Great time for a weary traveler!

Stopped in after driving for hours. Ordered a bottle of red wine and it was the perfect temperature. You may think this is common but unfortunately more times than not, a bottle of red wine is served way too hot. I often think restaurant managers think, if it is red wine, it is ok to store next... read more

We have always enjoyed Outback but this trip was a surprise and disappointment. The ladies ordered coconut shrimp but they were dry like they were cooked earlier and left under a heat lamp. Also much more breading than usual. The asparagus were too tough to cut - all except the tips. My pasta was way too to starchy, did they... More

We made reservations since it's usually a packed house on Fridays and Saturdays. I ordered the lamb and it was very very good unfortunately service was super slow. They seemed understaffed. The salads took about 45 min to an hour to come out after we ordered. Then about 20 more minutes the meals were out. Everything was hot and fresh... More

The place was very busy, we use got on the no wait list which decrease our wait time. only 15 to 20 min for a table. The food quality was below want we have had at other Outbacks. The... More

Service was excellent and the food was pretty good for a chain restaurant. The biggest factor in its favor was that it was close to the Garden Inn.

Went with my daughter during a college visit. Food was okay. Service was poor. They did not get my daughter's order right and didn't seem to care. Also messed up the order at the table next to us.
