When asked if they could put only lettuce and tomatoes in my mother's tacos because she is allergic to cilantro they said no....it would not be enough to fill up the tacos! Really!!! I ordered the new Chopped steak with onions, mushrooms and red wine sauce. The onions were not cooked, there was only a boy a tablespoon of sauce... More

Outback Steakhouse is a good choice for a steak, chop, or seafood. I previously loved their blooming onion as an appetizer, but they have changed it too much from the original and I don't enjoy them as much as I did in the past and have stopped ordering them. That said their other dishes are still excellent, well prepared, and... More

This was my first time going to Outback. I told the waitress (Sue) and as a surprise she gave us a complimentry Blooming Onion. I hardly ever order steak but I was very impressed with how they cooked mine. I like it well done and to my joy it was cooked perfectly, not dry or hard to chew. There were... More

Hey Michael Z. L. You must be mistaken about where u had your bad experience, because Outback DOESNT offer a filet with bacon. The food, the staff, everything is always top notch!

This place doesn't even try. They already have the crowd but it is by far, the worst Outback I have ever dined at. I have gone several times yet the one thing that is consistent with this location is that somehow, they will screw up your order. Last year, I took my dad. He order his steak medium rare. they...

We've been a few times and the food is always awesome. They have online ahead seating available now -- not a reservation, just to add you to the current wait list. Love their steaks and their lunch portions/offerings are great as well.

We had a great dinner and the service was top notch. The manager even came by to apologize when my 14 year old sons steak was a little under cooked and was redone. The food was good but when I go out I look for great service and this Outback served it up. Good job.

Outback is usually one of my favorites. They have been becoming a hit or miss. They brought out our steaks while we were only in the middle of our salads. By the way the wedge salad was sweet. The description did not state there would be extra sweet sauce added. When we got to the steaks all 3 were raw.... More

You go for the Blooming Onion w/extra sauce of course, you stay for the steak & baked potato (yummy). The food is good most of the time and we have had a grisslie steak every once in awhile but the wait staff always takes care of it so you get a decent steak. So we always go back for more!
