The service and food is consistently good. The friendly staff is something I can get use to, which it is not unusual for the Gainesville area. Those of us accustomed to the fast paced city life, tend to appreciate this more than the locals. Food is good and price reasonably. Good family time!

During my travel, we went to this outback steakhouse. It was okay. Like all the other outbacks, they couldn't cook it properly and when it returned it was pan seared heavily. Other than that, it was just okay

Service was very slow and inattentive. Ordered drinks which never came which is surprising since alcohol is one of the biggest profit margins for a restaurant. There was a wait to be seated so you would think they would like to get you in and out faster, which wasn't the case. Food was also very average and not typical Outback... More

Normal Outback menu with lobster alternative which was delicious. We were surprised to arrive at happy hour and had to wait a few minutes for our table. Bartender offered us a second drink purchase prior to the end of the happy timing with a voucher to redeem a reduced price drink at dinner...that's a first! My birthday was mentioned and... More

I don't typically review chains because generally if you've been to one chain restaurant, you've been to the other thousands. I stopped in to pick up curbside last week and Sarah immediately welcomed me while she went to grab my food. The food was great (as usual) but it was Sarah's attitude that will make me choose this Outback over... More

We stopped for dinner while traveling to Tampa for college tours. Understand that Gainesville is a college town and restaurants probably see a lot of foot traffic. This particular location is in need of an upgrade. We were sat in the section closest to the parking lot and it had an odor of old musty carpet. The food was good... More

This restorant follows the outback standards. Excellent food, and very fast. It is very easy to park in the mall. There are several promotions too!

Went for lunch and the restaurant was busy but not full. Service was really slow but overall a good experience. Average for an Outback but not horrible.

Visited restaurant at 4:45 p.m. The place was pretty quiet, which is nice. Had to ask for our bread, as it was forgotten. Brought me delicious Alice Springs Chicken...with the smallest...helping...of...French fries I have ever been served. Potatoes are plentiful and cheap. For $ 15.00 I expected more. I didn't get my money's worth. I can cook it at home.... More

My family called ahead for a table since we were a large party. When we got there they informed us that they gave our table away because someone with the same name came in as a party of two (were nine). We had to wait another twenty minutes for a table to open up. The manager tried to remedy the... More
