“EXCELLENT VALUE STEAKHOUSE WITH DEDICATED STAFF”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

Just like many other people, I've eaten eaten their food on numerous occasions and am generally very satisfied. This Oviedo unit is my hometown one. No, it's not Ruths Chris, nor does it try to emulate Ruths Chris. They serve solid food in a fun atmosphere. Last night they went out of their way to provide customer satisfaction on my "take away" order. The food turned out fine, and the service and competent factor was outstanding. Hat's off to Victoria, a relatively new employee who was simply outstanding, Alec, who helped out with my complicated order was also very good. Young people who work in a fast paced, often pressurized enviorment, and are efficient and customer friendly, are not always that easy to find. These two are a credit to their restaurant, a fact that I mentioned to this restaurant's owner who I had the pleasure to chat with later.

“Good Food - Interesting Restaurant”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Outback is consistently good (but a bit noisy) and the decor is interesting. I find most 'chain' restaurants to be generally good overall and this is no exception; however, with all of the 'mom and pop' alternatives out there, try stepping out of your comfort zone occasionally and try something different. Overall, this chain delivers, but some of the food is very salty and heavy (grease/additives?) and some of it sits like a bowling ball in your stomach.

“Normal experience”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

I ordered a bowl of New England Clam Chowder to start and the Porterhouse steak done classic style. Unfortunately, my soup was cold when delivered, but it was still good. I ordered my steak medium and it was prepared very well and was delicious. My sides were a salad and a fully loaded baked potato. The salad was fresh and well done. The potato was hot and tasty. The service was decent and prompt. The server made sure our drinks stayed full.
This restaurant is in a strip mall set well back from the road which makes it a bit of a challenge to find. Parking can also be a challenge with many spots reserved for Take-out customers. There were smokers standing and sitting right outside the entrance which soured the experience.

“A Friday out with Friends & Family”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Decided to go to the Outback in Oviedo, Florida for a night out with family and friends. They were running a special special with 4 course special with a bowl of soup, salad, entree and one side as well as dessert. I had the creamy onion soup, the Outback special and the carrot cake for my meal. Everything was perfect. The soup was delicious and the steak done to perfection. Carrot cake was very moist and also delicious. Server was excellent and saw to our every need. I've eaten here before and never had a bad experience.
