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

Love outback, NOT. I did love outback but not anymore. We waited long to get seated and nobody was there. The restaurant was empty. Our food was cold. Our potatoes were not done, our steak was mostly fat. Somebody has been letting the place go down. It must be new employees and management. I'm so disappointed.

First of all, I need to say this has been my husband and I's favorite place to eat in the past. Not any more. He always gets the same thing--chicken and ribs. This time, even though it was evening, the portion was about a third of what it usually is. For $15.99, you do expect a decent portion. This was... More

We had to wait about 45 minutes, but there was room to sit at the bar. (Love those "Wallabydarn" drinnks!) It was prom night, so it was crowded. Our food was delicious, hot when it arrived, and the waitress was very attentive. It was noisy, but not too bad. We try to make it a point to stop here every... More

Last night we had dinner. When we walked in around 7:15pm there was no one waiting at the host station to great us. We waited several minutes before someone appeared to greet us, and take us to a table. Server was OK, but didn't seem to know the menu that well. Everyone's food was excellent, and there were lots of... More
