“Nothing beats the combination of snow crab and award winning steak,” said Paul Fabre, Executive Chef for Outback Steakhouse. “Buttery sweet crab meat with Outback’s bold steaks is the perfect way to dive into summer.”
To help beat the heat, Outback is also adding fruity drinks and cool desserts to the menu.

Plus, new Mini Milkshakes are made to order with hand scooped Blue Bell® Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream, topped with house made whipped cream in Strawberry, Vanilla, OREO®, Chocolate or summer’s seasonal flavor, Banana Pudding.
In Australia, there’s a fresh take on life. At Outback, that fresh spirit inspires every dish. Outback’s commitment to freshness means food is made to order with the highest quality ingredients. In fact, Outback Steakhouse was recently voted No. 1 Best Steak in the 2012 Zagat Survey of National Full-Service Restaurant Chains for the fourth consecutive year. Outback Signature steaks can be savored two ways: seasoned and seared with a secret blend of 17 spices, or wood-fire grilled to perfection. At down-under prices, it’s easier to enjoy a meal at Outback more often.
