First time visit

Lauren our server was courteous and professional. She came by often to see if we needed anything. Appetizers, bread and main course came quickly as well as second serving of iced tea. We began with lump crab/avocado mix accompanied with tortilla chips (4/5) for appetizer. We began with Cesar salad... read more

We stopped on a Wednesday evening. My husband had ribs and my daughter and I had the sirloin and shrimp. Our meals were all about a C+. My sirloin was very tough. I took most of it home for the dog. The shrimp were small. The blooming onion was an A-. Excellent but not enough sauce. Had to flag down... More

We waited a few minutes to be seated because the hostess was too busy talking to other employees, then very confused as to where to seat us. Restaurant was almost empty. She sat us far in the back. Server was polite but seemed rushed to wait on only 3 tables. My daughter ordered a sirloin med. it came out a... More

Our waiter Rosendo (Ro) was amazing. They should clone him. His suggestion for our appetizer (crab stuffed mushrooms) was spot on. He kept our iced tea glasses full and even offered a to-go cup for the partial glass when we were done. Our food came in a timely manner and was well prepared (Sirloin Steaks with Grilled Shrimp on the... More

This restaurant seemed to be well run. Food - all of us had steak - was very delicious. Service was superb, too. Our server (Amanda) has a very unique and entertaining personality (in a positive way), very good awareness and outstanding memory.

One of the better run and managed Outbacks. Bar staff has their act together, and I would assume tenured due to the way they work as a team. Whoever is working the grill know how to temp meat perfectly -- sounds easy, but try it when you are jamming.

The food is good as always. Service was super even with a very full restaurant. Best Steaks, lamb and chicken on the barbie.

I was in Fort Myers for one night on business and needed to eat in my hotel room so that I could work. I ordered the take away online, arrived at the restaurant and the server promptly came out, my food was hot and completely accurate as ordered. I ordered the Prime Rib which was AMAZING with the Coconut Shrimp.... More

Outback Restaurant is located on the main thoroughfare of Fort Myers on South Cleveland Avenue near the Bell Tower shops. Parking is limited and is a bit tight. We called ahead so the table was immediately available even during the busy dinner hours. The ambiance was pleasant - lights were not too dark nor too bright, noise level was moderate... More
