“Filet & Sirloin, Good Stuff!”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

Our son gave us a gift card to Outback for Christmas. We just found time to get over and use it last night. My wife had the sirloin, I had the petite filet mignon. Both were delivered cooked as we ordered them. Both were tender and flavorful, without being excessively fatty. Does "just right" fit? We think so. We both had the baked potato, done perfectly with fresh butter for the topping. My wife had the vegetable medley, I had the side salad.

Since both meals were more than we typically eat in quantity, it seems to say something that both plates were empty before we were done! The fresh baked dark bread was excellent, and while I'm not much of a beer drinker, it was a warm evening and the Michelob topped the meal nicely.

Service was very good, but we were admittedly past the normal dinner hour, arriving around 7:30 PM. The wait staff was attentive without being overbearing, and brought us a smile as well, always a good thing.

The value was good, with meals beyond what we might typically order, and the $40 gift card covered all but a small addition for a nicely earned tip.

The only downside was one of the forks at my setting had some vegetable matter stuck to it, but that was very quickly taken care of.

Yep, next time we have a hankering for a good steak, Outback in Olympia will be on our go to list.

“Gotta ask for the advertised special !!!!”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

Daughter wanted to go here for her birthday. We sat at a booth and it was not that comfortable. after an hour my butt was sore and tired.
The food was real good and the waitstaff was friendly. We made reservations and that on a Fri. night is a must.
We had seen the Steak and Lobster special for about 14 bucks on tv but It was not on the menu. We asked the waiter and he said it was available but it only comes with 1 side and for about 3 more bucks we could have another bleh who needs some carrots or corn for another 3 bucks.Now you know.
They also have a gluten free menu that is really quite good.
A bloomin' onion is a must to start off the night and we also had the seared tuna apetizers MMMmmmMMm you cannot go wrong with either (or both in our case)
I think there is a special on Monday where the bloomin' onion is complimentary.
Another nice thing is they provided a really nice complimentary birthday desert with a nice sparkly candle.
Now you have the inside scoop have a great time and GET a Table.

Bon Apetit

Make sure you ask for Joy. Very good service. When a mistake was made, she didn't hesitate to make it right. That's great service.

“Always amazing food!”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Every time that I have come here the food is always delicious! This last time the service was just awful. I felt that we spent most of our visit there waiting for our server to come take our orders.
