good food, conveniently located, but water forgot to place our order.

Food was good, unfortunately the waiter forgot to place our order, which was irritating because it put us behind schedule

Our Outback is pretty good here, although it's a chain. The food is usually pretty consistent on being good. Service is good. Whole wheat bread loaves is too die for.

My personal favorite is the boneless prime rib with natural juices and horse radish sauce. The veggies are never soggy or overdone. Steaks are also well prepared, tender and juicy. I only ordered the walk about soup once and promptly sent it back as inedible. Maybe it was a bad day for the soup chef.

We had a group of 9 celebrating a birthday. I ordered the Victorian filet mignon that was cooked to perfection! I like it cooked medium well and so many places burn the outside of the steak.... Not this Outback! It was amazing! We had great service and great food. What more could you want??

Had some great ribs which at one point seemed never ending! The 'Blooming onion' is a must have as a starter also.

The steaks were good but there was mold on the onion in both of our salads. I wouldn't have even noticed it but my onion was a large piece with mold all on one side. My husband's was cut into smaller pieces but it was moldy too. We won't eat here again.

Every time I order the prime rib, and it's 40% or more fat and gristle, I say I'll never order it again; tonight was no exception. I even asked our server, Sean, to make sure we got a nice cut, and he assured us that he would. We had a coupon for a free bloomin' onion, but it was so... More

We went with family to eat on Tuesday evening. The restaurant wasn't particularly busy but the service was unbelievably slow and the prices were extremely for the portion size. I ordered a Caesar Salad with shrimp and the amount of lettuce was minimal. The two skewers of shrimp were acceptable. Waited forever for the bill and finally walked out after... More

Took my family here for my daughters birthday. She is gluten free and we had looked on line for a place she could eat without problems. We had called ahead and were promptly seated. Our waiter was very good and kept on top of our table. My daughter was served her food by the manager since it was gluten free.... More

Well this is the first time in quite a while I've visited this location due to bad experiences in this location. The service in the past was usually the issue. It was poor at best. From constant waiting for refills and food to incorrect checks. Well nothing has changed except for the worse. Our food took forever and wasn't even... More
