Could be better, just a little disappointed with our visit. Stopped in for a early dinner on a Saturday night around four. Started off by ordering a calamari appetizer, just a little bit overdone and lacking in the quantity of the dip sauce. Service was not on point during this visit a little slow and we had to ask for... More

Probably the worst dining experience I have ever had...and I'm 73, so I've eaten out a lot. Seven in our group to celebrate my son's 40th birthday. Ordered a bloomin' onion, which was rather small, over cooked and very greasy...like maybe they reheated somehow. Four of us ordered steaks and none were cooked as ordered...no where close (all under cooked)... More

This entire experience was a pleasant surpirse. I wasn't expecting anything different other than the usual decent service and decent food at most Outbacks. But I have to say this location is outstanding. The staff were friendly and very attentive. Even the servers who weren't assigned to our table were friendly and personable. The Outback Special steak with the classic... More

We went on a Friday night and the wait was very long. Next time we know to call ahead for a reservation. The waitress was excellent and very attentive. The food was great. An all around wonderful experience. We went the following day for lunch and it was horrid; overcooked chicken and burned asparagus. Disappointing. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde... More

I really really enjoy going to this Outback when we're down in Nags Head. All of the servers are great at making you feel welcome. They all do there best to fulfill whatever needs you have. And the food is excellent.

We ate here with my 3 kids. My service was good. The food was normal outback food. We didn't have to wait for our table (we arrived a little early). Kids enjoyed the steak and chicken. My steak was fair.

We went to Outback in August in Nags Head because we had gift cards to use. It was average food with average service - basically it was you average Outback visit. The one thing that kept me from giving it a 4 star rating was the ribs that two of our six member party ordered - they were over cooked,... More

It is seldom I call management to compliment them after our meal and also give high recommendations on a website, but our experience tonight totally deserves multiple commendations; first and foremost to our EXCELLENT waiter Ivan H, and also to the rest of the staff and the manager James. We dined here around 7pm on 8/27/14. We were promptly seated,... More

It was outback. It is same food as every other outback. The waitress was great and once management got involved his help was great and took care of us without asking. Food just took way too long to come out nearly 45 minutes. Steaks over done. Kids meal came out ten minutes after the rest of the food because they... More
