You would think a steakhouse would have a good hamburger. No. The meat was overground, creating a pate-like consistency. Unplesant. And the special house fries were extremely oversalted (and I like salt). Not a good dining experience. There are much better hamburgers in town. (Hint for visitors -- try Hardwood Smokehouse, about 10 minutes from Outback on US200. Great burgers.)

We traveled to Ocala, FL to celebrate our best friends birthday. There would be six people going to Outback. Against all others negatives, we wanted to take our friends to The Outback. Our friend ordered their special Lobster/Sirloin Steak. If he had a saw, he would still have a hard time getting the meat out of the shell. Sirloin was... More

Dinner tonight was ahead of the usual dinner rush, drinks were before us in record time, tasty, cold, and disappeared way to fast! We order, and almost before we could slice up the warm bread, our meals were there in front of us! What service! Great. Everything was hot, tasty, and delicious.

If your idea of going out for dinner consists of looking at the restaurants website to see if they are accepting reservations or call-aheads...then phoning the restaurant at 5:30pm and being told there is no wait...making an early reservation for 6PM...arriving at 5:55PM....and being told we would have at least a 20 minute wait...which everyone knows usually means longer....then this...

From the sticky floor when you walk in, to the dirty plates, the place is dirty. Sent our salad back because it looked like someone had chewed up the tomatoes and spit them out on the salad. Disgusting. Rib dinners were ordinary. Cheesecake desert tasted off. Too many places to choose from to ever eat here again.

Food is usually good at most Out backs we have been too. The problem is the word "usually". It is not as consistently good as one would like it to be. First visit to this location and had a tough steak. Wife's order was wrong. Service was very slow. Refills on drinks didn't happen until we were almost through eating.... More

I have visited many Outback’s throughout the State of Florida as well as several other states and this is a typical Outback. I Sat at one of the tables in the bar area and ordered a slab of ribs with a baked potato. Ribs were good as was the potato and were as expected from the Outback. What wasn't expected... More

For the second time we visited Outback against my better judgment since our first visit was not good. Friends convinced us to try Outback again. My wife's pork chop was well cooked on one end and raw on the other and was sent back. My steak was very undercooked and had to be sent back. When new food was delivered,... More

Dinner with my "Main Squeeze," last night was delightful when we decided to go to Outback, someplace we haven't been to in ages. Got there early - around 5 pm and was seated immediately. Our server was right-on-the-stick with fresh drinks, and freshly brewed tea. The wife's salmon was perfect, as was my Fillet, done medium and flavorful. Garlic potatoes... More
