“OutBack- Good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Outback is a great place to eat good food and enjoy a cold one. It would be nice to be able to hear the TV. We eat there every couple of months and the food is consistent. If you have a problem, they take care of it.

“Good food. Needs to be kept cleaner.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

I love eating at Outback but most of them are not the cleanest places.
I love there salads and ranch dressing with a kick and also the steaks and sweet potatoes.

“Good food promotions and excellent service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

The Outback is convenient to our home and has interesting limited time food and promotional offers. We usually eat at a table in the bar and visit about every two to three months. Dewayne has been our server on several occasions and he is always friendly and very attentive.

We don't always order dinner entrees. This recent visit my wife ordered the pork chop which she loves and I ordered two apps, the crab stack and the Ahi tuna ($10.29). As usual the pork chop was delicious and my apps were great. Strange to think a steakhouse would have great seafood apps but the tuna is some of the best and the crab stack ($8.99) is a must.

“second chance and strike two.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Looking for a good supper of steak and this time the sirloin was just as bad as the prime rib we got at a different location, another time. Servers ok...took a long time when there didn't seem to be many customers around 6 pm. We'll find a different place for steak in the future.

“The McDonalds of Steak”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

If you just don't know any better, you'll think Outback has the best steak on the island. You're wrong. I've eaten here a few times and each time I ask myself why. The service is spotty at best. Some servers are great and seem to care about your dining experience while others seem to be half asleep. The portions are small and consequently over priced. The food for the most part is bland in its attempt to appeal to a mass market. The steaks are relatively small - I would love an opportunity to weigh the filet before they are cooked as they seem much smaller than advertised. So small bland over priced steaks are the norm yet there is a line out the door every weekend night? I can only assume that they just don't know there are better steaks and much tastier food available at the many locally owned establishments on the island. I will say this though, Outback does have an excellent bar with tasty drinks. I would suggest Bennie's Redbarn, J Macks or even Bonefish for a better dining experience while visiting St. Simons.
