Typical Outback..not bad

Place is always clean and meals have always been good. Staff is great! One thing I've learned here though is they define cooking their steaks differently here. They don't use the general terminology used everywhere else. A medium rare does not mean medium rare. Just a fyi. We have never had a bad... read more

We had a lovely time, the service was good, the food came as we ordered it, hot and not heavily seasoned. We started with Coconut Shrimp, then we had the Chicken Tenders and the Chop Steak with sauteed mushrooms and onions. Everything was delicious. The manager checked with us to make sure everything was okay and as ordered.

This is your typical chain restaurant- not disgusting but not your favorite place to eat. Nothing here has ever "wowed" me- it's just alright. With that being said, I have personally gotten sick after eating here, as have other people who have gone out with me.

Don't like the new advertising computer on the table. It is distracting and annoying. Used the call waitress function on the device and we had to lift it over our head to get a waitress. We come here very frequently and the food is very good. Try the clam chowder it is very very good! This should be a 4... More

Visited tonight and disappointed again. Ordered the half rack of "baby back ribs". First, they weren't baby back ribs, they were spare ribs. And they must have come from a miniature pig. Their half rack consisted of only 4 ribs. Very small ribs. The steaks some of the others ordered were also very small compared to their prices. And one... More

My son and I went for diner on a Tuesday night. This was the worst dining experience Ever! There was about 30 employees standing around with only a handful of customers. It took 10 minutes for 2 ice teas and over 45 minutes for diner to be served. After 45 minutes and starving I expected the food to be good...... More

Saturday afternoon around 2:30. No line, no waiting. We were put in a dark corner booth with no windows and no view whatsoever. This is a HORRIBLE seat and should never be used unless the place is packed to the gills. Saw a waitress close the blinds on two other groups of people without asking. Both groups complained and were... More

Well it was 7 pm on a Sunday right after the rush. Charged a extra buck for some green veggies, like 8 stalks of asparagus that was burnt! I liked the well seasoned steak, so did my daughter, wife did not. I didn't like the computers on each table, they just wanted to play computer games. Waitress was cleaning off... More

Steak and Lobster was not too bad. Cooked well to order and i'd eat here again. Most chain restaurants are far worse. I'd recommend this one.

Stopped in for a bite with a good friend, we were told the wait would be around 20 minutes. In my opinion, 20 minutes was a VERY good time for the Friday night before Christmas. We were given free samples to try while we waited for our table. We were seated shortly after finishing our samples, and quickly greeted by... More
