Average meal

We sat in the lounge and there was no wait on a Friday night. I got the 4 the holidays special. It was calm chowder, Caesars salad, smoky bacon prime rib, and the cheesecake. The food I liked the most was the calm chowder and the free bread. The service was slow and we had to ask for basic things... read more

Coconut shrimp is a great start. The steaks and burgers are great and the seafood specials are amazing. I just had the mahi-mahi filet and it was perfectly cooked. For an extra $1 get the grilled asparagus – very tasty. For a glass of red wine try the “Little Boomey” Merlot 6 oz. for $4. Or a glass of cold... More

The smell of musk and stale beer hits you as soon as you open the door. In the bar area, the floor was filthy and the carpet looks and smells like it has been there since it opened. The service was poor however after sitting down and realizing how dirty the place was we left. I will never go back... More

This place is is the worst outback we've been to. The service is really bad. We had reservations but we were seated over hour after our reservation. It had a smell to the place and the table we were seated at was sticky. This is not what we are used to for outback. Normally we like outback but we won't... More

We have been coming to Outback for years. Great food neat and clean restaurant friendly atmosphere. Great selection of deserts. And of course their signature Blooming Onions are the best.

This is undoubtedly, the worst Outback Steak House, I have visited for the final time. I wanted to like this restaurant, however, in the past, I have experienced bad service, and food that wasn't cooked properly The final straw was this past week. I visited at around 9 pm, and asked the hostess to seat me. The hostess tried to... More

Start with an “Aussie-Tizer” like the coconut shrimp that everyone can share. The “Bloomin Onion Petals” is another started that everyone can share. Also with starters, you get a fresh baked mini bread loaf at no extra charge. There are three soups and they are all great: baked potato soup, clam chowder, and French onion. I often get the Sirloin... More

The kid's burger and adult burger were both well prepared and tasty. The fish tacos were bland and the coconut shrimp were average. The Caesar salad was soggy.
