Nice place

Rarely get to try a dessert as we can't pass up their Bloomin Onion and the free bread! Had only one small bad experience there in ALL of the many times we've eaten here and I say that's VERY good odds :) and they were quick to fix the problem. We always say we will JUST order a dessert &... read more

Good service, great food, nice selection of drinks and good prices. While I enjoyed the prime rib, others had steaks and the child chicken fingers. The food came fast even though it was busy.

...and training - an ignored activity. Outback is a predictable chain, but unfortunately in many of their restaurants, that includes poor service. Traverse City was no exception. Likely, this can be directly traced to a lack of training. Servers aren't taught how to properly do their jobs. Yet, they still expect the tip to be an ever increasing percentage of... More

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 excellent also. The food... 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
