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

Overall meal and prices were fine. Wish Outback would go back to having good steak. This has been a issue for awhile now, using lower grade meat. Otherwise, love the rest of the menu.

We waited 12... More

The wait to get in is not that bad and the food and service are always great. Easy parking and close to a local movie theater if this happens to be a date night.

We ordered several appetizers to share and the blooming onion.. Chicken wings were meaty and good.. Stuffed mushrooms with lemon sauce were disappointing.. too much lemon... the rest was good too.. waiter was busy behind the bar too, so we had to wait awhile on our check.. but he was really really helpful about taking our order..

Visited Outback last night (12/26). It was moderately busy so we sat at the bar to order food. McKenzie was one of the team of 3 bartenders who waited on us. She seemed efficient at first. Things changed for the worse. After waiting about 35 minutes for our food to come, I reviewed our check that was placed in front... More

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
