Birthday dinner

Took my wife for a birthday dinner. Good steaks and other dishes. Service was average. I will go again sometime in the future

I ordered online and was told it was curb-pickup in 30 mins. But after I got there, I waited for almost half of an hour. The receptionist told me the estimated time was always wrong when people ordered online because their system did not know it needed to factor in how busy the restaurant was at the moment. After I...

I usually love The Outback when I travel to the USA but this particular location was disappointing. The atmosphere was grim, the service was lousy, and the place was so dark I could barely read my menu. The Bloomin' Onion (always a hit!) was SO greasy and cold, and the garden salad looked like it had been left outside in... More

Came here with a coworker about an hour before the closed and the service was great! Very friendly staff and the food was cooked well. This was only a few blocks from the Holiday Inn Express so that was nice. I would recommend.

Stopped here for dinner as we were in town for a conference the next day. We shared a pitcher of blackberry sangria that was very good, though fairly small between 3 people. Of course we got a bloomin' onion, which was great. I ordered the chicken tacos, which were perfect, and lots of food for the money. My companions each... More

What can I say - I love Outback. We don't have any in our Canadian Province, so whenever we go stateside, we make it a priority to find one (or more)! The waiter was delightful - even if he was a Bruins fan ;) The meals are always tasty and great value. That's what you can expect from Outback!

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

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...

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...
