Great steak and tuna

This is part of the Outback Steakhouse chains. Steak was cooked to order. The ahi tuna was very good. Service was great. Prices are what you'd expect from an Outback Steakhouse.

Of course The first evening of our buisiness trip we went to The outback restaurant. As always, the first time I order The baby back ribs. Excellent choice. But this was The first time ever I made a complaint because it was very black. It was burned. It is a shame, next time better.

We ate here while doctoring at Mayo Clinic. It was on Veteran's Day and it was really busy but we didn't have to wait very long. The waitress, Crystal, was very good. The food was really tasty and served hot. The Outback we go to back home in Chicago could take some tips from this location. We will probably go... More

Great service, got seated quickly despite the busy parking lot, picked from an eclectic menu (steak tacos were de-lish) and the bloomin' onion is always a great appetizer. Also, warm fresh bread to start you off while you wait for your meal.

We have dined many times at various Outback Steak Houses across the country and this outlet is consistent with what they do. The famous blooming onion was hot, highly seasone; but, overly greasy. The rest of our meals was nice; however, you cannot help by notice the move towards higher prices and significantly smaller portions! It appears Outback is destined... More

This Outback was very good. We chose this restaurant since we were familiar with the chain and were not disappointed. The food and the service were both very good.

Our meals were mediocre. One steak had to be sent back due to not being cooked properly. The potato soup was lukewarm. The sirloins were chewy and way too salty. The waiter was not overly attentive to our needs either. I would not recommend going here....for the money I would recommend texas roadhouse in rochester.

Took my mother in law as she likes somewhat simple food and there is nothing mysterious, adventurous or unpredictable on the menu. I had the new Huckleberry cocktail which was very tasty and the Steakhouse salad. It was a very generous size with cooked to order sirloin on it. The right combination of pecans, blue cheese and dressing made it... More

We stopped for dinner at the Outback in Rochester while visiting family. As can be expected at most Outbacks, the food was very good. I was a little dissatisfied with the service however. There were three of us for dinner and we were waiting along with everyone else. We told the hostess that any seating arrangement would be fine (table,... More
