We ordered by phone and shortly thereafter went to Outback to pick up a very deliciously well cooked dinner! Loved that they offer this service! Took our dinner home and enjoyed it in the comfort of our home -- loved it! (everything was super!)

A meal to rival anywhere. The salad was cold and crisp-the Prime Rib to the touch just right and jucy and the baked potatoe was streeming of with butter! Desert was to kill for.

The food is just average...it's not fantastic, but it isn't horrible either--just nothing to write home about....it is just not a favorite.The atmosphere is horrible....too many people, too noisy.. The same old menu with each entree served the same old way...just not very appetizing. The chicken isn't fresh....you can tell it's been frozen...again...just not a favorite.

The Outback for a meal is always good. The service is excellent as are the STEAKS... The cost is a little on the High Side, but not really all that bad. Want a good Steak, go to the Out Back and be spoiled by the friendly folks that will wait on you. Good Place to eat and highly recommended...

I order the house salad and a cup of the potato soup. I asked for soup to come first, it was just barely warm enough to melt the cheese. Good flavor, just not hot enough. Then came my warm, wilted, salad. if lettuce is that wilted, please just don't serve it. My date ordered the tripple grill combo. Ribs, chicken,... More

I say this with a heavy heart...my last visit was like the previous (i always like to give a second chance) not good. The so called Filet Mignon on both occasions was tuff and I even questioned if it was a filet at all! Other people in my party also said their food has gone down hill! Sigh

Always go to this restaurant with a friend who loves this place. I've never been disappointed with any of their dishes. Have gone to the bar with friends and had just Appetizers and drinks for dinner after work. We've always have enjoyed ourselves and got full with their servings. Their Bloomin Onion is to die for, best one I've ever... More
