Absolutely loved it!

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!

I've always had consistent, delicious, cooked perfectly food at every Outback I h visited, from Washington to Florida, and this location maintained the reputation. The waitress had a great sense of humor and made us feel like royalty with her attention - always there when we needed her. She played right along with my humor and made the meal fun... More

I liked that it was next to the hotel. I had a sirloin, baked potato, and salad. There was no vegetable and the pre-meal bread was probably a heated up packaged product. I don't understand why these restaurants have to be so dark. This is the first time I've been to an Outback Steakhouse. I probably won't return.

Sure there are many steakhouses which offer better fare. You already know which are the 'fancy' steakhouses and the cuts of steak, service, etc. are excellent. However, the average consumer doesn't visit these 'prime' (pardon the pun) locations every week. In addition, most of these chains and/or independents are usually located in and around the bigger metro areas. On the... More

We came to Outback on a Thursday night, seem to have plenty of tables available but was told it would be a ten minutes wait - we found this puzzling? So when we did get seated Karl the manager sat us, I asked about the wait - he explained that is was a staffing issue but apologized for any inconvenience... More
