Where's the Staff?

First time here. Came in at 4:05 pm. No wait staff present per the hostess. Had to wait at least 10 to 15 minutes to even get a seat. Waited 8+ minutes before a waitress (not ours), even came to our table. If it hadn't been for the waitress and the good food, the rating would've been lower. Note... read more

Treated my gator daughter & friends after finals to celebrate & before move-out to be well fed for the stress & strain of the next day! Fantastic service, loved the warm bread, coconut shrimp, & of course, the steak, perfectly cooked to order. Worth the extra $$

I went here with my family and ordered a medium rare filet minon with crab legs. When it came out it was like a hockey puck. When we brought it to the servers attention they brought out another filet which was very very rare. I gave up on the steak and just finished my meal but very disappointed as this... More

Well cooked, good grub with attentive staff would recommend to anyone. Only downside was the 45 minute wait as they were so busy but it did not detract from the food.

Stopped for dinner after spending the day at the Florida Museum of Natural History. Everything we expect for an Outback - friendly service, delicious food, comfortable atmosphere. We were not disappointed.

Took a while to get food and had not been here for a while because we like bonefish better. Food is the same, pretty good, but prices a little high for what you get and it was slow this time too.

Made a 630 Saturday night reservation and did not get seated until 700. The staff were mostly college kids who appeared to not know how to handle the pressure of being busy. Food was slow to come out (30 minutes). The manager was young and inexperienced in dealing with the pressure. This place seems to attract drunks and it was... More

Since Outback was very busy with a long wait time, we ate at the bar (even tho we arrived at 6pm). Our steaks were undercooked (better than OVERCOOKED),but were perfect when brought back to us. The asparagus was perfectly grilled,and delish. We enjoyed seeing the "bar workings" as many unique drinks were being mixed, and we were happy to be... More

As a Christmas treat to my friend and her children I asked them to join my daughters and myself for lunch at Outback. I received a gift card and thought it would be nice to ask them to join us. Since we were a party of six I booked seating ahead of time online. When I arrived there were only... More
