It’s still a good idea to check whether your nearest location is following similar hours before heading there for dinner or whatever your favorite Outback Steakhouse dish may be.
You can check with your nearest location by going directly to the Outback Steakhouse website, which has a function that allows you to search for individual restaurants by zip code, city or state. Hours can vary by location.
