I usually go there with family for the evening meal. This was the first time I went for lunch as I was meeting with some old friends. they sat the four of us at a table that was too close to others. I accidentally bumped the guy behind me when I was trying to sit in my seat. I have... read more

The service was pretty good (slow getting our drinks) but the food has been terrible. The last 2 times we've been there, I ordered my steak rare. Neither time was it even close to being rare. My husband ordered the prime rib "rare 1+". His came out medium well. Not only was our food not made to order, but the... More

Outback has wonderful steaks, shrimp and Lobster plates. We always have the small sirloin and shrimp appetizers. We like the pecan salad for $1.00 more and its excellent. The servers are so good, we always time our visit for HAPPY HOUR......We stop there and like the location, food, servers and price..

We found Rochester lacking in reasonable good food choice restaurants. A year ago, we found Michaels on our first trip to the area.....absolutely loved it. It was a little more pricey than outback; but not by much. We have been pretty much pleased with the Outback here. I had the Mahi which was very good; however, my husband had the... More

Went to the Outback in Rochester, Minnesota prior to a hockey game. We were a little concerned about wait time. The parking lot was full, but they seated us with no wait. Service was fast and friendly (Kevin) and the steak I purchased was excellent. They also have a drive up service that was very busy. Overall a good experience... More

Hubby and I stopped at Outback tonight for a romantic date night. The service was downright excellent. The waiter named "Dustin" took care of us. He was one step ahead of the game at all times. He noticed that I actually picked off the onions from my salad, and when my loaded potato came later, he even mentioned that he... More

I concur with other reviews here - the chefs need to be either retrained or let go. Over salted, undercooked and slow to get to table (30 minutes plus). Will not be back again unfortunately. Manager did give a small discount, but too many other places in town to bother going again.

I expected to wait in line, judging by the full parking lot, but to my surprise, there was fast seating, and they reflect the usual high quality standards of the Outback chain.

I feel so sorry for the great wait staff like Steve whom waited on us. This could really be a good chain restaurant, but someone is either not checking the cooks qualifications or not training them correctly, We ordered salads, a filet and shrimp skewers. The kitchen forgot to deliver one of our salads and our waiter Steve had to... More
