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.
chain steaks – A chain is a chain is a chain. Good value, pleasant enough but better thanArnie Mrton's or The Palm? Please
Steak House Blunders! – Me and My wife attended this so called BestSteak House in Norwalk. The food was horrible the service stuck like blue cheese and the management had no control of the restaurant. I have to disagree with this rating. those are my thoughts.
* Out of 5*'s
Best Steakhouse... Hands Down – I don't have the money to go to Ruth's Chris or something comparable, so for my money, Outback is by far the best. The wait staff is always extremely charming and friendly. The food is fresh, never frozen, and they make everything fresh in the store (Dressings, sauces, even the butter and whipped cream!!)
I don't mean to sound like an ad for the restaurant, but I have been a loyal customer since 1996, which is when the local one opened up. I love it!
No way this is one of the best.. – They used to be a great vaule steak house. Good quality steaks. however, about 1 1/2 years ago, maybe they switch owner or meat provider, it totally went down hill, even the overseas chain went along with it. Strong NOT recommended
the good stuff – I have been to several places for steaks and this place has it down. Their food is prepared just as you ordered it with prompt service and festive atmosphere.
high price-poor quality – the worst steaks and chefs going. i have never gorrten a good steak yet.
you'll like the roos – my whole family like it there but can't give a woman a ring there but than again you might
Outback Just Formula Chain Restaurant – Outback is definitely not a top 10 LA steakhouse. It is a formula restaurant that does especially well in smaller cities with less overall restaurant competition. But to claim it is in the same category as Ruth C, Palm, Flemmings (Manhattan Beach), Morton's, Max's......is ludicrous. Outback competes with Black Angus, Applebees, and TGIF.
Too Close??? – My husband's birthday was on a Monday. He indicated that he wanted a steak and his exact words were "a good steak". We had previously discussed going to Outback's for New Years Eve, but yours truly was sick. So I decided to take him for his birthday. Unlike the other reviews I read, we received immediate seating, a friendly waiter (he sat down at the table next to my husband and explained each and every dish we thought about ordering). Afterwards, my husband indicated that he sat just a little "too close", but it was better than him sitting next to his woman. :-)
We ordered, however, was only able to get through the garden salad and bread and shrimp appetizers! We thoroughly enjoyed what we ate.
