The servers were very helpful but it was a little too crowded. The food was good and I liked the Australian feel of the restaurant. I look forward to coming back but not any time soon.

It's on the extreme west side of the mini-mall, so if you enter near Beck road you have to drive a long way through the parking lot to find it. I believe you want the 3rd or 4th entrance from Beck, off Grand River, on the north side. It compares favorably with other Outbacks I have tried in Livonia (bad... More

If you're in the mood for a steak and you don't mind the Australian theme, this is an ok option. Compared to the minimal selection nearby, this is an option in a pinch.

We had a reservation and we still didn't get seated for an hour. Overall the food was ok. One of the people in our party thought the food was awful. Don't plan to go back there anytime soon

Not expensive, but about average middle of the road steak and seafood chain restaurant. Prime rib was overcooked for a medium and wasn't the highest quality cut of meat. Onion blossom was astoundingly greasy. Other sides were good, including Caesar salad and baked potato. Service was attentive and friendly. Overall, a safe choice for a middle of the road dining...

The salmon dinner was delicious. It was cooked perfectly with a vegetable garnish. The steaks and fries were also good according to colleagues.

We used to go to this Outback probably once a week, then the food went down hill to hit the bottom. On the last time here I ordered the all you can eat shrimp side. The first plate of fried shrimp was dark brown and totally over cooked, so I tried the garlic shrimp, the waitress dropped it off and... More

Omg, our tab was $94 for my wife, son and I. The wife had filet and lobster tail. No joke, the lobster tail was the size of a large shrimp lol! We've never seen one remotely that small. I so politely mentioned it to the waitress who looked at me like I had two heads. I totally softballed it saying,... More

Frankly speaking; when I'm in the US; Outback is always worth a visit for Dinner. Good service and food taste throughout the menu. No WLAN is a issue; no clue why they don't offer that standard. Anyway; nice place with low risk getting upset.
