So we were staying nearby while we were passing through and we decided to have a dinner a little close to home. Our server was very attentive (but in a good way) and friendly. He did seem a little hesistant about serving two Aussie's but the outback steakhouse has good sized steaks for all appetites and the sides were great.... More

We made a reservation for 6:00. Upon arriving, we were told it would be a 30 minute wait. After 30 minutes, an employee asked us if a high table would be okay. We had an elderly lady with a cane and a small child that needed a high chair so that table would not work. She told us it would... More

Had dinner here and was told of specials by the somewhat unsure server. Me and my friend placed an order, was told that both were out of stock. Placed a 2nd order, again out of stock. 3rd order (we had another backup in place this time), and about 30 minutes after that 3rd order the food was delivered. The center... More

OK let me preface this by saying it was mothers day. 10 minutes of waiting so I thought wow. So they sat us in the back next to the kitchen. The entire time it was bang, crash, bang, cussing, yelling runner, and employees screaming at each other. Was not sure what all the crashing sounds were, maybe they had some... More

No wait (but it was a Tuesday afternoon) and just grabbed a seat at the bar. I had a sweet tea in my hand and an onion in less than ten minutes. The bartender was great and the manager made it a point to say hello and ask how my food was. Definitely going back.

We stopped while traveling with friends and all had steaks. I took one bite of my ribeye and that was enough. It was bland. I figured it was just me, but when I reheated it the next day it still was still bland. I paid $25 for it and expected more. Service was a little slow at first, but got... More

My husband and I love to go to Outback and sit at the bar. The bartender Doug, is great, makes awesome drinks, and always ensures everything is perfect. We have NEVER been disappointed with him and we actually plan our date night dinners for when we know he will be there. Thank you Doug for always taking care of us!

Alice spring chicken was good. Bloomin Onion was too greasy, Steak quesadillas were good, but small portioned.

So on a visit with the family, we decided to try the Order Online, and Car Pick-Up Option. WOW! Will definitely use this feature again. On-line service has all the details for side, and options for each meal, and the Car PickUp where you don't have to get out is great. Especially when the restaurant is extremely crowded on a...
