Not for us pigmented folks – The food is typical steakhouse, but it's the service that was just absolutely shocking. We were seated in a booth right next to a fire exit in an almost completely empty restaurant. Not very happy about that but we just wanted to get a quick snack so we figured that it wasn't worth making a fuss. Then a waiter moved a large wheelchair beside our table which basically blocked the fire exit and our ability to get in and out of our booth. We asked the waiter if she could move it somewhere else and were rudely rebuked. We then asked to see the manager since we weren't about to take that kind of behavior. The manager was no better. He basically told us that we were in the wrong and that not being able to get in and out of our booth was not something to complain about. He could hardly contain his contempt for us and offered no apology. Being Asian I'm used to this kind of behavior in this town, but this type of overt hostility is just ridiculous.
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.
