We stop at many Outbacks in out travels. When we aren't sure where to eat, this is our fall back plan when out and about. This one was ok, not the best. I would hesitate to return. We arrived at 4pm or so, and were virtually the only patrons. The hostess still handed us a pager and we had to... More

My steak was delivered cold. I paid extra for a vegetable upgrade. The asparagus was woody and there was not very much of it. I commented to the waitress about the amount and the upcharge. Her answer was I don't make the prices. This Outback was on highway 40 at Silver Springs.

I think this restaurant is indicative of the the Outback chain overall. It's just not what it used to be. The service seems to lack enthusiasm and the food has become ordinary. Time was you could go into an Outback, have a sirloin and come out of there thinking you had just had rib-eye. These days, not so much. The... More

I enjoyed my visit to this Outback. It is an Outback so you know what to expect. The food was good and service was excellent. Dined on a Thursday night and it was a little busy, but no wait for a table and quickly had drinks and salad. I would recommend it to others.

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...
