The prices may seem reasonable, but the quality of the food sucks. I had to send my steak back twice because medium rare seemed beyond their capabilities. Not that it mattered much--the steak was thin, tough, and tasteless all three times.

If you have a local Outback back home, save your dining experience for there. We went here on the spur of the moment due to time and we were sorry after. Meals lay heavy and I've had much better entrees and service at home. If you like chain restaurants and the same dining experiences, I guess it's for you but... More

Very pleasant staff and a good service. We went there for a late lunch and had the "Happy hour" nachos (really good), the Porterhouse (super !), and the sirloin steaks (also perfect). Sides are a bit small. It took less than a minute from emptying the cola until we had a refill. Great prices for a very good meal. If... More

Food tasted good, but the sides were very small portions. In fact, my son ordered the same meal, but the kids version....my meal was the exact same size as his. I should've ordered the kids meal and saved some money.

From the minute we walked in the staff fell over themselves being polite and attentive. The steak however was fairly "chewy" and not very moist. Steaks I buy on sale - cheap - at Safeway and broil at home are better! This is not what you expect when eating out. All in all an o.k. meal for the price but... More

The training of the staff is very impressive - our waitperson took our order by memory and got it 100% correct. My wife's steak was good — unfortunately mine was poor; overcooked and didn't seem to be of good quality. Atmosphere pleasant. Prices moderate.

There were four in our party for dinner. We did not have to wait, immediately attended by the waiter for the drink orders. Each ordered a different entree, 2 different type steaks, 1 chicken, 1 pork chop. There were no complaints from any. The bread was hot when delivered to table. The salads were fresh and crisp. The 4 of... More

Great service. Great food. Wonderful atmosphere. One of the best outbacks that I have been to. The porterhouse steak was out of this world. The mixed vegetables were awesome. The blooming onion was huge if not a little overcooked. We're definitely coming back.

We tried to find a "local" non-chain restaurant, but could not find one without a long wait. Great service by Kevin, who knew the menu very well and made great recommendations. If you like steak and large portions, this is an excellent choice.
