Not bad but not stellar either.

Good eats but a long wait and I think Outback charges just a little more than I would like to spend for a casual night out for dinner.

When you go to eat at a large chain like the Outback Steakhouse, you set your expectations as such. I expected a decent steak, decent service and a great blooming onion! We got all three. We have been multiple times and service is hit or miss but I think that goes without saying for any restaurant.

We were seated promptly. I recommend showing up about 7:30 or 8, after the dinner rush. Our server was great. Food was fine. The bread was little harder than usual, so was the butter, obviously chilled. My sister and I ordered the chopped pecans and blue cheese salad. She had had it at another Outback and really liked it.

Ok but not as good as other Outback restaurants. Selection and steak seasoning is lacking. Always come to Outback for the best tasting steak but needed A1 this time. Recommend another location.

Was recently at this restaurant with my son and his girlfriend. I was looking forward to going there because of all the advertisement I had seen. I especially wanted to try a Blooming Onion. I also ordered a steak well done. To be honest, the Blooming Onion was just OK and the steak was just OK also. I have had... More

I went to this place for dinner last week. Th staff were very welcoming and friendly. the place was a little bit dark, but I liked the way they has a light right above your plate - I like to see what I am eating. I asked for a 9oz Sirloin medium - it was perfect. I had the garlic... More

My husband and I both ordered the sirloin. I asked my husband if his steak was good and he said it had an old taste but it was ok. My steak was tough (medium rare) and tasted old, freezer burnt and ruined. My husband just smelled it and called the waiter over and had the steak taken away. It was... More

The one thing I love about Outback has been their consistency, this location is the exception. Our server was clueless, we went on a Wednesday for their "No Worries Wednesdays" and we had to explain the promotion and the items that were included in the special. Very frustrating! We usually get great service at Outback but not this time. When... More

We stopped at this Outback on a Sunday evening. After getting our water and bread and placing our orders, we headed to the restrooms. Returning, we find the busser clearing off our table. Shortly after sitting down at our booth again, a hostess brings another party to sit at our table. After a time he busser returns with fresh glasses... More
