“As good as it is back home.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

We had been traveling all day and this was within walking distance from our condo. The prices are notably more expensive than the Midwest but that's to be expected. I had the quesadillas and they were very tasty. Our server Johnathan was super nice. He was a little slow getting to us at times but not too bad. He gave us 2 loaves of bread that are yummy. We also had the peanut butter pie, yum! The staff was very friendly, opening doors and pointing me in the right direction of the bathroom. I'd definitely go here again.

“Great food, excellent service, but expensive parking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We ate here the other night...a Saturday night. We got there around 8:30pm so it wasn't very crowded. We got a really friendly greeting from the worker who opened the door for us, then by the hostess. Our waiter was the best, his name was Adam. We're actually writing a recommendation to Outback on him. Adam was extremely helpful, cheerful and didn't rush us at all. He answered all of our questions and even pointed out that if we waited 20 minutes we could order off the happy hour menu.

We ordered the 4 course special for $21 which came with a small bowl of chicken tortilla soup, a small Caesar salad, a 6 oz steak and a side. We chose the mixed veggies as our side. The mixed veggies were cooked and seasoned perfectly...broccoli and baby carrots. Our soup was very tasty. Their salad, fresh and tasty. The steak we ordered medium rare and it was cooked perfectly. Oh and the 4th course was dessert, we chose the cheesecake with chocolate drizzled over it. The cheesecake was light and fluffy.

For our second meal, we ordered the chicken and ribs for $19.99. It came with three ribs falling off the bone. The chicken breast was very tasty and moist...they must brine their chicken. We ordered the garlic mashed potatoes which were very good also.

Parking is $5 with validation...the only negative we would note. You can park along the ala wai, there's pre-paid parking there, not sure what the rates are, but probably not less than $3.

“Overpriced!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

Visited and ordered television commercial special, which is aired in Hawaii. Waitress says that specials only are applied in continental United States. Size of steak is pitifully small for the amount of money spent.
Never going back there again!!

“Great Steaks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We love Outback, the food is always delicious and it is family friendly and will not break the bank. They give you alot of food for the price, soup or salad, entree with two sides and the desserts are to die for.
The staff is very friendly.
