We had a family visit. Food was OK, steak decent. Cocktails were awful. The saver was the coconut shrimp and mango sauce. To die for. They need to up their game and review the extensive menu, maybe make the menu smaller.

Marco, one of my favorite waiters there, made sure that the chef in the kitchen understood that I was a "cannibal" and that the cheese on my burger did not have to melt, just flip the meat over once and it's ready! Maybe he put the fear of God in that poor chef, but OH MY GOD......Was that ever tasty!!!... More

Since this is my birthday month, I am being treated almost every day by a friend for a lunch or dinner. Today, however, after having been treated to a Reflexology Massage by a great friend in Boston, I stopped in here for lunch and was so glad I did. Marco, as usual, makes me feel like the most wanted customer... More

Even though I don't eat steak, I can come to this restaurant and find many options for me to chose from that have I have totally enjoyed. Can't beat the price of the lunch combo either.

This Outback is excellent! The staff is quite friendly and efficient. Each of our seven meals was cooked as requested and delivered at the proper temperature. Our delightful server responded immediately to each request and checked on us often. Our guests were pleased, commenting that this Venice Outback was much better than the one near them back home in Fairfax.... More

Now we know why it was three years since our last visit. The server was excellent but the steak and the salted caramel in a skillet left a lot to be desired. Asked for medium on the steak it came well done. The salted caramel in a skillet was actually burned on the bottom. Couldn't eat it.

This Outback steak house was just renovated and modernized. I love their Steakhouse salad. The Sirloins staeak is also good with a side of Teriaki sauce.

This is in an area where a lot of 'snow birds' visit. I'm a snowbird, but I come to town after the other snowbirds have left. Better service and less congestion then. Waitress was Teresa who was good and attentive, and fun to talk with. Got 2 orders of a lunch social for $10 that was 2 steak tacos and... More

We had a nice dinner last night consisting of sirloin steak, baked potato and fresh broccoli. The server was efficient and friendly and the food was well prepared. We were able to have a quiet conversation which is always appreciated.

This is the first in many Outback restaurants we visited that we will never visit again! When we visit the USA we always search for Outback restaurants. The food has always been great in all the restaurants from this chain that we ate at. Last year we loved the 'no worries Wednesday' menu. Lucky for us it was still on,... More
