We were very disappointed with the portions of our meal. They seemed to be child portions but with big boy prices. We will find another place next time for our anniversary.

The food was great. It was very busy and we had to wait quite a while for an appetizer but the waitress, chef, and manager came to apologize for the wait. They didn't charge for it and the manager gave us a 15% off the entire bill! We had not complained so we were very surprised and pleased. The steak... More

We live nearby so we have eaten at this OutbAck no less than 50 times over the years. It was our "go to" restaurant but over the past year it has gone way downhill. We always have loved the prime rib but the last 3 times it has been prepared horribly. We always order MR but it comes to us... More

One of the steaks ordered medium rare was almost raw. It looked like only one side was grilled. Another steak was ordered medium, but was closer to rare. Service was barely okay. For the prices we paid, we expected more; a lot more. We will not go back to that Outback. Quality of food was more in line with a... More

We came here twice in our 2.5 day getaway! The food was quite tasty, the staff members were awesome, and it was clean. The clam chowder was on point, the steak was perfect, the apple martini was done right, and the atmosphere was nice. Would go back!

Usually Outback is a great place to eat, but I placed a to go order so we could relax in the room. My "premium salad" was terrible. The lettuce had been frozen in the cooler and was nasty. Dressing wasn't in the bag. We ordered 2 hamburgers with fries. Burgers were good, fries were half cooked and cold. I ended... More

We noticed that our order was taking a long time but we had no where else to be so we simply waited. Without even getting a complaint the manager announced that she would comp our meal. Apparently our first meal had been burned. Great way to get repeat business.

I will say this particular Outback is one of the better Outback's in proximity to our home. We will always choose it over the one in Winston or Hickory hands down. Out last visit was the past weekend, we were a party of 8. We were attended to quickly, other wait staff assisted when we had a spill at our... More

We have always enjoyed Outback and find that it is a chain that generally has good and reliable food. However, the Outback in Blowing Rock is inconsistent at best. After a day on the trail, we wanted a good meal. We both ordered the crispy lobster tacos which comes normally with fries. Our tacos arrived at the table and we... More
