Okay, but nothing special

Stopped to have an early dinner. Service was slow and the server did not know if they sold Sweet Potato Fries on their menu. Food was average. For what we got I thought the bill was pricy.

I picked up our $88.00 order curbside, after getting home my son asked me why his wings had hair on them. After looking them over there were several like this with little short hairs sticking out. I called the manager and asked about this. He said it's "normal" and it's just the chicken hair, that it comes from the factory... More

I've had lunch or dinner at Outback in a variety of cities and the quality of the food here is on-par with others but I was in for an unpleasant surprise at this one, on my most recent visit. I had purchased a drink at a coffee shop nearby and was told by the hostess at Outback that I wouldn't... More

Even tho we only had to wait five minutes, because we had a reservation they brought us a complimentary hors d'oeuvres. The chef sent a second entree for one of our party because he felt the quality wasn't up to his standard. The steaks and salmon were cooked nicely. The veggies were fresh and not overdone.

The Outback has been doing their Australian Steakhouse thing for a number of years now and they have certainly perfected their routines. You either are a fan or you go elsewhere. We came in later on a Wednesday evening so didn't have to wait to be seated. Service was professional and competent. As a new member of AARP, I was... More

We expected healthier food than what was served. There are options, but prefer organic, grass fed beef. The quality of beef is questionable. Tender yet wonder if it's pieces of meat glued to make steaks.

We went to dinner on a whim and decided that we wanted some steaks. We arrived and I was a bit disturbed to be told that we would have a 15 minute wait on a table because when you look around 1/2 the restaurant is empty. We waited and we seated within the time frame with 3 other families/couples ahead... More

Ordered the small steak and baked potatoe, along with the usual fare that is offered with this type menu. Steak was tough and not particularly tasteful. Price normal for this type chain. Will go back once more, as any restaurant can serve one bad meal once in awhile.

The food was so so but even worse, the staff doesn't reallt care if you are satisfied or not. One person at our table said their steak wasn't cooked very well and the staff said "better luck next time". Wow. Not to mention, it was a birthday for us so needless to say, we won't be going back.
