Have eaten here many times, a family member always chooses it for her birthday. Consistently good. Service has always been good as well. This restaurant always has a wait.

The food is OK if you are really hungry. But if you looking for something very delicious you are at the wrong place. They try to full you with drinks. Before I ordered pitcher of sangria I asked our waiter how many glasses in it. He said there are 6 glasses. It barely filled four. All glasses were full of... More

Salty, greasy, not very good food. And don't let them sit you in a corner. You will never see your server.

We have enjoyed many a meal at this location. The food is well-prepared, service is good, etc. steaks usually arrive exactly as ordered. Plentiful children's menu selections. One knows what one will get a an Outback. Unfortunately, the restaurant will close in October, and "move" to an altogether other than convenient location. Perhaps, the company lost its lease. Otherwise, it... More

Outback is Outback. Like most national chains, you get what you expect no matter where. Not bad but nothing special. Our server was a delight.

We love Outback Steakhouse for their delicious coconut shrimp and their rack of lamb. Their specialty salads are delicious also. Service is usually pretty good, and they are always friendly and helpful.

Stopped here while in the area for business. If you are looking for a good steak Olive Garden can always be counted on. This location was very clean, the staff was friendly and very professional. I had a wedge salad which was ok, but I have never seen balsamic vinaigrette drizzled over blue cheese dressing on a wedge. Interesting taste,... More

We live very close to this Outback and never visited. We were looking for a different place to visit and WOW what a gem. It is a little pricey, but I assure you that you will love it. The service and food is excellent!! The best steak, and lobster ever. Great atmophere for families also.

We walked over from the hotel across the street and really appreciated the convenience of it being so close. We arrived at about 6pm on a Monday and got one of the last tables before I noticed they went on a wait. Our server was awesome, quiet but professional and did an excellent job. Food was really really good. I... More

This restaurant has the best service of any of the Outback restaurants I have ever used. It is in my neighborhood and has constantly maintained excellent service and food. Many other competing restaurants in this neighborhood have changed hands, names or closed while this one continues to shine!
