So, it was Mother's Day evening and we were looking for a place for dinner. Every other place needed reservations and those were filled. We stopped at Outback and to sit in the bar area was only about 15 minutes. We actually sat at the bar and it worked just find. Eve & Sara were the two bartenders and both... More

The service was terrible, but the food was even worse! My steak was almost cold and it tasted horrible. When I got home I threw up everything! I would not recommend this place to anyone!!

Several in our group were in the mood for a steak & they were not disappointed. Quite busy on the night we visited & had to wait 20-25 minutes for a table.

We had a lovely dinner at this restaurant on our son's birthday. This chain offers very good steaks at a reasonable rate and the ambiance is good. We had Mr. Moshe on our table and he gave very good service.

I have eaten here many times and completely satisfied yet now....Steaks are not the quality they were and the price is to much for what you receive...

The service was great. We spilled our wine and they filled our glass for free. The steaks were undercooked for what we ordered so they grilled them longer and provided another side.

The staff is friendly and the waiter was personable. We were seated quickly, as we chose a table in the bar area. There was a very short wait for the main dining areas. Bread is brought warm to the table and instead of the Bloomin' Onion, this time we opted for the smaller version - the Bloom Petals. For two... More

Outback has an excellent lunch menu in the 7 or 8 dollar range. Their steaks are very good and their salmon is outstanding.

Even though there is a waiting line (at 6:00 PM), they move you in pleasantly and quickly to a booth where possible. Across from us the staff congregated and sang a wishful happy birthday to her. Noise level is not a factor here, and we enjoyed good conversation. The "Bloomin' onion" beats out the restaurant in Glenview, which is supposedly... More

Had the steak and lobster tail special at the Outback in Skokie. It was quite reasonable and very good. The service was great. I ended up traveling to DFW metroplex in the same week and chose to eat in another Outback in Hurst, TX. It was as good as the one in Skokie, IL one. I also traveled to Orlando... More
