Outback Military Discount

Most of us associate Outback Steakhouse with Australia, but the restaurant will be All-American this Veterans Day, November. 11.

Outback is one of many restaurants that offers a daily 10% military discount. In fact, The Outback goes one step further and offers their daily discount to military men and women and police, firefighters, and other first responders.

In addition, The Outback Steakhouse will have a special deal for veterans and active duty military members at its more than 1,000 locations around the country.

It’s part of a Veterans Day trend: restaurants offering deals to veterans who have served to protect the American way of life. It’s a fitting tribute since our way of life favors good food served well.

Outback’s 2021 offer is similar to previous Veterans Day promotions. As always, make sure to call your location to make sure they are participating.

Here’s a Rule: Get Verified as a Vet

Outback Steakhouse’s “No Rules, Just Right” slogan may need some revision on Veterans Day.

Your Outback location will have to enforce a few rules to make sure only veterans and military members claim a free Bloomin’ Onion and drink.

To show your status as a veteran, bring some documentation as proof of your military service and present it to the host when you sign in for a table. Here are a few common proofs you could bring:

Getting cleared as a vet or a currently serving military member right away will make things easier as your server calculates your ticket when your party finishes ordering.

If you’re worried about confirming your status, call ahead to make sure your form of verification will work.

More Details About this Deal

As stated above, Outback is offering veterans and current military members a Free Bloomin’ Onion and your choice of any Coca-Cola® product on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, 2021.

This policy differs from most other casual dining Veterans Day offers which give veterans a free entree — often from a limited menu — but require the full price for additions such as appetizers and for drinks.

There’s nothing wrong with mixing it up a bit. If you like Outback, and if you’d like one of the largest and most-filling appetizers out there, you’ll love this deal.

If not, veterans have more places than ever to choose from this year as dozens of restaurants offer free or discounted meals on and around Veterans Day.

Are Family and Friends Included in Outback’s Deal?

This offer is only available for the veteran. You will pay full price for other guests you bring.

Best sure to check with your waitstaff when ordering, and be sure to tip them on the full price of the meal. It’s the right thing to do!

This offer cannot be combined with other specials and ongoing promotions at Outback.

We are not sure if this offer can be combined with Outback’s ongoing 10 percent discount for military members, law enforcement, and first responders known as Operation Homefront.

Also, please note that none of the discounts above apply to alcohol sales or to gratuity.

What is a Bloomin’ Onion Anyway?

Outback Steakhouse burst onto the casual dining scene in the early 1990s with a flurry of advertising and entry into most large American markets.

Though Australian in theme, the chain has its roots in Tampa, Fla., and its menu features steaks, soups, salads, seafood, and sandwiches.

The Bloomin’ Onion, one of the restaurant’s most distinct choices, combines deep-fried onion petals arranged into a plate-sized bloom with the restaurant’s signature Bloom sauce.

If you’ve never added one to your Outback meal, Veterans Day will be the perfect time to give it a try.

Bottom Line

You’ll find Outback Steakhouses along busy shopping corridors and Interstate exits throughout the country. The restaurant’s website automatically identifies your nearest location (assuming your computer or device gives it permission to do so).

The site also tells you how long you’ll have to wait to be seated at your nearest Outback. As with any special holiday promotion, it’s a good idea to call ahead before arriving to make sure your location participates.

This Veterans Day, you can also find some pretty generous discounts from retailers across the country, as well as special rates on events and attractions.

On Veterans Day and every day, there are companies out there who want to thank you for your service with military discounts.
