Great food and speedy, accurate service - To Go!

I received a gift card and free appetizer card for Christmas. I was near the Outback at an evening meeting and decided to use these to get a to-go dinner for my husband and I. My order was taken immediately upon arrival. I enjoyed a tasty beverage while my food was prepared, and that service was... read more

We keep waiting for this chain to cheapen their standards and they don't. We went on a very busy night and they got us in with a short wait and got is through.

We stopped in far a late lunch after a movie next door. The service was excellent and the prime rib was excellent. I have never had a bad experience with Outback, and have eaten there fairly often. Always good food and service.

We are big fans of Outback Steakhouses and this one doesn't disappoint. We live 50 miles away and when we are in the area this is always our choice. The food is consistently good, fresh and prepared to our liking. We like sitting in the bar area. Today our server, Ben, was very friendly and did an excellent job.

We kind of knew what to expect and they surely lived up to the Outback hype. The food was good as always and the wait staff as friendly too.

We live locally and eat here frequently. That pretty much says it all. They have great menu items, immaculately clean dining and great servers. They are always friendly and greeting you with a smile at the door and the managers always take great pride in making sure you enjoy your meal. Never a bad meal here....in TC this is a... More

Not only was the steak great, the service was wonderful as well. Because of this, it was a very busy place.

We were staying at Great Wolf Lodge and decided to get off property. Outback is located relatively close. We were seated right away and our server was prompted. He took care of us. No complaints. We did present a coupon for $5, which was not on the bill. I brought it to his attention and he quickly corrected it. Food... More

Outback is my favorite restaurant. My family and I typically eat at Outback in Novi, MI once or twice a month. So I was a little disappointed with the food at the Traverse City location. I should have known when the parking lot was not crowded. We waited a long time (7-8 minutes) after being seated to be greeted by... More

For a change of pace the DW (she likes steak) and I grabbed a casual lunch here. We each got the 6 oz specialty steaks. They were excellent and very reasonable. For a side I got the sweet potato. I had hardly started eating when the waitress showed up with a complimentary second sweet potato and apologized for the smallish... More
