weather was beautiful!) Arrived and we see no table outside that... More

Cold bber, good service at the bar, and air conditioning! Don't expect anything different or exciting from any other Outback you've ever been in.

The whole Aussie approach was quite well done, but the quality of the food and staff made it better.

I really needed to have an opportunity to give it two and a half. It really wasn't poor, but it was below average. Outback is not inexpensive, but acts like it is. For the price, the food is just marginal. One of my pet peeves in eating out is when you order with one person and other people bring out... More
