“Friday night dinner”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Had to wait over an hour for our table even though they told us the wait was only 20 minutes. Granted it was a Friday evening but they should have known how long the wait was going to be. That is their business. We got our drinks and appetizers straight away. Then it was another 50 minutes before our meals arrived. One $18.00 steak was cold with a baked potatoe the size of a golf ball. The prime rib ($19.00) was luke warm. both were ordered medium. The steak was well done and the Prime rib was running blood. The other meals were fine. Not hot but OK. we finished up what we could eat and the waiter asked if we wanted one check? I said yes and he disappeared. He finally came back 20 minutes later. It took just short of 3 hours to have a simple dinner. If you are not blessed with unlimited time skip this one. If you like salad it's great. Anything hot....not so much.

“Good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

When we were given a list of places to eat and found Outback closeby, we immediately decided to visit. We do not have any Outbacks in our part of Ontario and enjoy the food. We were not disappointed. Despite being very busy, our food arrived quickly. The waiter was very helpful and very friendly as well.

“Well worth your time and money.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Went there for dinner on Friday, January, 18th. Really enjoyed our meal. The atmosphere was great, the food was excellent, best cooked most tender steak I have ever eaten. The salad and baked potato were also excellent. The dessert was scrumptious. Would highly recommend to anyone.

“Consistently the same in a good way”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Well managed resturant - staffing level is damn good considering they get slammed most weekend nights. Usually a line on Fri/Sat. Food consistent - service is usually excellent. Great bartenders. A little higher priced than equivalent type places but always good.
