Disappointment

My wife and I went on our first date night in over a month since our baby was born. I couldn't wait for a big steak. I got the 14oz Ribeye but it was loaded with fat. It was so fatty I couldn't hardly eat it. I love outback but should have gotten the New York strip. The waitress was... read more

My husband and I came here for our anniversary and the waitress we had "Alyssa" was extremely slow! We waited for her to come back and take our order and bring the RIGHT drinks for 20 minutes. The restaurant wasn't its normal busy either. Tables that were seated after us, recieved food first! Maybe she forgot to turn our order... More

We decided to have lunch at this Outback location after a long morning of shopping, what a mistake! There was hardly anyone in the dining area, maybe 10 tables in the whole restaurant. We ordered three burgers, a grilled cheese, and a quesadilla. It was 40 minutes before our food ever came out, absolutely ridiculous! There is no reason that... More

I have Celiac Disease and have to follow a strict Gluten Free diet. When Outback first started their gluten free menu (many years ago) my food often made me sick about half the time. In recent years my food is always prepared very safely and it's SO yummy!

My husband and I wanted something different so we went to outback. We sat at the bar and ordered to go. We ordered our drinks and our food we already know that it takes a little longer when you order "well done" so we weren't in a hurry. We finished our drinks and then had another round and waited. We... More

Outback Steakhouse great atmosphere good steaks service was okay must say the steak tasted very good took them a little bit more time than I thought for the steak to get done. A bit overpriced for the product but must saying good variety good food.

had a party of 6 here for dinner. The food was great, service even better. Priced accordingly. I had a bone in ribeye, rare, done just right. sweet potato and broccoli, all was prepared satisfactorily. Our waitress was quite attentive, we never ran out of water or drinks.

Outback needs Kate back to work! However Dominique does a fine job also. Food was fair, just pricey.
