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

I stopped going to the outback because the service and the quality of the meals were no longer up to par. Then for my birthday I got a gift certificate to outback. Still I didn't go back until I bumped into the manger of the Norwood branch and he urged me to give it another chance. The meals were great,... More

Like a typical Outback, but with very friendly staff! Really wish they'd bring the Shipyard Pumpkin Ale back during the Fall season.

Went in there for dinner, had a good experience. The food tasted good and came up quickly. The server did a great job of explaining the menu, didn't feel rushed at all. The building looked clean. Would return if in that area.

I ordered the steak and my friend the ribs. Less than 30 seconds after receiving our plates the waitress came by see if my steak was cooked as ordered. I stated that I hadn't had any time to check it. She never came back until it was time to clear the table. My friends ribs were discusting. She barely touched... More

Service was good but the steak was dry and everything was not very hot. The children enjoyed their meal but the adults could have done better. Outback is losing its appeal.
