Our server took great care of us and basically put together all our meals by suggestive selling the steak promotional packages. Add cold beer and great desserts and we had a great experience!

Mt husband and I stopped at Outback on our way back from the airport. They were under staffed and a little busy. As a result, we got horrible service. The food was poor to medium and the waitress complained about being so busy--very unprofessional. What did she want us to do..wash dishes. All we ate was soup and salad so... More

So my husband and I took out my in-laws for dinner to celebrate the visit and it was very nice. The steaks were very tender and the apps were yummy as well. The bloomin onion was good but a bit greasy! A great time was had by all and would go again.

Outback in New London, Ct. doesn't disappoint. Steak is always made per request. So many "steak houses" can't seem to get the steak cooked correctly but it's always rare (how I like it)every time. Love the blooming onion. Staff is always knowledgable and polite. Also like that yo can call ahead for a table for two. Many restaurants won't do... More

We checked into our Hotel and this was the closest , since we have these at home it wasn't our first choice. But after driving we were ready to eat. Our server was great, food was awesome and came quickly . We were really happy to have made the choice. The food is very consistent at most of these restaurant's.

We ate here for my daughter's 22nd birthday on a rainy Friday night. The restaurant was quite deserted at around 8:30. Our steaks were excellent for the most part, but my son's was dry and overcooked. He ordered his medium well. The blooming onion did not disappoint and the side dishes of baked potatoes, shrimp and fries were all delicious.... More

Its been a while since we dined at the Outback. Always liked their specials and food until now. Friend and I ordered the 12.99 specials, she ordered steak, I ordered the Tilapia. The meals were passable, but the service deplorable. The young waiter was rude,impatient and upset we did not order cocktails and it showed. His vocabulary seem to consist... More

The ribeye steak sandwich was more fat than steak. The takeaway window is poorly marked and requires directions if phone in an order. When expressed this to staff the response was "yeah - we are hard to find"
