As good as any Outback location.

We did the call ahead option as we were on our way home to the Tampa Bay Area. Upon arrival during a busy Saturday night we were seated in about 25 minutes. Our server was friendly and attentive however you could tell she was pretty busy. Our appetizer and salads came out pretty quick as did the... read more

Never had a bad steak here! Service is always attentive. Had the "outback special" - a budget sirloin steak - well seasoned tender and delicious. Very good value - sides are always good too - Baked potatoes large and always fresh. Broccoli cooked perfectly. Side salad fresh and tasty. Small bread loaves also very good. Classic Blooming Onion to get... More

I love the carry out option. No need to wait for a table you can order online or call in your order and they walk it out to your car. How convenient! The food is a little salty for my taste but over all delish!

Being in town for the night we decided to try the Outback as we have heard rave reviews. Sadly, my first experience is surely lacking in quality. My "cooked to order" steak was far from the medium requested and had to be sent back. In place of a new medium steak being given, they re-cooked the steak which tasted more... More

The filet mignon and lobster is always cooked to perfection. I miss the spinach and artichoke dip they serve. The Alice Sorings chicken is good also. The service has not disappointed me yet.

This place knows how to prepare steaks, for sure. I have yet to be disappointed by a steak at any Outback, so I knew that I would enjoy my steak. What surprised me was the quality of the Caesar Salad and the desserts. We went on a Wednesday, so we bought the 3-course meals from the "special" menu. For the... More

Great appetizer and friendly servers started the meal off right. Then our food quality was fantastic. Server anticipated every need and was the most polite I have had in a long time!

I had the porterhouse rare, my husband had the port "porterhouse." We both enjoyed the well cooked meal. Since it was Sunday afternoon, we had the special with dessert which was particularly good. (We seldom get dessert.) The server recognized us and even remembered my husband's special requests.

Near major roads. Convenient parking. Diverse menu with much more than steak. Some foods may be greasy, eg deep fried onions, which is to be expected. Good service. Pleasant dining room.
