In the mood for onion, get a blooming onion. Convenient, tasty, affordable and serviceable. You never go wrong.

At first, I hadn't planned on writing a review and then I thought if it was good why not. There are certainly a lot of arguments about going to chain or franchise restaurants, but I have always felt that the Outback had a pretty nice assortment of good food, with some interesting variations. We were seated immediately, even though the... More

It is always a challenge to write a review of a chain or franchised restaurant. Most of the time the food in one is exactly the same as another. The only changes one can expect to find are in the service or the location. In this case I found the changes in the food too, and this made me a... More

My husband and I stopped in one afternoon because despite all our traveling, we had both never been. There was nothing special about our lunch here.

I'm sorry to say the only highlight to our meal at Outback Steakhouse was the server "Monica". We all had the shrimp & sirloin dinner. @ of the steaks were all grizzley. The buffalo shrimp were overly salty. The scampi had no garlic flavor and were greasy. The side salad was yellow core lettuce. We were greeted by a young... More

Not bad for a chain- its a Decent steak at a decent price. Ive Never had a bad experience At this location. we have Always had a friendly server. Good cocktails. We usually go early after shopping or running errands to avoid the wait. It looks like it gets packed with a long wait on weekends! Good value .

For some reason this restaurant is very popular. We had to wait forever to be seated. The steak here isn't that good. It was okay. Would not eat here again unless I could avoid the wait.

Not bad for a chain steak house, comparable to others but a good basic steak meal. Decent drinks, nice bar. Never a let down cause you don't (or shouldn,t) expect GREAT. Good value.
