Perry, still loves to have some Hong Kong American Restaurants Food, even for a couple weeks, while we are visiting so that he won't be so home sick.
Hong Kong Outback Steakhouse serves the same dishes as in the U.S. But quality could be different.
In my opinion, HK American food is pretty pricy. To feed a family of 4, it will cost HKD1,600 easy (around USD205). Compare that to going to a decent Chinese restaurant, this price could feed a family of 6 to 8.
Hong Kong American restaurants serve all the American food without the differentiation of which part of the country, such as potato skins, ribs, spaghetti and meatball, quesadilla, caesar salad, steak and many more. You name it, they got it.
The 2 Hong Kong American restaurants we recommend are Dan Ryan's Chicago Grill in the Pacific Place Mall and Tony Roma's in the Time Square mall. Both of them have been in business for quite a while, especially Dan Ryan's. You can communicate with the wait staff in English without any problem in both restaurants.
According to Perry, Dan Ryan's has the best steak. It's very expensive. They have another branch in the Ocean Terminal and Festival Walk malls. But Perry insists that the one in the Pacific Place serves better food.
The setting of this restaurant is very similar to a "Sports Bar". Seating is comparatively tight. Service is ok. If you compare it with most Chinese restaurants in Hong Kong, you may be a bit disappointed. The portion is exactly as big as in the States.
Our recent visit of Dan Ryan's was in Oct 2012. Perry said that the steak was as great as it used to be. He said, "Good taste and tender." My sister had a special discount in this restaurant which it didn't cost as much as it used to be.
During this visit, their services improved a little bit, in my opinion. But I would not jump up and down and say, "Great". Compared to our past experiences in this restaurant at the exact same location, it did get better which was a good news.
Here are some pics of the Hong Kong American Restaurants food we ordered in Dan Ryan's in the latest visit.

About Tony Roma's, we had been to the one in the World Trade Centre, closed by the Excelsior Hotel, several times before they moved to their new location. The old one had a harbour view which was fantastic. But the one in Time Square is not bad at all. Seating is much more comfortable than in Dan Ryan's. In my opinion, their wait staff is better and courteous.
The portions are more reasonable in size which is more appropriate for the Asian expectations. I personally prefer their baby back ribs over there. They have St. Louis-Style Ribs and Carolina Honeys on the menu.
I have been to Ruby Tuesday (hope I remember it correctly) when it was in Ocean Terminal with my best friend, Elaine, once. The renovation is the same as in the States. Food, service and atmosphere was great. Price is no more cheaper than Tony Roma's.
We have been to Outback Steakhouse in Causeway Bay in 2007. The renovation and menu was the same as in the States. But the food and service, unfortunately, was very disappointing. Perry is the BIG Outback Steakhouse fan, just like me being the Starbucker. We hope it has changed since then.
If you are on a budget, you may want to stay away from the Hong Kong American food.
