This used to be an excellent place for steaks and other food. The quality has really gone down. Steak was thin and tasteless. Not a very good experience.

Service was good. Lunch was good but not excellent. Was a quick chain after church when we had other obligations in the afternoon.

Good service and atmosphere. A little pricey on some items, but quality of meals were good. The upgrade to asparagus with my meal was well worth it!

Whitney M. Provided very good service to three of us. I had the 22 oz ribeye, my wife the smaller one and my daughter a half rack of ribs. Everything was tender and well prepared. The meal came with choice of potatoes and one side. We had the baked sweet potato and the caesar salad. The atmosphere was cordial and... More

Another multi location theme restaurant where the Steak House motif is Australian. It's basically pub food with a few steaks, chops, and lamb chops rounding out the menu. Last year they opened for lunch in many locations including the State Street one. A good choice for family dining lunch or dinner. Neither cheap nor expensive, but there is something on... More

We met here for a family birthday party. From the start the service was phenomenal. We were waiting for one family member but they treated us beautifully. The blooming onion was delicious. My steak--a 6 Oz. sirloin-- was really good but other family members were not as happy with their tough steaks. It was a good experience although the food... More

I thought I would try something different and I was NOT disappointed! Ribs were falling off the bone and had a great tangy sauce. I chose Outback because I could walk from my hotel. I'll be back tomorrow for a big juicy steak!!!

We enjoyed the Outback Special Steak. It was prepared exactly to order. It was accompanied by a delightful fresh salad and baked sweet potato! Our kids enjoyed their selections from the kids menu. Our waiter was repeatedly on time with details . Noise level was a bit high for conversation at our table .
