We eat here every time we come in town. Good to see Ashley and several others. Came looking for the manager Dwayne and he is gone but was glad to be greeted well by new manager Curtis. Kim was our waitress and made the experience fun. Thank you Outback Family.

My husband and I ordered 2 different steaks here and they were both way over cooked. Mine was not even edible, it was so tough and dry. My husband's was only slightly better. He ordered sauteed mushrooms to go with his steak and they tasted rotten. Mine came with coconut shrimp and they were good but they dipping sauce was... More

The wait staff was great and the crab stuffed mushrooms with the lemon sauce was fantastic. The two steaks we ordered were seasoned nicely but cooked VERY poorly. My medium well NY strip steak was served rare! It wasn't even warm in the thicker parts. We were very disappointed.

There are lots of choices in town for steaks. But we chose to spend our steak money with Dwayne. He always makes you feel like you are eating at his house. It's a nice place and always good food. A good crew of employees. Like I said before, lots of nice steak places in town, we chose here for the... More

We always head for an Outback when on holiday in the states. The decor and menus seem to be the same regardless of location. All staff are friendly and the restaurant was well looked after and clean. As previous years the service, food and price didn't disappoint. We both had steaks and they were cooked exactly as requested. Service was... More

One of our favorite restauants fell down on the job this week - unusual for them. Our server was very good but the steaks for 2 out of 3 in the party were sadly not done as requested. Very disappointing. The one was exchanged but the manager did not handle it well - not the server's fault at all. The... More

I have had Roast Beef in a number of restaurants; and this was my most pleasurable meal of roast beef. The mashed potatoes are real, and they come with just the right amount of garlic. I drink a lot of ice tea; and the servers were at my table refilling the ice tea before the glass was empty. Every day... More

The creamy onion soup and cheeseburger 'soup and sandwich' combo was flavorful and filling. The complimentary loaf of bread was even better when dipped in the soup. Big bun, thick red ripe tomato, shredded lettuce and a tasty burger with a double slice of cheese. Attentive and friendly service. It was fun to hear the staff greet regulars by name.... More

does accept call ahead seating which is highly encouraged ahead of dinner hour. Good waiting seating but does get crowded. Nice private feel seating. steaks are good and bread is delicious! Never had a bad meal. Servers always friendly and always helpful.
