Outback has a full selection of appetizers, salads, soups, entrees, and desserts, as well as a plentiful menu of drinks to choose from. With so many choices, Outback makes sure to convey the nutritional content of each item by noting its portion size and calorie count. You'll also notice a little Boomerang Icon next to several items on the menu, which means they're considered Outback Signature dishes. A Green Leaf Icon means the item is under 600 calories and a Star Icon means the item may contain nuts. This level of nutritional detail is a great feature of the menu and is much appreciated by health-conscious diners. Keeping an eye on nutrition, we'll break down some of the most popular Outback Steakhouse menu items here.
It's a little-known secret that Outback actually has a separate beverage book that contains the complete pantheon of what's happening behind the bar. Its lore is so important that it's memorialized in a series of online flash cards
that help bartenders memorize what's in each drink. After studying it carefully, here's our breakdown of the top choices in each drink category.
In our opinion, you've got to try the Aussie Rum Punch, which combines a couple of different types of Rum with cranberry juice. We also love the Ruby Mango Lemonade, which is Vodka-based and really delicious.
With 20 different beers to choose from, the Outback Menu has plenty of options. There are 7 types of craft beers on the menu, ranging from Sam Adams Seasonal to Angry Orchard Crisp Apple Hard Cider. You can definitely keep it simple with a Foster's or Bud Light, but we like to head over to the imports and order the Newcastle Brown Ale.
There are more than a dozen types of Red and White whine on Outback's menu, and our favorites are the White Zinfandel from Sutter Home and the Mirassou Pinot Noir.
Even though you order it last, we always put dessert first. Outback has some fantastic options here that will keep your mouth watering from the moment you spot them on the menu. The aptly-named Chocolate Thunder from Down Under features a huge pecan brownie topped with vanilla ice cream. It's finished nicely with chocolate shavings and whipped cream, but be aware that this is a 1500-calorie treat, so we recommend sharing it if you can. For something a bit lighter, you can opt for the Mini Dessert Parfaits which have a nice creamy filling and are served in a cute mason jar. Our favorite dessert, however, is the Triple-Layer Carrot Cake because its coconut flavor blends really nicely with the vanilla cream cheese icing.
Officially called Aussie-tizers, there are more than a dozen apps to choose from. The most famous is probably the Bloomin' Onion, which is why it's pictured on a full-page spread within Outback's menu. If you're looking to dive deeper down under, the Wood-Fire Grilled Shrimp on the Barbie is a great choice. It's finished with a blend of Australian-style seasonings, and glazed with garlic herb butter. We also recommend the Seared Peppered Ahi which is a nicely prepared rare Sashimi-style Tuna. Lastly, the Sydney 'Shrooms makes nice use of Outback's homemade Ranch Dressing as the perfect pairing for these battered and fried mushrooms.
Soups & Side Salads
You can go with the baked potato soup for a hearty blend of creamy potatoes and melted cheese, or opt for the clam chowder instead. We happen to prefer the French Onion Soup because of the excellent ratio of onions and Provolone cheese. And unlike the other soups on the menu, this one is served in a ramekin and comes in just one size. Side salads include the house salad, Caesar salad, Blue Cheese Pecan (our favorite by far), or the Blue Cheese Wedge.
If you want a salad for your meal, you'll want to pay special attention to the dinner-sized salad section. There are 3 options to choose from here, including the Aussie Cobb, the Brisbane Caesar, or the Steakhouse Salad, which comes with seared center-cut sirloin steak. It's finished with pecans and Outback's special Danish Blue Cheese Dressing. The menu recommends pairing it with 14 Hands Cabernet Saivignon and in our opinion, it's not to be missed.
With 8 different cuts of beef to choose from, you can easily see why Outback calls itself a steakhouse. The menu does a great job of explaining the different cuts and describing their tenderness, juiciness, and recommended preparation. You'll also be able to see the pre-cooked weight and calorie count of each steak, from Victoria's Filet Mignon, which weighs just 6 ounces and contains 240 calories, all the way up to the 16-ounce Slow-Roasted Prime Rib, which packs 1,770 calories. That's almost enough for a full day's worth of food when considering the menu is based on a diet of 2,000 calories per day.
One really cool feature of Outback's menu is the temperature guide for steaks. You'll see photos of each level of doneness, with the following descriptions of each:
• Rare: Cool red center
• Medium Rare: Warm red center
• Medium: Warm pink center with a touch of red
• Medium Well: Warm brown and pink center
• Well Done: Hot brown center with no pink
Surf & Turf
The Surf & Turf options at Outback Steakhouse include combinations of steak and shrimp or lobster. They're a great way to sample a few different menu items, especially if you're sharing your meal.
The Outback Steakhouse lunch and dinner menus have a great mix of drinks, desserts, entrees and more. Perfect for dining in or takeout, you're sure to find something for the entire family.
