Nothing bad, nothing special. Menu and prices same as pretty much every other Outback. Restaurant is loud, but the facilities are clean and the waitresses are really friendly and helpful. Food is good, but a little pricey (but that's normal for Outbacks). Worth a visit if you want Steak, but if you're looking for a really special meal, look elsewhere... More

My wife and I visited Outback last night for the first time in many years. I can't say whether it's this location or in general, but it seems to be showing its age. Hostess was nice and pleasant and we only had about a 5 minute wait for a table. No longer using the vibrating pager I remember. Wasn't too... More

I had the shrimp griller. There was an ample amount of shrimp but the rice was super salty; and I really like salt. So for me too have noticed it had to be extra salty. My brother had his steak well done. He really likes it cooked well but not to the point of being dry. Unfortunately his steak was... More

Food was cold but good. Service was bad. Bad service and the restaurant was not even busy. I ordered steak and brought the A1 sauce literally 8min later with no exaggeration. Also order dessert and just decided to leave cuz it took them a long while.

Once a excellent steak house is now a cheap meat and poor managed place to avoid. When we arrived the place was 90 percent empty. First they seated us within 3 feet of the bathroom doors. We requested anywhere else. After waiting another 10 minutes they took us around to another booth which turned out to be 5 feet from... More

Went there for a family dinner. There was not enough servers working and it was a full house. We waited for a while waiting for someone to take our drink order. Our server was rude and hardly checked us, I had to continualy ask was service.

As a family this is everyone's favorite restaurant. Bloomin onion so good ... My kids say they don't like onion but eat it. Kids Mac and cheese really good ... I now cook the same recipe at home and it's a hit with ever kid in the school. The brownie desert is so good also. We go here 12 -... More

I've always liked Outback, they have good food and service. At this particular one they seemed short staffed and the food was a bit to salty. So salty that I did not finish my meal.
