We have frequently enjoyed the curb service take out at the Palm Harbor, FL Outback. This evening we ordered 2 6 oz sirloin's to go. Both of the steaks were so filled with gristle that we couldn't eat a least half of the steaks. Unfortunately, once you drive home you are stuck with the product. There doesn't seem to be any recourse in this type of situation. We will never go back. 2 Replies - Latest reply on 06/28/2011Add reply

My husband and I visited your Anchorage location back in January. We hired a baby sitter for our 2 children and went out for a nice dinner. After brewing over which restaurant to go spend our evening out alone in, we decided on Outback. We had not been to Outback since we lived in San Antonio, TX 2 years ago and we were really looking forward to a delicious meal.
The service was fine, but our meal was less than mediocre. We started with a blooming onion of course, my husband had prime rib and I had pasta with crawfish and shrimp in it. The prime rib was overcooked and dry. My dinner was…o.k. It was so much less than what we were used to in our trips to Outback prior to this. It was very difficult for me to pay the check that evening. Typically, it is not difficult because the trip is well worth the money.
I did not complain about the meal that evening because we were trying to have a good evening out. The more I thought about the quality of our meal, the more I thought I should let our voice be heard.
KEY WEST, FLORIDA -- First of all the wait staff was great, my wife and I ordered steaks which we both like well done (on the menu well done is described as no pink showing). Our meal came out in no time well seasoned but when we check to see if it was cooked all the way thru we both had a medium well cooked steak, no problem we call our wait staff over and explained she agreed and remember how we ordered our steaks. About 15 minuets later the manager brings our steaks to our table both steaks are cooked about the same almost looking like car tires and wanted use to check it to see if that was cooked enough, with just short of a smirk on his face. It's sad because, we eat at Outback everywhere and this is the only Outback that we have had problems with we live here in Key West, this manager just think steaks should be cooked to his liking not the customer. We'll still keep going to Outback but not in Key West.Add reply
I ordered the steak and the all you can eat shrimp. The shrimp was frozen and fried very hard. When I pointed it out to my server, she did not take much interest. I used to like Outback, but not anymore. Add reply
MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE -- I went to Outback Steakhouse on union ave. on August 24,2013 around 3:00pm my mom is a pastor so as I our church members told us about the Restaurant so we gave it a try. My mom called a day ahead to make sure they could accommodate a large party they said yes but that was totally not true. We had to move several times in the Restaurant the first waitress took so long with our drinks and when she finally got them they were watered down not good at all then we had to move to another table and this young lady was ok but the same issue came up took 45 minutes to bring our bread and took and hour to bring the food some had meat on the plates with no veggies like I had wigs and ribs the wings were hard but the ribs were ok after they finally got our veggies on the plates our meat was cold or eaten up I will never send anyone to Outback the worst time ever don't come especially if you have a large party they will not enjoy themselves3 Replies - Latest reply on 08/27/2013Add reply
CARY, NORTH CAROLINA -- Ordered a lunch special cheeseburger and salad for lunch. The salad was iceberg with cucumber and a cherry tomato. The dressing was glorified mayonnaise. It was not good! The cheeseburger meat was sort-of OK, however it was loaded with too much mustard. The cheese had no cheese taste! In short, this meal was like a bad fast food meal and cost more plus tip. I will not overspend on Outback mediocre food again.1 Replies - Latest reply on 07/18/2013Add reply
Very poor service. It took the food over 2 hours to arrive. Two of the orders were wrong. I will never use this business again. Add reply
DANVILLE, VIRGINIA -- Myself, my wife and two little girls were at the Danville VA Outback store on Sunday August 5, sitting at the last booth closest to the BAR and the Kitchen entrance. Our Server was Kathy, who we thought was wonderful, we also had the not so happy experience with the Bar Keep on duty Laura. She complained the entire time we were there and right before we left after we had admired our server take care of almost every table in the lounge area, even the ones that she wasn't even getting a tip from, She belittle Kathy in front of the entire Lounge customers, and I will have to say my family and I made a choice before we left that if she is ever at the bar when we come back we will not sit in that area. I really hate to complain but seeing Kathy handle the embarrasssing moment like it was nothing I could still tell she was hurt and didn't want anyone to know....1 Replies - Latest reply on 08/06/2012Add reply
