We arrived at 4:30pm... and didn't get fed until 7:30. I have... More

I had take out from the Outback Steakhouse this week and was very disappointed. The steak I ordered was supposed to be seasoned and it wasn't. The steak was also very small and it was tough. My sons garlice mashed potatoes were cold.

They have a new touchscreen on the table to order (does not work) and you can play games for $.99, not free. Ordered a blue steak, it came medium rare, date ordered medium and had to cut off the burnt side of the steak. New Bacon wrapped shrimp for 9.99 gets you 8 shrimp with a postage sized piece of...

I have eaten here many times; the food and service was always very good. However, my recent experience was quite a shock. When I arrived with my family, there were many empty tables yet we were told there would be a 30 min. wait. I asked if we could sit at a table, order something to drink. The hostess, rather... More

Very busy on a Friday night, but made reservations and actually seated five minutes early, no waiting. Our group was hungry after a long day of travel and everyone was pleased with their food selections -- ranging from appetizer only to salad to full entree. A lot of great selections for vegetarians, too. Servers were very courteous, attentive, and friendly.

Props to the waitress who had the table behind us that explained items to her table, they were satisfied. I do hope the sun doesn't shine in your face ! Our waitress did fix the blinds BUT the hostess and servers felt the need to make rude comments !Our waitress didn't and our meals were OVER seasoned and blackened !... More

Delicous steaks, reasonably priced and large portions of sides. Can't beat it. I especially like their ribeye steaks. However, one member of our party had the pork chops and said they were great.

Went there for a birthday celebration. We ordered the current special app to share. The plate arrived and the lemon wedge was dried out and brown and the seared tuna was also dull and dry looking. We tried it any way but the avocado crab stack was outright spoiled. We asked the waiter to have the manager or cook try... More

We went here for a birthday celebration and sat in a booth with 5 adults and two small toddlers. It was a bit cramped, but worked. The meals were reasonably priced and very tasty. The service was average, we couldn't complain, but it wasn't outstanding either. All in all, we will go back again because of the excellent food.
