Great place to eat. Good was very good and the place was clean. Great waitress but she made my wife and I fill we should hurry up and leave as many times as she stopped by to ask how our meal was. We will be back again for sure.

Had an evening business meeting at this location. We had nice conversation that was easy to hear and had very little distractions. Our waiter was super nice and on top of things. The food was good all around as well. I'd visit this location again.

Steak was verrrrrrry chewy! Disappointed to say the least! Server was very attentive; restaurant was clean; just disappointed in the steak--expected better at a "steakhouse".

The family wanted full meal and a beer in less than an hour. This was a great venue to suit our needs. Our server was friendly and efficient. Lively atmosphere and kid friendly. I had the blooming onion burger and a sweet potato which I rave about. My husband was impressed with the fish tacos. The restaurant was a little... More

In town on business staying at a nearby hotel. Walked over to several restaurants for dinner, and chose based on how busy they were. The Outback was by far the busy place. The others were eerily quiet although rated pretty well?? I hadn't been to an Outback before, and was pleasantly surprised by quality of service, food and the value.... More

Had a nice time there for drinks on night and went back for supper the next night. I think our waiter was Kevin. He was polite. The food was good.

We had a server whose name was Eric and he was spot on. The steak and ahi tuna was excellent. They have an extensive menu I believe there is something for everyone.

Really good food and service. We eat low carb and they more than happy to sub veggies for the fries. The ribs we to die for, really really tender and the rub that was on them was really yummy. We eat ours plain with no sauce and they were just tasty.

"Well done" hamburger actually came overcooked to the point of being inedible. Fries lacked any taste and were soggy. Would not return based on this one experience.

Lobster tacos were good. Prime rib was average. Our server was very good. Friendly and made sure that our dinner was to our liking. The kitchen forgot to fire one of our add-on items, but we eventually got it. Overall, typical chain restaurant food. Nothing amazing, but certainly not bad by any means.
