Once again, we were not disappointed. Before going to the Theatre Winter Haven, we had dinner at the Outback. Showing our theater tickets got us a free Bloomin Onion...yummy. I enojoyed the Outback Burger, cooked medium rare...perfection. Yes, I know they have steaks of all kinds but knowing we had to leave gave us ample time to eat and enjoy... More

Always a good place to go. My steak was not cooked right and they made a new steak for me no questions ask. The onion blossom is always a favorite our ours.

We visited our local Outback on a weekday at lunchtime and even though they were super busy the service we received was fantastic. We both ordered the centercut sirloins with the baked sweet potatoes and steamed mixed vegetables. What a delicious meal we enjoyed!!! The steaks were cooked perfectly to our order and the flavors were wonderful. Outback steaks have... More

This was one of our favourites. Whilst the mains seemed a little average from previous years visits, the bloomin onion and the bread is beautiful. This place has a great atmosphere and we will continue to return when on holiday there. Outback has become a staple for our Orlando holidays. Service is also very friendly and atmosphere is casual so... More

Outback is a chain restaurant so you get the same food and service you get when you go to any other outback. It's difficult for them to stand out one from another.

The service was alright but slow. The food was good but the steak had a lot of grizzle in it but the rest of the meal was fine.

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
