Nothing special!. I just can say this place is over price. The steaks is not that good and the service was OK.
Australian tchotchkes and brews give this quintessentially American restaurant a distinctive Down Under flavor..
Boomerangs, Aussie flags, kangaroo portraits and faux aboriginal art honor the homeland's wilderness, but Outback delivers a polished version of rusticity with varnished blond-wood booths with matching wainscoting and casually uniformed waitstaff. Besides more than a half-dozen cuts of steak, diners can pick from large-portioned entrees like ribs, chops and shrimp or chicken "on the barbie." The Bloomin' Onion, a large onion dipped in batter and deep-fried, is an appetizer with a following.
Crowded, Noisy, but Great Steaks.
Steaks here are excellent. The only thing I can say is that it is always burnt and I have to scrape off the black charred edges.
The salads and deserts are great too.
This is not the place to go for large groups, as the wait time is at least an hour as they don't take reservations and there aren't many large tables.
They increased their pricing last year, but it's still a good place to go to when you're hungry
When your in need of some "Average to Good Quality" Prime Rib. I've gone to Outback since they opened, yes, other reviewers have stated the "food servers" have a high turn over rate, YOU will get a TRAINEE&ALL that "WAITER LEARNING CURVE" Most recent was with my family, we all ordered prime rib, the salad fine, bread fine, main course looked great, BUT, here is comes: meat was tough, grainy&chewy, ie, you had to expel it out (too chewy) otherwise you'd choke. That was the expereince of my mom&wife. I on the other hand was use to the rough and tough meat, it didn't connect that I was paying for prime rib, I just dealed with it; the table next to me did complain and the waitress agreed and took it off the tab. Fast foward. I did complained online to OUTBACk, Manager who personally called me&mailed me a $25. certificate. My mom once burned vowed never to return (Old School), My wife&I did, we ordered the same menu, the extra large cut of prime rib. Both of us had the best god damn prime rib, I ever had!!! (waitress was good overall) Until you had an excellent cut of prime rib you totally forget what to expect. Third visit was opposite. Both ordered same large cut, but when we compared the meat, mine was half the size/amt of my wifes; She oredered med rare, it came out medium/well, tough&chewy. I ordered rare and it too was abit grainy&chewy. Inconsistancy in the quality of meat, the salad&bread is straight foward. I hate new waiters in training. Waiter didn't check on us, water&beverages neeed refilling, you have to find them, table not cleared. I just want to give a compliment to a young male waiter who always wore a safari hat and serviced the wall area (behind the kitchen wall) he was the best damn waiter, worked there nearly 4yrs but the last 2yrs he has since moved on. He was friendly, attentive, always checked on our table, quickly filled orders, always brought more bread, always refilled beverages w/out asking. OVERALL: "FAIR" PLACE TO EAT
Order anything BUT Steak folks. This is the ultimate review from a picky girl who can cook, and loves good gourmet food with a grandfather that is a gourmet chef, so read up! I've read other reviews about Outback, and some of the dishes selected are all wrong folks! I know that it's a steackhouse, and one would assume their specialty is steak, however friends and I know that anything but steak is great. Prime Rib is easy to make people, it's always rare. My recommended dish are Alice Springs Chicken, be sure to get the honey mustard sauce that it comes with, and appitizer is the crab cakes be sure it comes with the diced tomatoes in cilantro as it adds flavor.
Great Food For A Chain. There are three constants at this Outback Steackhouse; the food is always excellent, the waitstaff is always indifferent to the customers and the place is always packed at dinner. On the weekends you can wait for an hour for a table. Parking can also be a problem since they share the parking lot with the Chinese restaurant next door.
A good chain restaurant. Get the prime rib and get it cooked one step higher than you would at any other restaurant. if you usually get rare them think about getting medium rare. also come eaerly just to park, they share a lot with a couple of other buisnesses. Also if you are going on a busy night, call ahead and get on their list, unless you want to wait an hour.
Outback Steakhouse is to steaks as Olive Garden is to Italian fare.
This chain cannot be considered a steak house, just because they have steak on the menu...so does Denny's, TGIF's, Chili's, etc. And they all are below-average restaurants, including Outback.
Patrons of Outback probably enjoy gas-station-pre-made-sandwiches, as well.
Casual Eatery. Yes, it's a chain, yes, there is a high turn over of waiters so service is not consistent. But the food is consistent and good, price is average for the type of "meat" your looking for. Dark lighting, so if you have young infant kids, forget it, they'll "melt down" double quick.
and honest, unexaggerated opinion.
I've been to Outback a number of times. I've always had above-average service with several different waitors/waitresses. It IS true that you can't make reservations, but most people do not take advantage of the CALL-AHEAD SEATING. Call them on the phone, tell them you're coming, and they'll tell you how long it'll take. Then you can just arive, wait 5 minutes, and you're seated.
The Prime Rib, while not up to house of prime rib standards, is still VERY good - go at around 7 or 8 to make sure they don't run out of it. And the Rockhampton Rib-Eye is available for those who like a lot of flavor in their steak. If you decide to get fish, chicken, or pasta, keep in mind that this is a steak house.
