Order the ribs

Best ribs I have had in years. Good service, good value. The restaurant is kind of hidden. behind the Comfort Inn but good signage on American Blvd. I will defiantly be back on our next trip to the Mall of America.

We ordered our food and it was delicious, but our server never brought any of our food to us personally. The server hardly attended to us the entire night.

What a great experience! It was busy last Sunday at about 6p.m., but we only had to wait about 10 minutes to be seated. Holly, our server, was prompt, courteous, and helpful. The drinks came out fast and so did our bloomin' onion. The onion always makes a fantastic appetizer. My wife and I both had the ribeye steak medium... More

Outback is one of my favorite steakhouses. The steaks are always perfectly seasoned & full of flavor & the side choices are plentiful & very tasty. Our food was hot & tasted great. Only con was service was very slow & food took a long time to get to us even though it was late & not busy. Quite loud.... More

It's usually very crowded, but good food and close to hotels. It is close to Mall of America and several hotels. I was there in December and there were 3 of us for a late dinner after my sister flew in from San Diego for Christmas.

Went for Outback's $12.99 Wednesday special. Steaks were cooked to prefection, loved the loaded baked potato, delivered hot and steamy. They allowed us to take our desserts out, so we could eat it later and enjoy it more.

Finally had opportunity to dine at an Outback. Five o'clock on a Saturday night, and there was already a 15-minute wait for a table ... must be GOOD, eh? Service was fine, waitress checked back on refills. My meal a huge disappointment. Small to medium shrimp on a Caesar salad. Dressing lacking in flavor, should be garlicky. No noticeable Parmesean...

The food is delicious and out of this world and the service was great. We had a fantastic waiter called Aaron P who was amazing recommending food and drinks and was always there when we needed him he was great at checking to see if we were enjoying ourselves would highly recommend this place.

Dined here on a Sunday evening while staying overnight in connected hotel. Place was about 1/3 full, I sat at the bar. Two young ladies were tending bar, they were both friendly enough, on those rare occasions when they spoke to me. For a slow night the service was just plain awful. The food came quickly but was average tasting;... More

Not complaint. I expected a better atmosphere, but it was still very good. I had the salmon: it was great!
