Ordered Wagyu burger, slow cooked jack daniels ribs, steak & ribs, skippy dundee. All the food came out cold. The jack daniels ribs smelled bad and had an after taste, the steak had an after taste as well while the wagyu burger was way below compared to the cheapest burger in town. Had the waitress smell the ribs for herself.... More

I am completely appauled by this place! Had one sliver of avocado on my chicken neptune, my chips were i believe 3 times cooked. They were disgusting. My chicken was overcooked and like jerky. I took it home for my dog- and even he would have preferred eating his own food. We were charged like we were in one of... More

last night after the cirque du soliel show at docklands, we came across this restaurant. The place was not very busy, and as we just wanted a quick meal, we decided not to have a steak or burger, instead we ordered an entree of calamari rings for me, and my husband ordered a chicken parma. After 45 minutes, our meals... More

Outback Jacks at the Docklands is now known as Aussie Steak, Burger Bar and Grill. We ordered a medium well steak, and got a medium well steak - FINALLY a chef who knows the meaning of medium well! The steak was delicious but the add on of prawns & fish was not quite worth it - a few pieces of... More

One of the better steak places in the Docklands - though everything "feels" like it's been stored for too long, and not prepared fresh.

My boyfriend and I decided to have dinner at this place as we were craving some steak. We got there and the waiter offered us a seat at the door and it was windy. (7/10/12) I told him I was uncomfortable with this position and requested a booth seat. He told me that a gentleman was occupying the one I... More

Before visiting the Outback Jacks at Docklands I had visited a number of other OBJs locations across Australia and had become quite fond of the dining experience they offer. Unfortunately from the word go this place was a disaster. To begin with trying to get free parking in the Docklands is a joke which means making the effort to visit... More
