Stopped in for an early dinner. We were seated right away. Our server Kelly was extremely friendly and helpful. We ordered the new sirloin steak combos. Our food server brought us a bag of fresh bread along with the take-away box for our leftover bloomin onion. That was a nice touch. Pleasant atmosphere and great food!

I stopped here for lunch yesterday and on my way I was really thinking of what I could order that was different. I do get into a slump where I always order the same thing. Lo and Behold, there was a new item on the menu, as if they KNEW I wanted something different. It was GRILLED CHICKEN BISTRO, (at... More

We always do call ahead. That cuts down on wait time. Staff is friendly and food is above average. Tables a tad bit to close.

The WORST filet I have ever had and it was $21. It looked nothing like the photo in the menu, false advertising . The meat was very thin and chewy . I agree with another reviewer about chewy steak. The baked potato was better then the filet, wow! My wife had the ribs and she said they were very salty... More

I'm really not picking on Outback. Maybe my expectations of this chain are too high. There is a Chili's across the street and normally, we eat there based on previous experience. But, my significant other is leaving for Antartica tomorrow and, we wanted something special (we really wanted to share a bottle of Jacobs Creek Shiraz and a great house... More

We are from the UK and I could not wait to return to Outback for a blooming onion. I don't know why more restaurants do do them, I think they are a great starter. The strip loin steaks are done to perfection and the service is good. The only downside is the air conditioning which is too cold.

For $22.99 I got my choice of soup, also a choice of salads, some entrees from which I chose the 12 oz PRIME RIB (done MY way to perfection - thanks to Chef Alex!!!) which included one side - I chose the baked sweet...

We went to the outback after having made a reservation as the last time we went it was so crowded that our wait was in excess of 45 minutes. The food was the best I have ever eaten at this franchise. The steak was cooked exactly as each person asked ( there were 4 present and each had a different... More
