“Unexpectedly amazing seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2009

We ate there on Sunday. The food was excellent. The chefs there must be very skilled, because all the food was really fresh and well-prepared & presented. I felt like it was better than the average Outback Steakhouse, and waaay better than the average chain restaurant (Applebee's, Chili's, Olive Garden, Macaroni Grill). In this vein, I also felt the food was prepared with above-average care. My husband and I were extremely impressed with the quality of both the service and food, especially the seafood. We had seared ahi, grilled shrimp, scallops, and crab-stuffed shrimp. The scallops were perfectly cooked, as was the ahi appetizer. It was of the quality that I expect from authentic Japanese sushi joints, and this is a steakhouse! The wild rice also evinced extra care, with the sun-dried tomatoes and whatever else went into the seasoning. Again, way better than the average rice. Mango iced tea: fresh and flavorful. Prime rib: perfect. Carrot cake: rich and savory. Blue cheese & pecan salad: fresh, refreshing, the perfect size (perhaps a skotch too much dressing). Grilled pineapple: great touch! Kudos on everything. Outback Arcadia really hit this one out of the park on Sunday. I kept asking throughout the meal why we don't eat there more often.

“typical outback...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2007

This is a typical Outback steakhouse located on the main street of Arcadia, Ca. The food is very good, the wait times on weekend evenings can be up to an hour. Very good location and dining option if you are staying in the area.
