I rrived in town later than planned, but earlier than the rest of the team, so was on my own. Have not been to an Outback in a while but knew the bar was always a good option for the solo diner. Everything was as I remember, a good enough steak, with healthier sides (ceasar and broccoli are always my... More

We have eaten here several times while traveling. The food and the service has been very good each time. We don't care for the cucumbers they put in their regular salads, but that's the chain's own recipe so it's the way it is. We just dig around them. My wife thought she would try a Cesar salad because no cucumbers... More

I hadn't been to an Outback in some time and saw this one so I thought we would try it. The food was good as was the service however the temperature of the restaurant was like a cooler. When I mentioned this to the hostess hoping to be seated in a warmer area she told me there was no warmer... More

We've been to this Outback multiple times. The service is always top notch. The blue cheese chopped salad is fantastic and the ribeye is wonderful. The kitchen knows how to cook a steak.

We've eaten here several times, have not a had problem. Good food and very good service. Just good service is difficult to find anymore. We were a little disappointed with the steaks this time. I had the filet and it seemed somewhat tough and I found a piece of gristle. My wife had the rib-eye and she thought it seems... More

Was in town on business and needed an early dinner that I knew would give me a predictable time frame with which to eat and no surprises afterwards since my schedule was tight. If you know me, I normally don't do chains. But anyway, bread was warm, salad fresh and not over dressed, and steak was cooked perfectly and seasoned... More

I used to love to go to Outback. Good steaks and a blue cheese salad that was amazing. I loved how they seasoned the vegetables and would get two servings instead of a potato. We had not been for quite a while since we grill often at home...but it has just been too hot to cook outside. Service was great...... More
