Asked for the TV advertised special and was told they were not part of that franchise even though it was a generic Outback restaurant commercial. Offered a meal half the size for the TV price. Manager seemed to care less.

We often eat at this restaurant, who we are with our son, his wife, and children. With a chain restaurant, we measure a location by comparing it to other similar outlets of the same chain. At this particular outlet, the service seems to be a bit slower than other Outback locations. Specifically, the location in La Mesa near our home... More

We have dined at Outback Steakhouse in many cities, and for one reason: no surprises! All Outbacks have the same menu & preparation methods, so you know your steak will be prepared as you like it. Our party Filet Mignon & Tilapia with Pure Lump Crab Meat, and all were served exactly as ordered by the friendly & efficient wait... More

Decent happy hour drinks and special snack food offers. Had good $5.00 happy hour drinks, but the snack food... potato skins, spicy wings. And complementary dinner bread. The bread was good but the other food upset all 3 of our stomachs? (We had eaten a steak meal with potato, salad all the fixings and it was great, maybe happy hour... More

It's just like other Outback restaurants, good food, good service, but everything works following scripts, as in all chains.

My husband and I ate over the weekend at Outback. Food was delicious, portions were great and we were even able to watch the football game! Order the rib eye or the steak!

First time with a complaint on Trip Advisor (sadly). This is our second visit to this Outback, first visit, "blan" food, slow service. Tonight we tried the takeout, kept it simple, 2 hamburgers, 2 fries, 1 order of marinated mushrooms. Starting with the mushrooms, totally lacking any taste or flavor, wasn't sure what it was marinated in! Hamburgers, shredded wilted... More

I ate at Outback Steakhouse Poway CA on Friday October 2nd night.

I wait for about 30 minutes to get to the table and that was 8:10 pm. The waiter's service was good and... More
