Australian tchotchkes and brews give this quintessentially American restaurant a distinctive Down Under flavor.. In Short Boomerangs, Aussie flags, kangaroo portraits and faux aboriginal art honor the homeland's wilderness, but Outback delivers a polished version of rusticity with varnished blond-wood booths with matching wainscoting and casually uniformed waitstaff.

Overall very satisfying.
