Outback Jacks is a great place to take family and/or friends. It's children friendly. The staff are very obliging and their service is quick and friendly. Glendale is a great restaurant with great food and smiling staff. The food was good although I ordered a smoky lamb burger and I should have eaten it with knife and fork. The melted... More

This is our 3rd time here with a group of 20 or more. The manager that came and seen us tonight was rude. Did not have alcohol to put in their drinks. The drink blender was broken and on the menu there are crop ribs... Apparently you don't do them. Why are they on the menu then??? For spending a... More

Went here for lunch on a hot day and found the a/c was not working properly. Then ordered a cold beer and it was slightly cold. The wait staff didn't really seem to care too much. Looked overworked and under paid!!! Meals were ok but nothing to write home about.

Was taken here for my birthday, food was nice but expensive, I would have expected better quality and quantity for the price. It was a Dinner time visit so my review is based on main meals and one visit. I would not choose to go back mainly due to price vs meal quality and size.

Average quality food and poor service. Staff were friendly but seemed to lack leadership and direction. We had to wait and then ask for service.

My man & I called in after a big work week for dinner with no reservation. But still got a table & super friendly service despite them being busy. My steak was just cooked perfectly & I'm fussy with my steak being cooked the way I like it lol. It was a beautiful meal & served quite fast too

Not only did we wait 55 mins for our meal, but the steak came out almost mooing still when asked for med to well done. Let me just say it wasn't that busy. There were only 2 tables with people sitting at them near us. I asked if i could get it cooked just a little more so it wasn't... More

We haven't got our food yet but something tells me the worst is yet to come. This place is a joke. Prices are over the top and the service is as low as you go. So far our soft drinks taste like Old sugar soaked socks. Asked for water and got a bottle of Aqua Pura which they may think... More
