“Consistent - fair prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Outback i good value if you avoid the overpriced (and over-calored) appetizers) and stick to what they do best, steak and salads.

“As good as any-Great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

An Outback may be an Outback, but I've hit a few duds in my travels. Great staff here, very friendly and excellent service. Made the mistake of stopping when we got into town at night, forgetting it was Mother's Day. Well it was still packed at 9 at night, but the staff moved things along well, had space at and near the bar, and even after the worst day in the restaurant business the food was still excellent and the staff, who had to be tired still going strong with smiles and super service. Top Outback locale

“OMG!!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

I have been to several outbacks. Menu didn't include all of our favorites. Was there only 10 minutes. The salad had a bug in it. We let the manager know and left immediately.

“great food, service, and now open on weekends for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Outback is a classic, and this location is a great Outback in the tradition. Food is fast to arrive with great range from outback menu Service is excellent--- really good servers and fast to deliver. I just went for lunch for the first time on Saturday-- so glad they're now open on weekends for lunch--- and with a nice menu specifically for lunch (lower prices than for dinner). Downside: this location is often VERY busy with waiting times-- so it helps to go at off peak times. Also, it's loud at peak times--- so dont plan a quiet intimate discussion!

“Great bar staff, confused kitchen”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Bar staff is GREAT! Charming, rememver us and what we drink even though we only come once a month or so. Steaks are a good value..not great but generally quite tasty. But over and over again the kitchen staff delivers the wrong thing, or only one of our meals or otherr such mistakes reqlly taking the pleasure out of the meal.
