This is a quick review of our local Outback Steakhouse. It is in the Boca Greens plaza on 441 between Glades and Yamato.
We came with a few kids. The kid menu was fun and they all found something to eat – and liked what they ordered.
The grown ups had filets, which were pretty good. Half of my steak was partly undercooked. Half was right – medium and tasty. The other half was rare. I pointed this out to the server who saw it, agreed, and did nothing to make up for it.
It came with grilled shrimp that were small and boring. If you’re serving a filet the shrimp with it should not be tiny. The vegetables were good – a nice variety with large broccolis.
The other adult liked her filet -with mushroom sauce- better and had excellent mashed potatoes. The meat was cooked perfectly as ordered.
I also had a creamy onion soup which was quite good if you like it peppery (I do). Outback also has outstanding bread (dark and sweet) before the meal with whipped butter.
The restaurant was busy but not crazy, though parking was a slight challenge. Service was not spectacular – perhaps because they were so busy. Servers did not show up to the table as often as needed. They were helpful once they were within reach.
It was also noticeably cold inside, colder than the typically cold restaurants here. Looking around, the customers all seem happy.
This was our first visit. I’m sure we will be back.
