We had a tasty meal with good service at this long-time Outback location. We had not eaten here for five years after a graduation dinner turned into a disaster due to poor service and fatty, unappetizing meat. We decided enough time had passed to give them another try. The server was friendly and accommodating. When you are placing your order... More

there is a special offering with a coupon you can receive an upgrade of the size of your meat and at the end you will be so satisfied and happy with the size and taste of the food served, the customer service is good and the place is attractive.

I had never been to this particular restaurant although although my dining partner came here frequently. Outback in general is a favorite of mine also. This one did not disappoint me. I got my usual special steak and it was good as usual. Service was good, environment was good, no complaints. I had a good time and would certainly recommend... More

I ordered the prime rib, medium rare. However what I was served was raw and cold in the center, even the fat was still white. The sides that came with the dish were dismal in size, bland, and greasy. This place is a total disappointment. Stay away!

I love a good steak and this Outback Steakhouse was our go-to place to get one. Not any more. I "called ahead" and the "hostess" put me on hold long enough for me to drive there! Well, maybe not, but I was on hold for a long time. Finally, she came back on the line, but was still talking to... More

I love Outback, but this visit was disappointing. We arrived at noon on a Saturday and the place had only a handful of customers. We were seated quickly, and our server took our order promptly. He was very pleasant, friendly, polite, and attentive, but it turns out he was dealing with a slow bar and kitchen. He thanked us for... More

Off of Rt 50 so easy access and ample parking in a shopping center. Excellent and accommodating staff, good food, friendly atmosphere. Not just a steakhouse, also has fish/chicken/etc. Children's menu/full adult menu.

We were there in January 2016 to celebrate an event. The reception, ambience and the food was really excellent. I ordered a stead/shrimp with broccoli as a side. The broccoli was just fantastic. It had a "secret" seasoning and was cooked to perfection - not too hard and not too soft. That was one of the best broccoli I have... More

The food is lovely and cooked to how you want it, if it come out and not exactly right, they will take it back and ammend it. The staff are very friendly and they called us a taxi at the end of the meal so we could get back to our hotel. The menu is not vast but there is... More
