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

Everything was wonderful except the wait. Called ahead of time for a reservation but still had to wait 30 minutes after arriving. Looks like they were understaffed. Counted 16 open tables and still had to wait to be seated. Great service and food once seated. Steak was cooked perfect. Would have been excellent rating if not for wait times.

The fillet mignon and rack of lamb are a top choice for myself. Food and breads are flavorful. Always a good atmosphere, always clean, even the rest rooms were in top condition.

We have been to this restaurant twice in the last 2 months and we're very pleased. The steak was the fillet and was cooked perfect ( so tender). The service was also excellent with the waitress the first visit and waiter the second time. Will be back again soon.

Sat at the bar. Server was slow to take order for a glass of wine and dinner. Salad arrived after 20 minutes and dinner was 30 seconds later. No apology, nothing. I should be glad I didn't order dessert or it would have shown up at the same time. I should have gone to Bojangles.

Terrible service! Our waiter forgot to give us silverware had to flag down a different waiter to get it then our waiter poured tea into my husband's cup that was coke without asking what he had! My husband's burger was undercooked and my steak was burnt needless to say we won't be coming back this is the third time I've... More

Had the porterhouse, 1/2 of it was real good, the other half was too dry and tough. My wife had the same problem, her steak was a bit dry. Not enough bang for the buck, doubt if we go back. There are more places to get a better steak that would not be as pricey...

I didn't like the fact that my salad, which was supposed to be romaine lettuce looked like a regular head of lettuce. Also, they forgot the croutons on mine and my nieces salads. I don't think that I would go back.

For the $ you spend here, it should have been so much better. Ordered the blooming onion to start and it came out in less than 5 minutes. Obviously cooked, and waiting on someone to order it. Bottom part of it was saturated in grease. So much so, I was wishing for a paper napkin to sop some of it... More
