Outback Steakhouse Restaurant Review: Since chef Roy Yamaguchi actually owns a piece of the Outback chain in Hawaii, there's a tendency for Outbacks to pop up next to Roy's restaurants. That's the case here, next to the Roy's in Kihei. The steakhouse theme is Australian, wearyingly so. But the food is actually New Orleans steakhouse, not Ruth's Chris, but not bad either, especially for the money. The Bloomin' Onion, a Japanese tempura chrysanthemum onion, is served with an authentic New Orleans rémoulade. The steaks are seasoned New Orleans style, but this is enough of a family restaurant operation that you can have almost anything grilled---from pork chops to vegetables. One would hope a steakhouse with an Australian theme would have a great list of Australian wines. Nope.
