Felt like some red meat and fries and I have always been happy with Outback. I know the meat is good and fresh and enjoyed my meal. Walked out of the restaurant full and completely satisfied.

After we were greeted by a man who could have been Isaac Hayes, we were sat right near the front door, which, honestly, is never a good sign for good service to come. Boy were we wrong. Our server was prompt, helpful and right on point with refills, replacements on the bread and asking if we needed anything else. The... More

4 of us went to this Outback for a dinner on a Friday. Got there early about 5:30. Sat in booth by bar. Did have a good customer base, but not overly busy. All the food was very good. The wood grilled salmon in particular was excellent. If you see any of the dark meat/blood line under it, remove it... More

Stopped in while driving through Austin. I ordered the small steak with a grilled lobster tail. The tail was VERY small and over cooked. It was like eating rubber. The manager came by and said that was the normal size but he would get me another one. He did bring me one and that one was not any better. The... More

Ordering Outback for a quick to-go meal has become something of a regular occurrence for our family these days and I am thankful for the ease in which I can order our steaks, sides of broccoli, and baked potatoes.

The steaks are a great deal here, especially for the kids meal. Your kid can get a sirloin for a reasonable price. The entrees are reasonably priced as well and include salad and side. If you want a quick steak fix, this is the place. The desserts are yummy if you get them as well, and there is Foster's beer.... More

A co-worker and I had lunch at Outback Steakhouse on a Wednesday. We arrived at 12 pm. The restaurant's tables were about 10% full. We both ordered lunch specials. I ordered the Alice Springs Chicken Quesadillas with a dipping sauce. I ordered the Chicken Tortilla soup as the side. $7.99. The quesadillas and soup was tasty. My co-worker ordered the... More

We were promptly seated in a comfortable booth. The waiter was very attentive with out being overly obtrusive into our meal. This was as good a meal as we have ever had in a restaurant. The atmosphere was quirky but good. Glad that we decided to go out to dinner - here. Once all of the unruly children and their... More

My wife and I are steak lovers! So we decided to give outback steakhouse a try due to some new TV ads about their steaks. We have not eaten at outback steakhouse in a few years. The facility is clean and what you would expect at outback. Staff is friendly and eager to please. The bread is wonderful! But the... More
