We went Zip lining and stopped in for lunch. Great food, love the shrimp and salad. Started out with the appetizer blooming onion, always a great starter.

This place is one of the best Outback Steakhouse's you'll find. The staff is friendly and well trained. The food is well prepared and served quickly. The bar is also quite good. We're not franchise fans but we make an exception here.

We live in Ocala and have been going here for years. Overtime its has progressively gotten worse. Under or over cooked food missing sides lack of overall attention to detail are highlights of this location. Last night we decided to give it one more chance and what a mistake that turned out to be. First we were told it would... More

Service was great, trainee doing well. Speedy service and good steaks. It is worth it to spend an extra $1.49-$1.99 for the garlic and butter topping. My big issue is cleanliness.... see photos. Caked vents, dirty benches and dirty floors. We arrived well after lunch rush and well before dinner rush. Shame.

Time was when we had to wait two hours on a Friday night to get into our local Outback - and it as worth it. We planned on Outback at least once a month from our home in Boca Raton and it was a must visit when we spent the weekend at our farm in Ocala. Four years ago -... More

I enjoyed the Chicken on the Barbie with steamed veggies since I am on a diet. There were lots of veggies steamed just right.

We called ahead to see if they could accommodate gluten and egg allergies for a birthday meal. Gluten-free meals: no problem. Gluten-free desert: chocolate thunder. Fantastic! Unfortunately, they could not accommodate gluten- and egg-free desert. However, we brought a home-made gluten- and egg-free chocolate cupcake. The front manager, Juan, inquired about the cupcake and then suggested transforming it into a... More

We just ate here and had the steak tacos and a bloomin burger. The tacos were done exceptionally well and the steak melted in your mouth. The burger was exceptional. They also have an AARP discount and utilize the Dine In reward program. We'll return soon.

It all started when we sat down. Not a good start. It took the waiter forever to get to us. At this point I told my husband lets go we are not obligated to stay we only ordered drinks but he was in the mood for a steak. We ordered and I got a quesadilla and he got prime rib.... More
