Outback Steakhouse, an Australian-inspired casual dining restaurant has closed one location and opened another, giving the restaurant more visibility along with an updated look.
Since 1990, Outback Steakhouse has been located on Riverside Drive, the new location is now on less than two miles away on 1892 N. University Dr – south of Royal Palm Boulevard.
Elizabeth Watts, Director of Media at Bloomin’ Brands Inc. said the new location is now on the main thoroughfare and increases their visibility in the area.
“The new restaurant also allows us to update our look with a new design and keep our commitment to a contemporary atmosphere for our guests.”
The new restaurant is 7,026 square feet and has a seating capacity for 282 guests. Now with an open ceiling with exposed wooden trusses, the new design will create a very open atmosphere. Contemporary finishes include beautiful Cambria natural stone bars, espresso-stained millwork, reclaimed wood soffits and iconic Australia décor images such as Uluru (Ayers) Rock. The restaurant includes energy-efficient LED lighting throughout and features a variety of seating to include booths, tables and banquette seating allowing for seating flexibility to accommodate large parties.
Internationally known for award-winning steaks and a wide variety of chicken, ribs and seafood, Outback Steakhouse also offers crisp salads and freshly made soups and sides. Outback said they are committed to “high-quality food and service, generous portions at a down under value in a fun, casual atmosphere” – suggestive of the Australian Outback.
Watts added that team members have already transferred from the older location after dinner service last Thursday night.
The new restaurant opens on Wednesday, March 6, 2019 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 12 p.m. with members of the Coral Springs Chamber of Commerce. They will be holding a giveback event on Grand Opening day with a portion of sales donated to Operation Homefront, which helps military families who struggle and need help with rent or mortgage payments, major repairs, utility bills, or groceries.
