Outback Steakhouse Unveils New Prototype Restaurant in San Antonio

Outback Steakhouse, the iconic Australian-inspired restaurant, is proud to announce the grand opening of its latest location at 2814 SE Military Drive in San Antonio, Texas. This new restaurant marks the first-ever Outback Steakhouse prototype in the city, promising a unique and modern Aussie dining experience. Guests can look forward to the grand opening on Tuesday, Oct. 3, and a formal ribbon-cutting ceremony scheduled for 2 p.m. on Oct. 5, 2023.

As part of Outback’s enduring commitment to the community, the San Antonio location will donate up to $5,000 from its opening day sales to the Boys & Girls Club of San Antonio, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing a safe and supportive after-school program for children in need.

Michael McClelland, the Proprietor of the new San Antonio restaurant, shared his excitement, saying, “Twelve years ago, I started as a server at Outback Steakhouse, and today, I am opening my own restaurant in San Antonio. It feels like a dream. As we unveil our new restaurant, our team is looking forward to serving this welcoming community while giving back to a special local organization.”

The redesigned restaurant boasts an edgy and contemporary atmosphere, featuring artwork that combines Outback’s Australian charm with a Texas twist. Notable among the decor is a mural by artist Lindsey Jenneman, depicting a Cowboy Koala surrounded by the bluebonnet flower, celebrating the fusion of cultures that Outback Steakhouse represents.

Spanning 4,291 square feet, the San Antonio restaurant offers a spacious dining room and a large, central bar area, accommodating approximately 187 guests. Whether dining in or ordering online, patrons can savor Outback classics in a one-of-a-kind setting.

Not only does the new Outback Steakhouse enhance the culinary landscape of San Antonio, but it also contributes to the local economy by creating 150 job opportunities for the community. The restaurant is currently accepting applications for various positions, offering employment opportunities for local residents.
