“Outback in Missin Valley”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

What happened? Used to be my favorite
place for Salmon. Now the portions are smaller they don`t use the same seasoning and the vegetables were hard. The blummin onion was soggy and the bread hard. The steaks all had a grey hue to them and were bad cuts of meat.

“Superb Dinner & Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

After a long 10 hour drive from Lodi, CA the Outback was exactly what the doctor ordered. Relaxing, consistent good service; and consistent great food.

“Wow! Home of steak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Classic! No steak home like Outback. I was really thrilled. I got the cocktail I have been missing, plenty of wine and food. The steaks, indescribable. Good food and value for your money.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

Sitting next to the booth of someone who seemed to be a employee altered our experience. Talking loud enough for us to hear about her new piercing, and having multiple waitresses crowded around their booth (which overflowed into ours) wouldnt be such a problem if it wasnt all night long. When the hostess dropped all the silverware she was wrapping in napkins, it looked as though she put it back in the bucket she was pulling the clean ones from... we politely asked our waitress to verify withouth accusing... but when the hostess came over and accused our next door booth of b*tching about dropping silverware and using dirty in the napkins, ouch..

overall the food was ok, we've been coming here for years and always appreciated the value and good food, but the last few times we realize why we dont come as often anymore.

Waitress was very polite.
