“Excellent Lunch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

Went for lunch today, for the first time to this Outback. The food was excellent and each of us had a lunch combo. Miss that there is no relish any more for the burgers. Maybe they will stick it again.

Tracey is the new GM and waiting permanent assignment. She alone is the reason we will return. Management needs to keep this jewel in place or we might hire her for one of our restaurants! Lol

Great experience.

“Great steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

Had a super meal and great service by the wait staff. One of the better Outback's I have eaten at. Just a little tricky finding the place.

“I have had better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

We have been here before and thought we would give it another try as the last time was just an ok experience, as one would think that a steak restaurant would be fantastic. Again, it was just a piece of meat, that one could easily do at home. We tried the special they advertise, but do not tell you about the premier costs, as it lists soups, but if you order the french onion, there is another dollar charge. Premier sides costs a lot more, so the 11.99 special can easily add up to a large ticket item. Service was good but it would be easier to just buy a steak at your local grocery and grill, add a baked potato, and make a salad, and save the trip.

“Close”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

This was really close to our hotel. The food was fine. Nothing special. One of the workers was on her phone in the restaurant. She kept looking up so I'm thinking she wasn't suppose to be doing this.

“Good food & service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

Outback doesn't have the quality steaks it did when it first opened, but this food was good and worth the price. Clean restaurant right near a highway exit.
