I really enjoy our trips to Outback. The steak is done to perfection and I really love the baked Sweet Potato. Ask them to whip you up some Raspberry butter for a real delightful taste on the bread. Outback's prices are very competitive... what more do you want?

We ordered online and drove up to get our take-out order, Have to say, the service was great - the guy had to come out in the rain but did so promptly with a smile and cheery attitude. The food...well, wold likely have been better if it was served at a table inside. It was OK, but not up to... More

Imagine--a lovely wood fired and grilled steak cooked to perfection. Medium Rare...perfection consistently! Three ways to choose your lobster. I picked the classic drawn butter with grilled lobster. Side of loaded mashed potatoes. Warm brown bread delivered to the table. We went on Bloomin' Monday, and received a free onion blossom. Dave was our waiter for the 3rd time. He... More

We love Outback steakhouse, I have never had a bad meal there, or poor service! I signed up for their specials and they have all kinds of great deals, like free bloomin onion on Mondays! It is a great value when you can get a steak salad baked potato and bread for $9.99. Also the crab and lobster ad ons... More

This restaurant serves very good steaks and some seafood. The service is excellent. The prices are reasonable. This whole operation is run very efficiently and service is usually fast. Come early as this place is always crowed.

You can always count on a great steak at Outback. Flavor is wonderful and cooked the way you want it or they'll send it back. Love the sweet potatoes, fresh salads and loaded fries! Good for a group, too.

I visit the Steakhouse on a regular basis. I always order the Fillet Steak, rare ! The first couple of times I had to send the Steak back because it was either too tough or over cooked. Nowadays I think they know and bring out the good Steaks in the first place. I have had no problem with my order... More

I was with a party of 4. My husband and I order a steak with coconut shrimp. You guys have nothing on Red Lobster. Steaks were tasteless and dry. We had to order ketchup to put some flavor on it. My son ordered a double burger. He said it was the worse burger he had ever had. Coconut shrimp was... More

The service was good. My wife ordered the ribs and they were not very tasty, No real smokey flavor, it was like they were boiled first and than finished off with a sauce. I had a bone in New York strip that was good. My wife said she would not come back but if you order a steak I think... More
