We were visiting Sausalito as part of a 2.5 week US holiday. We had some amazing food experiences during our stay in Sausalito and decided to go to Outback Steakhouse for our last dinner here hoping for good ribs or steak. What a bad choice...the food was very dry and overcooked, and even the carrots tasted old and hard. So... More

As they don't seem to be in the UK yet, I only get to eat at Outback when I'm in the US or the Far East. (not visited our antipodean ex colonies yet). They are not fabulous but I would definately be a regular customer. Always good tastes and good value, service can vary a bit, just like any chain,... More

I've read the negative reviews. This is a national chain so of course it is much less "sexy" then a small, independent, well run restaurant. This is Marin and there are many options where you can enjoy food raised and grown in Marin because of the Marin Agricultural Land Trust or MALT. Google it! Awesome stuff. So while in Marin,...

Stopped here with family on the way from Muir Woods to San Francisco. Hostess was very kind and polite, seated us immediately at 6pm on a Friday night. That should have been clue #1! Waiter took our order promptly however that's the last positive. I ordered a medium well 6 oz filet, chopped salad no onions and a baked potato... More

There was plenty of room on a Saturday night about 5:30, but it did fill up. The menu was the standard Outback menu, but we always enjoy it there.

Because the National chain advertised a special on steak and lobster on Wednesdays, we decided to visit. We showed the waitress the ad and it included Sauselito Outback's menu. Sauselito Outback manager Chelsea told us they would not honor the Advertised price. It wasn't the money. It was the arrogance that they could cheat customers and get away with it.... More

Outback was pretty good. Off the 101 so it made it easy to access. The wait wasn't to bad on a Saturday night. Bloody Mary's were bomb.

He tried. He really did. But the chicken was dry, the steak was overcooked and the alfredo sauce tasted like it had been sitting for hours. We were looking forward to dinner here, but everyone left sort of disappointed. Nice waiter though!

The only things good were the maitre d and the beer. I was welcomed and taken to my seat by a very cordial maitre d. After some delay I got a menu. After ordering a sesame seed chicken salad I must have waited at least 30 minutes. Finally I flagged down my waiter. He apologized and brought the salad within... More

Love this place. It's got heart and atmosphere - and the food is good too. The coconut shrimp is a great starter, and of the many times I've eaten here I've never once had to complain about how my steak is cooked. That's why it's our 'go to' place for a casual night out. The service is attentive and fast... More
