Enjoyed Outback Steakhouse

I enjoyed everything about the Outback, the service was great, the food was served promptly and hot. The drinks were made very well. The staff was friendly, I could walk to the restaurant.

Went with an old friend to catch up and have dinner. As someone else mentioned it was a bit dark inside but not enough to have to search for your food. Server was pleasant but a bit over chatty. Food came out done correctly and hot in a reasonably timely manner. Had the "Bloomin Onion" for starters and it was... More

I have to admit I like Outbacks. They are better than other chains because of the food quality. Other chains for the "two for $20" deals, but I'd prefer to pay more and eat better. And I have had my share of "ugh" moments at Outback. In January in Nags Head NC I ordered prime rib at the bar which... More

After moving from Southern Maryland back to Connecticut I had been looking for another Outback to go to. Found one in New London, CT. Was very disappointed. Very dark and dingy. Not very clean. Food was not up to par with my Outback in Maryland, which we went to at least every other week. The wait staff seemed very nice... More

For some reason, I was given a table and was then overlooked for some time. It didn't really bother me because I spent the time checking my email on my phone. As soon as a waiter recognized that I had not been waited upon, the service was amazing and the manager gave me a free dessert!

These days there are so many chain restaurants. Applebees, Chili's, the 99, but I have to admit, I prefer Outback. They offer FREE BLOOMIN ONIONS on Mondays when their sponsered Nascar driver places 10th or better. AND ITS FREE! You do not have to buy anything else to get one. But besides that, the new menu is very nice with... More

It was a snowy Saturday night. We decided to stay close by due to the weather. We have been to the Outback in the past. My daughter was visiting so we gave her the choice. My wife and I were also with my 93 yr young mother. We arrived approximately 7:00 PM and immediately found a booth in the lounge... More

My son and I stayed at the Clarion Hotel in New London while meeting my friends at the Mohegan Sun for a Bellator event. When we checked in, what a surprise to park in back and find this Outback. While location is unique, the restaurant was wonderful. Food was excellent and service was great. Bloomin Burger was so delicious. Would... More

My husband and myself have been to this location several times, there have been equal times of getting the order cooked wrong as getting it cooked correctly. However when and if the issue is brought to the server they have and always do correct it. Sometimes it's just the question of do you want to wait that long for an... More

Management was absolutely horrible! They are not concerned with the guest's satisfaction at all.Only the turnover. Very dirty place and I overheard a custumer complaining that their child was served a MARGARITA in a child's cup. Yes folks.....an actual margariita with tequila. Will not be going back!!!
