Great atmosphere

The Outback has updated and dimmed the lights for a romantic date out! Great food and good prices make this a great stop for date night or a night out to celebrate!

We travel across the country and often visit the Outback because it is always the same no matter where you are. Great food, large menu and good drinks...and Boomy wine. We dined in Kalamazoo over the weekend and had all we expected and more! Our server was one of the most professional, personable, genuine, efficient servers we've ever experienced. Lily... More

We were coming back from the Michigan game and it was about 9:30. We left at 10:45 without food. Service very very poor. Will never come back.

We always take our teenage grandsons to this restaurant when we visit. We expected to wait 45 minutes but were taken to our table after about 15 minutes. Delightful. Our hot onion was delivered without plates. Waitress said they were out of plates. So we dug in and dripped the dip across the table. No problem. Drinks delivered, no straws.... More

We went on a Wednesday and had the Wednesday special menu. The waitress was attentive and friendly. Everything we ordered was good, even the desert. Great meal, service, and value. Would return when in the area.

Sometimes things go wrong while dinning out - it happens in every restaurant BUT the mark of a well run restaurant is how you handle a "bad" situation. We had a very bad situation at the Outback but our server communicated what was happening and continued to make sure we had our drinks refilled while we waited (and waited!). And... More

food was good, but a little cold. had to send back to warm up. parking is a problem. neighboring business see impounding cars as a money maker for them. But then they might get sued if something happened on their property? Or patrons might have damaged their lot in the past. . I'd say reservation at a time when parking... More

I frequent this Outback often and love their "Hearts of Gold Mahi". Service is always good and they have recently renovated. Definitely use their "call ahead seating" if you are going during prime hours for dinner. Parking lot is a little small and you have to be careful not to park in the local business lots, but their spots are... More

Yes, Outback is a chain with the same basic menu, but this one is clearly managed well. The staff was friendly and attentive. The food was cooked perfectly. The 8oz Victoria filet was at the perfect temperature and delicious. I would go back to this Outback again.
