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.

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
