Following in the footsteps of the successful Kihei Outback Steakhouse, the new Lahaina location gives Maui residents and visitors alike a chance to kick back and act like blokes and sheilas for an evening.
Diners who “go Outback” may savor familiar favorites as well as exciting new menu items for both lunch and dinner in this new, open-air location upstairs from Barnes & Nobles in the new shopping mall.
From the ever-popular Bloomin’ Onion to fresh seared ahi to USDA Choice steaks, the menu offers Mauians a sample of why Outback was honored for the third year in a row with the Platinum Award for Best Steakhouse by the Consumer Choice Awards in Restaurant Magazine. It also features grilled chicken, fish, shrimp, signature drinks, salads and desserts. And make sure to check out all of the didgeridoos, displayed vertically like the stalks in a bamboo forest, as well as the backlit walls resembling the dreamlike state in an aboriginal walkabout. This location is the first to boast this new and vibrant look of the Outback.
“Maui is such a special place. The island has embraced us wholeheartedly,” says Art Ortiz, the managing partner of Lahaina’s Outback. “We’re delighted we can return some of that hospitality at our new location.”
Steak lovers will find it at 325 Keawe Street within view of the Honoapiilani Highway across from Safeway.?It’s open for lunch, dinner, late night and it also offers curbside take-away so “the party can go anywhere you do.” Hours are from 11 a.m. to midnight.
For more information, call Outback at 665-1822.
