“Hostess needs to make sure that servers know they have a table”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

We were seated promptly but were totally ignored for over 15 minutes until we asked a bus boy to see who our waiteess was. When Lauren H finally got there she only wanted to take our drink order, we had more than enough time to study the menu and when i said so, she came back with a lot more attitude than i can to take from a server. That pretty well set the tone for the evening, once our food came from the kitchen we never seen her again until she flew by and slide the ticket on the table. We were there on August 14 and left at 742pm.

“Who SHRUNK the Blooming Onions?!!!”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

A recent trip to Temple Terrace took me to this 56th Street Outback Steakhouse with a group of seven other adults for an early evening dinner. We were seated without much delay and eagerly ordered a Blooming Onion to enjoy while we looked over their menu.

Having had this big yummy, eye popping appetizer many times in various other cities, I was (we all were) SHOCKED to be served the smallest, tiniest Blooming Onion we had ever before seen! And I do mean small!

When questioned, our server instantly acknowledge that it was indeed small, but it was "legal" to serve, saying it met their 1 pound requirement. He then briskly (less friendly) offered to see if he could get us a complimentary second "Small Onion". He did bring us another, and as promised, it was just as small.

We all appreciated receiving a second Blooming Onion, but it was sad to learn that Outback's shrinking food portions and declining quality has now reached their famous Blooming Onions too, or at least that's the way it apparently is in this Temple Terrace Outback.

“It's Outback...”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

You prett much know what to expect when you walk into an Outback. This one was no exception. The staff was fine, friendly and efficient. Our food was brought out in a fair amount of time. I had steak and shrimp. The steak was a little under cooked and the shrimp a little over cooked. My husband's steak was tough. The whole thing was ok, not outstanding.

“Great food and good prices”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

I bought the $15 meal deal that includes a soup, salad, dinner, as well as desert. It certainly was enough and everything was great. My husband was a tad bit disappointed in his steak, but he finished it. I would go back here.
