Excellent service, Jermaine was our top waiter !! The meat was cooked exactly how ordered and the sides were really tasty especially the mushrooms and the mashed potatoes. Keep room to share a chocolate thunder from Down Under.

I'm not a big fan of chains, but I like Outback Steakhouse. I always get the same thing (Grilled Lobster Tail dinner), and it's always exactly the same. My only complaint is that they won't sell me a big bag of their croutons, which I think are absolutely yummy.

Yes it a steak place and I do enjoy the sirloin specials but it's the sweet potatoes that we really enjoy. They rub oil on the potatoes before cooking which enhance the baking process. These North Carolina grown potatoes are the best. Also enjoy the salmon sometime!!!

I am typing this review as I am waiting for my waitress/ bartender to return and swipe my card so I can pay. I ate here for lunch, had one of the soup/salad combos- pretty good flavor, lacked a little in the quantity department. The service here is HORRIBLE, I sat at the bar for 5-7 minutes before I was...

My husband and I had been eating at Outback on South Lamar in Austin, Texas. The manager Leo Jackson always made sure we had what we wanted and needed. He always took very good care of his customers. The food and service was always great. Leo Jackson moved to the Outback in San Marcos, Texas. The Outback in San Marcos... More
