Australian tchotchkes and brews give this quintessentially American restaurant a distinctive Down Under flavor..
Boomerangs, Aussie flags, kangaroo portraits and faux aboriginal art honor the homeland's wilderness, but Outback delivers a polished version of rusticity with varnished blond-wood booths with matching wainscoting and casually uniformed waitstaff. Besides more than a half-dozen cuts of steak, diners can pick from large-portioned entrees like ribs, chops and shrimp or chicken "on the barbie." The Bloomin' Onion, a large onion dipped in batter and deep-fried, is an appetizer with a following.
Average Chain Restuarant. The best thing about Outback is the food and atmosphere will be safe and consistent no matter which state you happen to find one. Large Quantites are depended upon to satisty those more interested in how much than how good.
Very Disappointing. My dates steak was so well done it had to be returned....By the time they cooked her another I had finished my dinner. Even after the redu, steaks were of marginal quality.
Outback?! Yuck!. Their steaks are so overloaded with pepper and other seasonings that the flavor of the meat is obscured. If a steak needs that much added to it to make it "palatable", then I don't want it! Their fries are equally overloaded with salt. You can get the same quality of food a lot more cheaply by visiting a friend or relative who is a bad cook, and staying for dinner.
When one goes to the Outback, there are no surprises.
Steak: Tasty. Vegetables: Done just right. Service: Great and friendly. Obviously our favorite place to go.
Why not McDonalds, too?. How can a mass-market, fast food-type chain wind up on the top 10 list? What a sad commentary on the participants in your survey. Perhaps they don't realize that hamburger is chopped steak; I guess that is why McDonalds didn't make the top 10. They probably voted for Red Lobster and Long John Silver's in the top 10 list of seafood restaurants.
A MUST for the steak lover!. Excellent service and food for the money! I have never had a bad time or meal
Horrible Food. I can't say it any other way. My ribs were dry and over cooked. Like they had been sitting in a warmer all day. My husbands prime rib had so much fat on it. When he cut the fat off, half the prime rib was gone. Go to Lawrys for the best prime rib.
family steakhouse. something for everyone, occasionally i like a good salty steak, this is the place to go for family gatherings.
Pathetic. This is just a chain and does not have the quality of the Palm, Del Frisco's, or Morton's.
