This WAS a good place for steaks, but recently closed. They had this excellent dark bread with butter brought to your table with a knife stuck through the bread. Game over!

Food was good; love the blooming onion, everything cooked perfectly. But could not get our server to come back to our table, our drinks were empty for most of the meal. Will not come back.

We do not have an Outback in our city so chose to have lunch here. Realized they just recently opened for lunch Friday-Sunday. Not too many people there for a Friday late-lunch hour. I had a combo shrimp/clam chowder which was great. My son enjoyed his chicken tenders and salad and cheese fries. And we shared the desert trio which... More

When I ordered things off the menu I then had to explain what they were to the server, and point, despite using the exact words from the menu.

Usually visit this location every year when I'm working this area. However management has changed and not for the better. The staff is unorganized and unprofessional. We waited a long time before someone came to take our order and the server was not interested in the job but rather hanging with his coworkers by the bar laughing and giggling. The... More

The Outback has become one of my preferred restaurants when traveling. The quality and vale are consistent. This particular location is no exception, very good food quality with a friendly staff.

I eat here fairly often. Service ranges from totally adequate to very personalized. Food is typical chain fare. As would be expected, some items are better than others. Shrimp on the Barbie are pretty small. The tuna appetizer could have less of a blackened crust but it is always extremely fresh and quite tasty. Ribs are very tender and delicious,... More
