Short wait, excellent service

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.

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

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.

Went for Fathers Day, arrived early for lunch called ahead and still had to wait. Appeared they were not geared up for the day in terms of wait staff. We all ordered steak 3 of us. Dad's steak was the only one cooked as ordered the other 2 were WELL done. Sent them back and Dad was done when ours... More

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

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
