My SO and I came here last night. It was our first dine-in experience since lockdown, and I want to thank everyone who was there last night for the AMAZING experience.My SO and I both felt comfortable with the new standard in place. The hostess was very polite and nice, and seated us within minutes of walking in the door.Our server was top-notch! Friendly, fast, and provided amazing service. Whoever was the chef last night deserves a huge raise, because our food was AMAZING. Steaks came out perfectly, and the mashed potatoes tastes fresh!10/10 would come here again. THANK YOU to everyone to provided an amazing dine-in experience.

Okay let's see, where to start. Came here as a party of 7 and it was called in ahead of time so we didn't have to wait when we arrived. I feel like the table sizes are not wide enough and I kept hitting the feets of who was across from me. That was irritating, plus we didn't have enough silverware/napkins for all us. The blooming onion we got was just okay, very soggy towards the middle which made it icky to eat. I myself ordered a chicken sandwich which had little to no taste which was surprising cause it had bacon, cheese, and honey mustard on it. The fries were the only good thing. My mom had ordered steak and asked for medium but definitely got more medium rare and had to send it back to get cooked more. Even when she got it back it was better she said but still was displeased with the amount of red. The only one who liked his food really was my brother who got the chicken and extra fries, but for double fries felt like there could be more. No rush to be coming back, thanks anyways.

Food was good. Service was good. Prices were moderate. I would come back. Waitress was very accommodating in taking our picture.

Review №7

They serve big portions and for fair pricing. very nice staff members. Keep it up.

Review №8

Lately I get curbside pickup they never ever screw up my order they're always prettiest polite and very efficient that should not have said prettiest it should have said courteous

Review №9

The Steak was Great, But Service was Pretty Slow & Only Seven People Dining!!!

Review №10

Great food, great curb service. Good variety in the menu.

Review №11

Last week was our first time we came to that good restaurant. But It is surely not the last. We enjoyed the evening very much with the excellent service, with the fine cooking and wine and with the decent price. We will no doubt return there again.

Review №12

I ordered the filet mignon & lobster and it was worth every penny.

Review №13

Tents for outdoor dining during the Covid-19 pandemic. Nice, but they could really use more space.

Review №14

Best food, kind staff members, consistently fantastic atmosphere. They charge reasonable prices and the food quality is great. 5 stars.

Review №15

Very well kept and accessible place. They serve large portions and for economical rates. We liked the meals a lot and the waiters were super personal and informative. Recommended.

Review №16

Well you are told the endless soup and salad are back i was so happy. No more blooming monday anymore. But you can only have potato soup .or if you want the onion soup its an upcharge for every bowlThere will be a soup of the day but nit untlafter 3pm thats when the endless soup and salad is over.

Review №17

Waitress did a great job, ate outside

Review №18

Busy as can be on a Saturday night, but they sat us at a table after a 45 minute wait and there we were. Outback entails some steak options - but tons of seafood also, and some lovely whole wheat bread served with butter. I had the seared Ahi Tuna, which is served raw and is sushi-grade. Presentation was great! Definitely a novel choice for those who are cost-conscious, since I didn't want to shell out a few dollars for a steak. Total bill including tip and drink was $20, a very good price for the meal.

Review №19

Good service, great food. Standard prices. Good value

Review №20

I was really happy to see outdoor seating. Our waitress had to do a lot of extra walking as she was not familiar with pricing. (Drinks) that sould be listed.

Review №21

Very good food. Good low carb and healthy options.

Review №22

The food here is amazing. i love your food. but other people do too. so then i have to wait and that is bogus. that is why it is at a 4 not a 5. sometimes they foget to give me my ranch to my cheese fries. i literally cry from that so don't forget my ranch. thanks.

Review №23

I ordered a burger with ausie fries and wanted the cheese and bacon bits. There was an up charge of $1.79. Pickup the order and then got home with it found out there was no cheese or bacon bits on the fries. Called back for a refund of $1.79 and he wanted me to drive the 30 minutes back to the restaurant. Terrible customer service. They charged me online and they can't refund online. BS!

Review №24

Great food, but be prepared for super long lines for curbside pick up due to the COVID-19 shut down right now.

Review №25

We had a nice experience. My steak was cooked more than I requested. My server Javier S suggested he take it back but I declined. A few minutes later the manager Angie came and and suggested to have them cook a new steak. I went along with it this time. Shortly later a new steak was brought to my table and it was cooked to how I asked for. The people we dealt with were all very pleasant. My server Javier was attentive and noticed when I could use a new beer. The food was delicious and at the right temperature. I recommend outback, will be back.

Review №26

I'm a steak guy. This location is nice and friendly staff. I tried the new season and seared prime rib. It was melt in your mouth goodness! I like the coconut shrimp add on and a lobster tail.

Review №27

We had a party of 5 come in for lunch today and it took an hour for us to receive our food. There was only one server on for lunch (didn't seem very busy for lunch tbh) and the manager wasn't helping her run food. She only helped sit us and get our drink order. Now, I understand a party of 5 would take longer, but an hour?? And the manager wasn't doing anything to help her only server during lunch time. We also had a small child with us, which they should have asked or brought out her food first..but ended coming out last. I will never be going to Outback ever again, which is sad because the awesome blossom is amazing. Which was about half the size of what is normally provided.

Review №28

Service was great and the steaks have the best taste

Review №29

The highest level of restaurant experience from a standpoint of what really matters. Design of space, service and quality of food was spot on. Looking forward to going back.

Review №30

My fiancée and I have been going to this Outback for years now and have always had great experiences. With the Corvid-19 going on, I placed an order for pickup tonight. There was a small mixup with my order, but the staff was awesome and got it fixed right away. Thank you Outback staff! Stay safe!

Review №31

Went here and eat at there bar. The bartender Brian was fantastic! His customer service was incredible and it was a pleasure hanging out at the bar. I highly recommend going here!

Review №32

They offer a nice range of delicious food. I loved dining here. Staff members are always kind, rates are convenient and the spot is always clean.

Review №33

If I could do 2.5 I would. Service, while good, was too much! Felt they were rushing us out the door. We were wanting to hang out a bit. Not busy and tables open, so we were not impeding their seating other people. They rushed our food (both the soup and salad course together at one time) Then before even finishing the soup, the entree arrived. I complained. It was ridiculous. All of us now had soup/salad and entree in front of us. The last time I was at this location with my husband, we said that we would not be back - but a friend wanted to meet here for our monthly dinner - so I went. Won't be going back - Sorry, Outback, just wasn't a good experience

Review №34

Order from this via Uber two ribeye bone in steaks asked for well done both where burnt on the outside and pink in the inside. Got loaded fried cheese was old and bacon looked like something from a can.... Salad lettuce was old. Really ruined my Friday night.

Review №35

Much improved menu. Great steaks, chops, and drinks options. Worth another look, if you haven't been in a while.

Review №36

I will forever love the tuna. Outback has been in my life since I was a kid and I don't think I will ever get tired of them.

Review №37

Went here and eat at there bar. The bartender Brian was fantastic! His customer service was incredible and it was a pleasure hanging out at the bar. I highly recommend going here!

Review №38

Chris was our server, very nice. Food came quick and the Boomarita is a great drink option if you cant decide!

Review №39

Outback is always a solid place for a good meal at a fair price. We had the mushrooms for appetizer. They were lightly battered and not over salted. Very good. I had the spicey crispy sandwich with a side of veggies instead of fries. The sandwich was hot but not to the point where it is all you taste. The bun was a brioche lightly toasted and it had a cooling coleslaw to temper the heat. My wife had the salmon and veggies. Grilled and flakey. The service was outstanding and timely. We have not been here for sometime but will be coming back regularly.

Review №40

Good place. Not much has changed. Good food. Waitress was a bit slow. I'd go again.

Review №41

The Alice springs chicken was delicious

Review №42

Delicious, my sons and I went for our Christmas Eve dinner, funny we got the same waiter as last year,I had Baby back ribs, my son's had Bacon Bourbon Salmon & the other son had a special dish that had Fettuccine Pasta with shrimp on a barbie and some chunks of very tender steak, this location has fast food service, you should go there...

Review №43

Good food, but partially my fault for choosing rare. Service was great.

Review №44

We had a wonderful evening. Excellent food. Superb service. Very knowledgeable about food allergies. We will be back.

Review №45

We come here all the time. Jen is the best hands down. The food is fresh and tasty. They don't hold back on portions and the rest of the staff is pretty good too. You can count on a good meal!

Review №46

This spot obviously knows how to treat their clients. Consistently with a very friendly attitude. The food is affordably priced, regularly delightful and clean.

Review №47

We love this Outback. The food is always great. Last night we had exceptional service. They have a program where you get 50% off one meal after you visit four times which is awesome. This restaurant is also very clean when she don't find often in casual dining restaurants. We are big fans!

Review №48

Bloomingdale il outback impressed me! Victor and ronnie the managers and the owner salvatore are the best.. long story short. Easter Sunday was a mess and they then came threw to make our next visit better! Makes me happy to support a restaurant that cares. Thank u lisa marcellino

Review №49

It was a great visit. Our waiter Chris was great. The steaks were perfect awesome taste and cooked just right. I highly recommend coming out for a great dinner here.

Review №50

Very clean and convenient place. They serve generous portions and for reasonable prices. We enjoyed the menu a lot and the waiters were very welcoming and explanatory. Highly recommended.

Review №51

Had a great time! Our servers were so attentive especially for how large our group was! The French onion soup was amazing. Steak cooked to perfection. Definitely have had better service in the last couple months! Keep it up!

Review №52

There were 7 of us, and we all enjoyed our dinners. My filet and lobster were delicious! We were seated quickly, and the service was very good. I'll be back!

Review №53

Always great. Good steaks but try the pork chops. You'll thank me.

Review №54

The special currently running for steak and sides is excellent. My steak was tender and done just right. Good service. Great service would have made 5 stars. I recommend.

Review №55

The service is always good. The food is amazing, especially the blooming onion!

Review №56

The manager was extremely helpful and nice. My daughter has a dairy allergy and he helped us with everything

Review №57

I have been here many times. They are slow for big parties. Called today to get a reservation for 10. I was persistent but when I spoke with the manager to try and work it out she hung up on me. The girl that answered the told me they were short staffed. I like the food but slow at times

Review №58

Such good food and service. Always come back.

Review №59

My steak was over cooked for my to go order about 3 weeks ago. I got sent a gift card to replace it. Used it tonight, again my steak was over cooked as well as over salted and I got the wrong soup as well no napkins or utensils on my to go order. Very disappointed. Been going there for years and this been the worst.

Review №60

Great service considering the pandemic

Review №61

Incredible food with even better service. I had the awesome blossom (a must) and then the fillet with lobster tail. The prices were very reasonable for a steak house. The server was excellent (ask for Nick) and didn't rush us and was more than accommodating.

Review №62

My husband and I decided to go out for lunch today. Outback came to mind so we went. Overall experience was absolutely satisfying. .. Couldn't ask for a better server the cook gets an A++ . Thank you for the accommodations We will be coming back for a visit real soon.

Review №63

Food was amazing. My server nick also amazing customer service.

Review №64

The best steak and fries ever

Review №65

Very poor service. Had to get up and find waitress for more drinks. Had to ask for more bread. Food was good. Salad was great. Won't be going back anytime soon.

Review №66

Good service excellent food. Always get prime rib rare when available

Review №67

We came in with no reservations, seated immediately, excellent service and great food!

Review №68

Great food and outstanding service. Our server was Nick and I highly recommend him if you go to eat there.

Review №69

Food and service was great! We had sirloin, salad and sweet potato. We finished it off with the salted caramel cookie skillet which was amazing.

Review №70

Omg, the food was great, my kids ribs were a lil burnt but they ate it anyway. Friendly waitress..... Will definitely go back

Review №71

It was great! The food was delicious as always and the staff is kind all as well. It's one of the best places to dine with family and friends.

Review №72

Staff could be a little bit more attentive. Food portions are big and overall good flavors.

Review №73

We had phenomenal service! Dinner was great. The steak wasn't the best cut, but the cook hit medium perfectly. The mashed potatoes had more salt than usual, but I still enjoyed dinner. This location has been my regular Outback, and they are one of the better.

Review №74

The food here is what I would expect. Middle of the road corporate quality meals. My ribeye was not the best example of the cut. It was a little on the tough side and nearly devoid of marbling.The beer selection is behind the times. A few craft beers beyond Sam Adams would be nice.Overall I felt that those place was on the high side of cost for what I got. It wasn't bad, but I don't think this will be a regular pick for me.

Review №75

The food was hot. The discount coupons were appreciated

Review №76

We made a reservation a for 6:30 and was not seated for an hour. Awful service and the front desk was rude when asking about when we could expect to be seated. What is the point of a reservation? Then the front desk told the next party that came in without a reservation they would only wait 20 minutes! Never coming back.

Review №77

The food is always great, and the servers attentive and friendly

Review №78

A fun and delicious Aussie-inspired restaurant that offer great steaks and many other choices!! They always have some kind of special or limited time promo that keeps me going back time after time. For appetizers I would recommend the Aussie sampler that has several Outback appetizer favorites. I absolutely recommend their seasoned seared prime rib!! Its so mouth watering and tender. If you like pork, my fav is the pork porterhouse. Is a fun cozy environment to bring a date or a group of family or friends! Whatever you're in the mood for, you cant hi wrong because mist everything is delicious and worth a try!

Review №79

My boss my supervisor my line lead and I walked into Outback for steak and lobster french onion soup appetizers and desserts we were served right away with our beverages our food was amazing nobody was disappointed and the bread-and-butter just kept on coming the price was inexpensive and there was no wait time we work right down the street so we are regulars and we absolutely love the Bloomingdale location keep up the great work amazing work staff amazing service amazing people we're glad that we go there on our lunch hour.

Review №80

The only thing I find good on the menu is the burgers anything else we have ordered in the past it seems poor quality and non properly cooked especially the steaks I wish the corporate was see that it's a shame because they have such a nice restaurants and plenty parking!

Review №81

We had not been to this location in a long time for a number of reasons. But this experience will bring us back. The staff was terrific and the food even better!

Review №82

I went to this Outback for dinner with my family and our waiter Shane was amazing. He was very attentive and made sure we were taken care of throughout our time there. I will most definitely return with my family again and hopefully we get the same waiter again.

Review №83

Steak was fatty and full of gristle. Came for the unlimited shrimp and was never offered even a 2nd portion. Also server never checked on us so no additional rounds of drinks were had. $120 for 3 people was not worth it.

Review №84

Might sound weird but try the chicken tenders!! they are so good and the honey mustard is amazing

Review №85

Great Service from Chris. The food was really good! My husband was impressed with the tenderness of his steak, the seasoning and the flavor and taste! Salmon was good also!

Review №86

They were very busy so we had to wait a bit even though I used the online wait list. Food and drinks were all very good. Waiter was attentive as he could be given the crowd. He made a small mistake on the bill but was happy to correct it.

Review №87

Very disappointed. Got the new pork medallions with drizzled sauce ( 1 drop) on each, very dry, even potato was dry after waiting forever to get more sour cream. Waitress never asked if I would like another drink, had 1 the whole time I was there. Never asked if we wanted more bread while waiting and then she kept trying to take our plates when we weren't even done. Granddaughter asked for ketchup twice for chicken strips which we asked 2 waitress for. Not happy about this dinner at all.

Review №88

Great friendly and attentive staff. Good location

Review №89

One of my regular stops. Always consistent quality. Lunch and dinner specials are my go to meals. All you can eat shrimp was outstanding recently. We're part of the dining club so every fourth meal is 50% off. Worth investigating.

Review №90

Mate,if you want a very good and tasty steak, great ribs, and shrimp on the barbie, the Outback is the place to go. Their appetizers are great starters to a super dinner. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. I have been to Outbacks throughout the U.S. and the quality and service are superb everywhere.

Review №91

Outback Steakhouse is my husband's and my favorite place to go,because of their great steaks and other dishes. Also for the great prices and great service you get.

Review №92

Great bang for your buck for a steak!

Review №93

Food was great. We always enjoy going to Outback Steakhouse. Their French Onion Soup is my favorite! I also have loved watching the story on Hallmark Channel of "Meet the Peet's" where the chairman of Outback is helping to fund RJ's Club for kids with Autism, as well as give them jobs. I was really touched by that episode especially. Both of my kids have had learning disabilities. Although not Autism, they have struggled their whole lives and what they are achieving is amazing because we won't let them be defined by their diagnoses. (They're 26 and 18 years old now. My son's a DJ in Colorado, and my daughter will be graduating from high school next month. We're hoping she follows her dream to cosmetology school in the fall.)That's made me realize what a wonderful company this is, and I will continue to support companies like this. Thank you for the great food and the wonderful work you're doing every day!

Review №94

Great food and pretty good staff!

Review №95

The service is always swift, excellent vibes, nice staff. I will visit here again when I get nearby.

Review №96

Place was half empty and we still waited 20 minutes to sit. Steak was totally undercooked for BOTH meals. Manager comped appropriately. Server was really good. He's the reason I gave stars at all.. This is disappointing because this restaurant is one of our favorites and usually really good.

Review №97

I really like this place . Their food is always great and the variety very substantial. I was amazed at how good and tender their beef was .

Review №98

It was better than I expected. Loved the fresh bread. The shell fish was fresh and the steak well seasoned.

Review №99

Worst customer service ever

Review №100

I come here for my birthday every year with family and am very rarely dissapointed.
