Surprisingly good meal with colleagues

I am not one for chains, but timing, location, and what people wanted dictated a trip to Outback. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food and the service was great too. We had a little trouble with the electronic ordering at first, but got the hang of it. After take-out sandwiches and... read more

Apparently, word hasn't gotten out about the new lunch hours because on this particular Saturday there weren't 10 people in the restaurant. That's too bad, because the food is excellent and the service is top-notch. My spicy burger arrived just as ordered (well-done) and the fries were well-done and well-seasoned. My wife's fish arrived just as she asked (very little... More

We like the steaks at outback. Yesterday we decided to try something different. I ordered the Maple mustard glazed pork chops. They were boneless and too thin (less then 1/2") for a decent pork chop. They had the texture institutional meat and tasted of too much infused seasonings. Not worth $14.00. My wife had the lobster tails (grilled) . She... More

Went with 4 other family members on New Years Day for dinner. We made reservations for 5pm. When we arrived to a crowded waiting area, the receptionist said it would be 15 minutes, even though we could see a dozen empty tables. After the 15 minutes waiting, we inquired while everyone had to wait and tables were available. The receptionist... More

We visited this outback with a group of 11 people. We waited 45 minutes to be seated. Drink orders/appetizers and kids meals were ordered first... kids got their meals, apps came much later... we ordered dinners as well... after apps went in. our Meals took a long time. 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
