I only had a complaint

Move in day at the college my daughter wanted to come here. Service was very good everyone liked there meals besides me. I had the ribeye sandwich and it was over cooked, and had a large piece of grizzle.

Server didn't pay any attention to our table once he took our order. Waited and waited for our salads to come out as all surrounding tables were serviced. Main meal came out and still no salads. My daughter's soup wasn't brought out. Server came by 10 minutes after someone else brought out part of our order. Still no soup or... More

Our waitress flirted with not only our husband's but every other man she came into contact with. My potatoes were ice cold and the steak that was delivered was wrong. The only drink orders that our waitress offered to refill were the mens. She only offered to refill my drink when she saw that I was the one writing out... More

The food when it comes is good but the wait staff is the worst ever. They are not attentive and can't even get the right drinks and salad dressing. Sad they are going to run this yummy place out of business. The staff is too slow, too careless and and too inattentive.

My husband and I enjoy eating here. He really loves the Prime rib, but it is not ready until 5 pm, which is worth the wait!

Very clean, friendly staff and great food. I recommend the Asian salad with salmon. My husband recommends the ribeye with mashed potatoes. We had the skewer shrimp as a starter and it was delicious.

Fast service and good quality beef to summarize how please I have been to visit this place. You can easily stay in budget and have a good meal when you are on the roads.

Just got a Togo order consisting of two salads. By the time we got home and looked at salads we were surprised and disappointed with the portions for the price paid. The salads were the size of side-salads. Nothing like you'd get in the restaurant. Called manager Faye. She nicely agreed to comp our next visit. Ck your Togo orders... More

The Tuscaloosa, AL Outback is a good Outback. I had the ribeye sandwich and fries along with Red Diamond draft beer. The sandwich and fries were served hot and tasty. The Red Diamond draft beer was good but pricey (almost $10 for one!). The waitress was nice but a little distracted and messed the bill up twice! She did correct... More

I find some Outback food too salty for my taste, so I asked to have the Lobster Tail lightly seasoned and it came out as requested. The loaded baked potato comes with bacon, but they left it off as requested. Our waitress was right on and we left feeling that we would return to Outback eating if they are all... More
