After a full day of shopping we definitely needed a wind down with some decent food to fill up on that was not food court food. Great location and I was impressed that they were able to fit our family of ten in such a timely manner. Service was great, family was happy and needless to say the blooming onion... More

I took the family to Outback on Sunday at 6:30. We waited 35 minutes for a table. I had no idea it would be that busy on a Sunday evening. We ordered a "Loaded Bloomin Onion as an appetizer. It is their normal onion with Cheese Fries on top. It was delicious. Extremely unhealthy, but a guilty pleasure. Dinner was... More

We came in for lunch after shopping at the Outlet Malls. I ordered the 6oz sirloin with a side of sautéed mushrooms and steamed broccoli. I was enjoying the steak & mushrooms very much but when I bit into the broccoli, I was shocked that it was extremely grainy. When I squeezed it, the liquid from it was brown. It... More

I am not giving it 4 or 5. Food is good, not awesome. Staff is cool but they need to do something with the kitchen. My family and I always have our food mixed and changed. So that's why we are not going anymore.

Late night dinner with the family. Kinda crazy this was the only restaurant that was opened near the outlet mall passed 10pm. My hubby ordered the porterhouse pork. It was well served but it was very dry. I ordered the wings as my entree. They were delicious. My kids had the ribs and they liked them. The only negative thing... More

After a hard day shopping there is no better way to finish off the day with a nice large glass of Foster's and a great meal. This place has both. It is located within the outlet shopping area so there is easy access and loads of parking space. The staff have always been good and i have never had a... More

Never been to Australia - so I can't say how authentic-ly Aussie the place it is. Fosters on the tap is probably a qualification. It had all the characteristics of a chain. The service was a tad slow. The blooming onion was a great appetizer. The burger I had was good. Like someone said, it is probably a good place... More

The steaks were excellent! They even sent us a free blooming onion email to be used on Mondays and it was the best we've ever had. Really crispy and not too greasy.
