The new Outback Steakhouse in Glen Mills, Pa., near the Delaware lione, will open daily for lunch at 11 a.m. today. That’s a change from the chain’s tradition of dinner-only service.
This restaurant at 701 Byers Drive will replace the Outback at 561 Glen Eagle Square, which closed its doors on November 3. The new location is the first in the area to feature a new building design both inside and out.
“We’re excited to share our new look,” said Henry Dustman, managing partner. “It’s a gorgeous restaurant that’s still indicative of our popular Australian theme. We can’t wait to welcome the community with great food, highly attentive service and a relaxed atmosphere.” Fifty percent of the opening day sales (up to $5,000) will benefit the Concordville Fire & Protective Association to help fund training, equipment and equipment maintenance.
The new exterior signals change while maintaining elements of the original design. The Outback design features an outdoor patio, exposing heavy timber detailing and featuring louvers and screens. Outback has fared better than other competitors, like Lone Star, but faces upstarts like Firebirds, which has opened a restaurant in Glen Mills.
