The food is okay. Price is kind of high compared other location. Not impressed.
Australian tchotchkes and brews give this quintessentially American restaurant a distinctive Down Under flavor. – In Short
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.
Reliable Outback – I have frequented this Outback a few times. The service has been consistently good and the food is always good (if not predictable). I will always recommend Outback and this particular location is predictably good.
Too Crowded To Be Great Anymore – Outback was great when it opened but the quality has suffered over time. There's hardly a time when it's not jam-packed and the wait is eternal. Eating in the bar used to be fun but it's not anymore; it's just too darned crowded. I still love the Wallabee Darned and the Outback Special, but find I go there less and less frequently because of the negatives. It's a shame. With the packed restaurant, bar and waiting area, the noise volume is pretty high as well.
SoSoBad – The steak was over cooked, made reservations early, still got seated next to the bar, by the bathrooms and the kitchen. I won't ever return.
