A couple things to say first, my parents love Outback and any restaurant can have a bad night but this was just poor management. We ordered a Bloomin onion at our servers first visit to the table, it was delivered with no appetizer plates. I ask for plates and was delivered a stack of plates, the server was unwilling or...

This is the second time we used the call ahead seating and still had to wait for over an hour and half (after being told it would be 10 to 20 minutes). The food was just OK, but our server was good. I am not sure if I will be back, at least not for dinner. We arrived at 6:30... More

There was eight in our party to celebrate a birthday. We all received our salad except for one and it was not served until we were all finished with ours. When we got our steaks, mine and my husbands were over cooked and very dry and tough. Sweet potato was overcooked. We sent back our meals and did not get... More

We were a group of four and were looking for a reasonable variety and the vote was in and Outback it was! NOTE: While they don't take reservations they can and will put you on a "wait list" where it sorta puts you in line so when you get there the wait isn't as long. We registered online for "wait...

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

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... 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
