Don't go late...

This Outback was very average. Our service was tired. We were a little lat (9 PM) and our server was having a bad night. She tried real hard but things kept going wrong. A couple were seated next to us and got up and walked out after being ignored. maybe the restaurant was understaffed (?). Maybe... read more

So it's been awhile since we were at Outback Steakhouse and I can at least say the service is better. The blooming onion was good but consumer beware, your stomach might be upset afterward. Where do I start about steaks... I asked for a medium ribeye steak, I got charbroiled steak and the the fat just turned into something you... More

I've been to Outback Steakhouses in probably 8 cities. This was, by far, the worst one. The place was nearly empty during lunch, but it took way too long to get our food. I suppose that is the reason my sandwich was barely lukewarm and my fries were like they had been sitting under a heat lamp for too long.... More

I was home visiting family and we decided to go out for dinner July 4th. Mistake when we agreed on Outback here. We waited 35 minutes for a table, too long for a blooming onion, 45 minutes for our food. I ordered light because I was saving for dessert, when my food arrived I ordered dessert and checked the time.... More

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
