“Great, fast dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

We were running late for dinner and happened upon Outback. It was 9 p.m. and they close at 9:30, we were famished! We were seated, our waitress came right after that, we ordered our drinks, appetizer and dinners, it wasn't 5 minutes and the appetizer and drinks came out, delicious, dinner salads, bread, then entree's appropriately spaced. Our steaks and pork chops came out well done as we requested.

We never felt rushed, we enjoyed every bite.

“Exceeded Outback Standard”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2012

Great Service. Great Price.

Bread warm right from start, not just the second loaf.

Great Ceasar Salad, dressing not to thin or watered down. Best Ceasar from any Outback location in over a year.

9 oz. Filet great piece of meat. Exceeded Outback Standard.

Management, please teach other bay area locations your standard.

“Reliable Quality Food - Add on Lobster Tails for $11.99 a joke however!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2011

We have dined at Outback for many years in many different locations including San Jose, Reno Nevada and Guam. The Rack of Lamb is great, Rib Eyes tender, the Prime Rib cooked to perfection,and the Blooming Onion worth the cost. Service has always been consistent even when crowded, and the price point for the meals about average. Frankly, we enjoy the place and don't see any decline in service or portion size as others seem to complain about. We do however suggest that you AVOID the add-on Lobster Tails available for entrees at $11.99 as they a the size of a small shrimp with about three bites to a tail. Certainly NOT worth the price.
