Never a disappointment ; that says it all for the Outback Steakhouse on Pomerado Road in Poway CA. The entree is invariably the same perfect steak plus a perfect baked potato and perfect Caesar salad. The ambiance is casual and quiet (unless noisy children are nearby), with dim lights, no tablecloth, and efficient service. However, it still retains a mid-... More

Went went to this restaurant to have steaks. A ribeye steak for one family member was "off tasting" and replaced by a porterhouse. Several people tasted the ribeye and all agreed it was bad. Other people had fillets, sirloin and the children's menu was great. The table we were seated at was barely inside the outer door and was very... More

Asked for the TV advertised special and was told they were not part of that franchise even though it was a generic Outback restaurant commercial. Offered a meal half the size for the TV price. Manager seemed to care less.

We often eat at this restaurant, who we are with our son, his wife, and children. With a chain restaurant, we measure a location by comparing it to other similar outlets of the same chain. At this particular outlet, the service seems to be a bit slower than other Outback locations. Specifically, the location in La Mesa near our home... More

We have dined at Outback Steakhouse in many cities, and for one reason: no surprises! All Outbacks have the same menu & preparation methods, so you know your steak will be prepared as you like it. Our party Filet Mignon & Tilapia with Pure Lump Crab Meat, and all were served exactly as ordered by the friendly & efficient wait... More

Decent happy hour drinks and special snack food offers. Had good $5.00 happy hour drinks, but the snack food... potato skins, spicy wings. And complementary dinner bread. The bread was good but the other food upset all 3 of our stomachs? (We had eaten a steak meal with potato, salad all the fixings and it was great, maybe happy hour... More

It's just like other Outback restaurants, good food, good service, but everything works following scripts, as in all chains.
