Had an absolutely mouth-watering 14 oz rib-eye steak last night (medium-rare), accompanied by steamed broccoli, a caesar salad, and rum/diet coke. The steak melted in my mouth and I was extremely satisfied with it. They served us warm bread (pumpernickel I believe) to start but it tasted a bit stale/old. The caesar salad could be improved upon with some fresh... More

I arrived at the Outback after a day filled with so many appointments I had been unable to eat anything since breakfast. Needless to say I was starved. The parking lot was packed to overflowing but, as I made my way around the lot for the second time a young couple, arm in arm were walking toward a Ford Focus.... More

This was the worst Outback Steakhouse I have ever visited. The service was extremely slow. I had to ask for refills on water and I wasn't halfway finished with my meal. The food was good but not excellent.

On 31 March 2014 me and my wife were in Wilmington for business and pleasure so I wanted to impress her with one of my all time fav places to get a steak! (You get one chance at a first impression) The HOSTESS upon entering did not care if she seated or waited on ANYONE. Her attitude continued the whole... More

We arrived approx. 5pm on Saturday afternoon, waited about 10 minutes. Once seated, the server was at the table, asking for drink orders. We ordered our entrees at the same time, being we had reviewed the menu while waiting to be seated. She promptly returned with drinks and hot bread. Our steaks were cooked as ordered, very tender and the... More

I did a call ahead seating and arrived on time. I limped up to the hostess podium on my cane and requested a table as I am unable to get into a booth. I was handed a beeper and told ten minutes. I waited for thirty minutes and no table, while watching group after group come in, get beepers, and... More

Always enjoy eating at the Outback in Wilmington. The service is always good as is the food. They actually serve a rare steak when you ask for it.

This is the first time we have been in the Outback restaurant since we moved to the Wilmington area four year ago. Since we have cut down on our beef consumption over the last few years, less desire to visit to chain steak establishment. Because of a visit from Sue, our relative from New Jersey, we decided to visit Outback... More

Service poor, medium burger was raw, forgot my beer and took at least 10 minutes to get water refills after asking. This place needs a total overhaul

Seems Outback has listened. After a few less than great meals at this location, it seems that quite possibly someone has made an effort to return to the essentials of restaurantry and OB beginnings. No worries, good food, reasonable prices and friendly staff, thats it. No need for pole dancers, laser light shows, just good food for a reasonable price.... More
