We regularly visit this steakhouse and have always enjoyed our meals (but stay away from the Blomin Onion as it is way to greasy). The service has also always been excellent. Though the price is a little high we find with coupons and the Outback Dining card we eat here very reasonalby. Atmosphere is just average - a little dark.

I was in the Chicago area on business but met up with some friends in area at their local Outback Steakhouse. Chain restaurants can be unpredictable when it comes to service but this location was outstanding. The food at Outback is always enjoyable. So this was a pleasant evening and I would certainly dine at this location again.

I have no idea where these people are coming up with these rave reviews ? I have been here numerous times and for the first few years they were pretty good. The last few years has been consistently poor food quality. Love the blooming onion, but when there constantly over cooked and greasy, not very appetizing. The prime rib used... More

We started revisiting this restaurant after some time away. The quality of the food is good. Atmosphere is good. Service is also very good. Good option for a steak house locally. Definitely better than Lonestar.

My wood-grilled steak was too salty for me- so they replaced it AND took it off the grill. Our server, Andi, was a delightful girl. Love the bread!

My wife and I visited this Outback Steakhouse on a Saturday evening and it was very, very busy. We phoned in ahead of time and this helped cut our wait time when we got there. They keep bringing hot bread to the table and it is outstanding. I had the clam chowder before dinner and it was good, but nothing... More

3.5 stars. The bread at the table is good and so are the fried mushrooms. I really like the boomerang shrimp!
