A step above your budget steak outlets
I came here with a Groupon, because steaks that weren’t from iSteaks or Astons were just way over my small budget. I saw many diners enjoying complimentary bread that I couldn’t have, much to my dismay.
Nevertheless, the food here is good, Groupon or not. I had the Black Pepper Steak Bites, which were served randomly done. Having ordered two of that same dish, we discovered that one had medium while the other was well done, which wasn’t much of a problem given my family’s different tastes. The steak bites were already scrumptious, well above the quality of the budget whole steaks I often eat, and I’d love to come here to try their steaks another time.
With roomy booths and a stylish Australian Outback decor theme, the dining experience here was a great one. It seems that the restaurant offers different Groupons quite often, so do check them out if you have a tight budget!
Not one of my favorites, but passable nonetheless
The standard of the steak would be way below Morton's and the likes, but still edible. My steak did appear on my table being slightly more raw than I would have liked though, so I sent it back to the kitchen. They were nice enough to replenish my side dishes as well, even though I had eaten my way through more than half of the serving.
What I REALLY liked about this place was the complimentary bread and butter that they served up. The butter was slightly sweet, which made for a nice combination, coupled together with the bread. I had a bit of my friend's potato soup as well, which was incredibly yummy and chockful of ingredients.
A great place to hang out with friends, with decent food and adequate service standards.Don't expect anything close to a fine dining experience though - you'll be disappointed.
Outback isn’t a chi-chi kind of set-up. Hearty, robust, down-to-earth fare such as steak and potatos is the order of the day here, and the wild wild west dude ranch décor is an apt representation.
For the price, the steak was competent. I’m a purist when it comes to steak, so I skipped the gravy and just had mine rare with a bit of salt and pepper. I was dining with a big group of colleagues and everyone was intrigued by the giant deep-fried onion which was as tasty as it was ungainly. Portions are pretty big here, which makes almost everything on the menu good value for money.
