“Disappointed!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

We go here all the time, but this time we were disappointed! The lobster tails were puny and dried up, there was only two crumbs of bacon on my potato, drinks took close to ten minutes to arrive. I did call the manager today and he is sending us something to make up for it, though!

“This IS the best restaurant in Vancouver”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

Ill never understand why people negatively review great restaurants. My theory is their opinion changed only when they realized they couldn't afford the bill. If you cant afford great food don't take it out on the restaurant. Outback has the best steaks and everything on their menu is delicious. The staff in Vancouver are awesome and the management is the best around.

“That was nasty!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2011

I am sure it was so dark in there to prevent us from seeing the food because the "bloomin' onion" was oozing with oil and the salad was wilted or perhaps it had been frozen, either way it was grim. Furthermore everything we touched was sticky: the seats, the table, the floor, it was like touching packing tape for an hour. I wish there was seat covers for restaurant seating like there is for toilet seats! I would have used a lot. The server was friendly enough but that was the only good part. The menu was also lackluster, the usual greasy or deep fried stuff and as I said the salad was wilted and pathetic. The reason why this review is five months late is that I was going through some old receipts and felt I had to warn everyone.

“A little noisy for our taste”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2011

Strangely located on the side of a shopping center, the food and service met Outback's typically decent standards. The noise from the bar and especially the background music made it a little less relaxing and conversation more difficult than we would have liked.
