Outback Steakhouse = No Steak

We decided to go to the Outback Steakhouse that just opened in our neighborhood. After being seated and waiting 10 minutes to be acknowledged by our waiter, he showed his face at our table and said he would be with us in 5 minutes...

He returns to the table about 5 minutes later

Waiter- Welcome to Outback...sorry I made you wait it's been crazy today. What can I get you.

Me- We are going to give you the entire order because who knows when we will see you again (laughing)

Waiter- Ok

So we order drinks and then Hubby proceeds:

Hubby-I want to get the Tenderloin and Shrimp...

Waiter- Oh sorry sir, we just ran out of the Tenderloin.

Hubby-Ok...let me get the Steak Salad...that sounds good.

Waiter-Oh I'm sorry we are out of that too because we use the Tenderloin Steak on it.

Hubby-Rachel what do you want? I would get the pasta but I really don't want to get pasta at a steak restaurant.

Me-I'll take the Prime Rib...

Waiter-Wow we are out of that too...I'm really sorry maybe you should have come earlier?

Me-Earlier? Looking at the time...it's 8 o'clock on a Friday night...how much earlier...seriously?
What I wanted to say was "Are you fffffffing kidding me"

Waiter-We have been really busy tonight.

Hubby-Let's go...we came to a Steakhouse to get steak...I don't want fish or chicken.

So after talking with the manager and her apologizing that they are still getting acclimated and knowing how much food to order (what this is a chain restaurant wouldn't they have this figured out by now...does the steak truck come in first thing in the morning or are the Saturday customers screwed too) she offered us dinner for two on our next visit. Since it's free I will give them another chance. And she threw in a Bloomin Onion...YUM!

Isn't their motto now "Crave on". Be careful though when it's "on" because they may be out of steak...I kid people!

Lindsey said...

YIKES! That's great that you got a free meal out of it!

Gwen said...

Oh I would have been pissed!!!! When you want a steak you want a steak!!! Too bad you don't live here because we have the best steak house ever right down the street!!! I'm talking 32oz. porter house split 4 ways. Hopefully next time they won't screw up so bad. :)

Amy said...

You know, you would think since they just opened. They would be READY for a huge crowd of people.

Gah some people. But can't go wrong with a free dinner. Just make sure to go at like 12 in the afternoon so they still have food.
Hahahaha

Gotta love a free meal though, but i'm sure it was frustrating!!!!

What?! Next thing we know there'll be Outback riots!

Mrs. S said...

You know, I have noticed that Outback has not been great around here lately either. I wonder if the chain is under new management or got bought out or something. Because I used to think that place was awesome!

Did you guys end up getting your steak?

The Wife O Riley said...

I hate that! That happened to us at an Applebee's when we were at a bowling tournament.

They gave us nothing, and I will never be back.

You've should have gone to LongHorn Steakhouse!!

Amy said...

At least you'll get a free dinner out of the situation! Bonus with the bloomin onion!! I love the sauce!!!

Stampin Mindy said...

Wow thats aweful! at least you got something out of it though.. although your hesitant wanting to go back.. those onions are so good too!!!

Fifi Flowers said...

WOW... Guess you needed to go the "OUTBACK" to get your steak. The more I eat out... the more I am disappointed... and I soooo hate to cook these days... sigh!
Hope your next visit is better... perhaps you should call ahead and put your order in!
ENJOY!

Oh I really hate Outback...I have never had a pleasant experience there...I mean really, should you have the time to completely finish all your appatizers before the salad...and be able to lick the salad bowl clean before the dinner comes...ugh. Good luck on your next visit.
