Australian tchotchkes and brews give this quintessentially American restaurant a distinctive Down Under flavor..
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.
Hadn't been their for ages and now know why. Took three sets of silverware before getting a clean set. Soup& appt's came out ice cold two times. Salad came out with large piece of plastic in it. Nothing done or even said after bringing this up to waitress and requesting manager. Rest. was not crowded so there was no excuse for this. It's a shame, at one time they weren't to bad for a chain.
Save your money and your frustration, go elsewhere.

I have had both good and bad experiences at this Resaurant/Bar --Waiting can be a trial. The beepers seem to work but reservations wood be nice. Who or what is more inportant-- the dollar or the comfort of the customer? I want to feel I can get a seat close to when I enter the door. I don't like people squished into a small waiting space. Bad
emotions can be evoked by being hurded into a corral setting to eat a steak!
whats customer service?. Customer service? Thats something that this restuarant does not specialize in. They have a call ahead service to make reservations and then it still takes 2 hours to seat you even though you called and 1hr before that. The host was rude and the steak was burnt. The side of 2 crab legs that was supposed to be a 1/2 pound? They must have been weighing the water and the pot to come up with a 1/2 pound. There is no possible way that was a 1/2 pound. The only highlight was the waiter that knows most of his earnings depend on the service he gives. Maybe if the host and cooks wages depended on the service they gave everyone would get the best service all the time. Now thats a new concept. I think everyones pay should be based on performance of the reviews they get from the customers.
Ieat here all the time. This place is great I can't say enough about it. The food is fantastic and the service is always right on and right there when you need them.
GOOD FOR THE MONEY. FOR THE PRICE, OUTBACK STEAKHOUSE MAKES A GOOD STEAK. BUT IF YOU ARE JUDGING ON TASTE ALONE, DON SHULA'S IS BY FAR THE BEST, THEN CAPITAL GRILLE. IF YOU ARE ON THE EAST SIDE, THE SEAFOOD CHOP HOUSE IS GREAT AS WELL.
Take it back to the outback. Too pricy for the quality of food, Texas Roadhouse is alot better!!
Melt in my mouth...sometimes. All of my steak experiences (except one) at The Outback have been great. I order the 12-oz prime rib. Sometimes I will order the 16-oz if I want a midnight snack that night. I ask that it be seasoned, and prepared medium, otherwise, they will not season it and it will be bloody. (I am not a vampire and I also don't want E-coli). It is very delicious, tender, and juicy. Go for it!
Commericalized. The food is alright, but very commerical. It isn't a very nice atmosphere. You want a good steak go to Logans, steak and peanuts what more could you ask for.
C'mon Now. It's Outback! It is decent steak at a good price but Detroit and the surrounding metro area offers so much more in terms of great steaks.
