I recently took my family to OB and found the food to be quite spendy for what you get. My steak was tiny and it had fat on it. It is just okay, I won't go back for a while. It definitely is not a healthy dining restaurant, lots of oil and butter.

I love going to Outback. Love their prime rib the Bloomin onions my family likes the lamb in the ribs too. They have such a good variety. Even if they seemed busy your sat down quickly your orders taken and you're not having to wait for very long. Best steakhouse in Opelika Alabama.

We usually order a double salad and an entrée. My husband loves the coconut shrimp while I choose a small filet. The food seems overly salty for my taste and the portions seem smaller now than a few years ago but that's to be expected due to the price of food rising. The wait staff always seem to be welcoming... More

We were here for a Birthday dinner celebration. We have eaten at this location numerous times and have always had wonderful meals and service. We noticed this time that the menu's seemed to have changed a little and weren't quite as descriptive as they used to be, this led to two members of our party ordering drinks, that weren't what...

Eat there a lot. Always good place to eat. You will need reservations unless you enjoy waiting. Steaks can sometimes be a little tuff.
