We tried to enter this restaurant but had to choke our way through 4-5 employees who were standing in front of the door, smoking cigarettes and talking loudly. We actually made it in the door and waited at the hostess desk for over 5 minutes. No one even noticed that we were there so we walked over to the Monterrey... More

We have dined at this particular Outback several times on our trips to Matthews. It is right behind the Comfort Inn were we stay so it is within walking distance of our hotel. We have always had good service and good food at what we consider a reasonable price.

We had a miserable and pesky fly that drove us crazy during our meal. It tried and tried to land in our salads. When it was swatted, it came right back and tried and tried to land on our steak. We could not hit it and it would continue to return. We told the waitress, but she had no reply... More

I love outback. The steaks are great and the bloomin' onion is one of my fave apps. anywhere, but the service at this outback is consistently poor. No one has ever been rude to us but the attentiveness is sorely lacking. The last two visits have yielded the same results. We are seated and then have to wait about ten... More

Our food was delicious, however, it did come out wrong several times and slow. Our salads did not have dressings. and our sides to our "outback special" 6 oz's were wrong. They were all fixed. Our server was pleasant, as was the manager, mark. We had a surprise anniversary present for our grand parents that was royally messed up as... More

Our family hadn't been to an Outback in years as the one in our hometown always seemed to drop the ball. We were in town for a sporting event with our kids and I had been given a gift certificate at work, so we thought we'd try it again. We arrived at 5:40 PM on a Friday and were greeted... More

Ribs were tough. The service was very slow. The potato was hard. I was very disappointed with outback on this visit. They are usually always great but this time was different. I just think it was the cook. Maybe he had a long night but the food was awful.

Recently went to Outback for dinner. Waiter average not very personable. Maybe he was having a bad day? Stuffed Crab mushrooms , (couldn't find any crab) , also mushroom wasn't cooked. Mentioned to waiter , no apology or mention to a manager. Potato's had no taste, may have been instant. Lobster tail good but very small. Best thing was the... More

My husband and I visited this location following about a six month Outback hiatus. We used to frequent another location in the area and just saw quality and customer go downhill. Well, upon deciding to try this location today, we are ready to eat at Outback once again! We were seated quickly, greeted quickly, and our meals, the 6 and... More
