It is a chain, so if you like Outback you should have a good experience here.

It is a chain restaurant, but it is one of our favorites. You can always get decent food for a decent price in a comfortable setting. This location is nice, near the shore. We got there a bit early and walked around; there are a few shops and several more restaurants in the same area. It sets... read more

The Outback is not a place I would typically have picked but my friends like it so away we went. I would normally like a trendy Cafe. I was surprised by the value we got which is the main reason for my 5 star rating plus Arthur out server was great! The martinis were yummy and at 8 bucks each... More

but we went with friends who eat there often. The restaurant was busy with local people as well as visitors. The service was great- very welcoming and very efficient. We all had appetizer portions. The clam chowder was creamy and fresh tasting with a kick of spice. The coconut shrimp is very very good. The batter is light and tasty.... More

Ate there twice - horrible both times. Loved every Outback I've ever eaten at on the mainland - not the same here. They couldn't even do the blooming onion right - greasy and the dipping sauce was watered down. Yuck!

We went here for lunch and sat by the bar. We ordered only two things and it took about an hour for our food to arrive. We didn't know why because it wasn't even busy. Our waitress was apologetic though and kept checking up on us. The food was great, so we'll be back! Just hope that next time we... More

We stopped in for a good steak dinner and where not disappointed!! As usual the Outback Steakhouse did not disappoint, and as it was extremely busy I think all patrons must have felt the same thing. Our waiter was very attentive and double checked back with us to ensure our drinks were full and we were satisfied with our meal.... More

Outback is always good so it is the wait staff that is important. It was very busy so the service was a little slow but what the heck your on vacation!

The Ahi appetizer was great. The food is too expensive and you will have a wait if you go after 7:00pm. Not worth the wait.

We've never been to an Outback before so maybe they are all like this. The portions were teeny weeny and thus, overpriced, though the dinner prices were comparable to everywhere else we had been. The service was decent though.
