I hadn't been to an Outback Steakhouse in about 10 years. Outback was good when it first opened but the one in Oxnard had slid downhill. Happy to say the food now, at this location, is very good - steaks, sides, all very good quality, generous portions and a good value. We would certainly come back again. Staff was also... More

We have been coming to this restaurant since it opened. Met Ben when he was a bartender/waiter, now manager. We have on occasion had an issue with bad food or service, If you speak up, they always make it right. As for "Mongoeat, those computer terminals at each table are annoying, but we have to get to the 21st century.... More

Good food and service all (down) under one roof. When I in the mood for fish they have the best halibut in town. But if you love lamb like I do this is the place. A rack served at the right temp. (rare) Great place for dinner but lunch needs some work. Slow service and the food is so-so at... More

Stopped in for dinner and noticed some kind of miniature computer terminal on every table for ordering. Jeez. I thought only Olive Garden did this kind hokey thing. It just got worse from there. The ahi appetizer looked and felt more like tuna jerky than seared ahi. The server forgot to bring us our drinks, the filet I ordered was... More

The TV commercial advertising a filet mignon made my mouth water so I headed off for my dinner only to find out that that ad was for only certain parts of our country. Disappointed, but still hungry, I had the top sirloin steak which was very moist and cooked to perfection. My baked potato wasn't bad, either. The waitress was... More

My wife and I went for dinner based on TV spots and coupons for filet mignon /shrimps for $15.99. It turned out that it was no longer available. We opted for the sirloin steak/shrimps. First, sitting was very fast and our server (Jessica) brought refreshments and bread within minutes of our sitting. Refreshments were replenished without having to ask. The... More
