Outback Steakhouse has been a great place in Yakima and other towns for so many years. Imagine thinking it's time to revisit the Blooming Onion to find out that your local Outback Steakhouse is now closed in some towns across the country.

This nightmare is a reality for many as the parent company is closing 41 locations of Outback Steakhouse and other restaurants including Bonefish Grill across the US according to CNN Business.

Is Outback Steakhouse Still Open in WA?

Good news. Yep!

Of the ones that have closed, there have been reported closures in Hawaii, Pennsylvania, and Iowa. Bonefish Grill had some closings in New Jersey and Virginia. Washington and our friends in Oregon and California seem to have made the cut.

There were also closings of their other restaurants, Carrabba’s Italian Grill and Fleming's, but we don't have those in Washington state but may have several locations in California. As of this time, there's no report on any of the California locations closing.

Silver lining, however. Though they're closing some locations, they're planning on opening 18 locations across the United States, with the new 2022 design. So there's hope for those locations.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
