Never leave hungry.

Always love the bloomin onion. It never disappoints. The steaks are average to above average usually. This visit was on par for our typical and satisfied visit. The Alice Springs Chicken was a bit of a let down this time around. Small portion, kind of dry and a bit skimpy on the cheese and... read more

Stopped in for lunch on a weekday and I had a very enjoyable lunch. Sat at the bar and was served by a wonderful person named April. She made the lunch an enjoyable experience. What a great employee. I had the salmon with steamed vegetables. It was great. The soup and bread were also very good. I enjoyed this restaurant... More

Nice selection of lunch specials reasonable priced and tasty! Service by Matt was very good. Great place to have a meal before going to the new I Max theater across the parking lot. 1/2 a prime rib sandwich with a Cesar salad was great for lunch.

I would like to start off and say that the waitstaff was great but that's all I can say for that! Both my wife and I ordered two different types of steaks and wanted them rare. We now know the difference between raw and rare and they were still cold! My wife said she would just take hers home and... More

Came in at 6:00pm on a Monday night and we were seated immediately. Wait staff was very attentive. They were not pushy and let us take our time. The appetizer came out right away and was very good. Only complaint was that the main course came right on the heels of the salads we ordered. Food was good and the... More

Excellent meal for the money. We had a four course meal for $14.99 soup, salad steak and cheesecake. YUM! One of my favorite restaurants. Wait wasn't long for a weekend and staff was great!

Seated promptly and waitress was at the table almost immediately. She did a great job answering a couple of questions about the menu. Entrée came soon after salad was finished; steaks were cooked as requested; waitress returned throughout to ensure everything was okay. Very good experience at a nationally known chain.

A usual Outback Steakhouse. Good food, good service. A good place to eat. On the outskirts of TC near Walmart and the mall.

Waitress was very friendly and attentive to our table. Registered online so we didn't have to wait when we arrived at 6:15 p.m. Menu has lots of selections including steak, chicken, and seafood. Prices are fair compared to the going rate at restaurants.
