Review of Outback Steakhouse

Restaurant details
Reviewed September 8, 2013

We've walked past this restaurant many times in the past, with insufficient time to have a meal before our flight. Finally, a couple of days ago we had the opportunity to eat, and it won't be something that we repeat.

It started badly when our server dropped a drink on the table, and partly on me, but accidents happen. Our food was slow to arrive, drinks refills even slower, but our starters were good - Aussie fries to share, and grilled shrimp. As for the mains - bacon cheeseburger and grilled chicken, both ok but again a little slow to arrive, and mine was their 'speciality' sirloin steak, which was frankly awful. Overcooked, the steak had so much sinew that it made at least 75% of it inedible. The worst steak I had on this vacation, and quite possibly the worst of any visit to the US.

Hopefully this won't stop us using Outback in the future, but would certainly stop us from using this particular restaurant again.

We had to wait a ridiulous amount of time for our food and ended up having to bolt it down so as to not miss our flight. Average food for the expense. Not recmmended.

I ordered the " center cut " 12oz sirloin along with 3 friends having the same items. There was so much sinue in the meat along with silver skin. We had such a hard time cutting the meat and fighting off the almost choking on the meat. The steak seemed more end cut and more like select or utility grade meat. This has happened to me once before at a ny outback as well. The only reason we did not send it back is because our waitress was the best. We were treated very well considering it was almost closing time. Save your money though and eat somewhere else in the terminal.

The hostess was very nice as was the waitress and back waiter. Both my friend and I ordered the Sirloin Steak and two glasses of Shiraz Blk Opal. The sirloin was very good but the glass of wine was excellent. The manager even came by to see how we enjoyed the meal.

The staff really cares that you have a great experience.
