The Outback Steakhouse location at 30 Indian Rock, NY-59, in Montebello, has closed permanently.

According to Elizabeth Watts, Director of Media & Community Relations for Bloomin’ Brands, Inc. in Tampa, Florida:

We made a difficult decision to close this restaurant. The decision was made based on business circumstances and is not a reflection on the employees or the management team. All employees received a severance package and many will have the opportunity to transfer to open positions at a nearby restaurant.

Sunday was the last day of business. We do not have any other current plans for this location. We appreciate the community’s support over the last 20 years and hope guests will visit our Palisades or Yonkers restaurants. 

Community members were shocked, some when they tried to dine at the restaurant on Monday.
