Great prices! Good food! FILTHY!!!

We had an enjoyable, affordable meal & drinks! Food was really good - 4 courses for $15! This place needs a thorough cleaning! I am really happy I did not get up to walk around until I had finished my meal! BOOM!

We love the new options and combos for lunch and after dining here off and on for more than 10 years, we think our two experiences last month were the best ever. Our server could not have been more pleasant and helpful (no saccharine cloying here--just a genuine effort to be cheerful and efficient and accommodating). Our meal was delivered... More

Been going to various Outbacks for several years. You know what you're getting and you're always satisfied. I've always felt that their steak is just as good often better than those fancy expensive steak places that are considered five star. I always get Victoria's filet and it's always delicious. Steamed veggies always perfect. I even struggle decided on salad or... More

Good food, good service, not loud. Manager was constantly walking around checking on everything. He was very attentive to all the customers and staff needs. Other Outback's could learn from this location.

A family favorite for several items...the fresh warm brown bread loaves, the chopped salad, the garlic mashed potatoes & the prime rib. At 8pm there was a 1/2 hour wait and we got lucky by securing a booth in the bar. Our server took real good care of us and everything was great as usual. We have never had a... More

Haven't been here in a year or so and now I remember why. Even with call-ahead seating, we waited 40 minutes in a very over-crowded entry way. During this long wait with lots of strangers in a very small space, we spotted several empty booths which were empty for a long time. Guess their friends get seated before anyone else.... More

We were going to the movies and this place was right across the street. We had been here many years back and were not impressed. So we did not expect much but it was a positive experience. Service was very good with a very attentive server. The deep fried onion was very tasty but obviously loaded with calories!!!!!! The burgers... More

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
