“Not Impressed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Our hotel was next door to this restaurant so we decided to walk over and grab some dinner and bring it back to the hotel. We wanted to order drinks to go, but they wouldn't let us. Which is completely understandable. The two ladies who took our order were both very nice, but the food was absolutely terrible.

“Excellent Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Tried the Prime Rib, I received an end cut (did not ask for it) could not eat two bites, hard to cut / chew, bordering on shoe leather. Our server was excellent, she brought the "Prime Rib' back to the kitchen and ordered me a small special sirloin, which was great. Sides were ok too....
I'm not in a hurry to return.

“Southern hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

We have Outbacks in Maryland, but visiting later at night, when we arrived in N.C., could sometimes be a challenge for servers. Not our server! She was a soon to be college student who not only gave us excellent service, but provided us with names of smaller restaurants near the beach for breakfast. And she was so right!
Food was hot, prepared just the right way and seasoned deliciously. We enjoyed this visit and will visit again when we are UNCW.

“Excellent rack of lamb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Normally I am not much for restaurant chains but this is my go to place when I feel like rack of lamb. For $22, you get a full rack of lamb, eight chops, all perfectly cooked to order, accompanied by a baked potato. Normally a few chops go home with me and make a nice lunch in the future. They also serve an excellent sangria.
