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.

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.

This place gave me a great first impression of Outback Steakhouse. The food was cooked perfectly and served quickly, even though the entire place was packed. What made this place so great, however, was the amazing service provided. Our waiter (I believe his name was Morgan) was the best waiter any of us have ever had. He was kind, prompt,... More

Convenient to work, quick, affordable, healthy soup and salad lunch rocks. Pay the extra dollar for all you can eat French onion and salad. Honey wheat bread is the perfect compliment

We know the menu well. Bar is always the centerpiece for us. Have eaten most of the menu. Service is usually good. Some outbacks are becoming shopworn and need refreshing.

It was a birthday celebration and our meal was excellent. We sat at the bar because we had met the bartender earlier and decided to sit there when we came back late at night for dinner. We had salmon and steak and everything was perfect. We also received a free dessert for the birthday.

Serving half a dozen nearby hotels this place gets very busy. As we walked in I was all for leaving but Linda persuaded me to stay and wait. Our wait was only 25 minutes during which time we sat at the bar and had a couple of drinks. Our table staff were friendly and efficient and the food which came... More

Perfect location attached to Comfort Inn for a family gathering after a funeral at Ft Snelling. Server was excellent and food tasty. We always enjoy the food and service at Outback.

Very convenient to eat here as it was attached to our hotel. Service was quick and food was good. Steaks were made just as ordered. A bit pricey, but the convenience factor was worth the price.
