I love outback but this store needs help. I was alone on a Sunday night with few people in the store and it took nearly two hours after I was seated to leave the store. They need training. Don't go there until this place changes.

The food was good, steaks cooked to order and nothing had to be sent back. Wait staff was semi-friendly, while not out right rude they just weren't outgoing as compared to most Outbacks I've been to.

My bride and I decided to give them one more chance at making it right. Several months ago when one of our children was home from college, it was her birthday and she chose Outback. Food was average but service was horrible. Today we were in the area and decided to try them one more time for lunch. Not many... More

Food was warm and fair. Our waitress, once we got one was okay. Other employees were eating from plates of employees that were on break in front of patrons-very poor rating for that. We almost felt like we were putting them out be being there. Glad I had a gift card and it really only cost me time.

I've been to this restaurant numerous times. I travel to Bristol frequently on business, and I often eat by myself. They usually try to steer me toward the bar area, and I will sit there if tables are open. Usually, service is pretty slow, but the staff has been nice and food has been pretty good. Last week, I visited... More

Our waiter was too busy trying to pretend to clean tables so he could watch the football game on tv. Had to ask every time for refills on everything.....Plenty of tables open, but made us wait for a table. Refill on Sprite came out as just carbonated water.....had to ask for everything!!! Waiter acted like we were bothering him and... More
