Service was excellent - food was average but it was close to the hotel. Located in a mall like most of these places.

Outback used to be special- not any more. The blooming onion has gotten so small you wonder what you got. The outback special steak was overcooked and not very tasty. Service was good--- this is not the place it used to be, would much rather go the steak place in Midtown

Friday night dinner. Busy but the staff never made us wait. Christian was our server and he is exceptional. The manager is very friendly and we had a wonderful experience. Food was perfectly prepared. Thanks to everyone for making our visit perfect.

It has been a while since I have been here, but I understand why you are now the #33 restaurant in Tuscaloosa. You have made your portions smaller while increasing your prices and your entrees are not done as advertised!

Outback is a neat place to dine. Their food just tastes so darn good. The prices are fairly reasonable and the serving portions are reasonable, also. Their Bloomin' Onion is super!!
