Outback is a good place to go out to eat when fast food won't cut it. With weekly specials and email coupons they can be fairly reasonable while maintaining quality.

The House Manager last week made the extra mileage to ensure that I ask for him when I got to the place to personally go over the gluten free menu. (I believe his name is Will, but I could be mistaken). Anyways, he took the time to go over the gluten-free menu with me and understood my concerns. He took... More

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.

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

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
