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.
It's Outback. – Bread is just as great as it is at all the other Outback's. It's crowded on the weekends, so call ahead. But if you like Outback, this place won't disappoint.
Mediocre – I find it a sad testimonial of the Hamptonroads pallet that would rank Outback as the best Steak, but seeing as they voted Hardees best burger, it stands to reason.
My experience with OB has always been mediocre, the Steak is bland and taste pan fried, and generally cooked incorrectly. I have been several times, and it was always the same.
Perhaps their Shrimp on the Barbie is great, but as for steak, they certainly fall short in my opinion.
The Big Miss – Outback may have the biggest, but not the tenderest or the tastiest steaks by any stretch of the imagination. I have tried 3 different times and was very disappointed each time. The steak was tough, It took 3 tries befor they could figure out what Medium rare was and the overall experience was a real let down. I will not go back.
Never Again – The service was slow and the food was dry..how could one eat a dry t-bone???....Never again
Good food, great fun – The food is excellent, from steaks to baby backs, and especially the coconut shrimp appetizer, our personal favorite. We are always met with a smile, and get great service and good food at your location at Chesapeake Square. We prefer the bar, as we enjoy a relaxed atmosphere. For quieter dining, try the dining room. A great place for good food at a reasonable price.
good value – Overall experience has been excellent...good food ,good price. It doesnt get crowded quickly, so u may have to wait, but its worth it.
charbroil – its to commercial for good steaks, its like the wendy's of steakhouses
no good – The food is decent, too much money, not enough steak!
bifsteak – Outback has always afforded the best cut, properly prepared with an excellent set of sides. The service matches the excellence of the servings.
