Good Dinner with a lot of Choices

We weren't sure where to go for dinner in Cedar Rapids since we haven't been here in 25 years. Driving through town we found Outback so decided to try. We were greeted with a smile upon entering and were seated at a table that was comfortable for all. Our waiter was one of the best waiters I... read more

My husband and I received a gift card from my sister so we visited Outback for the first time in many years. The atmosphere, meal, and service were pretty good. My husband ordered a chicken sandwich with avocado and he said it was very good. I had a steak and it was not the best I have had, but very... More

Hadn't been here for awhile and boy has it gone downhill! Bloomin onion was burnt, portions were unbelievably small, steaks were overcooked for medium, grilled shrimp was undercooked and cold. The one bright spot was the server, Brittany, who was outstanding. Manager was called and gave us coupons for a return visit and a 15% discount. We won't be back... More

Decided to give this place a second chance after a horrible experience a year ago. Ordered a blooming onion as an appetizer, came out burnt, no biggie. Told them it was burnt and we were not interested in another one. I ordered chicken strips with steamed veggies for a side. I didnt want to order something that could be easy... More

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
