Outback Steakhouse – New Hours

Comments: Comments Off
Published on: April 19, 2014

While we don’t always cover chain restaurants, this is a dining review site.  That said, I was at the Outback Steakhouse off Rt 31 in Clay last night, and there were a number of changes.

Most importantly, Outback is now open every day of the week at 11 AM.  That means you can now visit outback for lunch!  I know that for years, many people complained that they had to wait for dinner for a Bloomin’ Onion.  Hehe.


Also, not that it matters to most folks, they’ve done away with their green beans as a side item.  My waiter was equally as perplexed as I was.  He told me that these were one of the most popular sides.

As you may know, the large Outback on Erie Blvd East closed down a month or so ago.  The Clay location is the only one near Syracuse at this time.  The closest others are in Vestal and Henrietta.

We’d like to hear from you!  In the comments section for this post, we’d like for you to suggest places you’d like reviewed.  While we can’t accommodate every suggestion, we’ll do our best.

Please keep in mind that we try not to review too many chain restaurants, and there’s another blog already covering pizza shops.  We try to get reviewers to go all over the Central New York area – not just Syracuse.

Thanks for your input.  We look forward to hearing from you!

How do you feel about pictures?

When we started this site, we made a decision not to post photos of the food served.  Mainly it was because everywhere you turn, people are posting images of the food being served to them, and we at CNYDining find most of these pictures off-putting.  They are of poor quality, mainly taken with cell phones, and even the ones captioned “Heavenly – you must try this!” often look like crappy photos of table scraps.

We’ve done a few dozen reviews without photos, but will begin to include some taken of the locations for the reviews.  No, not the food.  On a personal note, I often find that kitchen workers do not “dress” plates the same way from visit to visit.  This may be because the staff has changed, the person who plated your food may be trying a different way, or they simply don’t have the same amount of time during each of your visits.

Please let us know your opinions.  Will photos of the restaurants help?  Do we need to include food pix?  Your comments will help shape the direction of this, your premiere dining review site in Central New York state.  Thank you for your time, attention, and participation!
