Worst steak I have EVER had..
I want to give this restaurant 0 stars. If it goes thru when I press submit, I will do just that, otherwise, I will give it 1 star, undeservably so.
This was by far, the WORST meal both me and my fiance have had since, I don't even know when. We did pickup because um, sorry, not waiting an hour to sit down for a steak from Outback (I would have been even more livid had that been the case). I had a $50 gift certificate otherwise I would be raising much more of a stink and demanding my money back. In fact, I really want to demand a $50 gift certificate to somewhere else, cause frankly, I am NEVER going back here and consider the 40 minute drive (round trip) a COMPLETE waste of my time.
My steak was supposed to be cooked medium. It was completely bloody and BEET red, as was my fiances.
My "lobster tail" looked more like shrimp, it was incredibly pathetic and also made me lose my appetite, thank you very much.
I am in complete shock that anyone is giving this place good reviews. My advice to anyone that considers THIS a decent steak restaurant, is to go somewhere that ISN'T a chain restaurant - you may be pleasantly surprised by quality of food.
The only saving grace involved in this $45 meal (INSANITY) was the mashed potatoes. Congrats, Longhorn or Outback, whoever you are, you have attained chain restaurant royalty, reigning in the ability to mash up and season a vegetable.
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.
I Love It!. I love everything about it. Nothing is frozen (so they tell me), they have 8 different kinds of home made dressings, the call a head sitting saves me time (why wait an hour when I can wait 15 min.), my kid loves to look at all the things on the walls and the servers "flare", the steaks are good and I love those little tables they put on the bar to make it easier to eat.
Chains CAN'T Compete. Look, it's like this.....this is St.Louis. It's in the midwest. We have the best beef in the world in the midwest. Outback is a national chain. They get national chain beef. It's tough and it's not well aged. The cooking method is inferior to a flame grilled steak. The prices are not fantastic either. Just because it's the only steak you have ever eaten doesn't mean it's the best. Anyone who rated this place the best obviously has not been to some of our better local establishments. Spend $10 more for a party of 2 and I guarantee you'll like it more. If that's not the case then you can sit on a jellybean and tell me the flavor, because your taste is in your.....
Sometimes Superb. At Outback, they know how to cook and season a steak. However, the quality of the meat ranges all over the board. You can order the same steak (or fish) 20 times and you never know how it's going to be; I've had some of the juciest, tenderest steaks of my life there, and some of the driest, gristliest steaks as well. Only the chicken seems consistent. The sides are large and hearty, and the little dark wheat loaves they serve with every meal are wonderful. The steaks are fairly priced or overpriced, depending on the quality you end up with. The service is very casual and informal, by policy, but otherwise unexceptional.
Good, but that good?. #2 on a list of steakhouses crazy. Only a true red meat eater will appreciate the taste of the best meat in town. "The Steakhouse" on Kingshighway Close to the Fox Theatre has the best steak in town hands down. Only a non-midwestern would deny this place because it is small and not as elegant os others. I might have the name wrong I'm not sure, but if it has another name somebody please tell me.
If you want the real meaning of a real steak,
go to a butcher shop and get a quality piece of fresh beef, fire up the grille, season the meat with your perfect touch, then grille it to perfection!
Now, the object is to find the closest thing to that beefy goodness that a good cook can get at home, in a steak house. outback IS NOT one of those resturaunts!
blooming disaster. For the quality of food and service received, that wait was definitely not worth it.
are you kidding???. i have never had a great steak at outback. perhaps an 'ok' steak. the meals are overly greasy and the food is in my opinion marginal. this restaurant is fine if you are looking for typical chain restaurant standard fare... go somewhere else for a fine dining experience.
Poorest Service Ever Received. Food was thrown on our table by a very rude waitress. She was to busy to wait on us because she had friends at the next table. When we asked for drink refills she was unbeleivably rude. Food was cold when it arrived at our table. Will never go back and recommend to my friends to STAY AWAY!
