Being a long time fan of the Alice Springs chicken, we go to the Outback at least twice a month. My husband generally gets the steak with some special deal (like unlimited shrimp) and is always pleased with how well it is prepared. We always...More

We went to Outback because we had a gift card. Generally don't like chains. We were pleasantly surprised at the lunch deals they had (open Friday only for lunch during the work week) Several options for $8.99 and $9.99 that had a fair amount of...More

This is the first we heard of this, but their brownie thunder is a flourless brownie. The server was very attentive. We will be back.

The filet mignon was very tender. Better than I've had at outback. The mommy meal was very good and comes with cheesecake. Was a little cold inside though

Everything we ordered was average - greasy blooming onion, strange tasting crab-stuffed mushrooms, spicy chicken tortilla soup, good salad. Filet came out on top of fried, greasy hash browns and shrimp were over-seasoned and over-cooked. There are better steak houses.
