Fast and tasty with the usual Outback choices. Husband had prime rib and loved it with the broccoli and cheese sauce ($1.00 extra) and loaded baked potato. I had loaded baked potato with unlimited garlic shrimp. Very good, although the shrimp was very small. Their computer system broke down and we were unable to get our bill processed, so after...

Don't care for any of the appetizers. Dinners are good. They really need to bring back the Moonshine dishes. They were super fantastic and very filling. Really like the bread they serve. Drinks are good also.

Great food especially the ribs. They are finger licking good. The sauce is excellent and the side items are also tasty.

After a reasonable wait for a table on Mother's Day, seating was quick and surprisingly comfortable. Our waitress was efficient and friendly. The rib-eye and fixings were remarkable. A great place

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 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). 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

Great and friendly staff. The 12 ounce prime rib was over fatty and was tough. The rest was O.K. Management responsibility for food quality.
