“Nice meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

After the night before at Macguires, it was always going to be a struggle to find another great experience. When we arrived there was a big queue and we almost walked away when told of the 50 min wait, but the girls suggested sitting on the verandah under the big ceiling fans. It was a great place.

Steaks were great, and manageable too, none of the huge typical American greasy fare. These were the real Oz / Kiwi BBQ deal. Attentive service (even to the point where the server was aware we were finishing the sauce with our onion bulb (which strongly recommend as a shared started) and had it replaced before we asked)

All around, it was a good meal and we would go back again

“It's a chain”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Food is good but nothing fancy... It's a chain so it;s part of that routine... This location is clean, fast & friendly service... Can be a long wait depending the events going on in the area... I would eat there but would always try Mcquires first... They do pass around samples while you wait though!!!

“Average Chain Restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Food is always decent here, but with so many fresh seafood places to choose from, I think you're better off going down along the waterfront and checking one of them out.
Standard fare from Outback that is pretty much the same as any other of their restaurants. The wait was ridiculous, but it was Saturday night and everywhere was packed. Our waiter was good, but kind of reminded me of the try-hard waiter from "Office Space". I get it... you're enthusiastic.
Food took quite a while to come out, and my order wasn't exactly right, but I was with good company and it didn't really bother me too much.
If you want a chain restaurant steak, this is your place. If not, opt for some fresh seafood at one of the local places.

“Good food but always busy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Not much different in comparison to any other Outback--the food is good and their take-out service is awesome but people around here seem to consider it a fancy place and thus, it is always busy.

“Yawn”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Time for a change. Outback has run its course. Steaks are alright but can certainly be beat elsewhere. Blooming onion tastes like they use the same seasoning on them as EVERYTHING else, including the Outback soup, croutons, etc.
Make some changes, and you might bring me back.
