Decent food

The steak I got was very very good, the beer cold and the wait was next to nothing. However the table we were seated at was rickety and the chair was a tall stool with a back, but not set up or comfortable for a big guys like me 6'1

Possibly the slowest service I have ever had at an Outback. It was not busy, and it took more than an hour to get our food. Disappointing...

We all had water so I don't know the soda price. Anyway, all the meals came out cooked correctly and within a reasonable time. I have... More

A significant cut below the normal Outback. Ribeye was fair, but was very thin and thus hard to cook to medium rare. Wife's cob salad bore no resemblance to any cob salad either of us had ever seen. No tomatoes, no bacon, etc. At best it was chopped greens with grilled chicken (which according to the waitress was the way... More

Typical Outback! Service was good. Steak was overlooked but I was hungry! Bartender took care of me! I love the shrimp and steak. I eat at many of these a month and this one will have me coming back!
