RE: Non-steak steak house entrees
We used to stop at an Outback now and then. The Coconut Shrimp are great, and enjoying a couple of orders of them while sitting at the bar with an icy mug of some brew would make for a nice lite supper.
When we did order off the menu, I liked the Rack of Lamb. At first they served it grilled 'whole', meaning the block of 7 or 8 ribs in a 'rack. Then some Bozo in the office decided to cut the Rack into double ribs and serve 6(3 sets of 2) as the entree. Well setting aside the portion size cut, the doubles were impossible to get any less done than Medium Well. Shortly after this move the Rack of Lamb disappeared from all the menus . Combining the obvious Bean-Counter decisionmaking, I didn't much care for the instant intimate friend image the servers were trained to give a customer when they sat down with the customer to discuss the choices for the day. I like the Shrimp and Beer, but our dining days are over at Outback.
