Reviewed November 8, 2013

This is a nice location on the second level of Glendale Marketplace, directly opposite the Americana at Brand. They have good price for drinks during happy hour. After shopping around 5PM, this is a nice place for a drink and appetizers.
I ordered 9 oz steak. It was cooked just right to M.R. The lighting is dim, so it is a nice place for couples to go for a nice dinner and chat.
The price is reasonable. Ice tea is kind of expensive - $2.30

Cheap steak comes at a price. As much as I enjoy the atmosphere and the food the service is not always ideal. If you want to bring your family or for a casual date it is worth the visit.

I have had better steaks...The service was good and friendly. Parking is a little difficult, however it is across from the Americana which is nice

We've been to several Outback's and this is our favorite. The dining room is nice (except for the small area to the left as you enter - ask for the "main room" instead). Try also to avoid the really small tables in the bar area, as your server will be the too busy bartender.

If the place isn't super busy the service will be fine. But we have found the staffing to be stretched too thin on busy nights, and while the servers try hard they can't provide quality service.

But overall, we like the fare, and we'll go back (maybe just not on busy nights).

We visited this Outback because it is just a short walk from the Alex Theatre in Glendale where we were attending a performance of the L.A. Chamber Orchestra. When we went inside, we were initially seated in a booth to the left of the entrance. The view is uninspiring here, though it was not our main concern. After placing our beverage order, we found out that a large party was going to be in the area where five tables were immediately next to the window booths.

When we asked to be moved, we were taken to an area of the main dining room that had a wonderful, second floor view of Brand Blvd. Because the weather had been cold and rainy, no one was outside on the covered balcony. After waiting about five minutes, no one had come to take our order. I stopped one of the hostesses as she went by after seating some other patrons and asked her if we still had the same server after being moved. She immediately offered to take our order, and got things rolling.

We received our food quickly, although we still had not seen an actual server again. Our meals, an Outback Steak and a seafood combo plate were both delightful. There was little follow-up after we were served. But, when we were ready to start moving to leave, we had our bill quickly.

I would recommend this restaurant for the food and atmosphere if you are sitting in the main dining area. In the right weather, the balcony patio is probably a lot of fun too. The server was very good, but I suspect the scheduling was too thin for a Saturday evening. When we entered, the seating was less than 40% of the dining room. When we left at 7:10 p.m., the dining room was almost full.
