Very Good Dinner

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

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.

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
