Anyone who has been to the Milwaukee area knows that folks around here sure love to eat out! Unlike other places where you can pretty much count on not having to wait unless it is Friday or Saturday night, diners here can pretty much count on a full restaurant no matter where they go and no matter what night of the week.
I hate having to wait at a restaurant, especially when I am hungry!
Okay – so maybe it’s not just here. It turns out that Outback Steakhouse recently did a survey of their customers’ experiences at all different restaurants around the country and found that on average customers waited about 40 minutes to be seated. Heck, I could cook, eat, and clean up an entire meal in that amount of time!
Outback Steakhouse is empowering their guests to take control of their own dining experience with Click Thru Seating on Outback.com.
Guests can look up wait times and even add their names to the wait list before they have even left their home. This is especially attractive to people like me who hate waiting around a restaurant lobby. This is also really helpful when entertaining out of town guests. Who wants to offer to take someone out to eat and then spend all of your time waiting for a table, right? Or what about when you are out and about doing your holiday shopping – definitely don’t want to waste valuable shopping time waiting around!
So once you’ve got your seat at the table, what is your favorite thing to order? I mean, I know steak is probably a given, but what else? Personally, I love the Bloomin’ Onion! No one else can make onions like Outback Steakhouse. Whether you love the Bloomin’ Onion or the Coconut Shrimp, you’ll want to make sure you stop into your nearest Outback Steakhouse on January 2nd when everyone will receive a free appetizer in celebration of the Outback Bowl!!
