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.

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

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
