We had a gift certificate to this restaurant and had never been there before. It was a perfect dining experience. There was no wait, but the place was full. Our waitress, Casey D, welcomed us with great enthusiam as we were first time diners and the manager (cannot remember her name, sorry) came to our table twice to see how... More

I visited this restaurant with my mother recently. I had the grilled chicken which was unfortunately overcooked and dry. The bloomin' onion we came for was also a bit overcooked, but still tasty. We tried a couple of the types of shrimp on offer as they are unlimited at the moment. The fried ones had a bit more batter than... More

We were in Mystic CT on vacation and decided to go to Outback on our last night. We went last year after a trip to Foxwoods and it was one of the best meals we ever ate out so being it was only a mere 15 minutes from Mystic it was a no brainer. I had the NY Strip, cooked... More

Typical Outback, main course was good as was "bloomin onion". Only complaint was with lettuce wedge salad, the bottom of which was frozen and slimy.

For a chain restaurant, this is a very good option. We save Outback for special occasions, because the servings are enormous. It's not overly expensive, though. We like the menu, too.

Petite filet looked and tasted more like a hunk of steak. Waiter said that was the way they served a medium well. I have news for him. He needs to go to Lewnes' in Annapolis for a real filet.

The food is very salty. I mean, really very salty. You need a lot to drink with your food. We frequently visit Outback in many States, so we know the food. Which most of the time is great. The service most of the time is good to great. We know what to expect when visiting Outback. Calling ahead does not... More

Wow....salty...salty...salty....can't be very healthy. That's what most franchise food is about though. What can I say...you get plenty but I hope you don't have high blood pressure....it's sure to send it sky high with possibly a stroke included. I think if they lightened up with the salt, the food would become much more palatable. One of my last resort restaurants....just... More
