Great Food

The lobster special is great. Free Bloomin' Onion most Mondays. We love the dark rye bread fresh from the onion. We enjoyed the Triple Sampler dessert tray.

I've visited Outback Steakhouse more than a few times. Each time I've eaten, the food has not been very good. I was there again on 4/6/15 with my family as my parents wanted to treat my boyfriend and I to dinner with a few gift certificates they had. I was very leary but said ok, maybe the food will be...

This was a less than satisfactory visit on a slow Tuesday night. It began with the hostess seating us at a booth in the bar area when there was ample seating available. Unknown to us, our server was to be the bartender who had other responsibilities and did not give good attention to diners. He forgot requests and made an... More

My wife and I have patronized this location since it initially opened and have watched as it went from consistently great to hit and miss. The last few visits lead me to believe they are on their way to again being consistently great. Bruce was out server and he did a great job. My daughter's chicken strips were good. My... More

We had to wait way too long for our drinks, way to long for our food. When the food came out not everybody's food came out at the same time, and a few of us got part of our meal and had to wait on the rest. After waiting way to long several of us had cold food, some had... More

We have always gotten the same quality of food every time we visit. Their fillet is the best and most delish! Service is usually great , even at the bar.

I have my wife a choice of 3 restaurants for our date night - none of them were Outback - it didn't even occur to me to go there. Not sure why. She mentioned outback because of their fish selection, which surprised me, so we went. The first thing I noticed was the decor was nicer than expected (my expectations... More

Service was great and food was excellent as always, and although had been up all night and most of the day, our food arrived fast and was of the obvious quality you would expect from Outback Steak House.

This Outback use to be great, then became okay, then mediocre....now just plain lousy. The prices keep going up while the portions and quality keep going down. Food is so salted that it is barely edible. My wife ordered a medium steak that was well done. They did give us another when she refused to eat it (in a doggie... More

We stopped in Outback to have lunch at 11:30 on a Saturday morning. We were the first ones there! We assumed we would have excellent service being only ones there. When we got in there was 6 servers, the hostess, the shift manager and the general manager. The hostess was so quiet you couldn't hear her speak. The waitress we... More
