Nice Dinner

I do not usually eat at or review the major chains but circumstances found me here for dinner this week. Since I was alone and the place was hopping I found a seat at the bar. The staff were friendly and helpful and made me feel right at home. My meal was up to expectations and I would return... read more

Just down the street from the Courtyard Marriott is this great Australian Restaurant. Reasonable prices, excellent food and good service.

They advertised online all you can eat shrimp with a filet and 2 sides for $15.99. We get to the restaurant and it is $16.99 with a sirloin and 1 side. We waited 45 mins (Saturday at 1:30 pm) and never got any food so, we left. Never returning. Misleading advertising and HORRIBLE service.

Food and service was good. The restarant is attached to Comfort Inn Airport (where we were staying). A bit crowded but good.

We ate at the Outback because of its proximity to our hotel. We were impressed with the service and the food quality, but our experience was diminished because of our experience trying to get to the restrooms. The video game consoles between the restaurant and the restrooms was very crowded with children who seemed to care less that this was... More

The menu is a bit pricey, and the food is just OK. The place is super busy and the service was good, but not great. I felt like one of many... nothing special here.

The food was as good as can be expected from an Outback. The service was also pretty fast but the servers were not very friendly. They saw that my friend and I were the youngest at the bar and treated us as though we weren't really there.

While on vacation to mall of america we were looking for someplace nice to eat at during the evening after a long day at the mall. We found an Outback located close to the mall and our hotel and checked it out. The food was great and service was fast and friendly. We went back a second evening and ate... More

Share floor with the hotel Comfort Inn so on weekends the place is full. The service is fast and the food is excellent, the cost-benefit ratio is fair. The average cost per person is 25 usd. On weekend days will take you about 20 minutes to get assigned table.
