Everything was Great

We were in Harrisonburg to visit James Madison Univ. We got in the night before and had dinner here. We had a sirloin steak ($15.79), an 8oz filet ($24.43) and a 6oz filet ($20.43).

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!

Both orders had ribeye with different sides, but guess what, totally messed up and the add-on shrimp was put with the wrong order as well so... More
