What else could go wrong?

Decided to celebrate my son's birthday at this place which is close to his college. Ordered drinks and got no straws - had to ask for them. Had to ask for the bread as well, which did not come 15 minutes after we've ordered the food. My wife ordered a flatiron steak and got a sirloin. I ordered... read more

Generally my experience with Outback Steak House restaurants has been good, except for the one in Wilmington, NC. During the past year we had two bad experiences at this restaurant, but decided to give it one more try. Big mistake. Our group (me, my wife, our son and his wife) are not "nit-pickers" and have a world of experience with... More

Was here on a business trip and decided to do the Curbside Carry-Out. They honored the FREE Bloomin' Onion special on Monday night and were extremely accommodating. Service was fast & friendly. Would definitely return here again.

My husband, myself and our 3 year old daughter love the outback! We always get a blooming onion, my husband aways gets prime rib or a filet, my daughter loves steak. I am a vegetarian so I usually get a salad and now a mini milkshake..they're so good! Keep up the good work outback! :)

Started out a little shaky with the first beer being flat and the replacement as well. Our waitress, Kristen, was quick to resolve the issue each time. Our orders came out perfect. It was the first time I had a prime rib cooked on a woodfire and it was fantastic. Had the rest of my wife's petit filet and it... More

Outback food is about the same everywhere. Our meal was prepared well. The service was outstanding! If our drinks started to get low, another appeared. Overall, we had a great experience.

Most Outback's are predictable and reliable. This one is no exception. The food was great and the service was even better. You just can't beat that Outback Special!! In a good location, clean, and well maintained.

Having been a longtime fan of Outback Steakhouse, we were very pleased to find one close to our new home after moving from CA to NC. However, the Wilmington, NC location has been nothing but a disappointment each time we visit. Hairs in the salad, hairs beneath the entrée, and meager attempts by management to make things right. Sorry Outback,... More

I travel to Wilmington, North Carolina at least once a month and this Outback Restaurant is near the location where I attend a meeting. I know from past experiences that I never have to wait and can be seated quickly and the food and at any Outback is always GREAT. My waiter this trip, David R., was super on serving... More
