Always Good

Outback is very consistent. My family and I enjoy going here. We are all big fans of the cheese fries, which we known are terrible for us. The waitstaff is always friendly and do a good job even when busy. The food is always consistent in quality. I know exactly what I'm going to get from... read more

I experienced the worst service I have ever experienced at a restaurant when I attended a group dinner here on a Tuesday night (so thankful it wasn't on a Friday or Saturday night, otherwise if it is at all possible the service would have been even worse). This restaurant has no clue in how to properly handle a large dinner... More

Great food, our waiter was very informative and nice and funny. Made our visit enjoyable. Drink glasses stayed full. Fast appetizer. Great food quality. Love the bread. Very clean place. Would definitely recommend it. Very close to the theater.

Cleanliness below acceptable and food below average. Not impressive in any way. Don't order shrimps because they serve black ones that r not tasty at all!

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 $$

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: We... More

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.
