Good food and service.

We were very pleased with our first visit. We had the most wonderful server! So helpful and attentive. The food was good and quick. Place was packed. Outside dining also. Recommend. Go early because there's a wait.

Have been coming to this Outback for years and in the last 3 yrs have observed the quality of the steak hit bottom. Steak is so stringy and tough that you need a jackhammer to cut it and certainly cannot be chewed. Most disappointing. Know that the food service folks have had to cut back without raising prices to much,... More

I have been a regular or semi-regular for 15 years. My last three visits, all within the last month or so, have all been sub-par. All the issues revolve around quality not service. In my last visit, the bread was burnt on the top and bottom, my Caesar salad had a few clumps of brown lettuce, the tips of the... More

I hadn't been to an Outback Steakhouse for a long time. I had a gift card so we decided to go on my birthday. They don't take reservations but do take "Call Ahead" that you can call in or do online. Made it very easy to do (I did online). The last time we tried to get in we had... More

Best chain steakhouse. I went out of my comfort zone since I ate here on multiple occasions during the week and really enjoyed the pork chop and the seared tuna sesame salad. Very nice managers.

Every part of out meal and experience at this Outback were botched by the horrible staff. Steer clear of this place, folks. The ribs I was served were INEDIBLE they were so tough and burnt. It took a really long time to get anyone to even take our drink order. It took even longer to get our drinks. Our glasses... More

Amazing. We really like Outback around the country. So when we went to this Outback at about 2PM one weekday we were looking forward to a nice steak. Instead we were not greeted at all. We stood at the front desk for a good 10 minutes and no one showed up. I motioned to a waitress after about 5 minutes... More

For a traditional name brand restaurant their food is great and one of the best steak houses in the area. Love this restaurant and we are here 2-3 times a month.

We went to dinner at Outback after a long day of walking and traveling. We usually order our favorite cocktail here because they make them well. We were shocked when our waiter asked for the recipe? Next we ordered filet mignon and it was very difficult to cut through. We have eaten at Outback many times with far better experiences.... More
