Good meal!

We were traveling back from New York and so we stopped for dinner at this location. Prompt and friendly service. Alyssa was an excellent server. The ahi appetizer was very good. Prime rib and filet were tender and quite tasty.

I like their food and have never had a bad experience at Outback. I feel they should put a note about the special spice they put on they steaks. I do not care for it. If a person didn't know, they could order a steak and get something they didn't like. Other than that, the food is good.

On February 8th my husband and I decided to use a gift card we received for Christmas and go to The Outback Steakhouse for lunch. Upon entering the first thing I noticed was the termperature. It was freezing. Next the restaurant was not full but we had to wait 20 minutes for a table. We decided to have the Bloomin'... More

I can't stand leaving a restaurant thinking I wasted my money! We like the Outback restaurant and have had a lot of good meals there. They have really good deep fried mushrooms and drinks are moderately priced. We were there last week and my wife enjoyed a bone in ribeye. the steak was huge and was cooked just like my... More

Lower end steakhouse that is good for the price you pay. The service was so-so, but the salad was very good. Again, this is a lower end steakhouse so don't expect much

My granddaughter wanted to go here for their specialty fries, so I indulged her. Ordered ribs and they were so dry and meatless they could not be eaten. Waitress shrugged off my comment and I guess I would have sat there with them if the manager had not come by. She removed the ribs from the check and I was... More

It all started when we walked into the door and asked the sever how she was doing and her response was "I am tired and want to go home" then she sat... More

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.
