Always liked Outback but whoever buying their meat needs to buy elsewhere. Third bad steak in the three trips in three city's. From moment I walked in service has been poor. Even now when will my check appear. Service was poor and no one was here! Sad! Steaks should be on a hot plate

Food was overcooked...been a while since we have eaten at Outback. We won't again...Should have known why the parking lot wasn't full and no one was waiting for a table on Friday evening.

Brian is absolutely the best waiter I have ever had. I am 61 years old and eat out at least 3 times a week....voice of experience. He is fast, keeps your drink glass full, makes sure your food is cooked the way you want it, and always is smiling and friendly. He doesn't waste time and comes by your table... More

My wife and I went to Outback on Sat. Mar.14 2015 for our anniversary. We set for a long time waiting on a table. The whole time we were there four tables and five booths were empty. We weren't the only ones waiting so no one was being seated. They called out a name three times that sounded a lot... More

A friend and me decided to grab a quick bite to eat this afternoon. I've eaten at Outback many times before including this one, however tonight I was dissatisfied with the food and service. My friend ordered the Aussie Chicken Cobb Salad and I ordered the Victoria's 6oz filet, cooked median. When the steak arrived it was rare thus I... More

POOR SERVICE AND FOOD. The food was slow to be served. I had to ask the waitress to check on the steaks. When the food arrived the mashed potatoes were cold. At this point I could not find a waiter or waitress so i took the potatoes to the kitchen myself. Everybody was in the kitchen having a good time.... More

One of my kids favorite p,ace to eat at exit 7, however over past year or so it has went downhill. Service is spotty, food poor compared to other outbacksI have visited, slow service, especially for the $$$$. Management needs to get serious and resolve issues. Will probably not be back, to many other good places close by....

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.
