My family of 13 was vacationing in Outer Banks and chose this restaurant for one of our evening meals. The food was excellent and so was the service. Our waiter was training another waiter and we were seated and served and was out of the restaurant in an hour. Awesome experience.

We were seated right away being that we got there around 8 PM. Our waiter was very nice although you're very slow. Didn't see much of him after he bought us our food. The food was good, no complaints.

Called ahead for "call ahead seating" for a party of 10. We were told one hour. Showed up 35 min later and we were not on the list. Even when we explained there must be some mistake, they said it would still be at least another hour as now there are "2 more large parties ahead of you." What is... More

I ate here twice during my stay - 1st time the service and food were excellent. Server was very friendly and efficient - food was delivered promptly and drink kept refilled. Second visit I got seated in the bar - it was terribly noisy and my server was overloaded - tried hard and the food fine but the atmosphere didn't... More

Just an overall bad experience. Even when I emailed the manager directly about our service, there was no response. With all the great places to eat here, go somewhere where they care about the customer experience.

Food was good. The special promotions were a bargain. Service was good. Basic Outback. Though better than the one in NYC.

Slow horrible experience. Waiter was too interested in "friend" at other table. After check was picked up, he was to busy talking to get my card charged so we could leave. Then sitting in his friends lap and kissing him on the cheek was the icing on the cake. Poor management and poor character on waiter.

Always a great place to eat, steaks are always cooked the same way and they always taste great. The wait staff is always cheerfully and speedy. They do need a better selection of beer on tap, no stouts or porters...

Just about like all the rest but service was very good. Good alternative to seafood. I would recommend the drive up and drive away service

Great steak...very consistent and always good. Went on a busy Saturday evening but got there early,which I would recommend to reduce the wait time. Excellent meal!
