We love it here. Prices seemed to go up a little but the staff, atmosphere and food is always great. Highly recommend going during the afternoon, it is never crazy busy then.

Not a fine steak house but a nice place to grab a blooming onion, burgers, or some mid level steaks. Better than a diner, fun place. Very nice wait staff. Good overall. But not fine steak house.

Just as disappointing as the outcome of the game. The food doesn't compare to the pictures that get you to order it. The blooming onion was soggy and greasy. It was supposedly topped with shrimp and lobster bites but I question that. The slow roasted prime rib was fatty and mushy like it was boiled. Definitely a no go back... More

Every time we consider eating at outback we go home happy. Love the shrimp app. Never had a bad steak. NEVER. and totally enjoyed their baked potato soup. And BTW try their mac and cheese. Yeah it's Good. Who knew. REALLY GOOD. So for all those people who choose insanely priced steakhouses, go and overpay. I'll stay here save money... More

The ambiance is not the greatest, but it's a good go to place for a steak. My husband and I both had the rib steak with mushrooms. Their Blooming Onion was not quite as large as in the past but still a great appetizer with that special sauce. Good place when you are in the mood for a steak.

This place always has a comfy ambiance. The manager is so kind and genuinely looks as if she is concerned for ur visit. The steaks are always great and the $5 martinis are worth it. Located in the heart of Sayreville and Old bridge. Two thumbs up.

If you don't want to spend $200.00, I think Outback is ok. We called ahead for 7PM; arrived by 6:45 and was seated by 7. The servers and hosts were all very pleasant. We (my wife & I) had a drink and it was reasonably priced and enjoyable. We started with smaller version of their 'bloomin onion' and it was... More
