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

This was our third visit to this restaurant. We were seated with a minimum amount of stay. Our Server (Ricky) was one of the finest servers we have encountered in the hospitality industry (a Food Captain on an Amtrak Dining Car would tie). He recommended a smaller portion of the Bloom'in Onion.....and we appreciated that. He was not sure if... More

I remember the Outback food as fairly good for the price. Met up with old friends for dinner and conversation. The food has changed! My salmon was dry and no flavor with a sided of uninteresting vegetables. My wife had a steak that was small, cold and full of gristle accompanied by more uninteresting vegetables. One had the nightly special... More

Not my normal place to eat, but was convienient and all of us were in the mood for steak. We were seated promptly. The waitress also came over shortly thereafter and took our drink orders. She came back with those, but brought the wrong drink to my wife. We ordered a Bloomin Onion for an appetizer. We then ordered our... More

I had a poor steak with my last visit but this time was great. Food was very good and service was also. Would come back again.

Our first nice surprise was to see the sign that said "Open for Lunch". It had been years since we had eaten at an Outback Steakhouse, either lunch or dinner. As I indicated above, we were there for lunch. The menu had many choices to satisfy any diner for lunch. My dining companion chose a house salad followed by chicken... More
