Love this place

I've been here numerous times. I've never had bad service. And love the food. From the minute you walk in you always know that they're there to take care of you. I understand that when it gets busy.. You have to be patient. But that's with any place.

My husband was craving a steak so we went to Outback after a long sabbatical. It was the same as always. Long wait, friendly staff, consistent food. They did have some nice combinations they didn't have last time. My husband got the sirloin with potato and coconut shrimp. He enjoyed it and the steak was done to his liking. I... More

Traveling to Australia a few times, Ive noticed Outback Steakhouses everywhere! The ol ball and chain and I met up with a friend at this location and had a wonderful server. There was a trucker sitting to my left who was in need of company and our server took his break and sat with the man for his dinner. I... More

Had about a 10 minute wait as very busy. Very nice young lady looked after us, but we waited for everything. Starter came then a long wait for salad (waitress apologised for delay). My husbands New York Strip was very tasty and cooked to his liking but my Mahi which I had grilled was very dry no lemon served with... More

We've stopped in here twice for a quick lunch while out shopping and have left very full after having the all-you-can-eat soup and salad lunch combo. The food was good and the service was as well. After a coupon and gift card we paid almost nothing so you cant beat that!

The food here is really not up to Outback standards. They use way too much salt and other seasonings. Essentially they spoiled my ribeye steak. The only reason I gave them an average marking was because my wife's ribs were good. There is too much salt on the outside of the baked potatoes. Not sure I will eat here again.

This was not our first bad steak here but we decided to give it another try after the first time. We will not be back. The steak was not cooked correctly and it tasted like a bad steak. The staff was very pleasant about bringing another item to replace the bad steak, but we really expect a great steak from... More

Went here for a future son-in-laws birthday dinner. Three steaks were ordered all to be cooked differently. All three steaks came out looking as if cooked the same way rare. Sent all three back. Second time just a little better but one had to be sent back a third time. Other two not as ordered but eaten just to avoid... More

We've always like eating at Outback Steak House, but things seem to be going downhill. Same good food quality and interesting menu, but Corporates concern about quality of service excitement as in the past is sorely lacking. Just an observation!

This Outback had a wait staff that were very friendly and accommodating. The portions were a little more than that of other Outbacks and the quality was excellent.
