“Not as good as I remember.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

My husband and I had an early dinner late lunch here on Saturday around 3:30.
We were seated right away, our waiter Scott was helpful and courteous.
I ordered the surf and turf, filet medium rare, and lobster tail. My husband ordered the lamb.
My filet was cooked perfectly to order, however it lacked flavor. The lobster tail was ok, a little overcooked. My husband said on a scale of 1-10 he would give the lamb a 4.
Considering the price of this meal, we overpaid by quite a bit.
This was not the Outback I recall! Total bill, without alcoholic beverage about $80.
Oh and did I mention the overcooked blooming onion? not so good!

“My celebration place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

This is the original Outback and my children are now 27 and we have been going to Outback for all of our family celebrations since they were 8..They love when you get coke if you ask they will put in lots of cherries and we always ask for cherries on the side. They always welcom lage families. You never feel rushed. The management staff always come by and check to make sure all was good which if not will be quickly corrected and more..I love the Prime Rib, Sirloin and Alice Spring Chicken. ohhh dont forget the ribs my mothers favorite. The happy hour is fantastic a fun place but is a family place. So go and you will Enjoy...

“Great value in Brandon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2012

If you can hit this at happy time, house wine 2 for 1. Service is always good and the food while not quite the quality of the top tier steakhouses is very good. Probably one of the best value meals from a solid chain restaurant.
