“Not as Good as It Once Was ...”
Review of Outback Steakhouse

Outback Steakhouse
Ranked #142 of 268 Restaurants in Lake Charles
Cuisines: Steakhouse

Reviewed April 8, 2013

Food, prices and decor get a B. Outback Special Sirloin and 4-course special at $15 is a great deal. However, the quality of service has waned over the years - give it a C/C-. I know this is casual dining, but wait staff needs to be trained better, especially if a guest is having a 4-course meal. Great service is about anticipation, timing and execution. Come on guys!

Came in a week night for dinner and was seated immediately. The service was prompt. I had the Chicken on the Barbie which was splendid. Husband got the Seafood Mixed Grill. Both dishes were very good.

I think it was the piece of gum (used) stuffed between the wall and the seat that initially turned us off. We did report it to the manager--he could have cared less! We have not been back.
