It's a chain, yes; but it's good as well.

Yes it's a chain and the menu is the same as one will find in any other Outback in the US. But it does a good job. There can be a wait since it does not take reservations. If you arrive after 8:00 pm you will probably be OK. But on the weekends from 5:00 to 8:00 pm is deadly... read more

I am really not that picky but seriously expect the water to stay at least half full without begging for some...... the food was cold and the filet we ordered was not done well and very cold. I am shocked since we have enjoyed this chain in other locations with much better reviews....... a sorry waste of time to say... More

We took a family group for lunch last week. I ordered the ribeye, one person ordered the house sirloin, another ordered beef tips sandwich. All were very tough and hard to chew. Poor quality for a steakhouse. Next time, I'll go back to Manny's. There is a line at Manny's for a reason; good food and reasonable prices.

We arrived at 9.55 and they close at 10. They gladly seated us and our waitress was pleasant and helpful. Food was quite good. Been there several times and never had a bad experience

Typical outback, about a thirty minute wait on a Friday evening. Staff was friendly. Within walking distance to hotels.

The line at manny's leads you to believe it's worth the wait... It's not. We got to outback at 545 and there was no wait. People did start piling in when we were leaving. I think I heard a hostess say 30 minutes which isn't bad. We had great service. The food was fast, hot and tasty. Service was friendly... More

This is one of the busiest restaurants in Winter Haven, but for me it is one of my least favourites. It is always busy and I feel that you are rushed through your food, so some one else can be seated at your table, the last time I was there, I had barely got up from my table, before it... More

Great and prompt service. Food was excellent as always. Steaks were cooked as requested, and servers were very attentive.

It is well known that Outback traditionally has well prepared, tasty food. However, a little advertised and little known fact is that during "Happy Hour" (I think 4PM - 6PM) many of the appetizers are 1/2 price as well as drink specials. Some of the appetizers we have received at half price are the Bloomin' Onion, Hot Wings, Loaded Fries... More
