Best menu item: Full Boiled Platter....deee-lish! We love the atmosphere, sitting on the deck listening to music and enjoying seafood - a great way to spend a day.

The Outback is a real gem, very casual and good service. The food arrived very quickly and everything tasted fresh. I ordered the oyster po' boy and was thoroughly impressed, the oysters were plentiful and had a great flavor. Moreover, the hoagie-style bun was light and airy, so it didn't weigh down the sandwich. We will definitely make this our... More

Went back after 11 years, and found the place to be the same fun place with the best seafood platters ever! My favorite is their gator tail and have yet to find any better than at this place. Great music, loved watching the manatees, and sometimes the alligators! Will go back again and again as we are never disappointed and... More

I have wanted to go to this place for years. I never write bad reviews but here goes......... We wanted blue crab but they were very very small. Maybe it was a bad afternoon for the cook. Maybe that was the problem it was afternoon. It was about 2:30 Wed. After driving like what seemed to be 2hrs. because I-95... More

Lots of seafood. They need better utensils to eat the food with. When I asked for crab crackers or a mallet to crack my crab, I was provided with a nut cracker. No metal silverware, had to make do with fingers and plastic forks. No towelettes to clean yourself at the table. You needed to go to the restroom to... More

Crabs were overcooked and mushy. Potatoes were under cooked. Portions were varied and large. Too much of a bad thing is nothing to brag about. Lots of variety was served at our table and none of it was that good for the price. Restaurant has indoor and outside eating areas. Inside was dusty and unkempt. Restrooms were filthy with clogged...

The best dammed seafood boil I have ever experienced. Snow crab, crawfish, clams, mussels, shrimp, kielbasa , mushrooms, red russet potatoes, broccoli, and corn on the cob. All covered in old bay seasonings. And if you think that you are your significant other can finish off a whole boil together? Think again. I can put away some seafood but a... More

First time coming, but won't be the last! We came at 9:30PM after a long day. They were happy to see us and we didn't feel rushed. Our server, Kayla, was totally sweet and happy to serve us! We ordered two half platters - one boiled and one grilled. My family thoroughly enjoyed both. We had plenty of food to... More

Food was awesome and lots of it. The 1/2 platter is huge, so better be hungry or bring lots of people. The river was beautiful.
