Used to love this place! Staff seemed thin on the ground with no interaction instead tablets on tables that you had to pay thru?! Food was awful. Dinner salad tiny and main was dreadful! Felt very uncomfortable and unwelcome.wont be returning.

Yes, OUTBACK is a chain restaurant, but I find no fault in that. Our dining experience was great. We went on a busy Saturday night, but were seated within the time frame given to us. All the staff were attentive. I'm not crazy about the ZIOSK provided on every table. I prefer one-on-one repartee with the servers. Still, maybe I'm... More

Being an older couple, we tend to split meals and last night it worked well at the Outback. Complimentary bread and a reasonable priced glass of wine made the evening a delight!

This is the first restaurant we head to when we get to Palm Springs. The service, drinks, and food are all good! This trip I thought I would try something new (I usually have the salmon) and I ordered the ribs - they were among the best I have ever tasted and so tender! My husband had the salmon which... More

We had dinner there after the Date Festival. We were greatly immediately & served the fresh yummy bread. I recommend the cesar salad. We ordered the ribs & lobster. Service was great. We will be back.

Very Good. Thick cut, 12, slow oven roasted. Very easy to cut & tender. Clam chowder soup was very good too. We will return for prime rib. Quesadilla, for dinner - dry, tiny chicken nuggets, slimy mushrooms, not recognizable cheese - rating - 1/2 a star.

This was our fourth visit to the Outback Steakhouse at Palm Desert, and sadly, we will not be in a hurry to go back. The restaurant looked tired and sad. The wooden panelling was stained and dirty in places. Maybe it was because this was a lunchtime visit, but we waited a long time for a member of staff to... More

My wife and I went to the Outback for her birthday on a Saturday evening and we had to wait for 90 minutes to get seated! Our meal came and to put it mildly, it was substandard by anyone's standards. The steak was actually tasty enough and cooked to our liking but it was barely warm. We had fries and... More

The food is great. The customer service is excellent and the waiters are so attentive to making your eating experience great. The food is good quality well prepared and taste amazing. The salad with grilled chicken and pepper jack is scrumptious!
