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

Call ahead reservations was good. We arrived and were seated within 5 minutes on a very busy night. Food was like every other Outback; so if you like outback you will like this one!

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.

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
