“Food as Outback Does - Service Better - All good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2011

Appreciate this Outback in BR. Actually did pick-up/take out this time (adopted a pet from the huricanes earlier and needed to attend be with the little gaffer and not sit in restaurant). Was staying at the Holiday Inn nearby ... called in the order (order-taker was VERY good and knew her stuff - AND was actually friendly!) .... walked ocver with doggie :) .... food perfect and walked out to us as dog was on a walk-about exploring (totally unexpected that staff would do that; noted; appreciated!!!!).

WHoever is attendin gthis location is doing everything right ... at least in this one traveller's case they did!

Food good as Outback does!

“Typical Outback!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2011 via mobile

The great thing about Outback is you know what to expect. Good menu selection, quick and courteous service. Good for a weeknight when all the great privately owned restaurants are booked. Perfect for the Ski Crowd in Winter!

Food and service were excellent. We were seated immediately, service provided upon request, food was cooked as we requested. Would return.

“Don't eat there”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2011

We ordered a full rack of ribs which turned out to be a 1/2 rack anywhere else. They do not include a salad with your entree' and the baked potato was the smallest we had ever seen. Will not eat at this Outback again.

“Good food, Seating a problem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2011

Listen girls who seat people. I can't fit in your tiny booths. I am 7 months pregnant with twins. Don't tell me it is a problem to set me at a half booth because no one is here to work yet. I am so tired of that. Larger people need more room use your eyes and do your job. I will be little again in about 6 months and I am going to ask for a half booth again to see if I get the same answer. Food is good and wait staff is better than the hostess.
