I remember Outback being one of those places I'd wait for a table. The food was great, that onion thing was yum!!!! So I thought a quick lunch would be a nice treat. It was just ok. Service was vacant and the food was something I could've gotten at IHOP for way less. Lunch there feels like an afterthought, the... More

We ate here due to wanting a steak and it was close to Confirm Suites (2 lots down). The food was fantastic including pumpernickel bread, great sirloin and scrumptious salads, sweet potato and broccoli (huge pieces). The waitress was on point and kept our food coming in good order and our drinks filled. Would definitely eat here again.

We got in a little late and walked to the Outback from our hotel. The food was good and our server was even better! We really enjoyed our experience here.

The man who greeted us and took us to our table didn't even bother giving us the menu. He went and greeted another customers and took them to their table. I had to call him and ask for menu. Our waitress was ok but not as enthusiastic and friendly as I expect her to be. Came to the table only... More

We had a late lunch. Restaurant cleared out with only a couple tables of diners. We only saw our server to order and to pay. Another server brought our food. No refills offered. She tossed our check on the table on the fly by the table. Didn't even get a chance to ask for more to drink. Had to ask... More

We had two steak dinners, 1 was a sirloin and one was a ribeye. Both were ordered medium rare. Both steaks came out with cold red blood running out of them when cut. The manager informed us that this was how Outback serves steak medium rare. This was a shock as we have been eating at other Outbacks for more... More

Have been to this Outback Steakhouse a few times and the food seems to have gotten worse. Ordered a filet mignon and had to send back. The prices are high and food not worth it.

We go here monthly and have seen noticeable decline in food quality and service. Too bad. Use to be a place you could count on. Only thing now is high prices and cold food.

The Outback in Sanford is the worst one I have dined in. Usually in an Outback you can count on the steak being cooked the way you want it. Not this one. They also once brought me a ribeye steak when I ordered prime rib.
