Once again Outback comes through. Read my review on the debacle at Applebys next door which bit the way is the worst restaurant in the Outer Banks. We were seated immediately.

Upon sitting ourselves at the bar, we see two employees, sitting eating lunch, roll their eyes at my husband and I, as if they were bothered by our arrival, the bartender gets up to take our orders, but she failed to wash her hands before making our drinks We left immediately and will never be back

Reading the comments on this Outback made me want to try it. Several people gave it bad marks for service and food but not for this reviewer. We were told there would be about a half hour wait because the wait staff was shorthanded. It was just about 40 minutes before we were seated and a waitress greeted us at... More

We've given this location a couple of chances and it has let us down both times. We love Outback and have been to them everywhere so we were happy to see one available near one of our favorite vacation spots. The wait staff was fine although, I can't say they are overall as friendly as I've come to expect. The... More

This is the 3rd time I have given this chain a chance and the last. Every time I have been to this restaurant it has been ridiculously slow and terrible service. I wonder how a chain can be across the board bad like this? I have visited the sites in different states and they are all the same. Portions are... More

Worst Outback ever. Dined with a party of six. Cons: Steak orders were either over or under cooked. Even the manager agreed that the cook messed up even the second time around. Pros: NONE

Our crew enjoyed being at this Outback. Friendly staff, knowledgable server, and nice management. Great GF selections and the server truly understood not to cross contaminate the food. Didn't even have to ask, the server confidently included it in her conversation with us. It is reassuring to know your server and staff practice GF. It was a lovely evening and... More

The place was almost empty and we actually had to wait ha ha. If waitress had been busy she would have never been able to keep up. There was 6 of us everyone's food wss cold including the bread. Our drinks were always completely empty. Very very poor management. I would never go back even if it was free.

The restaurant was empty but for a few tables, so we thought fast service. Boy were we wrong! Almost An hour to make 2 Mac n' cheeses, tacos and a pasta dish. I would completely understand if they were busy. The worst part was not even the slowness of the service, but our food was cold and our order was... More

I don't even know where to start, as the entire experience was horrendous. Sat for maybe 15 minutes before a server came to greet us (went at 5:30 & the place was all but empty). Drinks took an unusually long time, kids drinks coming out last. Apps were ordered with drinks, 20 minute wait. Had to ask for plates (stupid... More
