My mother is 83 and the prime rib (rare) was so tough we may bring a chainsaw next time to cut it. The knives are so dull had the butter not been soft, I doubt we would've been able to get any out of its small container.

Being West Sider's we compared our visit to our "West Side" Texas Roadhouse. We both felt the food was better overall, however: there was less of it for the price? I got 5 wonderful chicken tenders compared to 6-8 Roadhouse Chicken critters. My fries were wonderful, like home made, but I admit I missed my sweet potato with butter and... More

This place USED to be good, but the quality and service has gone down tremendously. We had several amazing visits until about a year ago, then the food was so bad that we didn't return until a year later. We decided to visit today, my husband got the steak and I got the outback burger which is usually amazing, but... More

I love to share great reviews, but this is NOT one of them. 12/29/13 our extended family (7 and a baby) went to Outback Steakhouse to share a meal with our marine son home on leave. (He said Outback was his choice because he'd never been to it before.) The waitress was rarely around throughout the meal, drinks not refilled,... More

What a great place to eat. My boyfriend and I hadn't been here in awhile and thought we would eat here before going to a movie and what a great idea. We were seated right away. Our waiter was very friendly and very attentive. We both had sirloin and lobster tail. The steak was seasoned and cooked to perfection and... More

This is a little gem of a steakhouse. When I return home every year my family and I always visit the Outback as my brother lives in Cedar Rapids. My Dad's favourite appetizer is the Bloomin' Onion! The steak was cooked to perfection and the waitress was absolutely brilliant accommodating every request promptly and with a smile. Looking forwards to... More

I had a triple grill of BBQ chicken, baby back ribs and coconut shrimp. The ribs and shrimp were phenomenal, but the chicken was dry and tough. They offered to make me another but I refused. However, after I complimented the coconut shrimp, they offered to bring me a side of coconut shrimp AND a dessert. Wow! They really wanted... More

Sierra was our waitress and she was excellent. This was our first time here. We were greeted at the door and seated right away. Actually, before we ever came in, we figured it must be good because people were willing to park in alternate location due to parking lot re-do on mid-week early evening. Sierra talked to us about the... More

I love this outback! So good! Had the 4 course meal with French onion soup (yum) - Tangy tomato salad dressing, 6 oz outback steak with veggies and Sydney sinful sundae! Super yum! The waitress and staff were very polite as well!
