Food is absolutely amazing! Although it looks a little pricey the servings are huge and so much flavour and taste.
The manager was so lovely and despite the Covid-19 restrictions, the service was great.
Highly recommend!!!

Highly recommend this outback’s , friendly staff , amazing quick efficient service. Very family orientated , kids can talk and enjoy family time in one of their booth tables, they can talk at a volume , colouring and kids activities provided while you wait.
. Kids all love the food and feel satisfied after. Kids food comes with drink.
Beautiful lamb dish I always order, good variety of dishes on the main menu, you have a variety of side dishes, starters , GF, vege options to choose from too, very tasty and cooked to perfection.
Drinks menu has a vast choice

It was my hubby’s birthday. I booked a table for 2 and requested to put up a sign on the table to say happy birthday. Upon arrival we were taken to table 35 and I could not see any sign up or anyone coming up to say , ‘sorry we have no such sign available in the restaurant, but hay we wish you happy birthday. I was not happy at all.
Anyways the waitress was extremely friendly and food was good.

It was very impersonal as had to use an app to order so no real service.
Our entree came out less than 5 minutes before mains. The potato was lumpy and my husband asked for steak medium to well. His plate was covered in blood from the steak he couldn’t even eat it
Would of normally had coffee etc but too much bother to ask for menu scan code get out card to pay.

on receiving main meal asked if potato had sour cream, reply was yes, when he was informed it was not to have sour cream, he refered to the order and said it did not.
if servers do not know what they are serving may be there training should be better, the potato did contain sour cream as was sent back.

You would think paying $50 for 1 steak that the place would have thrown in a free sauce, but nope. Once food was delivered, never saw anybody again - a check in even just half way through the meal would have been enough.

Good covid safe practices with temperature checks at the front counter and tables spaced well apart for social distancing. The service staff were friendly and food came out quite quickly. Steaks were nice, soft and juicy and servicing size of chips were plentiful. Salad was really nice with the vinaigrette dressing.

Average -
Since the last time I was here (about a year ago), the portion sizes have gotten noticeably smaller while the the price remains the same.
While the flavour of the food itself was still traditional Outback Steakhouse it was nothing outstanding.

Using tables that were marked not to be used, if people don't have a booking they have to wait until a table is available don't put people that do the right thing and book a table at risk by putting them at tables that should not be used due to social distancing and clearly have marked on them not to be used.

Need to bring the ice cream sundae back, people just want ice cream sometimes

I ordered the ribs which were dry and the chips tasted old. Coleslaw was such a small amount it may as well been left off the plate. My daughters calamari was tough and oily. The burgers were not made as we ordered them. Strip loin is good value for money and my husband really enjoyed that.

Our server Abby was brilliant (hope i have her name right) it was one of her first shifts and she was friendly, knowledgably and extremely proactive. She checked in with us mutliple times to ensure we were enjoying our evening, was quick to offer the free refills for our drinks and got our large order correct.
Every employee had a smile on their face all night and seemed happy to be working and their energy complimented the nice family friendly vibe of the restaurant.
We eat here probably twice a month and have never had a bad meal or bad service.
The food is extremely well priced and their are a lot of options to please even my two fussy children. The host on the door was pleasant and welcoming and asked some great questions to ensure we had an enjoyable night.
The restaurant was very clean and I felt safe eating there even during covid - their was sanitiser available, servers all wore masks and waitstaff were quick to clean and sanitise tables.
Well done to the team at outback Parklea on impressing me yet again.

We came here for a birthday dinner and service was quite disappointing. We got asked immediately what we wanted, when we just sat down. We asked our server to give us a tiny bit more time and we had to flag him down 30 ages later because he didn’t come back to us.

The birthday dessert came out before the table was even cleaned with our dinner.

Food was disappointing for the price paid. (i.e. Ceasar Salad was sparse and one serve lacked bacon and as my Son requested no egg, consisted of cheese and salad). Desserts were very nice,
Service was abysmal as had to request service on two occasions and that the table be cleared of finished and dirty plates.
Liquor was ordered, whisky "neat" was under proportioned and cost the same.
Would not return.
I have worked in the Hospitality industry and speak from an informed place.
I also noted on the Reservation booking that it was a 21st, No acknowledgment made of that at all. This is not standard but would have impressed and categorised under Customer Service.

Hi Linda thanks for the feedback. i will mention to my team that you thought that more bacon should have been on the salad. As for the alleged under pour your Ballentines was poured to 30 ml. As for trying to remember all birthdays coming in to the restaurant we do are best servers can have over 8 tables in all wanting birthday requests we do provide a free dessert for birthday tables. thanks again Patrick

Uncomfortable seating in the booths with lack of cushioning & considerable wear & tear that is need of updating.
Steaks over priced. Fat is acceptable until its half of the steak & the edible part wasn't cooked to order!

HI Donna Thanks for the review I see you ordered 3 ribeys for your dinner which has the most marbling out of all our steaks. With this cut we would always recommend getting it cooked medium and above so the Marbling melts through the steak. but I will keep an eye on this. As for comfort we do have spare cushions and would of happily helped you with this. Thanks Patrick
