Reviewed December 11, 2012

We make a point of always going here to celebrate our wedding anniversary while on holiday, the Lobster is to die for, steaks and burgers are WOW......but the best thing of all is the brown malt bread that they give out while waiting for your meal, we explained to a waiter one year of our love for this bread and he even brought us a doggy bag to take back to our hotel, with compliments.

“Fab food and service”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

Turned up with no reservation and seated immediately. Food was outstanding and steaks definitely on a par with Longhorns. Delicious! Service was warm and friendly - even with a large table seated next to us

“Food was good.”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

Food was good, nice selection of fish. But be sure to make reservations, because even if the place looks empty you won't be seated without one.

“Very Good...”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

In town for a conference and too lazy to take the hike to Downtown Disney or fork out $20-$30 for a cab-ride to an outside venue. The hotel was full to capacity due to the conference - I had no reservation and was seated immediately. Dining alone is never pleaseant and I was delighted with the exceptional service I received at the Outback - 'Paul' was fantastic with an true knowledge of the menu - I allowed him 'carte blanche' to choose my wine for dinner and ended up having a second glass. Ordered the sea scallops (blackened) with grilled asparagus with a side salad - in a word - WOW!! The scallops (5) were huge; skillfully cooked and with just the right amount of heat - asparagus was perfect with no chewy or stringy pieces - KUDOS to the chefs - have my share of experience cooking the same and wish I could achieve that level of excellence - well done!
This is a restaurant within a DisneyWorld resort so it is very expensive - because they can and I would give 5 stars if not for the price, overall I give the Outback a solid 'A'. Service = Outstanding; Food = Excellent; Price = Not for the un-educated traveller especially with kids in tow.
