  1. Went to Outback last night and nobody there had ever heard about this special. I even pulled it up on my phone right on Outback's website and they still refused to honor it. I used to eat at Outback at least twice a month for years, but in the past year they have drastically gone downhill. Their portions are all much smaller than they used to be, and their prices keep going up. Used to get a bowl of potato soup with your filet, now you get a small cup (maybe 4 spoon fulls). The baked potatoes are smaller. Even the Wallaby Darned has gone down in size. The Victoria Filet used to be 7oz or 10 oz, now it is 6oz or 9oz, and 5 dollars more!!! Outback used to be my favorite place to take my friends and family, but definitely not anymore. It's sad when I think of the thousands of dollars that I have given to every Outback in San Diego, for them to succumb to this. I understand that they are all individually franchised, but there should be some type of consistency from the corporate office for all locations. After all, one bad apple spoils the bunch.

  2. It says on their website: "price, product and participation may vary by location". It is up to the discretion of the individual franchisees if they are going to offer certain deals advertised by the corporate office.

  3. Went to one on Lantana Rd and Jog Saturday night worst shrimp I've ever eaten. All you can eat and you get six shrimp scampi, fried shrimp taste like processed shrimp. Never eat there again.

  4. Disappointing. In Oregon, the price was $17.99. The shrimp were very salty and the scampi was a joke. The buffalo was ok, but still very salty. The steak was also not the typical tasty sirloin I'm use to at outback. It was dry and tasteless for a medium. The only thing good about this dinner was the kids eat free coupon we used. Skip this promotion, it's not worth while.

  5. Not knowing any better, when asked my preference of steak,
    Sirloin or Filet, I said Filet and it was $23.99, not $14.99. Be careful not to be duped.

    I had this promotion at my local Outback about a week ago. Most of the menu choices were indeed $14.99, but the Victoria's Filet and one other option (a larger sirloin, IIRC) were higher. [Note that any menu option which includes the Victoria's Filet will always be higher.]

    I had the scampi & the fried shrimp. Yes, the shrimp portions are not as large as you would get as part of a regular menu item, but the promotion is titled "unlimited", so you can always order more. I assume the small shrimp orders are to reduce waste (which is exactly what I would do if I were running such a promotion).


    Anyway, the scampi was okay, but not as good as Red Lobster's. Fried shrimp, were, well, fried shrimp. My server encouraged me to try the buffalo shrimp the next time I came in. I made my usual wisecrack about avoiding fluorescent orange food when anyone promotes buffalo-anything to me and he actually seemed a bit hurt, as if it may have been his favorite item. So perhaps I will try them if I have the promotion again before it ends.

    Prices have indeed increased at Outback over the past year; IMHO this directly reflects to the increase in beef prices due the severe drought over much of the interior West in 2012. I would expect prices to further increase over the coming months since that situation and its effects are still continuing.
