Australian tchotchkes and brews give this quintessentially American restaurant a distinctive Down Under flavor.. 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.
Good atmosphere, friendly service, consistently good food. Ask for the honey butter with your bread, it makes all the difference. A bit pricey, especially for the catch of the day, and you always have to wait for a table at peak dining times. However, they do allow call ahead seating.
