"We're looking forward to sharing milestone moments with our guests at occasions like weddings, family gatherings, watch parties, and celebrations," said Brett Patterson, president of Outback Steakhouse. "We're particularly excited to cater to employees as they return to the office because we know the power of sharing a great meal whether it be for recognition or a social gathering during a busy day."

Outback's catering menu consists of menu favorites like Alice Spring Chicken, Filet Skewers, and Kookaburra Wings, and of course, its famous brown bread loaves. The menu will also have sides and desserts, drinks, as well as exclusive offers like a build-your-own burger bar.

For occasions featuring parties of ten or more, customers can order buffet-style. The option comes with the ability to mix and match premium steaks, chicken, sharable salads, and dessert platters.

Outback Steakhouse was founded in 1987 and currently has 697 locations in the U.S. The restaurant is famous for steaks and its iconic Bloomin' Onion, which is served with a horseradish and mayonnaise dipping sauce. In 2011, the dish was featured on CMT's Top Secret Recipe.
