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

We went for my husband’s birthday celebration and had a dozen people. The new Outback seems to be smaller and the tables are very close together. It was a very crowded evening, however they sat us quickly as I called ahead the night before. It seemed as though the portions are much smaller, especially the salad. My husband ordered a... More

So as a family, we try to enjoy new experiences and diverse restaurants to everyone in the house to enjoy. So we decided to try Outback the appetizer was very good some pretzel bread with melted cheese. Delicious but the rest of the food was just ok. The steak had not much flavor, which was the main reason for our... More

Outback is pretty much the same everywhere you go - except that in a college town like Gainesville the wait staff really can very depending on the current round of college students on the job. My main comment in this short review is that I really dislike the new location. It somehow seems more crowded and loud that the old... More

Tried the special Aussie menu with crab stuffed lobster. Lobster was over cooked but server immediately reordered it and manager came by to check on it. Crab stuffing was great.

My son and I ordered online, paid online (including tip), and then pulled into a curbside pick-up space. it was ready by the time we arrived and the delivery person was quick and friendly. 😎 We drove to a near- by lake and had a wonderful meal! The food was great and we loved "picnicking" in nature. Great little break... More

Dropped in for lunch and ordered their all you can eat soup and salad lunch. Excellent decision. Salad was fresh, crisp, the perfect amount of dressing and I even brought some home with me. The French Onion Soup was excellent, the cheese covered the bowl, the beef broth had a definite beef flavor base, there were plenty of onions and... More

Chose the "new" location for a birthday dinner with my wife. The place was not busy at 6 so we were seated quickly. The food was great and as ordered. Received a free dessert for our occasion. Service was awesome, might have been because of recent poor reviews. Try the new shareable sangria drinks, very good.

Thank Edward R
