Standard Outback Steakhouse

Outback Steakhouse is always very good to excellent. This steakhouse was very good. We enjoyed the usual Blooming Onion. My wife had the Ahi Tuna and I had a grilled chicken and all you can eat shrimp meal.

They serve bison as an option for burgers..very yummy. You can watch the chefs prepare you food if you like. The atmosphere is country dive bar chic....they serve peanuts in the shell as a snack and you can throw the shells on the stained concrete floor. I've been there when the wait staff broke out in a flashmob style line... More

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. Dressing flavor was below average and dressing portions were laughable. Had to ask for... More

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
