Outback Steakhouse Brandon, Florida Complaint - Bad Service And Skimppy Portions At Outback
In the past, my wife and I have enjoyed Outback's service and food. It's been about a year since we ate at the Saint Petersburg restaurant. We stopped in their restaurant located in Brandon, Florida. WOW have things changed! First the hostess tried to seat us with another party in a common seating set up. We asked for a booth as there were many available. She stomped off and threw the menus on the table. We usually go at a time where there is a two for one special on drinks. My wife had a frozen drink which included a second one per their special. I ordered a beer, but no two drink deal on beer?! We ordered their onion for an appitizer. This is now much smaller in size, but still very good. Salads are no longer part of the deal and counted as a side. They have signs on the wall bragging about the crutons used in their salids. Indeed they are good, all four of them! The salad is half of what it used to be. My wife ordered a 6 oz. filet that ended up being a tiny thin slab of meat. My prime rib was OK, again somewhat smaller than usual. The baked potato was half the size I'm used to. It all came to $70.00 including tip. I felt cheated. We will NEVER visit an Outback restaurant again!! Too bad they lost their way!!.
