Great Firehouse Salmon.

If you like salmon, the firehouse salmon is really great! The service was good, seating was comfortable, and, of course, the bread was yummy.

The onion petals appetizer was so greasy and burnt we had to send it back twice and it didn't get much better. Our waiter was absolutely horrible. The rest of the food such as the prime rib was actually very good. So kind of hit and miss on this one. The new building they have moved into is fantastic.

We did the online reservation for the Outback. We were told we'd be seated at 6:45. It was about 6:50--and the restaurant was busy for a Saturday night so that was good. The food was very good and so was the service, but the restaurant was very busy! The inside of this Outback looked like none other that I had... More

This was first time to the new location, new building and we won't be back. Service was slow and the food somehow seems not the same as what it used to be. The food was not horrible but it was not the same and not as good as what you are used to at outback. Cant say why this would... More

My husband and I went to Outback Steakhouse for a late lunch. My chicken dish was cooked well and good, not wonderful, but no problems. My husband's choices were very disappointing. He bought the onion petals. They were deep fried to a dark brown and were dried out and tasted burnt. He also bought the appetizer trio. He said the... More

My wife and I and our friends used to love going to Outback. However, since they moved to their new location, it's been not so good. My wife and I went once, and the food and drinks were good, but we had to sit at the bar because there was a long wait for a table. A friend was forced... More

Two huge prime rib tacos. Wow, it was delicious and my wife had the fish tacos and thought they were probably better than Cheddar's which she loves! Glad we had the opportunity to stop and eat there on the way home from Christmas holidays.

Wife and I stopped by here to get some lunch to go. Food came out quick and hot. Sweet tea needed a little assistance from some sugar packets. Lol Ordered steak tacos, tasted okay. Probably wouldn't order again. Fries were hot and crispy. Server Ian was a trip and easy to order with.

We have always had good experiences with Outback so it seemed like a safe choice for this trip. I understand that it is a college town and VERY busy so the waiting was not a problem. The food was VERY disappointing. I'm not even convinced that the filet mignon I ate was really a filet mignon. Our table was very... More

First time at the new location & we were not disappointed. The staff is fantastic from the hostess to bartenders to wait staff. The restaurant was packed when we arrived but we were seated within 5 minutes & our server acted like we were her only customers. Everyone was friendly & efficient & the food was delicious.
