The last couple of times that I have eaten at Outback Steakhouse I have not been impressed. Place was not busy, 3 tables of people including my table. Had to wait 25 minutes for waitress to take our drink order. My steak was dry, not much on taste. Once we got our food the waitress seemed more attentive. Probably won't... More

We tried takeout for the first time from Outback. What a great dinner we had. I ordered online, 2 days before pick up, yes you can do that. Ordering on line was very easy the site walks you thru each item and each selection down to salad dressing and extra BBQ sauce. They even offer you free bread and butter,... More

The customer service at this restaurant is outstanding. Had an issue with something and the manager came right over to resolve the situation. We go here frequently, rarely ever have a problem and the waitstaff is excellent.

Above our expectations in both service and food quality. We both had the Victoria's filet with bearnase (sp?) sauce on the side, loaded potato and caesar salads. Our steaks were cooked perfectly. Our servers were Brandi and Lucy - ask for either with confidence.

We actually chose this restaurant because it was across the parking lot from our hotel..nice and close after a day of sightseeing....Service was great, it was very cool on a hot day..I ordered something (don't remember what) but they were out of it...which surprised me because it was just barely 5:00....I ordered the lamb instead and it was dynamite !!!...

Seated quickly and waited on immediately for drinks/appetizer. Two people had steaks, prime rib, which they thoroughly enjoyed. Vegetables were actually fresh and mashed potatoes were real potatoes. I had the 10 ounce bacon bourbon salmon; delicious and plentiful so I took a large piece home. One in our party had "bar" wine and said it was okay. Given this... More

We ate or had drinks here over the course of 3 days. The service was outstanding. Raven and Patty took unbelievable care of us. I can't thank them enough for the warmth and hugs. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone staying in New London or passing thru.

Beer is big and relatively cheap. Service is a little slow as they are understaffed. Food is predictable - that being said - they were great to accommodate us with raw veggies along with steak and fish. The steaks also were a little better than I normally expect from a chain. Ribeye and porterhouse were cooked exactly right as well.

Got there for an early dinner, our waitress hadn't punched in yet so the manager seated us and took our drink order. Very accomadating as I am on a special diet. We left there full with no dessert.
