Good steak dinner

I've eaten at this Outback a number of times. I almost always get the outback special, a 6 oz. steak with salad and a baked potato.

Outback consistently offers delicious food, excellent service, and great variety. Servers make the meal a joy. Attentive but non intrusive. Never disappoints.

Food is always Good but there are so many people trying to get in that workers are over worked and can't provide great service. Outback should consider building another restaurant in the area.

Page food was great and the sever we had was nice and attentive. The atmosphere of the place was not too noisy so that you could enjoy dinner conversation and feel relaxed. They had a young man doing balloons for youth of all ages and that was a nice touch. He was not intrusive to your meal.

This was the worst service we have ever had at an Outback Steakhouse! We were seated and our waitress did not come to us for over 10 mins. We finally ordered. 10 minutes later the waitress came to tell me they ran out of what I ordered. So I ordered something different. When our dinners came the waitress bought my... More

Went with my wife and we both ordered the Alice springs chicken with a blooming onion app. Food was just ok-portion size was smaller than they used to be, and not very good. Will not be back.

The Outback chain is in trouble and this place shows why. The place is poorly maintained and generally run down. The service is just good enough. Food quality is poor to average. And yet prices are set at a premium. Even the sign outside is old and faded. No one cares here and so you shouldn't either! At this price... More

I went with my husband to celebrate our anniversary in advanced and we were very pleased with everything. I asked the waiter for something different to drink and he suggested Strawberry Smash Tini, what is a strawberry martini and it is amazing.... I loved, was the best drink I have ever tried.... not too sweet, not too strong... delicious. My... More
