Another city, another great "Outback" !

Traveling through & staying at a motel on our way to Wisconsin from Florida, my wife & I were treated to a early "Mothers Day" dinner by my wife's son & girlfriend. We dine very often at the Outback in Cape Coral, Fl. & our dinner here that night was among the best. Started off with their famous... read more

Had a business dinner and the service was ok, but half of the steaks were more done than ordered. Generally I have had good experience with the restaurant but this evening they did not match my expectations. But the staff was helpful and very service minded.

This place was pretty good. The Onion appetizer served enough for for four people although it seas just two of us. The Onion soup superb. The warm served roll of bread so so so good. Last but not least the delicious, tender, nicely seasoned medium rare Porterhouse steak. Normally I do no eat red meat. But this place had me... More

I thought the food was good but it took forever to get my check. I felt like I was abandoned by my server.

Three words: Best Server Ever! Kelsie was fast, knowledgeable, efficient, humorous, genuine and friendly as can be. This waitress could soon own this franchise with the tips she no doubt earns (& deserves). We hopped in for a good meal with family (one-year old included) and were completely satisfied with the menu options, food quality, service, atmosphere, value and overall... More

Had two meals here while on holiday. Service great, food wonderful and a good place to keep up with the soccer World Cup. Became hooked on the blooming onion I have got to try to work out that batter, very yummy!

the restaurant was clean and the food was good quality. The server was quick and friendly. Overall though a little too pricey for what you got.

My husband and I were meeting friends for dinner and we arrived a little early so we went to the bar to wait. Bartenders were not friendly. Felt like I was bothering them just to get another drink. Little bit of wait for a table but did not mind that. The four of us were seated in a booth that... More

Went to this restaurant on a very busy night. Only had a 30 minute wait. We didn't mind. It was well worth the wait. We love this food chain and would wait every time knowing that there is always good food and good service. The wait staff were very friendly. The menu was full of choices and everyone found something... More

The food was actually very fresh and tasty, considering it is a chain restaurant. The gratis bread was excellent. Our waiter was very friendly and accommodated our requests for extra seasoning and lemons. My daughter said it was the best steak she ever had (of course, it was her first filet mignon). I would definitely eat there again.
