Three of us ate the "Outback Special" ( a sirloin). Two out of the three steaks were overcooked and not very good. Service was very sloppy. Small baked potato. Not the quality that this chain used to have. The waiter never asked how our meal was. He was not very attentive.

This is a popular restaurant, don't forget to reserve a table if you're more than 2, especially in the weekends and on public holidays. The steaks are good, service is okay but quick and prices are reasonable. "I'll be back"...

we were extremely unhappy on several occasions with the Outback on 17th Street and decided to stop going there...
Finally be gave it another shot but to the other location an went to the Outback on N. Federal Highway..
This time it was a great experience...the place was super clean, service very friendly and above all very professional...the food was absolutely divine...we had the Victoria steak...juicy, tender, well cooked and melting in your mouth. This Victoria steak can compete with the most famous steak houses where you will probably pay twice as much.
This meal made us forget our bad experiences with the Outback on 17th Street where cleanliness was not the forte.
Yes this time we are back to the Outback

Had found Outback to be a good place to stop when traveling as their selection of side dishes, read veggies and salads, is better than many. But had not eaten locally until the place we were planning on had an hour wait. Instead of the noise of the original selection we found that Outback, while busy, has better acoustics so that we did not have to shout to be heard and a pleasant conversation was really possible. And we were seated immediately.

Add to that really good food - I had Mahi with artichoke hearts and veggie sides - and a nice wine and Outback has now become one of our go-to places for consistently good food at a reasonable price. And their happy hour makes it a real bargain.
