You can't leave Outback without being very full! My girlfriend and I recently ate here. We actually took a long time to decide on entrees and received our delicious bloomin' onion before even deciding on entrees! We told the waiter one more minute to look at menu and he did not return for 5, so that was a bit frustrating. It was also a Monday night and there were 4 tables total (it was 9pm). I ordered steak tips ordered medium and my girlfriend got the big Ribeye ordered medium rare. Either the waiter (repeated and stressed warm pink/red bloody steak) messed up or the cooks did, but mine was definitely more rare then hers. Mine was bright red and her steak was pink. We could hear the cook(s) yelling "let get these last orders out so we can go home", so we felt uncomfortable sending both our entrees back (especially after watching movies like Waiting). Otherwise I would have liked mine cooked a bit longer. She said her steak was okay and in addition to wanting it more red inside, it was really fatty. I tried some and honestly I have recently ordered RibEyes at two different Ruby Tuesdays (swansea and middletown RI) and not only are they cheaper ($18 vs Outback $24!!!), but it was less fatty, and tasted better! My steak tips were okay but the Teriyaki sauce didn't taste that great. We both got sweet potato fries and they were really dark/nearly burnt. The mash potatoes and rice was good. We of course also enjoyed the Outback bread at the beginning and enjoyed the bloomin' onion. Although, the Bloomin onion also wasn't as good as usual. It was really dark and a lot of the pieces were clumped together making it difficult to tear off a reasonable piece of the bloomin onion!
Overall we were a bit disappointed. We wanted to come due to wanting some steak but her Ribeye was excessively fatty and my tips weren't cooked to my liking at all, nor was her ribeye. The service was a tad bit slow and the food is overpriced. I will always love the Outback but I won't be rushing to return back.
