I sometimes overlook the dining establishments near the interstate and I obviously should not. We had a delightful lunch at the Outback Steakhouse in Cookeville, TN today and I wanted to share that experience with others. The service was excellent. Our server was attentive without being annoying...I really appreciate that! The "choose your own combo" deal from which my wife... More

Great steak and excellent service in typical outback fashion. Great bloomin' onion and French onion soup. Excellent salads and dressings.

The outback is known for their steaks. However, they do offer other items on their menu that I have not tried. The service has always been great, the prices are moderate to expensive. The food is very good and consistent. You get what you ask for in a steak from rare to well done.

We had a gift card to use for the restaurant, which was the primarily reason for our luncheon visit and the fact my wife felt like eating a good steak. She always prefers the top of the line steak...filet mignon cooked medium rare with no seasoning. I decided to try something new off their luncheon menu and ordered the chicken... More

Outback service and food can be inconsistent from one restaurant to another. Having now eaten at the Cookeville TN Outback, our experiences have been very good. Visiting on a Friday night at any restaurant can lead to long waits. Despite the restaurant being full, our wait was only approximately 8-10 minutes. The restaurant was clean, the waitress was very well... More

Typical Outback...can't cook a steak right! In fact they weren't even close. I ordered medium and it was as well done as shoe leather. I'm sorry but I don't send food back...ever!! So choked it down. And vowed to never return for a steak there. Too much money to waste on crap. So disappointed. I'll go to the other steak... More

Typical meal at Outback, but we are never disappointed. This time we tried the Alice Spring chicken which had a topping of mushrooms, bacon and cheese. Because we were sitting at the hospital with a sick relative, I got meals for several relatives. The food was ready when we arrived at take out, everything was hot and delicious.

Traveling along I-40 we stopped here late one evening for dinner. The food was really good and the service was attentive and polite. I ordered the bone-in ribeye and it was cooled perfectly and very flavorful - probably the best marbled steak for the price.
