Disappointed

Food was OK, but was very disappointed that this restaurant did not participate in the national Military Appreciation Month. They have in the past, but guess they don't care to participate anymore in May, 2015. Boo to Outback.

First let me start by saying I never liked out but my daughter does.. So I was making a sacrifice just walking in the door. Space and we were greeted by a hostess he asked us how many were in our party we said he walks away and never comes back.. That was my Que to leave but stayed for... More

The food was great, the waitress was very sweet and the Manager came over to make sure that our dining experience was good and it was.

For many seasons, on the road or in the neighborhood, Outback has been a reliable source for flavorful and tender steak. After two similar experiences, I can only conclude it's not true any more. Most recently four of us had steak dinners: two filets and two sirloins. While cooked perfectly to order, all of the steaks were tough, not tender... More

On this occasion, I had the Pork Porterhouse. It is a thick cut pork cooked just right. The service was fast and the wait staff were friendly. I have never had a bad experience at Outback. The hardest thing is to decide which great meal to chose. It makes me want to come back to get the 2nd choice next... More

Outback steakhouse never disappoints, food was cooked exactly as ordered, our waiter was amazing, and the dessert hit the spot at the end of the night

I get to this Outback about once a month. Typical fast casual. I normally sit at the bar as there is always a wait for a table Friday nights. If you don't mind fast service and not squinting to see the game I reccommend the bar.

Came in here for an early dinner or late lunch around 5:30pm and sat at the bar. Ordered a porterhouse steak with a side of soup and aussie fries. Everything came out at the same time: soup, bread, and steak. I don't know if it was due to lack of "ownership" of an order or just gross disregard for basic... More
