“Good tasting cheap steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Every once in a while my inner carnivore demands to be satisfied. When the urge hits me and it is not a special occasion I head for a local Outback Steakhouse. These large restaurants, with their faux Australian atmosphere offer steaks and side dishes at a reasonable price. Probably the best buy is the small size Outback Special. You get 6 oz. of choice steak plus a salad and side order of vegetables for under $10. If you choose your side dishes wisely, the calorie count is as moderate as the price. On the other hand Outback offers a full selection of fat drenched dishes which will make your cardiologist rich. Choose you own poison.

The meat is nicely trimmed and flavored and usually cooked to order. Send it back if it is over or under done. Teach the kitchen staff a lesson. The waiters are obsequious and over friendly. It is a restaurant suitable for children over 10. The restaurant noise level is high so a few childish shrieks won't make much of a difference.

All in all, a decent meat meal at a reasonable price, if you don't expect too much.

“how many times can you eat blooming onions ?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012

sorry to say, the Mall Outback is substandard to other Outbacks. the steaks appear microwaved and only slightly seared, soggyish. and the blooming onions are poison in terms of health. the burgers are nowhere near as good as 5 guys. the chicken and fish are indifferent at best. so regretably the Nyack Mall Outback just doesnt work well for me...

“Below typical Outback standards”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2010

I often go to Outback when traveling on business for a decent steak. This restaurant is located on the inside of an indoor mall with tables in a fenced-in area. The atmosphere is below average. The meal was poorly prepared. The vegetable medly side dish was way overcooked. The NY strip steak was bland (no spices) and had a funny texture. I think the steak was old (I don't mean aged). While I enjoy visiting Outback, this is one I will not return to.

“no matter where you go Outback is Outback”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2009

The only difference in this Outback is when they had to cook my steak three times, instead of taking it off the bill, told me how lucky I was to get to take their survey. If they manage to cook your food right, and you can eat with your family, it's great.
