Our service was horrendous. Not typical of how Outback staff usually is. We had two people kinda taking care of us, they seemed like they were "on something". IMO Was not impressed with this location at all....and I would not return.

I ordered the pork chop and it was awful. Our server was excellent and the other three in the party enjoyed their entree, the blooming onion was good, the drinks cold and refreshing. The blooming onion is one of my favorite appetizers and I will return but pass on the pork chop.

Well today we eat there and the fire alarm went off. No one informed us why or if we should take action. The alarm went on for approx 10 minutes, by which time the food was cold. Nothing was offered from our server, just felt we were expect to carry on as normal. We did however get complementary appetisers on... More

Outback has an unlimited soup and salad offer for lunch that is good. steaks are always hit and miss. Either undercooked or overcooked. Service can also be iffy sometimes depending on who the server is. They have a nice soup and salad offer for lunch that is good. Window sills were dusty and had dead flies on them during our...

I used to love this place but service and quality of food are both falling like a stone. If they don't fix things I'm betting they will only last a few more years. Sad.

We had a birthday dinner with 7 Persons, all steaks were perfect grilled as ordered, except one which was done instead of medium. Spoke to the service person and we immediately got a replacement. Very good service. We really enjoyed our dinner here.

Went here with a group of five people, each of us had steaks. One thing I like about Outback is that when you select how you want your steak done, that is what they consistently do. My medium-rare is always exactly that. Note that you can ask for any steak done with either their traditional seasonings, or "wood-fired". The menu... More
