We have been coming to this Outback for quite some time. In the beginning, it was a great place to look forward to having decent steak entrees at reasonable prices. Then, the place seem to have gotten lost in their offerings and service. The service has been improving, the food was sometimes just average. During our recent visit this month,... More

Why is this place always packed? The food is good not great. They don't accept reservations, which always astounds me. If they wont take reservations and are going to have do many people standing around waiting for a table, at least have more space for them. Servers constantly saying excuse me to get past with someone's food.

We were regulars, but after the last two visits we are taking this location off our list. We have been going to this location for more than ten years but no more. The last two visits the service was absolutely unacceptable...each time we waited ten minutes or more before a server even acknowledged us. Tonight we waited 10 minutes until... More

It is you standard Outback look but the quality of food is always good. We eat here often and never have a bad meal. You can get Prime Rib any day of the week and the quality is excellent. Compared with other quality restaurants serving Prime Rib, this is about 30% less and just as good. Love their broccoli and... More

We visit this restaurant several times per year. The good thing is that we have multiple sets of friends that like it too. We always get a very good meal. The downside is that they are always busy, so make reservations. Also, keep your eyes open for the tables in the bar. They are first come, first serve.

Looking for an old reliable when in a strange city, led us to the local Outback. Good choice. Service was good, and food was very good as usual. Its nice to see Outback maintaining their quality standards across the country. Recommended.

Quality of meat just average. Service was a little novice. The appetizers are good. The atmosphere was what you would expect.

Our visit included small children and there were quite a few items on the menu that appealed to the kids. In addition to the tasty steaks, one of my favorite dishes is the Alice Springs Chicken. Not exactly for those trying to watch calories (LOL) but very tasty. Our meal was delayed and they comped us dessert to make up... More

We had the slowest service ever at any Outback. There was No one there eating and had to repeatedly flag down a waitress.. It sounded like they were having a party in the kitchen.. everyone was TOO busy cleaning to check on people eating too.

The service is good, the waiters and waitresses are very polite and kind, the atmosphere was ok, not the best, but it wasn't terrible, it was just your decent restaurant night, until the food came. The food was the most mouthwatering, tasty, delicious food item EVER!!! The value was sort of high, but the food was so good, I didn't... More
