Outback Steakhouse – Garden Grove


We picked Outback Steakhouse for the National TV advertised 6 oz. sirloin and lobster tail for $14.99. The Garden Grove Outback took exception to the pricing and charged $18.99, $4.00 more than advertised. We selected other dishes instead of the meal Outback’s advertising brought us in for. We happen to like Outback’s steaks so decided not to leave.

Crab Stack appetizer, $8.99

We ordered the Crab Stack of crab meat on top of avocado. It is shaped like a cylinder. The sauce was fabulous. Although the tortilla chips weren’t quite strong enough to scoop up the avocado and crab, our forks did a great job. We really enjoyed this appetizer.

Toowoomba Pasta, $13.99

Dorothy got the Toowoomba Pasta with grilled shrimp, crawfish, mushrooms, fettuccini, & parmesan with a cream sauce. Dorothy found it good but too spicy. She said that the dish had an orange color which came from cayenne. Because of how spicy it was, Dorothy wouldn’t order it again.

Fresh Brewed Iced Tea, $2.99

Outback’s fresh brewed iced tea was delicious. Our servers kept my glass refilled.

Classic Seasoned and Seared 10 oz. Ribeye, $17.99

I ordered the 10 oz. ribeye medium rare. When I pointed out that it was medium well, the server delivering it immediately took it back. The replacement ribeye was prepared medium rare as I ordered. Despite it being really thin, this steak had great flavor. I love the steaks at Outback.

A manager came back twice to check on my replacement steak. I was away from the table when it arrived.

Modified Blue Cheese Pecan Chopped Salad

I selected a chopped salad with pecans and Tangy Tomato Dressing but without the cheese crumbles. This salad normally has blue cheese crumbles and dressing.

Sweet Adventure Sampler Trio® Dessert Trio, $7.99

We got the Trio dessert. We ate the vanilla and whipped cream topped Chocolate Thunder from Down Under® with pecan brownie. This was a delicious brownie. Because it causes congestion for me, I normally avoid eating dishes made with flour. Nevertheless, I’ve been cheating so as to enjoy old favorites. So I was pleased to find out that this dessert was flourless. Neither of us could tell that it didn’t have flour. It was so good with tasty walnuts.

I tasted a corner of the Carrot Cake with coconut and pecans before we boxed it and the cheesecake to take home. The Outback carrot cake is fabulous! Their cheese cake with raspberry sauce was good but no competition to Cheesecake Factory’s.

We really appreciated the attentive service from Richard and Christina, his backup while he was on break. I’m grateful too for the wonderful food. I’m sure that someone who enjoys hot dishes would have liked Dorothy’s pasta as the heat was the only thing she criticized about it. The brownie and carrot cake were exceptional.
