Reviews for Outback Steakhouse

Our party of 3 walked in on a Sunday afternoon and were greeted and seated immediately. We found the service and food were excellent! Pricing was fair and the atmosphere was nice, clean and casual with pleasant background music.

First time visiting in the last 4 months. We use to frequent this location but the food and service were terrible. We decided to give it another try and were pleasantly surprised. The food was much improved. I would have given 5 stars but the service was not quite there yet.

I hadn't been here in months, if not years, they have their walk about Wednesday special going on and decided to try. It is steak or chicken, fries or baked potato, beer or soda for $9.99. I went with my mother, and we both had the best steaks we have had in ages. It was cooked to perfection. In the past, it wasn't always the case. Our server was very sweet not only to us, but all the tables in his section. Hopefully they keep this level of service up and I will return.

About Outback Steakhouse

Start off with an Aussie-tizer like the famed Bloomin' Onion. It's an epically large onion that is cut to resemble a flower, then deep fried and served with Outback's spicy signature bloom sauce. While that's large enough to feed your whole table, if you can't decide between the other options then go for the Aussie Signature Sampler which has a bit of everything on it including Bloomin' Onion Petals, Steakhouse Mac n' Cheese Bites, and Aussie Cheese Fries. At Outback Steakhouse, you can choose from 7 different cuts of tender, juicy aged steaks, each one expertly prepared. You'll find filet mignon, New York Strip, Porterhouse, Prime Rib, Ribeye, and more with bold topping options should you wish like roasted garlic butter or blue cheese crumbles. While Outback Steakhouse does steaks the best, that doesn't mean the other items on the menu aren't worth trying. For lunch or dinner, sandwiches and burgers make for another filling and tasty option. You can also find seafood like lobster tails and shrimp. Enjoy them on their own or add them to your steak entree for a little bit more. The menu also features the popular chicken dish, Alice Springs Chicken, a wood-fire grilled chicken breast topped with sauteed mushrooms, crisp bacon, melted cheese and honey mustard sauce. Plus, there are baby back ribs and a pork porterhouse. After indulging in such a fine meal, make sure to save room for one more final indulgence with dessert. The dessert menu features 6 full dessert options as well as 2 mini parfait choices. Get a big dessert to share like the famous Chocolate Thunder From Down Under, a huge slab of pecan brownie topped with rich vanilla ice cream, warm chocolate sauce, chocolate shavings and whipped cream.
