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

Waiter acted like we were bothering him and... More

Sadly displeased with this location. Have been a couple of time hoping for the best. Each time something else disappointed us. Either the poor service or poorly prepared food. Good location but they need to step up their game...

Arrived at 3:20,seated at 3:35 after the "5 minute wait" and seeing several waiting customers walk out. Ordered at 4. Food arrived around 4:30 and was not up to the usual Outback quality. More staff arrived at 4. It felt like 2 waiters and 1 chef were working before 4. This was the worst rdy experience I've ever had at... More

We went to an Outback in Dalton GA recently and thought it was top-notch so we tried our local Outback again. A regrettable experience. My wife ordered prime rib and lobster tail, medium rare. I ordered a filet, medium well. A DIFFERENT SERVER shows up with what purported to be our meal. Prime rib, medium well. Filet, medium rare. No... More

My daughter ordered a steak with shrimp and I ordered a steak salad. We had to request bread which turned out to be very dry and had to... More

Food was good but service was just average. First waiter was so slow getting to us that another one noticed our frustration and took over.

Couldn't get the waitress to get us drink refills. 2 of us ordered rare steaks and the came medium. My husband ordered a medium rare steak and it come rare. His... More

Ask for Hunter for your wait person. He took extra fine care of us making our visit relaxing. Their food was like most Outback restaurants. The food was hot and came quickly. They also provide an AARP discount.

This is pretty much the same Outback Steakhouse chain located in most major cities with the same menu. I wanted a good steak after a long travel day and this fit the bill perfectly.
