The thing with American chain restaurants, is that you know what to expect, and this is the beauty of a regular meal in the Outback. Service staff very professional, nevertheless not knowledgeable in relation to Khobar or the restaurant market.

Overall good experience.

Been here quite a few times and i must say its pretty good. They do have an interesting menu.For starters i would recommend the Kookaburra Wings that was awesome!!. On to the main course ,Tried the Alice Springs Chicken® and must say it was really good. i also tried the Ribeye Steak. It was good but felt it was a bit over cooked. Guess they literally got it "Well Done".
Overall its a good place and worth checking out...

We were staying at the hotel around the corner for work and went out looking for a quick bite to eat on Thursday night. This place was very close and without much enthusiasm we decided we might as well. I’d never eaten in an Outback before so I wasn’t sure what to expect. Inside the place was quite quiet although had sports playing on the televisions, we took a booth and quickly found ourselves being a little bit overly served by waiters – just slightly too keen for my liking and a bit too quick to keep coming back to our table.
The food itself was OK, but nothing more. As with many chains it had no real individuality to it and the main selling point was that it was solid and gave you plenty of fatty food. I didn’t dislike the food but it had no flair to it, nothing had any specific taste or color to it and it left me with a rather tiring fullness of the type that lingers for hours rather than satisfying.
If you are missing the West and are looking for an easy familiar chain restaurant delivering the sort of food that endless chain restaurants deliver then this Outback will be good for you. Others would do better to hop in a cab and head more into town for more variety than exists in the strip area around Le Meridien hotel.

This place is one of my favorites!

Their soups are just AH-MAZING! You should try them.
Steaks are very good, they are the best here in Sharqiya.
