All is good, staff, service, food selection. You can combine meat choices, I believe, so that is a great feature. Steak is very flavorful. Will eat here again if in vicinity.

We sat in the bar to avoid a wait, lots of nice seating in there. Food came quickly, and though the steak was a little too rare, they cooked it a bit more and it was very good. They are eager to please.

This location is a good Outback. We sat outside and had plenty of shade during lunch. Took a little time to get served as we were in the corner where not as many people were.

The food at Outback isn't that bad, it just isn't that good. I had the lobster tails, rice and asparagus. All were decently prepared. My husband had the prime rib and was disappointed. We used to go to Outback more often before we discovered the nicer "non chain" dining establishments in Rochester and last week's dining experience reminded us why... More

I can always count on a good meal here, they usually cook my steak just how I like it. I've never had any good luck at other steakhouses. So this is my go to place for a good steak. Love their blooming onion too!

I had the urge for spare ribs but when I was offered a combo with sirloin and shrimp I could not resist. I was not disappointed.

It had been over 10 years since I had been to an Outback Steakhouse after a horrendous experience at the Palisades Mall - they forgot I was there! The sirloin steak that I ordered was a perfect medium-rare and very tender. The potato soup was tasty but a bit on the salty side. It was also nice being able to... More

We visit the Outback often, and as usual, it was very good. I love the happy hour & the large glasses of wine they pour. The food was also very good and reasonably priced. I will be back for outback special soon!

I am sorry, but the food was poor. Too much salt on the onion flower, steaks, salad, baked potato and even the little tomatoes used to dress the plate. The waiter kept asking us if we were done and we could easily tell he was trying to flip the table. Honestly, I have eaten at outback before and enjoyed myself,... More

I think the title of my review says it all. What a poor excuse for food. I don't know what animal they butchered, but I have my doubts that it was beef that was on my plate. Tough, overcooked, gristly. I ordered my steak medium rare -- it was cooked exactly the same as someone at the table who ordered... More
