Chain Restaurant Success 1/28/2009

Outback Steakhouse is one of the best chain restaurants around. The food is absolutely delicious, and I highly reccommend for everyone to try out their cheese fries. It's so good. Atmosphere is great, but the service is a little slow, but I managed to look past that because of the quality of the food. more

A good experince with good food. 10/4/2008

I had a late lunch here today and while the food was very good, the service left a lot to be desired! The place was really not that busy and actually there was a lot of staff, however to get anyone attention, that was another story. Pros: food Cons: staff more

Like watching a close friend go insane ... 7/24/2006

This Outback used to have PRIME filet on their menu. Back in the day, the steak was seasoned, seared and cooked to perfection. And well under half the price of any other PRIME filet in the city. It was the best PRIME filet in the city at the BEST prices. Unfortunately, first they removed the PRIME from the menu, and then they removed the BLACK ANGUS that replaced it. Their standard beef is, unfortunately, standard. What was previously a culinary delight is no longer available. Their new menu consists of items slathered with sauces and smeared with other things like mashed potatoes. Not fun. That aside, the wait staff is generally excellent and well trained, although one or two have fallen through the cracks. Unlike the pricey steak houses, their steaks come with all the ""fixin's."" The steaks are also comparatively inexpensive, even coming with ""full menu"" (salad, vegetable and bread) rather than a la carte, but the quality of meat is no longer what was once available. If you go, make sure to order their steamed vegetables with your meal as they are cut fresh daily and cooked properly. Their salads are very good and come with fabulous croutons prepared and cooked on premises, also on a daily basis. You will not have the atmosphere of Sparks, Uncle Jack's or Smith and Wolensky's (I have never seen unattended children run through those establishments like they were playgrounds, for instance), but obnoxious over-paid jewelry-laden Rappers and their loud entourages won't be ""slumming"" at a reasonably priced restaurant like the Outback, either. Highly recommended. Pros: Good service Cons: Occasional screaming children with inattentive parents, occasional loud parties of patrons who should not be allowed drink in public. more

Brrrrrrrrr......its bad 1/30/2005

On a recent visit to this restaurant, it seemed that there was some kind of problem with the heat. We could practically see our breath in the restaurant! Even the waiters were walking around shivering. When we complained to the manager, he assured us that he would turn the heat. What happened? It only got colder. I was so cold I could barely taste my food.... which I guess was a good thing, since it was so awful. The ""prime"" filet was rubbery and over-seasoned, the ribs were cold and salty, and the french fries were limp and soggy. Pros: close to my apt, inexpensive Cons: no heat, unappetizing food more

Great 6/10/2004

This place is the best right down to the salad dressing. The waiter was very friendly and we were served very fast. Definitely a great place to dine in thecity. more


Friends & I have been to this Outback about 15 times this year. Always good service, always awesome food. Cheap drinks & beer. Waitress actually talks to you. Great place to go out before you go out for the night. No outside seating though. Manager has stopped by almost always to check up. Feels like the Outbacks at home. If those of you are religious to Citysearch like me - Outback should def be on your Sun-Thurs list & before going out list. Pros: not usually a wait, great NY drink prices, dependable Cons: , low music, dark more


I had the WORST dining experience here ever while with boyfriend and parents. First, the waitress forgot drinks and finally arrived 25 minutes later with two flat sodas. When soup arrived, it was cold. Ten minutes later, the microwaved french onion soup returned only to be LUKEWARM!! We sent it back again, and it was then we realized 1) our bread never arrived, and 2) our free re-fills were never refilled. ALL THIS AGITA was compounded by the fact that everytime the door to this bat cave opens, it shudders througout the entire restaurant with a THUD. Two of us likened the sound to that of a car backfiring. Finally, we spoke to the 20 y/o manager about the hellacious service, & all he gave us were bloomin' onion coupons - as if this country isn't fat enough! E-mail me for the coupon - I'll never return there! Pros: free water, close to my apartment Cons: close to my apartment, dimly lit bat-cave, AWFUL service more

Great Service 5/15/2003

Really great service. The Manager even came over and asked us how things were going. I don't think you can beat $2 drafts during Lunch. more

FINALLY AN OUTBACK!!!!` 10/31/2002

Everybody loves Outback but nobody really knows about this Outback so there is hardely ever a wait. I would get in now before people realize its there. They have prime steak so its the same thing as Wollensky but for half the price with sides. The service was great. I would reccomend it to everyone. My girlfriends and I went there for happy hour and then stayed for dinner and it was delicious. Youre wasting your money at a rip off steakhouse for the same steak and better service. FINALLY AN OUTBACK IN MANHATTAN!! Pros: great steak, service, drink prices Cons: small smoking area more

Owner Message

  • Inspired by the adventurous spirit of Australia, Outback Steakhouse has been an innovator in the restaurant industry by creating bold, iconic flavors served in a quality casual environment.


  • 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.
