My 3 sisters and I visited this restaurant believing we would have tender steaks and good service. The steaks were so cooked to a crust and so tough We had to cut and tear our steaks into small pieces to eat them. I did tell the server, Gregory, and he offers to get us another steak after we were nearly... More

The lamb chops and broccoli were cooked to perfection! The service was great and the family was very pleased. The location was not in a heavily trafficked area.

If you like the steady eddy concept of an Outback this is it. They are a classic for the chain. We were seated promptly and our waitress arrived quickly in spite of the place being busy. The service was good and the staff was friendly and attentive. The salads were delivered and the staff waited for us to finish before... More

No longer have Outback's in Canada, so when in the States, we try to hit one up as they are normally a very consistent and tasty option. All of us had steaks - all cooked exactly like we wanted. Baked potatoes were excellent (loaded of course). And like always, the staff was very friendly. Tried a new desert - a... More

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
