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.

SO....after watching an awesome movie at Tinseltown (highly recommended theater), we went to the Outback Steakhouse for some food. My wife and son and myself decided to order the "New" and Recommended appitizers that they had. EW!!! The "Calimari" was fried styrofoam! The "Crab stuffed mushrooms" were.....Mush stuffed mushrooms! The Artichoke chicken Flatbread was cold and it looked like someone... More

I like many others went to this outback and was highly disappointed! The service was some of the worst I have ever had. The steaks were cooked wrong twice...a medium well steak was sent out medium rare, sent back, and then brought out medium. A steak place that doesn't know how to cook steak! I would never go back.

My husband and I took out two young children here to have a change and we love blooming onions! First the server made rude comments to both my husband and I about the team my husband was wearing and the fact I was slightly 'overdressed' in a sundress considering my husband was dressed like a bum strike 1 NO tip!!...

Went here with a baseball team of around 35 people there was only a couple dozen people in the restaurant when we got there at 4:00 p.m. It took them about 30 minutes to seat us and gave us two waiters to serve us one of which had no clue of what was going on. Food came out cold, dried... More

Not the best Outback I've been to. Food was consistent, but sevice was spotty. Took awhile to get served, waitress "forgot" to bring bread; finally got that at end of meal. Waitress had absolutely no clue about wine menu, nor did she know what prices were or when "happy hour" prices went into effect or which wines were included in... More

I stopped in for a quick meal around 5:45 p.m and asked to be seated at the bar since I was by myself and thought it would be easier to get in and out. I might add that neither the restaurant or bar appeared to be very busy - in fact there were only two other people at the bar.... More

Since I picked this restaurant, it stands to figure that on Father's Day and my being a father that the meal would be outstanding. Not so much. After a 30 minute wait, we were seated and our server came by for drink order and appetizer. Great so far, but the fun was just beginning. Server was slow, but it was... More
