Was part of a large group...nobody ordered the same thing. The food was excellent, the service was top-notch, and all orders were delivered together and hot.

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

Good, quick service. Waiter asked if we had any questions about items on the menu, and was friendly, including a pleasant look.

I have not been to an Outback Steakhouse in at least four years and my husband has never been, so I figured it was time I went back because I remembered the food as being excellent and the service prompt....man, oh, man, have times changed!! I ordered Shrimp on the Barbie with a side salad and my husband ordered the... More

Keeping in mind that this is a chain steakhouse, I didn’t have the same expectations I would have if I had been going to a “nicer” place, but even my lowered expectations were not met. It is a shame what they did to the meat here. I ordered a grilled pork chop, which came with garlic mashed potatoes and fresh... More
