Went to Outback last Saturday night 08-02-14 after shopping with my daughter. We have been to this restaurant several times before and everything was very good but this time it was awful. 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.

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!!...
