Decided to try this Outback again however it was much worst than the last time. They gave me a chopped salad which most of the lettuce was brown. I would have thrown it out in my own home. They rest of the meal was medicore including the beverage. The place was nearly empty at about 1pm. The service was just... More

We go here for Family events. Usually 10-15 people. Never had a problem. I usually order the prime rib sometimes the Porterhouse. I like the mushrooms and a side salad as the side items. Wines are not too exciting mostly shelf wines but it keeps the price down. Wait time on the Weekends can be up to 2 hours so... More

Whenever my husband and I want a great steak we head to Outback. We always order the 6 oz. Victoria Fillet. I love the salads that come with the entree and the bread is to die for. Our server was courteous and our food was hot and delicious. We have never had a bad meal at Outback and we will... More

I am always impressed at the high quality of the vegetables (dynamite grilled asparagus), seafood, and steaks. Start off with their classic blooming onion, a fun appetizer to share with everyone. Tip, the best winner value steak is the tender, juicy 9 oz. Sirloin Special. A surprise is the Teri Fillet Skewer $15.99 hidden away on the menu but an... More

A Saturday dinner visit with a $50 gift certificate that we wanted to use before it got lost. Service was great. The place was nearly packed and kinda noisy. Perhaps that was mostly just the table next to use and at least one lady who was way louder than needed. Enough of that. The food was OK. My rib-eye steak... More

Everything you'd expect from the Outback Steakhouse with easy going staff and a good atmosphere and layout The bar scene always seems to be busy and good for watching any sports that are on The food is good It can be slow when it is busy but the staff are helpful and friendly

I received a gift card from my workplace and decided to treat my husband and I to a late lunch after taking in a movie. Arrived around 3pm and the place was fairly empty so we opted to sit at the bar. We were immediately greeted by the bartender, Alexsis. She was the lone bartender, but she brought our drinks...

We used to love it. Now with the new management (I suppose - it is new) the service is terrible. At first we noticed that a few months ago, but it could be just one bad experience. Today we went again. Today is Monday - half of the tables were empty. We were seated next to the front door. I... More

According to their website, all their food contains and is cooked in dairy products specifically butter. I told them I was allergic and was a small list of dishes that they could try to make without butter. After I ate my food, I could feel that they had still used dairy products due to the pain it caused me.
