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

The entrees are moderately sized, but the side items are almost nonexistent. I ordered a steak and shrimp with asparagus. There were four pieces of shrimp and six stalks of asparagus. Our server seemed a little bipolar. Sweet and positive at first then dour when she finally made it back to our table. Then our bill changed before she rang... More

We've eaten here a few times over the years and the food is always good, atmosphere nice, etc. But last weeks visit was nearly perfect and that was all due to staff and management. The waiter was very informative, amiable and attentive, even taught us something about grilling steaks that we didn't know. Manager came over and checked on us... More

For date night, my husband and I went to Outback early on a Saturday evening before the crowds hit "Restaurant Row." The servers were friendly, sitting us at the bar to wait a short while with a pager. After waiting about 15 minutes, our table was ready. Greasy, but still yummy, we had the blooming onion as an appetizer. We... More

We love OUTBACK.. But not this one. We had a nice person take our order. We each ordered the filet. One medium rare & one medium. We received 2 different pieces of meat. Not the filet we had ordered & the green beans were under cooked & the mashed potatoes were cold. I got the soup, it was luke warm.... More

We were seated after a brief wait. Food was good, consistent with other Outback restaurants. The waitstaff was efficient and attentive.

Group of 7 - everyone was pleased with their selections - I had the California Chicken Salad and it was absolutely delicious! It has been years since I have been to an Outback as I wasn't impressed last time I went. I'm glad to have been shown that you can get a very good meal here after all. Our service... More

We weren't expecting a lot since this is a franchise steak house, but the food was excellent. My wife had a filet and I had a ribeye. We both take our steaks medium rare which a lot of restaurants have a hard time doing (it is usually really rare or over cooked, no nice in between). Our steaks were perfectly... More
