My regular haunt

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

They pulled the bait and switch on their advertised special. Claimed they were out of a 6-ounce filet and had to get the 8-ounce at $5 more instead. This was at 730 on a Saturday evening. It was for a small celebration for out 14 year old so what to do? Waiter was uninterested in giving good service. Food was... More

I stick with their special, a 6oz.(plenty of meat for me) sirloin with salad and baked potato. $11, plus generous tip because I will keep returning.

I spoke to a very nice person that took my order even repeated it back. When it arrived to the hotel they had forgotten a few things asked for. The hamburger was a little burnt and they forgot the lettuce. The sweet potato fries needed help.

My wife and I went here on a date and enjoyed it. I got the salmon and it was tasty. We got a Bloomin' Onion for an appetizer, and it didn't disappoint. If you don't count calories and like fried food, it's a must-get item. For dessert, we got one of those mini-milkshakes and enjoyed it. Nice size of dessert... More

My partner and I went to this Outback Steakhouse because we hadn't been to an Outback in quite some time, and overall we felt it was fine for food but lacked in service. We stayed by the bar area to watch Monday Night Football, and the place was kind of dead. It took a while for server to get to... More

I visited this Outback location when I was stuck in traffic and couldn't stand to be on the road any longer. I was seated right away and placed my order, and an order to go. Once my bill arrived, I realized I had left my wallet in my car. I went to retrieve it only to discover I had left... More

Had prime rib with baked potato and green beans. Prime rib cooked perfectly; potato and green beans very tasty. Had Fat Tire beer (ale) and it came very, very cold - ales shouldn't be served so cold - will never order an ale at an Outback again. Service was very good, and waiter was pleasant.
