As with all Outbacks the steaks are broiled in Ausie fashion and are good but mine usually seem a bit dry. They were crowded this night and understaffed. There were many open booths but they didn't seat people in them because they didn't have the...More

Ate here the evening before my son's deployment. We'd already decided going in he could have anything on the menu. Our waiter was courteous, attentive, prompt... he even played a couple of trivia rounds with us. He more than earned his tip when he told...More
