Let me say this- I LOVE me some Outback! The food is always good. We took our family (3 kids- 8, 5, 2) and we were told there'd be a 35 min wait, and we got seated in 20 mins., so that was good! Then we ordered and the food took FOR-EVER. The server never apologized about the time and... More

I had eaten at the Outback previously and did not really enjoy it. But, we received some gift cards, so we gave it another try. Well, we were pleasantly surprised. I orders the Victoria Fillet and it was prepared to my taste. The potato soup was good as was the mashed potatoes. Our waitress, Alyssa, was very pleasant and afforded... More

My husband picked up takeout from here today and I honestly cannot believe they are sending food out like what we got. We had the onion blossom which was fine, super greasy but it usually is. He also ordered an Alice springs chicken quesadilla with no mushrooms.... Well, the only thing in the entire quesadilla was a little cheese and... More

This is a solid Outback and I've dined here at least 1/2 dozen times. Service is always good, steak cooked to order, bar area usually not packed so alot of attention by bar tender. My only complaint is the up keep of the chairs, tables ect. Furniture is showing its age. Seems like some attention should be paid on the... More

Blooming onion was good. Rest of our food was dried up stale crap. Server was an air head. Would be hard pressed to go back.

Went out with the girls. I ordered the chicken tenders. They were REALLY overcooked. And it was very difficult to get drink refills. I hadn't been in a long time. Was disappointed to find the quality and service had slipped so badly.

Food was great, just a little pricey for the portions that are served. All in all, a good experience.

If you want NO service and to wait 10 minutes before a server talks to you then here's your place. This is the 3rd time I've received this service. I've even had free gift cards mailed to me due to the bad service here. What's so bad is all the times I've had bad service it's not been busy. Do... More

I recently read reviews and was surprised at the negative ones. I had a wonderful dinner. My server was attentive and pleasant. I had a great frozen margarita! My filet was cooked as ordered, and delicious. I have no complaints about portion size or quality!

We have long been customers of Outback- we used to eat here weekly (at another Outback location) with an average tab over $100.00. Our last visit to Outback was horrible. In December 2013, we were served a raw pork chop, twice. There was no offer to comp the entree, we were just blown off. We aren't looking for anything free,... More
