Yummy Medallions!

Love the atmosphere! The taps are the coldest in town. The management is the best in this area. Worth the wait.

I went for a meal with my son and his family. The deep fried onion was really good. I had prime rib with lobster tail. The lobster was really good - nice and fresh, but the beef lacked flavour and for me had excessive fat. It was about what I expected from a chain - food OK, price OK. Service... More

My husband and I travel the US regularly and often look for a familiar known quantity - like the Outback. Not so this time in Abilene. I ordered the sirloin medium rare and received the filet well done He ordered the rib eye well done and got the filet rare - cold red centre. Nothing was right and I have... More

Waitress rolled her eyes when asked for a gluten-free menu. As a person with Celiac and a father of a celiac child, it seemed as though we were burdening her in order to protect our health. Dessert looked like it was just slopped into the bowl. A small chocolate thunder from down under should not look like it was melting... More

food was ok - but nothing wonderful. Service was terribly slow.... food came out warm and not hot - with a few fries on each plate - not worth the price in my opinion. We were eating dinner after a long drive and wanted something familiar and family friendly - disappointed this time.

I usually go to Outback for their lamb because there are only a few places in the area that serve lamb. This week , I tried the bone-in t-bone. As much as I like lamb, it will be a t-bone the next time. I ordered medium rare and it was cooked perfectly. A good sized steak. Bring your appetite. ....and... More

Dinner by myself on Monday night, restaurant about 50% full of capacity, the service was just dried, the waitress was not very attentive, they charge me extra for the salad when in fact he was supposed to be only 2.99 I got charged 4.99. I have been here in the past and this was one of my favorite restaurants obviously... More

Great food and service. Steaks well cooked and well priced but the add-ons will cost you. I like their fresh salads and broccoli and small milk shakes. Better than an Outback I went to near Boston.

The mojitos here are out of the world! The steaks are nice and juicy too. The prices are a little high but portions are enough to fill you up. The servers have been very friendly and attentive every time I have been.

Came here on a business dinner, and had a very good sirloin. Was met by nice staff, forthcomming and very talkative. It's neither cheap or expencive. The only thing was that the TV was to loud and dominating, very irritating, when your in the middel of businesstalks, but then again, Outback steakhouse may not be the right place for that!
