Good Service, Average Food

Ordered an Aussie Chicken Cobb Salad from the lunch menu. Chose crispy chicken. Should have chose grilled. Chicken meat was nearly indistinguishable. Salad arrived with no eggs. Lots of lettuce, but very meager quantities of cheese, bacon and croutons. Asked for blue cheese and honey mustard... read more

Food was great! The wait staff was pleasant and very attentive. Even though this is a chain, it was a great experience.

Service was slow. My husband ordered a beer which arrived well into our dinner. The bread arrived when we were almost finished with our salads. The steaks knives were so dull they wouldn't slice the bread let alone the steaks. My husband asked for another sour cream for his baked potato which came as we were finishing dinner. We have...

went for a luncheon here that a client wanted to visit. Nothing bad, food was 'average', nothing special. Had the smaller steak portions..6 ounces never looked so small!.taste was 'OK'. atmosphere was good, very clean. service was good. Prices were a bit high for what is presented. I'd give it a 6 out of 10.

We went to the Outback for my birthday and the welcome we received was excellent.. Staff was very helpful and our server was excellent, recommending a wonderful red wine for me. We ordered the blooming onion and it was over done, and really greasy. Four of us couldn't finish it. I had a wonderful crunchy salad. He helped us order... More

We bought several ($400.00) Outback gift cards for relatives because we like the food so much. One of them was stolen in the mail and I've pled with Outback offices to advise me where that particular card was used. I NEVER asked for a refund ( as it states it won't on the back of the card ). I just... More

Busy cramped & overall NOT the outback experience my family was hoping for... I mean the waiting room too small, the dining room wayyyy too small and servers and bus people were everywhere yet Who Is Your Server? That's the question... Oh it's the keypad on the table. I think it's a corporate decision to take out the customer service... More

I was hoping that a new Outback would change my opinion on the chain, but I was wrong. I have been to serval Outbacks across the US, and they have consistantly slow or bad service, and the food it good, but the service weighs it down...

Our meals were pretty pathetic for a national chain restaurant. I would expect at least an average experience, if not very good. Waiter Paul was courteous enough, but forgetful. My mother asked for wet wipes 3 times before he remembered to bring them. The only decent meal of the 6 of us was the half rack of ribs my mother... More
