Average food and service

I tried their file mignon steak, but it was average...if that. The salad that come with it had coupleinteresting ingredients, but the combination did not work for me. The service was decent, responsive and prompt. Next time I will try something else in the area, they did not win me...

Horrid food. I sent mine back as it was raw - not rare - raw. Came back ok but the rest of my party had finished eating by then. Asked for sauces - they never came. Drinks not filled. Service dreadful. Been to outbacks before and really enjoyed them. This one was a bad experience. My suggestion would be to... More

Outback's have been on the decline in my opinion for sometime. Stopped in to this one for a very pleasant surprise. Ok- They delivered the wrong dishes to our table - twice - But apologized for the mistake over and over - Food was Better than usual - Whoever was in the back cooking really know how to do their...

Been a long time since we visited an Outback. The menu had become rather boring. Returned tonight on a whim. Glad we did. They've changed enough of the menu to make it more interesting (for a chain at any rate). We were promptly seated by a friendly greeter. Our server was there within minutes and we were paid enough attention... More

Outback is average. I would much rather go to Texas roadhouse for only a little more money. I got a porter house there. It was ok. They cook it to your liking. Service was just ok. When we sat down, we waited almost 10 minutes before someone came to talk to us. I am not a huge chain restaurant guy,... More

While Outback is a chain, we have found it to be safe place to eat when in unknown territory. Steak, salad, and potato or vegetable for $9.99 with reliable consistency between all members of the chain. If you want to splurge you can of course, but when in unfamiliar territory most always a safe choice.

Busy place-ate at the bar--2nd visit. Opted for the 6oz sirloin. Great-fresh salad & good bread. Steak was cooked perfectly & so-so for taste. Mashed potatoes too thick & heavy. Excellent, attentive service in a madhouse bar scene. Had a beer w/ my meal--Good deal $20 w/ tip!

Stopped here for dinner during a business trip. We ate late in the evening and were seated promptly. The service was good and friendly. I had one of the steak combos which included dessert. I was surprised at the amount of food for the price, compared to some other chain restaurants. Our server was polite and gave some recommendations of... More

The service could be a little better. Was upset last time we went. Seems they are getting cheap with the cheese fries. You pay for a full order and you get what looks like a half
