As most people who know me, also know I've traveled the world and eaten everywhere, but I still say that the best ribs EVER I have found at this particular OUTBACK!!!

Six friends, included two couples, visited for our weekly dinner. Their usual steaks are quite peppery. We forgot to ask for the wood grilled ones, even though we had been there often, so we were a bit disappointed. Thought the waitress should have asked which type we wanted.

We feel terrible that we let you down. We'd like to review this further if you could please take a moment to send me an email at news@outback.com with the subject "TripAdvisor - Venice, FL". We can then correspond directly over email. Sincerely, Madeline Outback Steakhouse More

Awful disappointment. Went here for our anniversary dinner with gift cards in hand. It's been a couple of years since we've been to Outback. It's always been great. But seems to be a new regime or something now. First impression was that the prices have skyrocketed. NO problem, we thought, it's a gift and it will be a delicious meal.... More

Be careful if you have Dine Rewards. Walkabout Wednesday, even with an extra salad does not qualify for Dine Rewards unless you have a soft drink instead of beer! 9 times out of 10 the food is good, but occasionally you can have a tough steak on a Wednesday. Other days seem to be fine.

Asked for a quiet table and got one in the corner. We were able to talk with each other no problem. Meal was served in a reasonable time but my steak was cold so I was given another one at no charge. Steaks were done the way we wanted.

We ordered Rib eye steak dinners. The steaks were prepared perfectly. The baked potatoes were great too. I was a bit surprised when the waitress brought me a sweet potato but it was delicious. Wonderful time.

I love this place so much I eat here at least twice a week. I have been bragging about their fantastic RIBS, their STEAKS, their ALICE SPRINGS CHICKEN and so much more, but tonight I tried a new appetizer, I believe they were called Steak Mac and Cheese Bites, and let me tell you.....they were soooooo good!

No significant comments to make about the food offering, steaks are OK, not spectacular, vegetables (mainly broccoli) vary in quality from terrible - yellow and inedible - to good. The issue we had was with the bills. Both ours and our friend's were just plain wrong - overall in our favour with some items overcharged, others under. The server's attitude... More

Food. was good, pretty typical of outback. Nothing spectacular. The service was obviously rushed, get us served and get us out.

We tried the Blooming Hamburger - delicious, juicy and super filling. Almost same price as the fast food chains and worth the extra couple of dollars. Will definitely return as we are super hamburger fans. Plus the service was outstanding: polite, efficient and observant. What else can you ask for when you are stopping for a quick bite to eat...
