My last visit is when my husband and I took our youngest daughter (26yrs) to dinner for her birthday! I enjoyed the personable service from our server and when there was a slight issue it was addressed and corrected immediately.

Much better menu choices, but the service was terrible, never asked about drink refills, got the order wrong, but the cooks did a great job when they got the order correct ! I will give them another try, but hope to get a better wait staff!

We dine here each time that we visit Matthews. We call ahead to get our name on the waiting list so it is seldom that we wait over 10 minutes to be seated. The steaks are really good and we received fast and attentive service.

This experience was much better than the one we had in Sept. We know now if you want a thicker cut of filet, you have to ask for it. My steak was done med-well, however it was not juicy. This was the first (And last) time I have ordered a lobster tail. It was dried out and rubbery. I will... More

Outback food is always great. We love going here but have to make extensive plans just to do it. The wait is ALWAYS "2 hours or more". It is busy but never anymore busy then other places. The girls at the front are rude and I swear they do their best to convince you the wait is too long and... More

Enjoyed the Outback for lunch this week. I had the Outback burger.....no bun and no fries. They added steamed broccoli. Very enjoyable "low carb" lunch.

Steak and Lobster is a winner! I stopped in for dinner while my car was being worked on and was not disappointed. I had the 9oz filet with a lobster tail. The steak melted in my mouth and the tail was perfectly done. Add a Caesar Salad and Mac and Cheese and it was the perfect blend of tastes. I... More

We dine here every time that we visit Matthews and it has always been a pleasant experience. We called ahead for seating and waited only about 3 minutes for our table. The service was great and the steaks were perfect.

As always the food was great, the service was excellent. Unfortunately, the women's restroom was very nasty this time. Server, Justin, did a wonderful job!!!

We went to this restaurant on Saturday evening, 11/15 about 7pm. We knew it would be busy, given the time we were going - so I did the online check-in. It said the wait was 60-70 minutes and recommended we get there at 6:50. We arrived at 6:50 on the button, and when went in, they said our wait would... More
