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

Good food friendly staff. Weekends are busy. Call ahead for reservations! If wait is long , hang by the bar. That is seat yourself. Call ahead is better. Great drinks and desserts. Pricey, but worth it.

I think my title sums up my feelings about this chain. This is the only restaurant I have ever written a letter to. I got back a kind of "so what" appoligy. Food is okay, service is so so. I have been to several of these in different states and perhaps it's my past experience but they all feel the... More
