Got seated right away with a party of seven by using their online seat ahead service. Food and service were all up the par.

Our FAVORITE place to dine out when celebrating or just want a really good steak dinner. We usually go for the Outback 6 oz Special Steak along with the famous blue cheese wedge salad.

Outback is always consistent, and you get what you expect here. The food is generally good, service is friendly, and it's always busy but fairly quick service.

Outback lives up to the standards of its chain. The service is good, the waitrons friendly and the food excellent. It's a little noisy; I don't go there to talk.

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".
