Great Food

My boyfriend, friend and I decided to eat here for dinner while on our way back home. The lady at the door was very kind and seated us very fast. Our waitress was nice and very welcoming. We had the blooming onions, which they are famous for, and they weren't bad. Our dinner was great though. I... read more

The problems that I've encountered with takeout include, but not limited to, incomplete product(missing sauces or condiments), no utensils, missing product. The time I complained, the manager told...

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. They start by offering nice warm bread and butter and a full-service bar. So of course sometimes we have wine or beer or even cocktails. Next... More

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.
