Always dependable, good food and service. Reservations are helpful as it can be very popular. Very nice for a national chain.

Too many of my steaks here have had a high percentage of fat, but for Goleta, I can't think of a better place for a burger.

Stopped by here after not eating at an Outback for many years. We used to like Outback. Maybe just this one has gone downhill, or they all have. Bleu cheese salad: brown, wilted iceberg lettuce that tasted old, with an unappetizing "meatball" of bleu cheese...More

Nice and relaxed atmosphere with good service. The food was very good I would have preferred my steam a little rarer but I'll eat it raw.

We used to go to Outback frequently but noticed the food quality has declined. The lobster and shrimp were good but our steaks were terrible. They were tough and flavorless.
