Wished I would have read the other bad reviews.

A friend and me decided to grab a quick bite to eat this afternoon. I've eaten at Outback many times before including this one, however tonight I was dissatisfied with the food and service. My friend ordered the Aussie Chicken Cobb Salad and I ordered the Victoria's 6oz filet, cooked median. When... read more

POOR SERVICE AND FOOD. The food was slow to be served. I had to ask the waitress to check on the steaks. When the food arrived the mashed potatoes were cold. At this point I could not find a waiter or waitress so i took the potatoes to the kitchen myself. Everybody was in the kitchen having a good time.... More

One of my kids favorite p,ace to eat at exit 7, however over past year or so it has went downhill. Service is spotty, food poor compared to other outbacksI have visited, slow service, especially for the $$$$. Management needs to get serious and resolve issues. Will probably not be back, to many other good places close by....

I love outback but this store needs help. I was alone on a Sunday night with few people in the store and it took nearly two hours after I was seated to leave the store. They need training. Don't go there until this place changes.

The food was good, steaks cooked to order and nothing had to be sent back. Wait staff was semi-friendly, while not out right rude they just weren't outgoing as compared to most Outbacks I've been to.

My bride and I decided to give them one more chance at making it right. Several months ago when one of our children was home from college, it was her birthday and she chose Outback. Food was average but service was horrible. Today we were in the area and decided to try them one more time for lunch. Not many... More

Food was warm and fair. Our waitress, once we got one was okay. Other employees were eating from plates of employees that were on break in front of patrons-very poor rating for that. We almost felt like we were putting them out be being there. Glad I had a gift card and it really only cost me time.
