I love a good bone in ribeye. Oddly enough, Outback is one of the few that know how to cook a steak medium rare. Most places bring me a medium well, every time. Great salad also.

Steak was burnt and loaded mashed potatoes were cold. They started cleaning around me wich has to be done but this was excessive . The only high point was the young host was really friendly and he seated us promptly.

I placed my order online for take away. The email response had a time of 6:34 pm for pick up. I arrived by 6:30, and my order was not ready until after 6:50. No reason given for the delay. I feel they did not start preparing my order until I arrived. If I hadn't already paid, I would have walked... More

Ate at the bar, restaurant was full. Food normal, nothing really special. Outback is always a good place for a steak.

My steak was to be medium and came out well The manager brought out my new steak and never once apologized and then the check was wrong. This was my first and last visit to that... More

I don't know what happened to this place, but this used to be one of my family's favorite places to eat. We went for dinner and there were only about 5 tables occupied. It was a slow evening. We stood and waited for 10 minutes to be seated. There was no hostess. Finally after being seated and getting our order... More

We saw that Outback was open for lunch so we went in to check it our. We were immediately seated and our drink order taken. We didn't want any appetizers so we ordered our entrée, which was the soup and salad combo. We ordered the potato soup and side salad(all you can eat!). The food came out fast, hot, and... More
