Early Valentine lunch

Got the Outback Special. Couldn't cut it. I'm not sure if the knife was that dull or the steak that tough. And the "loaded" potato was only warm and barely had any bacon, chives etc. Didn't send the food back because I got the feeling there was more of the same out back. Won't be back soon.

While our waiter was a nice guy, he missed on a few points like recommending the Outback Burger. While the meat was ok, it had a very pre-fabricated once frozen feel to it, my burger roll was crumbly dry and over-aged. I guess that it is a steak house but usually expect burgers to be good at those places.

Had dinner there one night with no problem. returned with a group of 9 an it was a disaster....no service and everything was very slow and wrong. I feel Outback is slipping in lots of ways.

My first and last visit to an Outback Steakhouse. Found my steak overcooked to my liking and my baked potato was very dry. For the money, should have been better.

For the category chain family oriented restaurants, Outback is okay, better than many (perhaps not as good as Long Horn or Texas Road House or Salt Back). We stopped in at 7:00 on a Friday night and after a 20 minute wait were seated. Service was good despite it being full. The food was okay. My daughter's potato-bacon-chedder soup was... More

Been to other Outbacks in the area and didn't care for them. However, my husband and I met another couple for lunch on 8/30 and were able to order from the dinner menu which is what we wanted. We all had either fish or steak and it was delicious. There was an issue with my steak being overcooked but the... More

They do a nice job of providing consistently great service and food. It's nice to know you can count on it regardless of the location.

Traveling on business, our team has been here a few times. The service is always good. I have had the prime rib (medium rare) and the outback special (medium rare) - the cooks do a good job of preparing the steaks to the liking of the customers. Mine have always been medium rare when ordered medium rare - I did... More
