The signature sirloin was quite tough (medium rare) even though it was cooked perfectly. There were many families at the restaurant and all seemed to be having a great time. The menu is broad with food for everyone's tastes.

It's an Outback. Chemically tenderize and flavored steaks. Long wait and noisy. Service is good but it truly depends on what staff member you pulled in the rotation.

Everything about our dining experience was excellent. We both ordered the 6 oz Victoria's filet which was prepared exactly as ordered. Our appetizer of stuffed mushrooms was the best I've ever had and not too filling. Our meal came with a choice of soup or salad and one side. The salad with their low fat dressing was very good. I...

The steaks here are consistently cooked to perfection. My wife likes it so much, I can't talk her into trying out any other steakhouse. The pecan salad with crumbled blue cheese and vinaigrette is absolutely the best. The service is always friendly and attentive. Order a couple of Blokes to start off with and you'll be prime for some exceptional... More

Outback just recently started serving lunch. We were excited to have another lunch location near our business. The atmosphere was nice, but the music was too loud. The lunch plates looked boring. No garnishes or fluff. I ordered a new salad from the menu and it was made incorrectly, and the lettuce was brown on the edges. The waitress was... More

We stopped by this restaurant on our way to Chicago. We had parents in laws who could only eat well-done stake thus I had very little expectation on the stake not to mention about general franchise restaurant. However not only the stake turn out tasty and beautifully cooked but also all others were fantastic. The server was attentive our needs... More

Excellent clam soup and that is where the quality ends. First and foremost, the interior design is another canned delivery of mass production. Mass production is not bad if delivered in a good way with respect of the contemproary trends but this one leaves you wondering, am I in a log cabin? Australia or any other chain restaurant in USA...

My husband have been to Outback Steakhouse often and never been disappointed. The manager is great! When I had some questions about the menu, he immediately came over and was more than happy to help me. My husband usually orders a steak and loves them, but I am not a big meat eater, so I order the Salmon and it... More
