Consistent and delicious

To begin with, I am an Outback Steak House fan because of their consistency no matter what part of the country you are in. This one was not disappointing in any way. I have to give it just under an excellent rating but I was very pleased.

I have always liked the food at Outback but was a little too pricy for my budget. They have now opened for lunch and have reasonable menu prices.

Redheaded waitress was less interested in ours & the other tables she was assigned than what time she got off tonight. YES, it was that apparent! Steak was tough; glass was chipped, but not replaced when I pointed it out. The rum punch was excellent...definitely the high point of the meal for me.

Quality & portions of the food are always good here. Our waitress was sweet & as well as helpful but tended to forget requests, but she always made them right when prompted. She was very attentive.

My family of four (children 'tween' ages) came in with friends for a nice evening dinner. We were seated promptly but waited for a significant amount of time for the server to come to 'say hi.' When she did, she commented on all of our friendly hellos, "Finally, a table of nice people." She was laughing so we laughed but... More

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

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
