“Very Disappointing For An Outback”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

We eat at Outback in our town atleast 3-4 times a month. While returning from the coast we stopped at the one in San Angelo for dinner. We seated ourselves right away in the bar area in a booth. It was late; maybe 7:45 so we decided to just have salads. We ordered 2 salads and mac n cheese for our little one. 45 minutes later our food arrives. We have never waited this long for a full dinner at our location; as a matter of fact we are in and out within 45-50 minutes. Had to flag server down for ice tea, ranch dressing and our check. I am glad this wasn't our first encounter with Outback...we wouldn't have a bad taste in our mouth. We almost always see a manager at our location; here we never saw 1. This was a very disappointing visit for us - but it reflects the management at the various locations. Maybe this one needs additional training with his/her staff?

“Great food but gets really loud when crowded.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

I live to go here at lunch because it's a great restaurant but it gets way too crowded and noisy at night. Sometimes the wait gets a little long waiting on a table if you have more than 2 in your group. You can't hear other people in your group talk, so not the place to go if you want a quiet meal or to carry on any meaningful conversation. Otherwise it's great.

“It was wonderful.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2012

I had Victoria's filet and it was so tender you could cut with a fork. The service was excellent and very friendly staff.

“Disappointing, high prices, food so-so, TERRIBLE service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2012

Went after church. Although grateful we had money to eat out with (which is a rare treat for us), took 30-40 min to get our food. My husbands' was mostly BREADED on thin chicken fry steak, watered down tea, no refills until time for us to leave, although the young man was pleasant we had very poor service and this place, was not busy or short-staffed! Way over priced for the food. Oh, we did get extra bread! Guess that was the $31.00 value??? Will NOT go back or recommend this Outback to anyone.
