As far as I'm concerned, Outback has the patent on how to mess up a steak. There are many ways to do it, but this place is the only place I know that has done it in every way. The cooks don't seem to know the degrees of bloodiness between bloody, rare, medium rare, medium well, and so on so you might as well not order steak b/c it's not going to come out the way you want it anyway. The beer steins are made of really thick glass so you look like you're getting a legitimate pint but you're really getting pretty much a measly can for around $7. The bloomin' onion is their signature dish outside of their horrendous steaks, but I'd probably pass unless you want to be drowned in salt. The texture of the onion is great, and it certainly looks impressive but then the salt hits you and you're tempted to pay another $7 for beer to wash the taste away. Outback is altogether way too expensive as previously mentioned, but steakhouses tend to be that way anyway. I'd recommend you just buy a steak from Trader Joe's, season it with salt and pepper, dry mustard, and tabasco, grill it, and you've already got a steak infinitely better than anything Outback can produce. Another couple bucks, and you have a case of beer to chase down your steak and 20lbs of potatoes to mash for a side course. There, from the money you would have spent at Outback, you'd still have $40 to do with what you will, and you still have 18lbs of potatoes left to fry in duck fat or something. Why people pay for this glorified mall fare is beyond me.
Pros: bloomin' onion, but only if you like salt a lot
