Later dinner on Friday night.

I ate at Outback Steakhouse Poway CA on Friday October 2nd night. Because it was so later when I got to the restaurant and saw lots of people waiting outside that mean the restaurant should be good enough. I wait for about 30 minutes to get to the table and that was 8:10 pm. The waiter's service... read more

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

We've recently become regular customers of the Poway Outback. We don't enjoy spicy, peppered foods and their option to go with unseasoned foods is greatly appreciated. The steaks have been tender and juicy and the sides plentiful

Upon arriving at Outback Steakhouse at 5:20, we were told we would have to wait until another server came on which seemed outrageous to me. Three of us ordered the 6 oz sirloin steak and one ordered the 9 oz steak. They placed the order wrong, and I asked if the server was sure of the order. She said she... More

The nice part about the Outback Steakhouses is that you can always expect and get great service and great foods. Love their pumpernickel bread mini loaf that they serve warm, right of the oven to you. Steaks are always delicious, and love their salads and their bake potatoes. Highly recommend.

I have been this restaurant customer for many years, first in Florida, and now mainly in San Diego. I love the way they treat you, their food and fair prices. Their Onion soup is excellent, their Cesar Salad as well and their Salmos too, but what I really like is their Victoria Steak.

To me the steak is okay, nothing spectacular. But the Mahi Mahi is wonderful! Make sure you try the Wallaby Darn - a great blended drink with peach schnapps and champagne. It's often loud and has bad lighting, but if you don't mind the crowd it's a good place to eat. Beware that the pink lights may make your chicken... More
