We average going to Outback about once per year and each time we say we are not going back for awhile. Outback is supposed to have great steaks but each of ours were very dry and unfavorable, the same as the previous visit. The steaks are simply not worth what they cost. We have just now returned from Connor's Steak... More

If you are looking for great food, service and atmosphere Outback is the place. Our waiter Chase went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. The appetizers of chili cheese fries and onions were great!! My steak and sweet potato were cooked perfectly. I would very much recommend a visit soon!! Enjoyable and tasty!!!

We ate here with a small group for Father's Day. The place was packed out, but the crew was doing everything they could to get us in there. We ended up at a corner table and if I had had my choice of all the tables in the restaurant, I couldn't have picked a better spot. The food was fabulous... More

I dine here frequently and the food is always good and the service exceptional. Steaks are always cooked to perfection. I've tried several different entrees and have never been disappointed.

Outback in Madison is a typical very good Outback. The service is excellent, the food is always good. Very easy access just off highway 72. The steaks and blooming onion are great the Alice Springs Chicken is also very good. I have never had a bad experience at this restaurant very good place for lunch or dinner. Very friendly staff.

If I had a choice of my last meal, it would be the 16 ounce prime rib and loaded backed potato. I've been eating here for years and left pleased every time.

I went there last night with my girlfriend for dinner. We both ordered steak and saute mushroom as on side. We tried to finish the steak but not the mushroom. Food was fine last time we went........

Chicken ceasar salad, sirloin, filet,and salmon were enjoyed by our foursome. Soda, water, tea, fresh homemade bread, and salad accompanied our meal. Everything was very well prepared, appealing to the eye, and tasted delicious. Our waitress, although responsible for a very large crowd and multiple tables, did a fine job. She checked on us regularly, filled our drinks, asked if... More

This Outback is average. Overall it is a good place to eat. The wait staff is excellence. The appetizers are great. I like the small potion of the bloomin onion that they offer. The sirloin is better than the ribeye and 40% less. The quality of the Ribeye is just awlful.

As Aussies going to the USA, we never miss the OS for a steak - first time for us in Madison. It was great, as usual!
