What a delightful time with friends, sharing memories, updates and good food. Our server, Chelsea, was attentive, knew the menu, offered suggestions and took care of our dining needs. We will continue to visit this Outback as the prices are reasonable.

Our experience here does not reflect the experiences we have had at other Outbacks. We ordered drinks. Our bloody marys tasted fine. It was the presentation that was poured. Three olives and a lime slice would just thrown in the mason jar. We ordered the triple appetizer. The blooming onion petals were burnt to a crisp. My wife ordered a... More

Came here because we had a gift card for it. Definitely the worst outback I've ever eaten at. I think they need new cooks. Had the sampler appetizer to start. Onion pedals over cooked. Mac and cheese bits way to cheesy couldn't even take the macaroni. Chz fries were good. For dinner we both orders a steak I had prime... More

My son and I stopped in for lunch this weekend and we had such a great server. Additionally, our food was cooked just as we requested. If I lived closer I would visit more often.

I meet someone here for a business lunch. Both of us ordered the steak salad. When the salad arrived, it had way to much dressing with an excess amount of blue cheese. The steak was very tough. The waitress had to be waved down for additional water. On top of that. The light above our booth flickered off and on... More

30. On a steak that was so fibrous and chewy that I barely ate half...cold hard baked potatoes and tomatoe salad dressing that was far more spicy than usual. Asked 4 times for more iced tea and never got it. A ruined birthday dinner.

We thought we would try the new location on a Thursday afternoon . It wasn't busy got right in. Very friendly staff. We ordered the onion petals app and it was greasy. My husband had the wood fired salmon and it was awesome . I had a bowl of potato soup and requested the caramel cookie with vanilla ice cream... More

Had just gotten back from our summer vacation in the mountains of N.C. Was looking forward to a good steak so ordered the fillet and a blooming onion. The onion was half burned and the fillet tasted like a mouth full of cotton. No more.

The new building is a lot better (location, modern, cleaner) but our experience there was not great last Sunday. It took us over an hour to receive our entrees and it wasn't busy at all. They forgot to add the toppings to my steak and when they went to rectify this they melted the blue cheese on top but by... More

Recently in town for UF event - they were not even remotely prepared! This is not necessarily the problem.... it was how it was handled. Ran out or potatoes - server said, "I can see if I can get you something else" no bread brought and when asked, the waitress said, "our bread machine isn't working very well today so... More
