Very Cold Inside: AC at max

Carol and I stopped in here on Wednesday for our weekly date night, minus Zoe. The food was good and Jennifer, our waitperson, was VERY GOOD. Only negative was the cold temperatures in the restaurant.

We had a 45 min. wait, but that's common for large cites. The manager was great, he offered a few hors doeuvres to all that were waiting. This was a nice touch and he also went around to the seated customers and asked if everything was OK. After being seated service was good and fast and the food good. A... More

My husband and I have gone to this Outback twice and both times any of our fried appetizers (bloomin' onion, cheese sticks, etc.) tasted like fish or were cooked in oil so dark that you could tell just by looking at them how dark the shortening in the fryer had to have been. Looked, tasted, and smelled awful. When brought... More

Our party dined at this facility twice within three days. The menu provided more than adequate choices with an emphasis on beef which is expected at Outback. As a seafood lover, I had plenty of excellent choices. We found the service excellent with every staff member willing to assist within their capacity. The kitchen plated the meals in such a... More

Amazing server (Andy) was happy and on top of everything during our entire visit. My steak was over cooked, so she had the manager bring me a new one in a flash. They comped my entree since they didn't get the new steak and potato out at the same time. The chef came to the table to make sure my... More

let me begin by saying I don't like chain restaurants. But to give credit where it is due, this outback is run like a independent, because the entire staff cares about getting it right. We stopped after driving from Raleigh. Our steaks arrived very overdone. We were tired and on a schedule, so we resolved to eat them anyway. But... More

Went here for dinner Sunday August 24. When we sat down, it was still very early (around 6pm). Our server (Brandon, who was excellent) informed us upon ordering that they were out of 6 Oz filets. Then, while he was back asking about the price difference for the 9 Oz, they ran out of those as well. I ordered a... More

I don't go to Outback very often. But we went on a Saturday night (it was 5:15 to avoid a crowd!). Still a 25 minute wait (hint, they have call ahead seating which I forgot about). Both the prime rib and ribeye were very tender and Outback gives you several cut sizes to chose from. Between the bread served after... More
